COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Great Divide brews Titan IPA for hop disciples -- independent beer drinkers seeking out robust, flavorful beers characterized by their abundance of hops, flavor, aroma and bitterness. As a big aggressively-hopped India Pale Ale, Titan IPA fills this bill -- beginning with piney hop aromas and citrus hop flavors, and finishing with a rich, malty sweetness that is carefully balanced with crisp hop bitterness. 65 International Bittering Units (IBUs).

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2006 Pours clear and copper colored with a small white but sustained head. Aroma of citrus, pine, caramel sweetness, malt, some madeira, a bit of cardboard and some musty old sock. Big upfront hop flavor with a tongue coating resinous quality. Unusual hop character that is woody and herbal with sharp bitterness. Good body and mouth feel. Seems somewhat unbalanced in flavor...will have to drink a few more. Probably deserves a better rating for draught. It almost seems like a different beer. Maybe they need a new bottling line?

Hoppy, slightly fruity, and somewhat sweet. Pretty good overall, but a bit too much for me. Nice color, though, too.

Ya know what, this stuff is pretty cool. IPA’s are something that have been growing on me for quite a while now and finally I feel like I have not only a better understanding but also a better appreciation for this beer. Thi is definately one of the better ones out there. Good hops but not that overly hopped for the sake of being over hopped. Check this one out if you can.

Very Very Hoppy. Not a huge hop fan, none the less, I enjoyed the crispness and hop bite of a great example of the style.

Metalhead (628) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2005 Poured the color of tea with mild carbonation. Decent mouthfeel and aslightly sticky malt sweetness added to the hop presence. Not bad. Update 7-15-05. Bought some bottled in 11-04. Fricken awesome. Big pine,grrapefruit upfront followed by a nice malt balance. Almost 2 brews in 1.

HISTORICAL NOTE: WHILE ATTEMPTING TO RATE THIS BEER LAST NIGHT, I DUMPED IT INTO MY FAVORITE WOMAN’S COMPUTER, DESTROYING BOTH THE BEER AND THE LAPTOP. Bright coppery pour with lasting medium-body head. Cascade and floral nose, rich complex body, and tangy finish. This really helped cool and heal my tongue while eating hot chili. I will try this as often as possible.

I want to say its pretty standard but it isnt. Fairly well balaned with some decent hop umpf. Lightly grassy with some noticeable malt sweetness.

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 8, 2005
My kind of IPA. Big, unique blend of piney and orangey hop aromas, big juicy maltiness, bracing hop flavors and bitterness. Well balanced, tipping toward the hop side of the scales, of course.

green (186) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 8, 2005
Tasted at cellar temp. Pours golden brown. Huge fluffy, silky head, laced in distinct rings in an English pint glass. Slightly grapefruity aroma. Oakey, slightly buttery flavor with nutty overtones. Mouthfeel is slightly watery. Finish is bitter but it’s not a good kind of bitter, kind of a charred aftertaste. Seems to have the bitterness but not the sharpness and hoppiness of a great IPA. Decent, but out of balance and flawed in the finish. May be too warm.

A fairly dark and ruby colored brown. Poured with a very large white head. The aroma is a fairly massive orange peel and nutmeg. Also earthy hints. The taste is floral with orange peel and breadcrust. Very flavorful for a regular IPA. Notes of pine in the aftertaste. Fairly light mouthfeel. Very nice.
