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).

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - NOV 24, 2004
Copper color, clear, creamy sticky head, black widow type cobweb lacing. Nose of tasty rich malts, amarillo, cascade or centenial hops with a sweet floral candy note, only lightly cat-pissy. Taste is very rich & malty with sweetness & balanced bitterness. Well rounded and tasty finish.Thanks TTB!

pivo (2542) - GERMANY - NOV 22, 2004
Fresh hop nose, hazy orange color, huge sticky head. Soft, creamy grainy malt front with some cookie dough sweetness. Bitting hop end that is rather like chewing on a dandelion. Thinish. Overall a decent IPA true to style, but not outstanding.

sloth (2447) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - NOV 14, 2004
Medium size tan head, good retention and plenty of sticky lace. Lightly hazy copper color. Big C-hop nose, you know? Med/full bodied. Full flavored, big malts and hops. Lots of citrus, grapefruit and pine. Resiny mouthfeel with a solid malt backbone, toasty. An almost dry finish, nice bite. A well balanced IPA, freakin yummy! Thanks to kawa for a shot at this bad boy!

SDalkoholic (2124) - Linda Vista, California, USA - NOV 12, 2004
Deep copper brown with a opaque appearance that is barely visible through. Head is gone immediately after poured which isn’t much fun for a IPA. For some reason the flavor is flat and very hard to detect what ingredints make up the flavor. There is no denying the taste is bitter but the pine and citrus ddin’t come across well. Big shout to Kaggie97 for the beer, thanx bro!!

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2004
Pours very clear orange with a thin white head that laces well. Aroma is piney and earthy hops. The flavor is filled with hops, lots of pine and a lasting bitterness. Similar to a IIPA upfront, but with a more bitter and less alcoholic back end.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 14, 2004
The beer after its release from the 22-ounce brown bottle sets in the glass a slightly hazy copper color with a portly creamy light tan head, after its dissolution the lace forms a thin but obscuring sheet upon the glass. Nose has a nice spicy of aroma from the hops, underneath a sweet malt presence, citrus like in its crispness, start is sweet with a delightful malt presence, top is middling in its feel to the palate. Finish is biting in its acidity, the hops dynamic in their spiciness, very dry and lingering aftertaste, quite a nice IPA, and certainly worth the price of sampling.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - OCT 14, 2004
Cloudy, clay/pottery color with hints of ruby, orange and gold. Head is average thickness, but very long-lasting. Smells aromatically of pine, cedar, fresh fruit (melons and apricots), and malt. Taste is foceful with huge hop flavors. Grapefruit hops are the most dominant along with pine and sweet malt to keep it balanced throughout. Palate is extremely balanced. Nice lacing. Very fresh-tasting despite its age of a few months. Provided to me by my great friend jgb9348 while relaxing on the Eastern shore of Virginia.
