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).

Bottle. Sweet hops in the nose, quite floral, with some pine sap and lychee. Quite sweet to start then really bitter to finish. Slightly spicy, citric finish aswell as lychee/pine/grapefruit. Lots of flavour. Palate is quite heavy.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2005 Bottle at Chris’, thanks to joet. Wonderful piney hops in the aroma. Taste is very hoppy with a little malt. Nice AIPA that’s all about the hops.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2005
Bottled at The London/Joet Gathering Chez Chris_O. A copper coloured beer with a soapy white head. The aroma is pleasantly hoppy like the Stone. The taste has hops and some strawberry notes. Drinkable but you can only have so many American hoppy beers in one sitting that you start getting ambivalent.

gsteph (321) - knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 21, 2005
Opaque dark amber with a good sized off-white frothy head. Fair retention with sticky lacing. Piney, citrus aroma with some sweet malt...nothing fancy, just simple. Citrusy, floral flavor palate, not overpowering, malty, bitter and sweet finish, alcohol comes in to play on the finish as well. Good palate of flavor, body is big and creamy. Solid IPA.

ross (2090) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - JAN 16, 2005
almost as good as their double ipa, this one resembles it in alot of ways. orange colored pour. sweet hoppy smell and pine scent. really smooth and easy drinking when it is very cold. alcohol creaps in a little unexpectedly from this beer. these people make great beers, and im glad to have tried another one of their line up

skaughty (645) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 7, 2005
Crisp and bubby. I let this one sit for a while during a poker game and the aroma and body and head were there waiting for me in spades (pun intended). The orange and pineapple just pop out in the aroma. The sweet ruby red grapefruit flavor is enticing and trhe finish is worthy.

PorterPounder (5593) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2005
Part of a Birthday Bouquet from Grapevine Liquours in Austin, Tx. 22 oz bomber pours a dark orange with an extremely frothy white head and thick lacing. Aroma is fresh and floral with a touch of nuttiness. Flavor has the requisite citrusy bitterness as expected, but is balanced nicely with some malty nutty and chocolate notes. Mouthfeel is somewhat creamy, not tongue numbing as some strong IPAs tend to be, Overall, above average.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2005
Cloudy orange/amber color with a thick white head that was very sticky. Strong piney hop aroma. Pretty much, every hop flavor imaginable is in this beer. Good bit of malty sweetness balancing all those hop flavors, also.

OldGrowth (2702) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - DEC 28, 2004
Bottle, trade with JCW. Good nose, though kinda typical west coast, Citrus, grapefruit and orange, pine, little toffee, little earthy. Hazy brownish orange color. Small head that fadd quickly. Bitter flavors, grapefruit mainly, burnt, some metallic,pine, but really grapefruit rind bitterness. Medium to full body, creamy mouthfeel, burnt bitter finish. Nice brew, though like i said this is starting to seem like a broken record. Thanks JCW
