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).

qdog (201) - Cleveland, Mississippi, USA - OCT 6, 2004
bottle, tall creamy head with a lot of lacing, orange/amber color...slightly opaque, aroma of hops and citrus, good balance of malt and hops...you wait for a bitter aftertaste but it doesn’t come and stays smooth. will definitely drink again.

Bottle. Big white head, lasts quite a while. Nice lacing. Color is a hazy orange. Aroma is piney, citric and sweet all rolled together. Taste is malty for an instant and then the hop bitterness and flavors ride in. Nothing lingering or cloying. Well done and will drink more.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - OCT 5, 2004
Draft @ brewery. My kind of IPA. Bright orange color with a sticky head that left lacing almost all the way through. Nice pine and hops aroma. The taste is lightly sweet, balanced with malty goodness and sweet grapefruit.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 4, 2004
22 oz bottle: sticky crystalline lace covers the inside of the glass above a thin & creamy taupe film…sweet pine, grapefruit rinds, sourdough, and dried apricots make up a very nice aroma. Smooth piney palate, with an even and not too strong bitterness that makes this one very drinkable. There is a candy-like sweetness that fills the mouth, but the underlying bitterness keeps the flavour balanced.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2004
Pours a gloomy dark peach. The head is a deep and dense. Its white color laces the glass intricately and the retention is marvelous. Exceptional nose. Pine needles, oranges and citrus notes all over the nose. Smells juicy and very inviting. This tastes good but not that good. Quite citrusy with some orange, pine and light fruit flavors as well.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 2, 2004
Had this while I was brewing my very first homebrew...and IPA of course. Pours a beautiful copper color with your basic IPA head. Taste of piney hops, nice malt and some oranges in there too. Nice a smooth...and I love the 65 IBUs! Very soild IPA...I only hope mine will measure up.

Syd (920) - Waconia, Minnesota, USA - SEP 30, 2004
Bottle pours a deep copper color with a decent head and persistent lace structures. The aroma is piney, sweet, and very inviting. The flavor is citrus hops, but with a well supported malt base that lingers sweetness. The palate is rich and very smooth. Another fine beer by Great Divide that I’m thankful distributes here.

rudolf (2340) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 19, 2004
Beautiful in the glass. Slightly cloudy orange with a billowing off white head. Aroma is sweet grassy hops, some malts, a little grapefruit. Flavor is Bitter and malty, grassy and lemonty. Great lingering finish.

Jeppe (2631) - Řlbutikken, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2004
Orange/yellow body, foamy light tan head. Aroma is dominated by hops with fruit and oranges also. Good bitter hoppy flavor with a tone of alcohol. Dry, flowery and nutty. A very nice IPA.

Nuffield (3657) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 18, 2004
Amber color with a nice cream colored head that unfortunately didn’t last. Decent enough aroma, citrus and biscuits, some malt sweetness but a lot of hops, of course. A lot of citrus in the flavor, something...metallic and grassy, but the grassiness is mellow...and something like the non-spicy cajun spices that I used to put onto the "cajun" fish at the Skippers (chain) fish restaurant I worked at when I was a high school student. Decent carbonation, but other than that the body itself is not especially rich, especially given the amount of malts that it would appear to have. About two-thirds of the way through the bomber I thought "this is actually quite drinkable" but then I realized that I was getting a bit tipsy, and as my mouth turned against the quality of the bitterness here and I developed a post-hop headache, I lost that glow and could only see a relatively standard IPA with some imbalanced elements beneath the initially pleasing aroma.
