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).

cvillebeer (134) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 1, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2005 This beer, although not as impressive as their Double IPA is a solid example of an American IPA with the common citric/herbal hop character. There is a touch of sweetness and a nice balance. Nothing here that surprises, but just a well made IPA. It goes for around $10 a six pack here, so not really a good value for what it is, but well crafted nontheless.

04.26.05 12oz bottle thanks to maibockaddict. Looks like an IPA on the pour, hazy amber with medium tan head and instant lacing. Aroma is big and piney, hints of citrus, maybe a bit sweet. Iím reminded of DFH 60min, although I havenít had that stuff in a long time -- maybe itís just the green label throwing me off. Lawn clippings. Flavor is mostly piney with caramel, chocolate touches, lots of grapefruit pith. Hops are certainly the fat kid on this teter-toter. Nice stuff, thanks Dave!

chriso (7482) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2005
A classic US style IPA with bags of pine resin hop presence throughout. Pleasantly sharp grapefruit accented finish. Although its not exactly subtle, I didnít find it by any means overpowering. I like it. Bottled at the London Joet gathering, January 2005.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - APR 24, 2005
From the bottle this pours a nice clear amber with a tall fluffy white head. Lots of citrus pine hops in the nose. Taste has just a quick snap of sweetness up front which quickly meets its match against the big ol hoppy finish. Very crisp citrus hop finish.

mybrainhurts (370) - North Dakota, USA - APR 15, 2005
Pours into my glass dark orange, with a short tight head. Aroma is pine, grapefruit, with a solid caramel malt sweetness. Mouthfeel is full and rich. Pine hop bitterness, grapefruit, mixed with a moderate malt sweetness. Nicely balanced IPA.

Ratman197 (10720) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2005
Pours a lovely reddish amber color with a small offwhite head. Pungent piney aroma entices one to take a sip.The aroma carries through to the flavor with a touch of citrus and a malty backbone.Makes an excellent session beer!

desurfer (1245) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2005
Clear amber body, tan head, nice lacing. Aroma of mild citrus, fruit, a tad on the sweet side. Flavor is chock full of biting hops, piney, pungent, but smooth and sticky sweet. Palate is a bit thin but coating and long lasting. Very good.

BeerAteHer (384) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - APR 11, 2005
UPDATED: APR 12, 2005 Thick head interspersed with large and small bubbles thoroughly integrated. Nice amber color and typical IPA lack of bubbles on the appearance. Aroma of an IPA/standard pale ale tends to have little variation between brands, and that rule holds here: highly floral-hopped, mainly of the Cascade variety. But the flavor of Titan stands out more like a standard IPA of extraordinary quality which is mellowed by a high-quality malt finish -- perhaps to a more satisfactory degree than Iíve ever come across in a beer slated as IPA. Though I dock it 2 Overall points for being somewhat out of category, this beer is great. Not to mention the fact that the alcohol is so very well hidden.

22 oz bottle. Very nice IPA with a full head and lacing along the glass. Plenty of Cascade aroma and flavor hops balance nicely with full maltiness. Overall, this is a very, very nice IPA.
