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).

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.

This is a fine beer. The price is a little steep, but what the heck. Piney when ya sniff it, citrusy when ya sip it. Good stuff. Go out and getcha some.

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.

Kasteelfreak (341) - Fallbrook, California, USA - OCT 9, 2004
Deep orange, copper color. Aroma is very malty with caramel, and some other musty malt smell that I can’t put my finger on. Head is rich and retains nicely. Body is creamy yet a little thin at the same time. This is a malty style IPA, and reminds me of Hop Devil when I first had it. Very smooth carmely, fig like flavor. Kind of like a light Hog Heaven, or other light Barley wine/Double IPA hybrid. I really love this style of IPA. It’s onthe malt side of the scale rather than crisp. Really nice.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2004
Bottle: Smelled of hops, nuts, and a bit of citrus. Quite a bitter scent. Poured a nice brown color, with a big, creamy, lasting, white head. Lacing was medium. Bitter to begin, with a slightly sweet finish (I prefer dryer). Tastes of hops, malt, some nuts. Flavor is very similar to HopDevil. Easy drink. Overall, an impressive IPA, though not top notch. I can’t wait to try the double. In the meantime, I’d be happy to have another.

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.
