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).

Whaleman 2004: Poured orange with a medium offahite head. Citrusy and piney aroma. Piney and grapefruit in the taste. Lightly sweet up front followed by a nice bitter dry finish. Nice mouthfeel. Very good.

(2003 bomber) Small beige head atop a clear amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit, pine, some floral, caramel. Taste is mellower than I expected -- medium sweet, grapefruit at first but then much stronger pine, some caramel that lends some welcome balance. Medium body, trying but not quite achieving chewiness.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - MAR 25, 2004
Orange with a clumpy off-white head. Nose quite hoppy, piney and citric, continues that way in the flavor. Good body, full and creamy, but the malts fade a bit in the end, has the hoppy kick and sweetness in the malts but is missing something a bit deeper from the malts to help in the finish.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - MAR 21, 2004
Slightly hazed brilliant orange body with a very nice creamy off-white head. The glass lacing is outstanding. Very nice piney hops dominate at first then even more hops in the form of citrus finally a bit of caramel malt. The flavor is awesome! Big resinous hops and some sweet malt. Bitterness is perfect. The body is medium and slightly creamy. This is one of the best IPAs I have had. Really good stuff.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - MAR 14, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2004 22 oz. brown bomber bottle. No freshness date seen, but Version 1.0 seen on lower right front label. Satisfying pffttt when opened. Poured out a bright, clear orangish color, with a thick, off-white foamy head. Dense and rocky head that slowly slid back to a thick, sticky lacing down the sides of the glass. Aromas right off the bat are of hops. Piney, resinous, sticky smelling hops. No grapefruit aromas here. Fresh mown Timothy hay aromas as well as fresh malty aromas abound in this beer. Bright, fresh hop notes. Tastes like either Magnum or Simcoe hops. Very aromatic smelling and tasting. Thick, chewy mouthfeel is rather unusual for an IPA. Strong malty backbone supports the hops very well. Almost a meal in a glass. Finishes bitter as hell, but it still maintains it's balance between the hops and malts. A first class American IPA. Seek it out at all costs. This beer is the schnizzit.

haddon90 (1385) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2004
Pours an amber color with a slight orange tint to it. Frothy white head. Floral hops and some citrus in the aroma. Nice smooth flavor. A hint of lemon in the flavor. Caramel, hops, and some malt round out the flavor. Was amazed this had such few ratings. An above averaged IPA. Bought this 22oz bottle at The Party Source in Bellevue, KY.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 28, 2004
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy, dark amber color with a huge off-white head that settled slowly and left tremendous lacing. Wow aroma -lemon and grapefruit hops dominate, with a rich maltiness in the background. Flavor is equal parts rich, sweet caramel maltiness and in your face hops, nicely balanced and leaves an astringent-bitter finish that's quite pleasing. Medium body and smooth, full carbonation. A hop-lovers treat and a nice brew overall. Thanks to Aubrey who sent this one my way.

5000 (6031) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - FEB 25, 2004
Bottle pours a hazy orangish yellow with a large dishwater head.   Pancake dough like lacing, minor carbonation.   Aroma is of sweet caramel, hops, pine, and flowers.   Smells very inviting!   Sharp hop taste at the front, slowly backing off giving way to an overbearing metallic & acidic finish.   A bit malty towards the end too.   This one lacks any real hoppy or bitter aftertaste, although it has a lingering ash flavor.   Decent, but not in the same league as Bell's, Stone, or LaConner.   Thanks goes out to ClarkVV for the trade!

Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JAN 30, 2004
Great looking brew, thick creamy, long -lasting head over a cloudy amber body. Being that IPA is not my favorite style, I found this to be a good beer and should really appeal to IPA lovers.

brewbandit (312) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 21, 2004
Big hop nose abounds from the white lacey head atop a golden, copperish body. Sweet malt flows over the palate followed by solid bitterness with a touch a maltiness to the finish. A good keeper. Well, for as long as you feel like it!
