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).

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2005 Well, I found these notes I apparently made on this beer. Sadly I donít remember trying this. Oh well, at least I made notes and will be able to compare with the older version I had. In this case (newer sample, 2005 I assume) the brew poured with huge and plentiful bubbles. Deep golden yellow with hints of orange. Citrus hops forward on the nose with some sweet caramel malt. Crisp citrus pineapple and pine hops ride thru the flavor all the time. Sweet caramel malt. Medium body, crisp but a bit lingering. Very nice, an excellent IPA (if only I could remember tasting this one).

Tried the Maverick IPA (2003) this weekend. Poured a light and clear copper color. Had a light metallic-crisp citrus aroma. Smooth lightly creamy body. Biscuit like malt with a touch of caramel. Very minimal hops (mostly citrus peal from what I could tell). Would have probably scored this in the low 3.something range. Interesting effect, age on pale ale...Iíd not recommend it.

Pours a copper color with a medium-sized white head. Balance is the secret to this beerís greatness. The aroma is a fine combination of pine, citrus, malt, and hops. Soft and round smoothness with nice sweet malt flavorings and gentle notes of citrus. All this builds to a subtle hit of hop bitterness in the finish thatís just right. This oneís perfect, anytime, anywhere.

Hazy golden brown color. Flowery hop aroma with subtle undertones of butterscotch and malts. Really nice balance here. No harsh bitterness, but enough to notice. Citrus, earth, slighlty sweet malts. A classic, well balanced, American IPA.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2009 Bottle, at the brewery? Great Divide is a small production brewery. They gave an excellent tour, but are only equipped with a few of their beers on draft. They were happy to open up bottles of anything that we wanted to try. I love the aroma of a good IPA and the Titan does not disappoint. Very refreshing, excellent flavor. This was the first taste of the tour, a great 10a.m. brewery tour tasting beer! It pours slightly hazy with an orange hue. Before you get anywhere near tasting it you meet the aroma of HOPS!, very piney aroma. Great initial hop flavor with enough malt to keep it drinkable. Overall an excellent IPA.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2005 Hazy dark amber color with a fluffy white head. Sweet fruity aroma with a touch of cotton candy. Flavor is rich and fruity (apricot, pineapple) with a nice citrus bitterness. Balanced with a light dry finish.

Beautiful golden color. Aroma of chocolate and chemicals. Very good perfumy hop flavor, maybe too much bitter.

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 17, 2005
22 oz bottle. Pours with large frothy off-white head that lasts. Excellent lacing. Lightly cloudy and amber orange in color. Aroma is light malt, heavy hops with flowers, perfume, pine, and citrus in the mix. Medium bodied and sticky in texture with average carbonation and a nice bitter finish. Flavor is long in duration. Lightly sweet, moderately acidic, heavily bitter. Good beer. Nice lingering hoppiness that stays and stays. May not be my favorite, but itís damn good.

Sampled at Broudyís Beerfest, 25 June 2005 Jacksonville, FL. Thick copper colored beer. Piney, hoppy, and bitter. Not my style at all. I couldnít drink even half a bottle of this. Nothing more than hophead juice.

KarmanGhia (276) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 10, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2005 This IPA pours a really thick and nice amber/copper with a fine-bubbled and very large, offwhite head. The hops are very noticeable and upfront, and they are laced with a piney bite and a citrus tinge. The alcohol is annoyingly noticeable. The middle consists of a tart maltiness - the sweetness is never very high in this beer. The end is that dirty, musky, somewhat metallic taste that is so characteristic of Denver brews. This brew warms badly.
