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).

superspak (4227) - Michigan, USA - DEC 4, 2015
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 9/24/2015. Pours fairly crystal clear orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of tangerine, apricot, pineapple, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, light caramel, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big tangerine, apricot, pineapple, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, light caramel, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Large amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, apricot, pineapple, lemon/orange rind, pine, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and no astringent hop flavors after the finish. Light-moderate building dryness from bitterness as well. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, sticky/resinous, and fairly creamy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice IPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

weihenweizen (2835) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - NOV 30, 2015
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a glass. Clear light orange with very small white head. Aroma is herbal hops, medium body, low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is herbal hops, pine hops, and slightly bitter finish.

OrthoDoc (112) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 29, 2015
Very fresh 1 month old. Not much nose aroma. Taste mainly malt with some hoppiness and medium bitterness. Not my style of ipa. Would get on draft if available but not buy again in bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Samuel214 (314) - SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2015
Flaska på Örebro Öl & Whisky Festival. Ljusorange med vitt skum. Doft av kåda, granskott och grön humle. En del citrus i bakgrunden. Trevlig och jämn beska i smaken utan att det drar iväg eller blir för mycket granskog av det. Går nog att dricka några stycken av.

Franzen (465) - SWEDEN - NOV 28, 2015
Canned in 27/7 adn drunk on 28/11, so a bit too old when drunk. Grape hoppy aroma. Bitter taste but with nice malt backing. Good carbonation and dryness. A nice IPA with good drinkability.

PhatB420 (817) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 15, 2015
12oz into glass. Pours a deep orange shaded with Amber, solid sediment floating. Thin white bubbly head, small, adequate lacing. Aroma of pine, citrus, resin, melon, hoppy grassy flare. Taste of orange peel, malty waves, oily finish pronounces the smooth hop overtone. Bitter finish, followed by orange, hops, and booze. Brings me back each Sip. Nice

Alengrin (4076) - BELGIUM - NOV 13, 2015
Classic IPA from Colorado, with moussy, fairly thick, pale greyish white, equally lacing head and lightly hazy, deep warm orange blonde colour. Very attractive and rich aroma of lime zest, dried grapefruit peel, roasted onion, papaja, watermelon, fresh wormwood or other bitter herbs, toasted bread, lychee, strawberry, lemon grass, pine resin, rosé wine, freshly baked cake, garlic powder. Crisp and fruity, yet clean onset, sweet with subtle sourish and umami accents but not the saltiness I expected, papaja, lychee and other tropical fruits, soft carbo, very supple and smooth body, minerally touch, biscuity and a bit bready but in a ’clean’ way, evolving into increasing hop bitterness, drying the back of the mouth with a lovely, ’natural feeling’ bitterness of tonic water and wormwood, as well as being very aromatic, citrusy as expected but not overly so, the roasted onion again (always reminds me of Simcoe but not sure if this has been used here) and pine needle; a narrow trace of juicy malts peep through but it is a herbal, ’green’ hop bitterness which sticks after swallowing. Lives up to its reputation: this is indeed a perfectly balanced IPA, with a fresh and complex bouquet I could sniff for hours. Classy, hiding its ABV perfectly and delivering in both aroma and flavour, a great example of its style.

sawbuck (588) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - OCT 31, 2015
Nice piney aroma, citrus and pineapple also. Deep yellow color, full off-white head, holds nicely. Rich malt up front. Sweet. Deep caramel. Piney bitterness next. Intensifies down the hatch. Resin lingers long on the finish. Full rich malt mouthful. Balance on the finish as the sweet caramel echoes back. Nice IPA for hop lovers.

martin00sr (2131) - Haderslev, DENMARK - OCT 29, 2015
Clear amber, white sudsy head. Malt, dark grapefruit and roasted almond aroma. Caramely flavour with sweet grapefruit. A lot of caramel for the style but it balances the bitterness really well. Long, piney finish, rather smooth and very drinkable.
