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).

jmohno (1135) - Iowa, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Pours a hazed dark orange. One finger head, good lace sugary decending bubbles. Aroma is strong herbal pine and sweet apple fruit, along with some bready toasty nutty malt in the back. Whatever hop or possibly malt this is Im not into it, its either stale or just weird. Taste is smooth malty,sharp pine hop, strong astringent cloying bitter. I love ipas but haven’t had one in a week, unless my lupilin threashhold tolerance is low I think this is freekin bitter with a bad aftertaste. I love the hoppyest of the hoppy but this just has a bad messed up malt hop bitter finish. Blech, not liking this one. Taste assy. Maybe an overpowering herbal I don’t like. Although the hops are strong and bitter, im just not going for the taste of them, its not very often I disagree with hops but its just not good.

Malt-forward IPA with sweet deep apricot malt profile. Overall, a very nice IPA for those who like malt rather than hop as the profile.

ABS (552) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle from Ölrepublikken. Light amber. Small amount of white head. Quite bitter. Thick mouth feel. Below average carbonation. Very fruity. Grapefruit, clementine, honey, malt flavour. Good. A bit too bitter abd too malt heavy to be superb in my opinion.

ARH (558) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2014
On tap, poured into a sample glass. The aroma is primarily caramel and bread crust with a juicy grapefruit secondary note. It pours a crystal clear caramel color with a soft, white head that reduces down to a medium dense ring with a wispy surface coverage. There’s a low amount of dense micro bubble head. The taste is a well balanced medium bitter and sweet. The oily texture has a light-medium light body and a moderate amount of soft, fuzzy head. The flavor is toasted bread and fleshy plums with accompanying orange and pine at the finish. It’s crisp and clean with a slightly astringent, but light aftertaste.
