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).
2003-2009 vintages 6.8% abv

Bottle at home from notes. Pours a clear orange tinted golden color with a medium sized frothy white head. The aroma and flavor has orange and grapefruit citrus, pine and floral hops, toasted bread, caramel, grass, and honey. Medium bodied, with a decent resiny bitter finish. Solid enough available IPA.

Garrold (1254) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle from Bottledog, Kings Cross. Clear, amber colour. Minimal, white head. Ripe mandarin. Orange. Toffee. Grapefruit pith. Taste is sweet at first. Then fairly restrained bitterness. Sweet, chewy palate. Low carbonation lends itself well to the general fusty, hoppiness. Lingering, but fairly light, bitter finish. Very nice.

Ipa molto interessante, con una luppolatura potente e un amaro lungo e duraturo. Note agrumate, fruttate e buona interazione con i malti, che risaltano con una leggera sfumatura terrosa senza coprire un accenno quasi citrico. Davvero buona!

Bottle. Quite a right on IPA, it didnít really stand out too much for me, but that is quite hard now with the amount of IPAís. Nice resin and earthy aroma, and had a good amount of pine, more than citrus. A good backing of malt too. All and all a good IPA, would definitely try again.

AdiBeer (1034) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2014
Aroma: intense fruity hops, some resin. Appearance: dark clear gold, medium frothy white head. Taste: medium sweet. Palate: soft sweets intensify, caramel malts, light dryness in the background, getting quite bitter towards the long finish. Overall: fantastic IPA, excellent palate and aroma. Bottle from BottleDog Kings Cross, Holborn.

flying_pig (936) - SCOTLAND - MAY 19, 2014
355ml Bottle from the Brewdog Online Shop (£3.50):
More malty than I was expecting with some sweetness & touches of caramel but these are balanced against some pleasantly bitter hops, namely citrus and floral ones. Some background fruits including some orange and some biscuit feature as well.
Copper tinged amber with a 1.5cm, foamy white head that reduces to about half that then holds. Itís very clear with some bubbles rising as well.
Sweet malts, bread & caramel but with the hops from the nose taking more of a front seat. Itís quite hop-filled with citrus & floral flavors & some grapefruit. Some pine, toasted malts & further fruits such as orange and mango round things off.
Smooth & bitter with a nice sweetness from the caramel & a wonderful balance from the start. There was moderate carbonation & the alcohol was well hidden throughout, working well with the medium body & citrus tang towards the end.

I was expecting a lot from this one and thankfully it didnít disappoint at all, going down exceptionally well with a great taste and balance throughout. Titan IPA was another fantastic beer from Great Divide and one that I would rate above their Hercules Double IPA, mainly down to the fact that it was so much easier to drink thanks to the lower abv.

Pours dark copper with a white head. Tastes like a farmhouse ale. This does not taste like an IPA...to me, itís Sunday like a dunkel.
