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).

fonefan (33333) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2007
Bottle. Unclear orange color with a average frothy fair lacing mostly diminishing off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, sweet, moderate to heavy hoppy, grapefruit, citrus, pine. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. Very nice ;o))

From tap at Ølbaren. Pours clear and orange with a light tan and creamy head. Dry and wet woody hops aroma. Lemonish initial flavour with a delicate hops base. Mild caramel malty flavour beneath. Mild woody and toward breadish dry malty. Light lemonish hoppy finish with a delicate bitterness into an almost fragile finish.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Beautiful, dark amber. Filtered and clear with a small, fine and very creamy head. Fruity, hoppy nose. Fat, almost sticky, body with loads of malt. but being an IPA this of course is a hop-show with the hops completely taking over the scene. A crossfire of hops - both the aromatic and the bitter ones. But it ends intensely bitter - albeit not exactly suffocating as the same brewery’s "Old Ruffian". 290505

omhper (18969) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2005
Bottled. Cloudy amber, rich head. Grapefruity hop aroma. Dry and very hoppy. Straightforward and one dimensional, nothing but hop aroma, hop flavour and hop bitterness. The malt just acts like a foundation that is there, but shouldn’t be noticed. After many thousands of different beers simple ones like this should be slagged of by me, but I succumb and offer my soul to the god of hops. No matter how I try I can’t stop myself from loving it.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber colour with a small off-white head. Hoppy aroma with hints of pine needles. Sweet malty hoppy flavor with hints of pine needles. Sweet malty and hoppy bitter finish.
