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).

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pours a crystal clear copper with a one finger bubbly off white head. Smells of tangerines, grapefruit, orange, light pine and caramel. Tastes of grapefruit up front, followed by pine, tropical fruit and caramel. Finishes with a nice moderate bitterness and medium dryness. Body is perfectly in the middle for an IPA. Very good, I will be drinking again.

MSBrindbergs (409) - Solna, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2014
Fat på Oliver Twist. Klar rödbrun vätska. Doftar kraftigt av karamellmalt, svagt av humle. Söt maltig smak men med humlesting. Inte min favorittyp av IPA, men inget att klaga på egentligen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gripweed57 (755) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - NOV 7, 2014
12 ounce bottle. Copper color with a small creamy beige head. Nice lacing. Fragrant tropical fruit malt nose. A note of pine hops as well. Sweet caramel malt backbone is balanced by complex citrus hops. Wonderfully spicy with a pleasant fruity character. A nice balance of malt and hops. Quite flavorful, with notes of brown sugar and vanilla.

CopterScott (149) - Kansas, USA - NOV 4, 2014
clear light amber color with a thin off-white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is malt with only a hint of hops. Flavor is more hoppy with a distinct grapefruit up front and then more pine, fruit and caramel.

No real aroma, too caramelly for my tastes, good color, definitely drinkable, but not going to be a frequent buy for me.

Hopmaestro (162) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2014
The aroma is pineapple, citrus and a lurking bad-ass attitude underneath. The taste isn’t as striking at first, but after a few seconds when the rather sweet and almost oppressive malt base joins in, the flavors mix up in perfect balance, and gives you a performance similiar to a pair of figure skaters doing a near perfect number in your mouth.

Pours hazy copper with white head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt and citrus. Sweet up front with lots of citrus and a little piney bitterness. Medium body of sweet caramel malt. Finishes pretty clean and pretty easy to drink. Not bad.

RRistow12 (269) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - OCT 15, 2014
Tasted from bottle. Pours a clear orange amber with white head. Good lacing. Pine and floral hop aroma. Taste is a pretty well balanced IPA. Moderate sweet malt backbone with caramel and toffee flavors. Some pine and citrus hop flavors. Just a tad too much malt sweetness than I would like but still quite tasty. Definitely an above average IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml bottle served in a pint mug. Purchased at "Il Regno di Gambrinus" in Villorba. Thanks Paolo for your great beer selection! A: Pours a clear orange color with a medium white to yellow aired head. Medium retention and many nice lacings left. Some particles cab be seen floating around S: Throws off a delicious and refreshing bouquet of flowery and grassy hops. That’s what we can call best in business. Caramel, caramel malts T: Follows the nose. Slightly sweet caramel upfront, followed by caramel malts and a bitter hoppy end. Hops are a must, as expected: grassy, piny and a bit earthy. A bit metallic sensation too M: Medium molasses body. Good carbonation. No alcohol can be felt despite the 7.1% ABV. Delicious bitter aftertaste O: Absolutely drinkable beer. Absolutely well done. Goes to my top 10 American IPA list :) [ BA Review @ 4/21/2012 ]
