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).

This is one of the better IPAs. The strong hop aroma is delightful, and the deep golden color looks good with the nice head. Like all IPAs, the hops overbalance the malt taste, but the malt tastes come through strongly anyway, and it is delicious. The body of this ale is pretty full. Very enjoyable.

This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a ruddy burnt orange almost burnt brown color with a thin white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Foamy messiness weaves around the glass. The aroma bleeds a sticky resin sweetness, sly bitterness smooths in decently. The flavor takes the ebb and flow of the sweet hops to malts to be bitter in both accounts. Lingering resin backing aftertaste leading into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Carbonation rides at a nice pace. Overall, good AIPA that I could have again.

BeardedAvenger (147) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2016
Tap at Brewdog Shepherd’s Bush. 27/08/16. Refreshing hoppy aroma. Dark amber. Creamy frothy head, with legs to it. A restrained hoppyness. An initial hop impact, that turns to caramel. The alcohol is always there. Medium bodied with dry finish. Interesting.

Unde (859) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Clear orange beer with nice head which leaves pretty lacing behind. Aroma has sweet fruits, grapefruit and pines. Caramel malts dominate. Taste is quite sweet with caramel malts, then hits the pines and grapefruit hop bitterness. Medium body and medium carbonation.

3.5/5 appearance, nice light brown color with foamy head and lacing. Smell is floral, fragrant.. perfectly balanced hop/malt aroma. Goes down super smooth for 7.1% IPA.. just a hint of hop bitter. Taste some piney hops and some smokey malts.. nothing extraordinary there, but a great beer overall.

McGarnigle (613) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 1, 2016
From a variety 12-pack, this is the star. Plenty of hop bitterness for a standard IPA; you really sense it at the end. Before that, there is a balance of sweet malt and warm hop flavors - American citrus. Nearly DIPA flavors in an IPA, but you won’t like it if you can’t take the bitterness at the end.

Lighter/medium color. Lingering finish which I like, just might make it a better beer to eat with a nice meal versus drinking by itself.

7.1%ABV. IPA. Poured out Amber. 14°SRM. Nose is sweet, beery and malty. Overripe fruit. Early fermenting grain. Light berry aroma. Mouthfeel is soapy. Palate has deeply toasted malt. Hops are middling in flavor and intensity. Ok.

Heidbummer (196) - SCOTLAND - JUL 20, 2016
Keg BD Shepherds Bush . Pours light tan/giold with full creamy head. Aroma of bread, hint of chocolate strangely, warm wood. Smells comfy if that’s not too weird. Taste is full and very complex: beautiful balance of bitterness, sweetness, dry finish, slightly tart. All sorts of shit going on, fruit, white chocolate, herbs, malt and loads of hops. Lovely. A great big hug of a beer.
