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).

Best IPA I have ever had. Strong strong fruity hop flavor with just enough malt balancing to not overpower the hops. Great hop aroma with tight lacy pale head. Great beer.

I have had this beer on tap and in the bottle and, it is always AMAZING. One of my favorite IPA’s. I love the bold hop flavor and it’s not too citrusy. The malty sweetness at the end really finishes this beer well. Very well balanced.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2004 Visited the brewery in Denver and had a great time with Bernie, one of the brewers. Nothing like a great friendly brewery! Reddish-orange with a a massive foamy head. Nice orange blossom aroma. Stark hop/grapefruit flavors. Beautiful hoppy beer.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2006 What a kick ass IPA this turned out to be. Totally unexpected..after having some of the so called "better" IPA’s out there. Very well balanced. Color was Deep, dark gold, you cant see through the other side of glass. Aroma is sweet chocolates, malts and strong hops. Flavor is malts, perfect amount of hops, but has a chocolately/caramel sweetness that tops it off amazingly. Silky smooth texture, that finishes not long..but not short..somewhere in between..like I said, balanced. This beer should not be underestimated. THANK YOU GREAT DIVIDE!

Wonderful piney hop aroma. Dark copper color, a bit darker than most IPA’s. The citrus hop flavorwelcomes the taste buds initially and an even sweetness hits the back of the mouth leaving a great after taste. Very surprised it only rates a 65 on the IBU scale. Definitely a top of the line agreeively hopped IPA.

hazy copper, lots of particulates, thin beige head, creamy sticky full body, medium carbonation.

aroma: tons of sweet bready pale malts, juicy leafy citrusy hops.

taste: crisp minerally hop bitterness, sweet hop resin, some caramel malt trying to push through, and a balanced and dryish finish.

very flavorful, and not overly complex. great balance and body.
