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).

Pours a pale gold with a thin white head and some lace. Aroma is pleasantly bitter, sharp hop aroma (no individually discernible hop character). Tastes likewise - solid malting, good bitterness verging on astringent, slightly dry finish. Thin crisp body, good carbonation. Satisfying.

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.

drjoeng (738) - SINGAPORE - JUL 20, 2016
7.1%ABV. IPA. Poured out Amber. 14įSRM. 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 (168) - 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 thatís 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.

commonmac (1009) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 16, 2016
Can poured into pint glass with blonderedhead. This one is pretty clear with hues of gold and orange. Half finger initially of white head that is quick to dissipate. Aroma isnít overwhelming but has standard pine, a light citrus quality, and a hint of caramel. Taste has a soft mouthfeel at the onset with the malty and caramel backbone taking center stage. It gives way to a hoppy finish with a decent bitterness. There are characteristics of orange and pine resin present as well. I would put this more towards the malty end of the IPA spectrum and thatís a trait that appeals directly to me. Add this to the stable of IPAs worthy of keeping stocked for go-to consumption.

ZodiacM (759) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2016
Bottledate 13-1-16. Poured from the bottle. Clear almost amber beer. Aroma of hop, malt and mango. Taste of malt, hop, mango snd orange. No strong taste, smooth. I wonder (well, know) that this IPA is better tasting when drank nearer the bottle-date, which us now 6 months.

minihame2 (438) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUL 1, 2016
Clear, dark brown colour and some tan lacing. Aroma is malty, fruity, has orange, sweetness and some caramel. Taste is a bit mild, ends in a hoppy finish. Smooth mouthfeel, weak body, low carbonation. Itís a solid IPA but not that great.
