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).

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - AUG 17, 2012
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.

Underdogs88 (305) - New Jersey, USA - APR 29, 2016
Piney, earthy hop character with caramel malt aroma. Copper appearance with a white head with average retention. Flavor has pine, woody, grassy character. Bitterness is high with a harsh character. Malt flavor has notes of bread, biscuit and a good amount of caramel. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation with a slight hop astringency. This definitely is an old school IPA. I don't care for the grassy and harsh hop character. Missing the bouquet of newer age hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

weordie (648) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2016
Pours copper with a thin white head. Aroma is caramel & malt. A very malty ipa, like a stone beer. Bitter finish. I really like it.

jc1762 (530) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 26, 2016
Poured from a can into a shaker showing well filtered amber brown with half a finger of sparse white foam. The nose shows a lot of biscuity malts. The palate is full bodied and well carbonated. Flavors of pine, lime and lemon balanced out with a very strong malt background. Big sharp IPA finish on the end accompanied with more flavors of pine. Pretty good.

teamsale (38) - Washington, USA - APR 22, 2016
Poured from a bottle into a pilsner glass. Poured a thick head. Smells of tropical fruit and pine. Really smells and looks good. Unfortunately, I’m not nearly as impressed by the flavor. Very average taste, a bit too sweet and alcohol dominant. This one is decent but I’m a little disappointed in the bitterness on the finish.

Clear golden orange, ample tan head. Citrus, pine resin. Hay. Quite bitter, light sweetness in the body. Oily, medium body. Long finish. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Emeister84 (1891) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 9, 2016
12oz bottle from Whole Foods Market (Charlottesville, VA). Piney and tropical aromas, subtle bubblegum. Clear red-orange with a mostly lasting white head. Dry, piney, slightly minty, somewhat metallic. Medium bodied.

BeerRenter76 (647) - Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Originally rated on 7/17/08. It poured a hazy copper colored body, lots of carbonation, with a mid sized off white cap. Floral aroma almost peachy, some hints of pine. Flavor is a little sweet and piney, slightly bitter, but not bad. A pretty good IPA, however at 10 bucks a sixer its pricey.

Bottle. Pours a hazy orange color. Aroma and taste are largely pine with some citrus.

Subdued and not overly impressive on first taste but settled in decently by the end of the glass with nice piney and resin flavors ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Guruhso (215) - Grindsted, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2016
Bottle. Very hoppy aroma of citrus and pine with herbal notes. The flavour is heavy bitter with lingering bitterness. The body is medium and the texture is watery. Soft carbonation.
