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).

KajII (782) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - MAY 14, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a cloudy medium burnt orange with an average sized (1-2 finger) white rocky head that had good retention, reducing to a medium cap and having some good streaky lacing. The aroma was of a caramel malt, pine and floral hops and a mild moldy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (orange peel). The taste was a nice bitter hoppy with a touch of citrus throughout, and had a light malty sweetness and a hint of caramel towards the end. The flavor lasted an average amount of time after the swallow with a hoppy slightly sweet malty taste settling nicely on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was a bit beyond light in body and dry in texture with a lively carbonation. Overall a nice refreshing twist on an IPA, the slight malty sweet finish was surprisingly enjoyable...

Smells fresh. Not citrusy like I expected. Malty sweetness possibly around 8% crystal malt. Lingering bitterness without being over powering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

seymour (1435) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Poured 12oz bottle into Spieglau IPA glass. Gorgeous deep amber colour with thick beige foam, long-lasting with lace. Exactly my kinda IPA, with a grainbill as complex as the hops. I love when brewers are unafraid to build bready, caramelly, fruity, toffee and honey aspects into the strong malt backbone before layering on the hefty hops. Intense citrus, black currant, dried apricots, ganja-weed, pine resin, wildflowers. SUCH a delicious bitter-sweet balance. Medium body and carbonation, well-rounded mouthfeel, multi-layered aftertaste. Great alcoholic strength too. Smooth but strong, you know you’ve had a few but you’re not sloppy drunk or put to sleep. Truly well-crafted beer here.

8/6/14. Bottle. Just a really solid IPA. Nice nose and solid mouth. Well rounded. Not as up front as far west coast offerings, but that is OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fiercepanda (544) - Missouri, USA - AUG 1, 2014
A hazy copper beer with a small off-white head. The aroma is sweet grain and light pine and melon. The flavor is balanced, a little earthy, a little fruity, and a strong dose of bitterness.

AlmostBeerHero (13) - Colorado, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle. Light copper with a lasting head. Big piney dankness and a kiss of citrus on the nose. Medium mouthfeel. Starts hoppy with a rich malty sweetness carrying you back to a hoppy kick. Lots of resinous and citrus notes. Crisp. Quite enjoyable.

sudomorph (600) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 25, 2014
12oz bottle bottled Feb 19, 2014. Pours a near clear copper with a one finger, off white head that laces well. Aroma is probably a bit faded. Slightly bready with a touch of caramel, citrus, resin, tropical fruits, and pine. Taste is bitter but balanced. Notes of resin, pine, tropical fruit, and a short, slightly alcohol finish. Medium-full body with with a medium carbonation. Slight syrup/resin texture in the mouth. Smooth and easy to drink. Overall really nice. I wish the bottle was fresher but still solid flavours in an easy drinking package.
