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).

chickenflea (350) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2010
Bottle. Have wanted to try this for a long time. Love the brewery. Now the beer. A beautiful rocky head that clings to the glass in chunks. Golden orange and clear body. Surprisingly some bready, nutty notes immediately apparent with the citrus and apricot aroma. Pleasant. Taste is very balanced and smooth. Malty sweetness with average bitterness. Hops are grassy and fresh-tasting. The texture is very soft almost pillowy. I was expecting a little rougher texture so I don’t know what to make of it except enjoyment. The beer goes down so easy. But the memory of it lingers long afterwards. Body is medium-to-full. Not an imperial, but close. Excellent brew. I was not disappointed.

Bottle. Clear, amber-red-orange appearance. White small-bubble head. Hoppy nose. Somewhat thick on the tongue (but not unpleasant at all). Rich, malty, and hoppy. Thumbs up.

GuideDogSaint (652) - Xiamen, CHINA - MAR 25, 2015
355ml bottle at Beer Station, Xiamen. Pours hazy golden orange with a thin white head. Pine and tropical fruit aroma, slightly medicinal. Sweetish finish. Sure I remember this being a little better.

emartell (269) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - MAR 20, 2015
Aromas herbales, principalmente a pino, y ligeramente cítricos. Color cobrizo brillante, cuerpo y carbonatacion medi. Corona de espuma abundante de baja retención. En boca es amarga, herbales y maltosa al final. Al paladar, desde el primer trago es lupulada. Posteriormente se percibe herbal y resinosa. El final es nuevamente con ligero amargor, posteriormente seca y el final ligeramente maltoso. En resumen es una IPA americana algo diferente. Lupulada y amarga, más herbal que cítrica, con un final maltoso que equilibra el amargor.

kjc51478 (439) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - MAR 20, 2015
12 oz bottle. Appearance is clear light amber color with medium, off-white head. Aroma is heavy on the citrus, pine with some floral. Taste is well balanced--aggressive bitterness from the citrus and pine tempered by a nice malty and nutty sweetness. Some hardness in the water gives it a very bright flavor. Palate is medium-bodied, smooth texture, and a dry finish. Very nice IPA.

bartzluke (39) - Oklahoma, USA - MAR 5, 2015
12 oz pour from bottle from fridge into a shaker pint. Good-but-small head, quickly fades. Nice light amber color. Clear with nice carbonation. Great hoppy nose. Piney, a little floral. Awesome hoppy taste. Bitter with some floral and piney taste. A bit sappy. The tiny bit of sweetness helps to bring out the bitterness.

loco_gallego (212) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 3, 2015
Orangée foncée, translucide. Petite mousse beige claire, mais assez persistante. Très belle. Au nez très résineuse et pin, avec un petit côté citrus. En bouche pareil avec une grosse présence du maltage caramel, bien balancée par le côté rafraichissant citrus. Amertume durable et agréable. IPA rafraichissante malgré pas mal de sucre résiduel pour une AIPA .

mikkopen (896) - Oulu, FINLAND - FEB 23, 2015
355 ml bottle. Hazy amber colour, thin off-white head. Caramel-malty aroma with citrus and resiny hops. The flavour is carmel-malty, with ripe citrus fruits and a piney hoppy finish. The hops in my bottle had probably lost their edge already - will definitely need to re-rate a fresh sample at some point.

Holmen1 (3127) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 11, 2015
Fra flaske på Cardinal M2 feb-15: dette er kvelden for de gode pale ales, og denne er nr. 11 i rekken. Mørk gylden med tett hvitt skum. Citrus, furunål mm., men mer karamell- og maltpreg enn en del av de foregående. Vel verdt å prøve en hel flaske av denne når anledningen byr seg.
