COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Special - JDW Spring Festival 2010.
Ingredients: Pale and Crystal malt; Ahtanum and Tomahawk hops.
This is a ’Red Indian pale ale’ - since Titanic set sail for the New World, not the Indian sub-continent. It celebrates the American-style IPA and so has a powerful, bitter hop flavour, with the use of dark crystal malt giving this pale beer a hint of red.

tombyars (1389) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 11, 2012
Tasted this strong bitter in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) in April 2010. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear orange amber in colour with a thin white head. Distinctive orange peel aroma, long in intensity. Pleasant resiny mouthfeel and good lacing throughout. Robust pale malt gives tart citric grapefruit and orange peel flavours. There is also heaps of sweet golden syrup in here as well. Dusty hop resins cuts through the malt to deliver a resiny woody aftertaste. The finish is dry and fruity with redolant notes of orange peel and tannins. A decent effort from Titanic and well recommended.

jackl (4671) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Cask. Reddish brown color with a modest head. Grassy hop nose, some orange peel, notes of chewy toffee. The taste is quite bitter and hop forward, an interesting beast. The finish somewhat acidic. Medium body, long finish.

Leighton (11339) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2010
Cask at Argyll Arms. Pours light amber with a soft white head. Grassy hop aroma. Wonderfully bitter flavor with earth and pine, preceded by an understated caramel malt presence. Medium in body with fine carbonation. Has a long grass and earth bitter finish. Very good.

markas101 (1850) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 27, 2010
Cask, The Francis Newton, Sheffield, UK. Hazy dark golden colour, faint but pleasant floral aroma. Very smooth, more spice than carbonation, citrus and and a deep flavour hit at the back of the throat on the finish.

madmitch76 (15309) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2010
7th April 2010. Clear amber beer. Light crisp palate. Fresh hops - slightly spicy and with bitter orange marmalade and a touch of lime citrus. Finishes dry and hoppy.

DJMonarch (9159) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2010
Cask Handpump at the Penny Black JDW, Northwich 19/04/2010 Hop aroma. Golden amber coloured very hoppy and citrus flavoured with a little creaminess in a very dry bitter malt finish.

sm89walt (1766) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 28, 2010
Cask - The Bell Hotel (JDW), Norwich. Poured a slightly hazy coppery amber with a lasting, frothy relatively fine white head. Charming sweet grapefruit and floral hop aromas. Malts are sweet on the tongue, hinting at caramel, some earthiness with the lovely fruity and lingering grassy, delicately piney hops coming over the top. Medium in body with light to medium carbonation. Sank my lunchtime half of this very easily.

bobinlondon (1256) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2010
Hand pulled cask at The Moon Under Water (JDW) Watford. Amber with a lively white head, leaving ample lacing. Bready malt with perfect hop balance and resinous palate. Another winner from Titanic.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2010
A Mes rate. Cask at Baker St. ’Sporks.
A slightly hazy golden brown colour with an impressive off white head and plenty of lace. The aroma is far too citric for me. Smells like something you use to clean the bath. There is clearly some good stuff underneath but it’s masked by all the lemon. The flavour is much better. A balanced bitter with an IPA like hoppiness that sneaks in and out between the semi-sweet malt until it whips it’s grundies off at the finish and demands attention. Wow, I’m really enjoying this one. Delicate and subtle, then almost instantly brash and in your face. Decidedly English, then decidedly American. A pleasing bready background with some pretty much adorable tangerine, followed by a bitter assault for the finalé. Interesting and enjoyable all round. Win.
