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.

niquillis (2604) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2014
On cask at White Star, Stoke. A red brown pour with off white head. I was looking forward to this but its dominated by alcohol warmth and nothing else seems to fight through. Disappointing.

tombyars (1672) - 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 (7707) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, 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.

markas101 (2427) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - 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.

sm89walt (2057) - 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.
