look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
12oz. bottle poured into my trusty mug.
A- deep, slightly hazy goldenrod color, with hints of orange. This one could be the reference standard by which IPA appearance is judged. Thick, white head, could be slightly more head, but that's my only gripe on appearance. Nice sticky lacing down the glass.
S-Citric and slightly piney hops. You can detect the sweetness of
the malts on the smell as well.
T- Big, bitter grapefruit hops up front, but a really nice balancing malt sweetness. The bitterness turns slightly piney, and has a very, very long bitter finish, but not unpleasantly so. This one really gets you on the back and sides of your tongue. The malt bill is complex for an IPA which is why I love this one so much. Biscuity, caramelly, with some notes of black tea if you really search for them. Fantastic.
M- quite slick, and it really parches the mouth, and just says "sip me again".
O- Titan is a fantastic representation of the style. It has that something extra that so many lack. A must-try. It makes me so sad they pulled out of non-metro Pennsylvania, but I'll just have to pick up my Great Divide on trips to Maryland or Virginia. If I could only have one IPA for the rest of my life, it would likely be Titan.

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Bottled on 4/18/14.
A- Hazy orange with reddish accents. Poured with a thin 1/4 finger head that moved to a quick lace within a minute.
S- Pale malts, biscuit, some faint citrus and grass.
T - Very subdued, more like an English IPA. Mango, orange, dirt and grass on the finish, with some spice lurking in the background.
M - Carbonation is medium low, a touch watery, but very smooth refreshing.
O - Not sure if being three months old muted the hops some. Either way, this is a highly drinkable IPA that goes down fast. Will seek it out again if I find it closer to the bottle on date.
