Picked up a six pack of Titan IPA at Jungle Jim's in Fairfield, OH.
I had not heard of Great Divide before coming across a few of their beers at the aforementioned grocery store. This is the first I have tried.
For my money this is probably the most complete IPA I have tried. Other good examples like Avery and Two-Hearted stick out because of how hoppy and dry they were. The Titan IPA was hoppy yes, but had enough malt or something else to lend the beer a subtle sweetness that makes it easily the most drinkable I have ever had.
As an unintended, but welcome, comparison, I finished the sixer of the Titan as I began working through a sextet of Three Floyds' Alpha King. While a good IPA the Alpha King still has too much of the hoppy bitter/dry character to stand up to the superb beverage that is Great Divide's Titan IPA. I just hope there other styles are as good within their groups as the Titan is to its.

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.
