4.58/5 rDev +12%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
Pours out a deceptive copper, I can't tell if it's dark and cloudy or bright and clear. Every time I try to pin it down, different angles and amounts of light give it a different look. It's definitely pretty though, with a moderately thick, off-whitish head. Decent retention. Appearance reminds me of some of the better IPAs or DIPA's I've had. Looks good but not great.
Smell is obviously hoppy. I have a feeling I should let this warm up quite a bit. It smells good, but on a cold December night, pulling this out of the fridge, it feels like it's too cold. ... Waiting a while definitely opened it up as I thought it would. Like a pineapple in a ceder tree Titan IPA is piney citrus in a big way. Better than the looks, I think the nose is a solid 4.5.
Full body taste, wonderfully thick. This is above average, good stuff. Just as the looks reminded me of the likes of 90 minute IPA, the taste is also pretty big, close to a double or imperial. As the label advertises, this is certainly an aggressively-hopped ale. But there is also the solid malt backbone delivering an amazing overall taste sensation. It's delicious but not entirely unique. So it's not a perfect 5, but it's damn good. I'd get it again. I have not been let down by Great Divide yet!

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.
