I’m a big fan of the Great Divide portfolio. Jake showed me the Yeti not too long ago… and it’s amazing! Anyway, today we are sipping on a big IPA called Titan. I wonder if they had the name before they had the ABV. Anyway, I like the Great Divide so let’s see what this one does for my palate.

In the Glass: In the glass it looks like a typical IPA. But the head is pretty thick and has a thick and creamy lace. Because of the head, I hope the beer has a thickness to it. It has a big ABV… 7.1%. Let’s see what she smells like.

Nose: It’s not as hoppy as I wanted it to be, but it has a subtle IPA nose. I like the hops, but the thickness of the head might be taking some away from the aroma. Plus, it’s right out of the fridge. I bet this heats up nicely.

Flavor: The flavor is incredible. There are a few things happening here. First you are hit with some bubbles, then are hit with the sweetness you expect out of a thick brew. Then the hops kick in, but it’s more like a tap… not too strong on the hops. They are subtle and provide a solid transition in to the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is great. There is a ton of stuff going on as the beer enters your mouth and moves to the back of the throat. You really do experience a lot as you smell/drink/swallow this beer.

Aftertaste: This is a thick beer… and the aftertaste leaves a certain thickness to be enjoyed. There is a hint of dryness on the back of the tongue. It makes me think of a handmade root beer or something. Just as the nose will get better as the beer heats up, I bet the flavors will change too.

This is one good IPA. Bottoms up people!

Definitely glad I grabbed this one! It stands out from other IPAs I have had without a doubt. The beer has a nice amber color with a smaller foamy head when poured and smells great. Not too overpowering with a pine scent like most IPAs have. My first sip I was very surprised. I was hit with a slight bite of citrusy hops which mellowed out with toasty malts. Its truly crafted wonderfully. I can tell this beer was greatly inspired by English Style IPAs. Love it!

Poured from a bottle into a glass. Pours a dark copper color, with minimal head that quickly leaves behind a nice lacing on my glass.

Smells of hops and a bready malt. I'm familiar with the brewery and their other IPAs, and the hop-malt balance is what I've come to expect and enjoy from them.

It tastes of piney, citrusy hops with a bready and caramel malt flavor following. The taste is very well balanced between hops and malts, with nothing being extremely overpowering.

It's moderately carbonated, and also thicker than I was expecting from a non-double IPA. Still, goes down quite smoothly.

Overall, another solid offering from the Great Divide. I was expecting a lot, and not let down.
