We bought Thai food and Great Divide's packaging says this goes good with Thai and curry. Sold.

Beautiful color - Jurassic Park stuck mosquito amber. Did you know gintaras is Lithuanian for amber? It's true. Dense head quickly collars and leaves some foamy fingerprints.

Aroma is bold pine and juicy fruit hop. Sweet candy malt underneath.

Tastes like it smells. What's with Colorado and super sweet IPAs (I'm looking at you Oskar Blues). Sharp, buzzing pine needle bitter. Burnt sugar aftertaste I don't care for.

Too sweet for my liking as a more than one IPA.

Copper colored with a foamy head that settles slowly. Smells very earthy. Like a pine forest. A bit of citrus too. Tastes nice and bitter. The hops give a big kick right up front, with a big pine flavor. There's also a bit of maltiness coming after the hops that adds a bit of sweetness, but still can't overcome the power of the hops in this one. Medium body and carbonation.
Great IPA!

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Color is a rich copper. Poured a thick, almost creamy head. Left lots of lacing on the glass throughout. Smell is citrusy hops, particularly grapefruit. Similar to that of most IPAs. Couldn't wait to taste it - packs a serious hop pinch that any IPA fan will love. Hops are balanced by a mellow sweetness that is carried throughout, but the hoppy bitterness comes back in the finish. Mouthfeel of this IPA was good. The carbonation was light and refreshing.

Overall, one of the better IPAs I've had to date. Most enjoyable part was the taste. Great Divide has a great thing going here. I wish it had more drinkability, but nonetheless, still a great brew.

Bottled on April 18 2012. Poured into a snifter.

Kept a nice 1/2 inch finger for awhile then it dropped back in. Beautiful reddish tint to this IPA. More red than most. Nose is a nice piney citrusy smell. Not overpowering at all and the first tastes confirmed that. Nice balance of hops and it melds real well with the sweet malt. I get a little carmel or nuttiness malt flavor. Slightly earthy. I really do like that!

Its extremely sessionable. An awesome balance of flavors in the hops they chose. Delicious is all I can say. Close to the top of my favorite IPAs.

Great Divide Brewing Company - Titan IPA

Aroma:  Pine and grapefruit in the nose.  Some malty sweetness.

Appearance:  Light amber.  Half a finger of head with some lacing present.

Flavor:  Bitter from start to finish.  Some sweetness in the middle.  Bitterness lingers in the finish.  Some pine and grapefruit.  Fairly simple hop profile.  Some astringency present as the beer warms.

Mouthfeel:   Light to medium bodied.  Good carbonation.

Overall:  Good balance between hop bitterness and malt sweetness.  Not my favorite IPA, but certainly well constructed.  I could drink a few of these on a summer day.
