Glass - Sam Adams perfect pint

A - big frothy off white head with great retention sits on top of a dark copper colored liquid. Lots of lacing.

S - the aroma is puny hops with a strong caramel malt undertones.

T - flavor is citrusy hop bitterness with a big malt backbone. Not all that complex, but extremely flavorful.

M - medium bodied carb is on the higher side but it coats the mouth nicely.

D - very tasty IPA. I was not into big hoppy brews not to long ago but it's brews like this that showcase the style so well you can only think "I want some more."

A brownish amber with a medium off white head on the pour. Good lacing. Aroma and Taste of earthy floral piney hops, with a nice fruity citrusy bouquet, and a nice caramel malt. Palate is a medium body, crisp with good carbonation. Finish is caramel malt , earthy piney hops, resiny with some fruity citrusy floral notes ending with a sweet bitter hoppy bite for balance. Overall a good crisp balanced IPA.

I am not sure why but I really do not have much to say about this beer. It is a strong amber color with a nice thick head. Flavor is a little weak and the aroma is very floral and syrupy. Personally I am not a big fan of traditional IPAs and only enjoy the stronger IIPAs and that may explain my review but I am just not that impressed by this beer. I am still very willing to try the hercules but I am not going to say more about this beer except that it is truly average in all ways.

12 oz. bottle with label that states brewed third week of February (2008, I hope).

Poured a very deep golden to light bronze with a slight haze; a fluffy head that slowly receded to about an 1/8 inch white head. The head left plenty of lacing on the glass.

Fruity, citrusy aromas are prevalent.

A blast of hoppy bitterness attacks the palatte leaving a pleasant, grassy bitterness on the tongue with a faint malty sweetness. As the ale warms the ale balances nicely between the bitter hop flavor and the sweet malt.

This was a medium bodied ale with restrained carbonation.

With an ABV of 6.8 percent, this may not be the ideal session ale, but it is a smooth drinking one.

Comes out a cloudy pale orange with a beautiful white head. Lacing is ironman strong, coating the entire glass by the time I'm done. Taste is a well balanced mix of hops and malt- grapefruit, orange, apple, carmel, rising bread, straw. Bitterness is present but not at all overpowering, which I like a lot- I'm so often turned off from IPAs which I find to be too bitter on the aftertaste. Could drink this one all night.

A- Almost a tan orange color. Great carbonation and a head that was a bit on the thin side.

S- Hoppy. Some caramel malt as well. Had more of a sweet aroma. Not too much else is distinguishable.

T- Upfront hops, and a bit of fruitiness soon after. Like apple but sweeter. Possibly pear. Caramel notes coat it. Good balance.

M- Quite full for the ABV. Almost as full as a DIPA. Finishes Dry. Carbonation suits it well.

D- A great refreshing IPA. Flavorful, and while hoppy, it's also balanced well. Good in pretty much all regards. This beer has the bitterness that I expect from an IPA, and then it flaunts some great fruity flavor as well.

Pours light copper color with a thin, foamy head. Strong citrus smell. Very fruity, citrus taste with a strong hoppy aftertaste almost piney, but seems tart with a dry taste. Bitterness prevails long after drinking. Good, but not my favorite IPA. Would drink when available. It is just a little too tart for me to go to every time.

Huge fan of Great Divide beers. This one may actually be the most complete and balanced beer I have had from them.

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass

A- This is one of those brews that once it is poured, you know its going to be a good one. Titan IPA poured a thick orange/brown mix color. Big off white head and a ton o' lacing. Wow, truly glowing a beautiful i9n the glass. A pretty sight indeed.

S- The nose was almost entirely malt on this one. Thick sweet candy like caramel aroma emintating from the glass.

T- That malty taste shows up again with some toasted bready flavors. Big citrus/pine/hop taste- perfect blance.

M- Thick and chewy for an IPA - buttery and delightful.

D- One of the best IPA's I have ever had, if not the best. This should be a staple in any beer lovers fridge.

World Class.

4.03/5  rDev -1.5%

A clear light amber color with thick white fluff resting atop. Good retention and plenty of lacing on the glass. really a beautiful beer.

I smelled this before putting it anywhere near my nose, the citrus and woody hops were really enticing.

To be honest I wasn't sure how the taste was going to match up to the smell, generally when the scent of hops is this strong in a beer it ends up being too bitter for me. That wasn't the case with this IPA. The malts really balanced the bitterness out with a nice mild sweetness that leaves the mouth with a crisp and refreshing taste to linger on the tongue.

This is undoubtedly one of, if not THE, best IPAs I've had.

Poured from a 12oz bottle to a SA Imperial snifter glass.

Pours a pretty dark orange with a 2 finger head that laces to a thin line of tight fluffy bubbles. Big grapefruit smell on the nose followed by mango and a nice melon or honey dew scent, the malt melds well with the citrus hops evening them out for a damn good smelling IPA. The taste is much the same big citrus sweet malts, a slightly bitter sweet finish. Medium on the mf very sweet, and dry and a nice creaminess to it as it goes down. Overall this is awesome, glad i picked it up, will do again.

A: Golden orangeish with a small head and nice residual lacing.

S: Citric notes, Pine, Wheat biscuits, Hint of honey.

T: Hint of caramel, Citric notes, Pine, Malt. Very grapefruity!

M: Plenty of bitterness but nicely balanced with a solid malt backbone.

A very american ipa with the focus on citric & floral hops and that's the way i like it. This was plenty to get my hop-cravings satisfied for the evening. Very drinkable and very good!
