look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12 ounce bottle, unsure of bottling date, but it is in 2010. Pours crystal clear orange amber color with a dense 2 finger off white head with amazing retention, that reduces to a lacing cap. Nice lacing on the glass. Aromas of orange, mango, pine, caramel, and a bit of grapefruit. Decent aroma strength, improves as it warms up. Taste of fairly strong grapefruit, orange, and pine; with some caramel in the background. Sweet tastes on the front that lead to a fairly strong bitterness on the finish that lingers for a bit with citrus and pine flavors. Very smooth drinkability for it’s alcohol level. No alcohol noticed other than a very small warming after the finish. Very nice balance of sweetness and bitterness in this as well. Medium carbonation and body. Overall a very good IPA, tasty stuff.

Appearance ::
It pours a deep and hazy amber with lots of visible carbonation. The head was small for the style (may have been a bad pour) and didn't retain particularly well but had a nice even lacing.

Smell ::
On a clear palate the piney smell of the aroma hops overpower the mild toasty malt. After adjustment, the malt is much more pronounced as caramel. It is slightly citrusy, very piney, and reminds me of a spring meadow. I found the smell to be very pleasant.

Taste ::
The first sip hides the malt with its carbonation and very strong hop flavors, leaving the residual taste of orange peels. After my palate adjusts, the beer takes on a balancing malty sweetness.

Feel ::
There's a good bit of carbonation as is expected with the style, but it isn't excessive. It's also fairly thicker than expected.

Drink ::
I love the hoppy piney wild smell of this beer. The alcohol is completely disguised by the aroma and flavor hops... excellent design. It starts bitter but as the palate adjusts it is balanced and delicious.

Pours a clear amber color with a nice white head and good lacing on the glass. The aroma is fruity. Full carbonation hits your tongue with force making room for a short lived maltiness followed by a hop presence that although pronounced, it is an IPA afterall, is not overwhelming. I did not get the impression that hops were added just to show off as in some IPAs, they were part of the plan.

On tap at the brewery

Appearance: little head on pour, murky orange color.

Smell is of strong banana phenol. It dominates the palate and detracts from anything else going on.

Taste is of coriander and belgian funk from belgian yeast. Banana really dominates this beer. It has a slight astringent dry afterness.

Mouthfeel is sort of watery with some moderate carbonation.

Drinkability: Banana dominates this beer and detracts somewhat to the drinkability. This beer is not bad, but there need to be more going on than banana.

A twist to the Titan, this is at their tap-room. I think it's a test run.
The Titan goes Belgian. Pours a hazy yellow/gold, nice foaming head, very rich looking.
Smell is a subtle yeasty Belgian ale, with hints of dried hops and citrus. The yeast and citric hops compete over dominance. Kind of nice.
Taste is good. The IPA and Belgian yeast go at it again. Corriander, orange peel, lemongrass, golden raisin...they all go together. Just enough hops to tame the yeast, and vice versa. A good balance. Nice summer brew. Since the Hot Shot is gone, I hope this comes in.
