Comes out of the tap a semi-transparent dark coppery amber with a thick, fine-bubbled, amber-tan head. Strong, hoppy aroma has a firm fruity overtone that is mainly apple and pear with a whisper of banana, and has just a whiff of caramel. Lip-smacking flavor has strong fruity notes, apple and pear with a hint of - cherry? It has malty, hoppy and caramel tones, and a little bit of bitterness as well as a honey-sweet hint. Firm-bodied texture is lively, tingly and sassy, leaving a fizzy, fruity, hoppy and malty finish. A Titan indeed!

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Right after I poured this beer, my wife walked by and said,"oooh, that smells sweet". The head and lacing were both good and lasted quite a while. I was eating on a little Tillamook sharp cheddar during the session, and it paired wonderfully. Like all IPA's this one has some heavy hopiness, and the sharp cheddar lent it's help. This is a highly drinkable beer, especially when some good snacks are paired.
