Titan IPATitan IPA
Notes: Titan IPA is a big, aggressively hopped India Pale Ale brewed for hop disciples. It starts out with piney hop aromas and citrus hop flavors, and finishes with a nice rich, malty sweetness that is balanced with crisp hop bitterness.

11/20/22 12oz can from Washington Beer store. Chilly Sunday afternoon before the Steelers/Browns game.

Look is a cloudy gold.

Aroma is tropical pineapple and mango. Slight maltiness.

Decent carbonation. Sweet breadiness, bordering on banana bread. Slight sour undertones. Nice mouthfeel. Hop is present through the whole experience.

Not overly powerful. Brewer's notes describe this well.

Poured a slightly hazy light orange amber color with a two finger white head that dissipated slowly leaving heavy lacing. I suspect that the haziness is from being a few months past the can date.

Fruity nose with pineapple and citrus.

Malty flavor balanced with citrus and a piney finish.

Medium body and carbonation.

Overall, an enjoyable AIPA.

Light amber colour, pinapple smell and a bouquet of exotic fresh fruits with a bucket of IPA thrown in.

Good stuff, period. Theres a lot of IPA'S out there to have but as a Colorado boy, this is good stuff, great intro to the brewery. Nice balance of hops and citrus. Definitely one of the better ones I've had.

Appearance was a ruddy burnt orange almost burnt brown color with a thin white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Hops of orange, followed by a little less of grapefruit and pine nuts. Biscuit, bread malts add great balance. Really nice offering that I would buy if it was available here.

Poured from a can into tulip glass a huge 3F mid tan foamy head forms that settles quickly with loose lace from the top to bottom. Color is a coppery dull amber and is about 70% transparent.

The nose presents a nose that is vegetal as in produce department variety, with just a bit of an off note that I can only describe as veg decay, bong water or over fermented mash. It hints that I am going to be hit with a somewhat dank malty hop bomb.

Big slightly toasted malty mash on the palate with a dry danky bitterness. It starts lightly sweet and smooth on the tongue with a fairly strong toasted grain vibe and ends with lightly dry finish with a danky bitterness. This dank is nowhere as near offputting as the nose.

Mouthfeel is medium with a round slickness and warmth to the taste. Carbonation is light and bubbles are fine. Some alcohol tang on the end .

Wow, what an odd beer. The nose really is doing me in, some bong water mixed with beer is what I get. Not good. Taste is another matter as it is decent yet I cannot enjoy it because you have to breath. Maybe I got a bad can but it is still less than 2 months old. Perhaps it is the type of hops used that turn it a bit too dank for me.

11/19/20

Can to snifter. Canning date 4/9/20. A bit stale but will try it anyway.


Look: bright clear orange. Hint of brown. Head is creamy and khaki colored with excellent retention.

Aroma: 50% pine. 30% biscuit and cracker, 20% citrus.

Taste: piney-er version of jai-alai. Biscuit and pine build throughout. Light citrus.

Feel: a little sticky, medium body. Medium carbonation.



Impressed with how well this holds up at 7 months. Just enough sweetness to carry some east coast into a predominantly west coast ipa.

A classic AIPA, just made right. The up front taste brings a bit of malt and the finish has the hoppy bite expected from this style. My first and quick second in quite a while, I'd forgotten how good this beer is.
