This beer is trash. Garbage trash. My buddy and I wanted to try something new. And we made a great dishonor. Between this and the Laurelwood Workhorse IPA, we fucked up something randy. This beer boasts of balance between "...rich malty sweetness...." and "crisp hop bitterness". And they lied. To all of us. The maltiness wildly savages the hopiness, leaving an overly sweet flavor on the palate. Its relatively high alcohol content makes it difficult to choke down. I'm sad I bought a six pack, I'm going to have to donate it to to the local AA chapter.

This beer pours a clear pale orange with a 1 finger head and lasting lace. The appearance is the highlight of this brew. It's aroma is faint grapefruit with malt in the background. The flavor is purely hop bitterness and not much else. There's a faint hint of sweet malt in the first sip but after that just overwhelming hop bitterness with a dry finish. The mouthfeel is light-medium. Great Divide Titan IPA is purley a hop bomb, not recommended.

On tap at Stone.

A: Dark golden orange with a one finger white head and some scattered lacing.

S: Pretty bland. I get a lot of caramel with a borderline cloying sweetness. There's a little orange. Blah.

T: Bready malt with strong metallic notes and muted citrus. Incredibly bland and the malt profile reminds me of cardboard and old bread with some booze.

M: Medium body, medium carbonation, slick and sticky mouthfeel.

Overall: This is bad.

Chilled 12oz bottle into a glass. Purchased from K&L in Redwood City. There's no bottle date on this, even though GD usually dates their stuff. However, given that they just expanded into CA this month, I think it's reasonable to assume this is a new, fresh batch.

A: Pours a clear amber body with a finger of long-retaining off-white head. Thick, fluffy collar with some scattered film on top of the beer. Nice sheets of lace during a swig, with some sticking behind as register marks.

S: Hm. It's not very pungent at all. On swirling it, I finally start picking up caramel and darker, sweeter malts. The hop character lags far behind; eventually it produces some citrus and pine. Underwhelming...

T: Kind of devoid of any flavor except caramel and some light hoppy flavors (grapefruit, maybe tangerine, pine). The finish is long-lasting and bitter. This has the characteristic signs of an old IPA, except it's not old. Wut.

M: Light-medium bodied. Good carbonation. A soft mouthfeel overall. Too bad there's no flavor to deliver.

D: Meh. Second time I've had this (once from a trade), and I've come to the conclusion that GD's IPAs just aren't worth it.

Draft at Denver airport. Hops are clouded by overtly perfume flavor. Not for me. Debated sending it back without finishing.
