12 oz bottle traded with a local friend obtained during a trip he took into Colorado. This beer was poured into my perfect pint. Bottled on Apr 30, 2012.

Appearance: An almost clear golden amber beer with a rocky off white two finger head. Leaves some spotty lacing as it recedes. Very inviting.

Smell: Caramel malts mixed with citrus and pine. This particular bottle is a little old, so I may not be able to get all of the original scents.

Taste: This beer has a resinous sweetness. A caramel maltiness mixes with pine and a nice hoppy bitterness.

Mouthfeel: A smooth silky mouthfeel, very nice. Carbonation that is a little on the lower side. All combined a decadent feeling beer.

Overall: I am sure this is an excellent IPA. I need to re-review when I have a more fresh bottle. Even with this age, I am getting wonderful tastes. Why in the world does Utah have to be so ignorant with respect to beer. Brewed in Denver, and I cannot purchase it in SLC, makes not sense.

Not impressed. Very little aroma. Not very hoppy and too sweet. I'm amazed by the high praise this beer gets.

Accompanied by my great and awe-inspiring my grandmother, the Titan IPA pours hazy adequate dark orange with a medium intense off-white head. Rather quickly the head cleanly dissipates.

A balanced and complex uproar of aromas thrills my nostrils. Clearly of a pronounced intensity, bombastically hoped bringing citrus and fresh green grass. The beer greatly delivers another layer of aromas; wet cardboard, a caramelized malt furthermore hints of toffee and chocolate.

Oboy, this one is fresh and decidedly aromatic, orange zesty. Nice bold and concentrated malt body with a slight sweetness. The mid-palate is valiant, mousse mouth-filling and a bit sticky, whereas it at the same time is pretty fatty. The marked hops contributes to the more orange zest mirrored aftertaste in a perhaps more flowery sensation. Overall the harmonizing structure is well-secreting the alcohol in all that massive body and its smooth texture.

Totally impressed by the sexy complexity and boldness here. Hop me baby! http://quaffable.org/?p=163

A- pours a bright clear burnt orange. One finger head that dissipates. Good amount of carbonation coming off the bottom. Lacing is very pretty, sticking all the way down the glass.

S- slight pine, a lot of tropical fruit, peach aromas.Very pleasant.

T- quick pine bitterness, and tropical fruit followed by a good, sweet malt backbone. Extremely well balanced.

M- medium mouthfeel. It coats the tongue nicely. Not as much carbonation as the appearance would let on.

O- this is an excellent IPA. One of the best balanced IPAs I've have. It's very drinkable and highly flavorful without overdoing the hop bitterness. Tastes great on a hot Texas day. It surprisingly refreshing.

Buy again.
