4.23/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

12 Oz bottle poured into a tulip.
Bottle dated (10/25/2011) so not exactly fresh
Fresher then the Hercules DIPA I had which was almost a year old

A- Hazy orange with a 1.5 finger of a dense off white head. Excellent lacing. A lot of little particles floating around in the brew.

S- Im afraid this beer may have lost some pungency due to age but its still a nice smelling IPA. A very clean grainyness and crisp maltiness. A dark, skunky hop profile with characteristics of pine and overly ripened citrus fruits.

T- A good bit of bitterness in this beer. The hop profile is overly ripened citrus, some skunky characteristics, a tiny touch of pine needles. May not be fresh and strong but still quite nice. This beer has a nice clean malt backbone to it.

M- This beer is very drinkable but has a full body swimming with flavor and it also has a nice feel to it. The carbonation is all there and with the alcohol and bitterness, it just balances out perfectly. Aftertaste is pretty dry and fruity.

O- Impressed by this one, I feel it may have blown my socks off it it wasn't almost 7 months old! This and the Old Hercules DIPA I have had are very impressive beers that I would love to have another go at assuming I can get my mittens around a fresher batch. This is a world class IPA, get some.

[Best served in a Shaker glass]

The pour was a cloudy medium burnt orange with an average sized (1-2 finger) white rocky head that had good retention, reducing to a medium cap and having some good streaky lacing.

The aroma was of a caramel malt, pine and floral hops and a mild moldy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (orange peel).

The taste was a nice bitter hoppy with a touch of citrus throughout, and had a light malty sweetness and a hint of caramel towards the end. The flavor lasted an average amount of time after the swallow with a hoppy slightly sweet malty taste settling nicely on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was a bit beyond light in body and dry in texture with a lively carbonation.

Overall a nice refreshing twist on an IPA, the slight malty sweet finish was surprisingly enjoyable...

bottled feb 17 2012 (3 months old at time of drinking)
a: pours a light amber, with strong lacing and a quarter-inch head
n: hops (!) with pine and citrus
t: a hint of sweet malt up front, soon overwhelmed by delicous bitter pine hops; the citrus in the nose is strangely absent, but there's a good bit of yeast here
m: medium body with nice carbonation; no alcohol despite the 7.1%
o: an hoppy, easy-drinking IPA that tides me over when my preferred double IPAs aren't around

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.
