On tap at the brewery while in Denver, CO

This IPA is legit!

When I sampled Drfitwood's Fat Tug IPA 2 days later in Vancouver, I realized how nice the Titan really was!?!

Are there better IPAs? some

Are there maltier/hoppier IPAs? yep

Is this what some would consider "sessionable?" absolutely

Is this beer balanced? 10-4 good buddy! As an IPA junkie, I have to say this beer is an A (93+) all day long! Its not over the top, nor is it weak...Titan stands out in the middle of the pack and is what I would call a "memorable" rather than "forgettable"-- a must try in Denver area.

Only wish I could get it out here in California--it was great while it lasted!

Poured into a pint glass.

A: Deep, dark amber with one finger head. Foamy, sticky lacing.

S: Bitter lemons, resiny pine, sliced oranges. Pretty run of the mill for an IPA, but nice nonetheless.

T: Citrusy with a very clean finish. Leaves a pleasant hoppy taste on the back of your tongue.

M: Perfect carbonation, just the right amount of bitterness.

O: A pretty solid IPA. Even though it's only a notch above a regular IPA, it's still very pleasant to drink.

330ml bottle served in a pint mug. Purchased at "Il Regno di Gambrinus" in Villorba. Thanks Paolo for your great beer selection!

A: Pours a clear orange color with a medium white to yellow aired head. Medium retention and many nice lacings left. Some particles cab be seen floating around

S: Throws off a delicious and refreshing bouquet of flowery and grassy hops. That's what we can call best in business. Caramel, caramel malts

T: Follows the nose. Slightly sweet caramel upfront, followed by caramel malts and a bitter hoppy end. Hops are a must, as expected: grassy, piny and a bit earthy. A bit metallic sensation too

M: Medium molasses body. Good carbonation. No alcohol can be felt despite the 7.1% ABV. Delicious bitter aftertaste

O: Absolutely drinkable beer. Absolutely well done. Goes to my top 10 American IPA list :)

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a crystal clear golden orange to copper in color with some very light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall beige head that quickly reduces to a thin film with a single thick patch and a thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Significant lacing is observed.

S: There is a light sweetness to the aroma with some hints of lighter fruits (pear and green grape). There is a heavy presence of both floral and pine hops.

T: The taste definitely follows the smell for this beer, it starts with some sweet caramel toasted malts and light fruits (pear and green grape). After that, the hop characteristics really come through with both floral and pine hops contributing to the bitterness. There is a mild hop bitterness but it does not really linger.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth and a very slight amount of chewiness.

O: I find this to be a very approachable and easy to drink American IPA. This beer is definitely one that I would enjoy a couple of during a session though I think the bitterness and higher ABV would not make this a session beer. There is a nice complexity to the smell and the taste and a very nice balance between the sweetness and the bitterness.

2 month old 12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
The pour yields a clear golden/copper like body with a finger of white head.
The nose hits with with sweetness and some subdued fruit, pine, and floral.
An assertive hop bitterness takes a hold at first and holds throughout. Piney and fruity. You pick up on the alcohol. Some sweet malt. The taste doesn’t scream beer of fame to me. The flavor seems fairly mild.
A good beer for sure...just not sure I would buy this again with so many other great IPA's lining the shelves. I would probably be up for trying a bottle under a month old if that ever happens.
