A twist to the Titan, this is at their tap-room. I think it's a test run.
The Titan goes Belgian. Pours a hazy yellow/gold, nice foaming head, very rich looking.
Smell is a subtle yeasty Belgian ale, with hints of dried hops and citrus. The yeast and citric hops compete over dominance. Kind of nice.
Taste is good. The IPA and Belgian yeast go at it again. Corriander, orange peel, lemongrass, golden raisin...they all go together. Just enough hops to tame the yeast, and vice versa. A good balance. Nice summer brew. Since the Hot Shot is gone, I hope this comes in.

Comes out of the tap a semi-transparent dark coppery amber with a thick, fine-bubbled, amber-tan head. Strong, hoppy aroma has a firm fruity overtone that is mainly apple and pear with a whisper of banana, and has just a whiff of caramel. Lip-smacking flavor has strong fruity notes, apple and pear with a hint of - cherry? It has malty, hoppy and caramel tones, and a little bit of bitterness as well as a honey-sweet hint. Firm-bodied texture is lively, tingly and sassy, leaving a fizzy, fruity, hoppy and malty finish. A Titan indeed!

On tap at the brewery

Appearance: little head on pour, murky orange color.

Smell is of strong banana phenol. It dominates the palate and detracts from anything else going on.

Taste is of coriander and belgian funk from belgian yeast. Banana really dominates this beer. It has a slight astringent dry afterness.

Mouthfeel is sort of watery with some moderate carbonation.

Drinkability: Banana dominates this beer and detracts somewhat to the drinkability. This beer is not bad, but there need to be more going on than banana.

A - Deep red-gold color, verging on copper. 2 fingers off-white head fades to thin layer of off white foam.

S - Baking bread, hop, light roasty-caramel.

T- Bready maltyiness, fades shortly to hop flavor, which moves quickly to bitterness. The bitterness lingers.

M - Medium, tiny amount of astringency on the tip of my tongue.

D - About in the middle of the curve for a IPA.
