From The Brewery

Titan IPA is a big, aggressively hopped India Pale Ale brewed for hop disciples. It starts out with piney hop aromas and citrus hop flavors, and finishes with a nice rich, malty sweetness that is balanced with crisp hop bitterness.

ABV:7.1%

Review

Appearance: As usual, I enjoyed this beer in my tulip glass. It pours a pretty 24k gold yellow with a nice white cap that leaves MASSIVE lacing.

Smell: Giant citrus orange hops with a backbone of sweet toasty caramel malt.

Taste: A ton of hops, but still very balanced. Starts off big orange citrus followed up by a toasted malt sweetness – like a lightly toasted English muffin. Building over the beer is flavors of grapefruit, yeast esters and a little heat. A whole bunch of citrus and hops.

Mouthfeel:Creamy, full with the right amount of carbonation.

Drinkability: Higher than some with this ABV.

Notes: A very solid American/Colorado style IPA. Great Divide never has let me down; they always make exemplary versions of all the beers they make.
