Great Divide Brewing Company Titan IPA American IPA at 7.1% ABV | 65 IBU (US$2.41 at Specs Main Houston, 355 ml, packaged on 6-Dec-2017, acquired 3-Mar-2018, reviewed 11-Mar-2018)
Appearance: slightly hazy deep gold with one fat finger of creamy white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: dank resiny pine, pale malt & caramel, tropical fruit. (9/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter (9/10 ) Palate: medium slightly oily body, moderate carbonation, off-dry building and lingering bitter finish. (4/5)
Now that is some seriously dank sticky icky! The bitter is big (dare I say, verging on titanic?) without being overwhelming, and nicely balanced by clean pale malt and light caramel. Despite being past the ninety day mark, this is still hoppy as all git-out. I like this a lot. (17/20)
My 256th from the 2010 Edition of 1001 Beers You Must Taste Before You Die, 246th from the 2013 edition, and 270th combining both editions.
