Titan poured a deep amber with a pile of white, fluffy head (although I admit I did pour with just a bit too much vigor… sometimes I just can’t help myself). Its aroma was one of citrusy hops, balanced by bready, caramel malts. Sweet with a citrus kick.
Hops hit hard upon first sip—just what I’d want out of an IPA—but the taste is really well balanced by the sweet malts. Hops taste citrusy with a hint of evergreen, but the flavor smooths out to a sweet, bready malt finish. Titan’s body is medium with a smooth, yet refreshing, mouthfeel.
At 7.10% ABV this might not be definable as a “session” beer but to be honest, this is one I could go on enjoying through an entire evening… whether I could stand up afterward is another matter entirely.
Most definitely recommended.
