Titan is a single hop, IPA designed to showcase the hop aroma and character of Southern Passion, a locally bred variety of hops that provides bitterness and a wonderful passionfruit aroma. The hop was originally known as US4/78 and hybridized in the Outeniqua Mountains where all our local hops are cultivated. The hop was only ever utilized for bittering and, in 2012; we were the first craft brewery to brew a big IPA with Southern Passion. The golden pour hints at the crystal malts used to impart some sweetness and the 8% ABV makes for a solid malt backbone. This beer will develop with age and is a nice winter warmer but balanced enough to enjoy cold on a summer day.
