Days of the Beer, October 30

The beer for today is Great Divide Titan IPA.

On October 30, 1951. Harry Robinson Hamlin was born. He is best known for his portrayal of Michael Kuzak in L.A. Law. Prior to that TV show, he was known for being Perseus in the 1981 fantasy film Clash of the Titans.

Hamlin reprised his role of Perseus in the 2007 video game God of War II.

About the beer:

Titan IPA

Traditionally India Pale Ales, the hoppiest of all pales, were brewed with more alcohol and large quantities of hops in order to survive the lengthy ocean journey from the U.K. to India. Unlike our brewing forefathers, Great Divide enjoys the modern benefits of refrigeration and we don’t have any plans to ship Titan IPA to India. Instead, we brew Titan IPA for hop disciples – independent beer drinkers seeking out robust, flavorful beers characterized by their abundance of hops flavor, aroma and bitterness. As a big, aggressively hopped India Pale Ale, Titan IPA fills this bill – beginning with piney hop aromas and citrus hop flavors, and finishing with a rich, malty sweetness that is carefully balanced with crisp hop bitterness.

Titan IPA weighs in at a considerable 65 International Bittering Units (IBUs).

Alcohol by volume: 6.8%
So, for the star of Clash of the Titans, have a Titan yourself.
