Scent of hops, pine, and citrus. Hazy gold colour. Flavour of orange peel, lemon, and hops. Mild bitterness with medium body. Very drinkable! A nice change from the abrasiveness of other IPA’s.

This was great. Bottle shared with northropfrye. A lovely floral bouquet. This is the first beer I had that reminded me of elderflower, particularly St. Germain liqueur. Fabulous.

Finally! A session IPA that actually tastes like an IPA! Most IPAs under 5.5% are to IPAs what non-alcohol beer is to actual beer. Not this. The nose is light mango, the taste is grapefruit and it holds your tongue when you’re done. Top notch job here, Muskoka!

Vibrant citrus and passion fruit aroma. Resin. Floral. Taste is more subdued. Overall a nice unique session IPA.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2014 6-pack from LCBO. Pours hazy light amber. Citrus fruit and grass aroma. Light taste with citrus and grassy flavours. Pretty nice. Light, but still has a little bit of body to it, with good carbonation. Bitterness creeps up as you drink it. Seems very sessionable. Nicely done.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml bottle. Pours a hazy, pale gold with a film of a head that faded very quickly. Aroma is nice and hoppy. Pine, citrus, resin, and mild tropical fruit. Taste is a mild, grassy bitter. Hints resin, orange citrus, grapefruit, and pine with a drawn out, bitter aftertaste. Low-medium body and carbonation. Clean mouth feel with a resin finish. Overall not bad. A good amount of hop flavour and taste from the dry hopping but it looks a bit plain. Nearly no head right off the bat. Might get again to re-try.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2014 Hey it is what it says it is. Its a lighter IPA and good for drinking as a easy session beer , but yet you still get some good hop taste to it. If you prefer stronger IPA’s with more bitterness then you are better off with a Mad Tom or Twice as Mad Tom from Muskoka brewery. But Detour is good for what it says it is. Probably be best for drinking on a hot summer day in the summer.

Poured light hazy gold colour with thin head. Grapefruit aroma with pine, very inviting. Grapefruit malt flavour, but with citrus sweetness. Medium bitterness. Very drinkable and enjoyable. Best from this brewery so far.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a lightly cloudy bright golden colour with average-sized, lacey white head. Aroma is full of tropical fruit and pine resin, as well as some light caramel. Flavour is slightly watery but has such strong citric and resiny hoppy notes that it’s not too noticeable; some gentle caramel underneath. Reasonably bitter finish. Nice example of a session IPA.

nice citra nose, golden color with some haze, thus the unfiltered label... head is decent white foam. mouthfeel is light but proper fro style. flavour is citrus and tropical fruit, some melon even. this one will be perfect in the summer when Mad tom might just be too much. cheers to the SESSION IPA
