COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Detour blazes the trail for fresh and bold Double IPAs. Four varieties of hops combine to step up the flavor profile. A hoppy adventure that finishes dry. Big in alcohol and character. Venture to pair with other spirited flavors such as those found in spicy ethnic foods.

12oz can from The Hop Yard in Raleigh. Reddish-orange hue, murky clarity with mostly lasting white fizzy head. Decent lacing. Strong grapefruit and orange hop aromas. Strong citrus grapefruit hop taste up front with more of the same finish. Fizzy on palate, good mouth feel.

ajnepple (3564) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - JUN 20, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2015 12 oz single bottle from Molly’s Spirits. Deep amber and light hazy appearance with a sticky white head. Aroma of melons, oranges, pine, resinous hops, sweet malts and light caramel/toffee. Similar flavor, big resinous hops, medium to heavy bitterness with a moderate malt sweetness in the middle. Medium to full body with a light syrupy feel and a lingering bitter finish. Not bad by any means, but I rarely find myself enjoying this style these days. Pairing: Hot Buttered Rum - Busted in Utah

12oz bottle to piny glass. Pours deep copper red. Big creamy head with big lacing. Aroma of big caramel malts, pine, earth and grapefruit. Taste is spice, pepper, caramel malts, pine, citrus peel, and dank. Finish is pine bitter, pepper and boozy heat. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy with good carb. Good DIPA!

Lothore (597) - California, USA - JUN 14, 2015
pours a deep reddish brown hue with a two finger, light brown, head that fades quickly with very little lacing. Deep caramel and resiny pine on the nose. Caramel, resiny pine, vanilla, deep resiny bitterness on the back end. Thick and sticky with ample carbonation. Decent brew but a little too resiny for me.

coachd (341) - Missouri, USA - JUN 3, 2015
Sweet and grassy aroma, just malty enough. I am picking up some hops in the scent, a preview of things to come. Appearance is of the perfect IPA - light bronze color with an ivory head. The taste is the perfect marriage of honey sweetness and grapefruit hops. Palate is fantastic for the style. Silky smooth and rich, incredibly well made. I loved this DIPA.

BVery (8064) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Bottle. Murky orange pour with a small soapy white head. Big tropical fruit / citrus, plus some resin. Sweet malts - seems to add body, but this is about as much malt as I would care for. Pretty tasty stuff.

AmEricanbrew (6377) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - MAY 30, 2015
Bottle@ trailer back in February 2015. Clear amber color with ivory head. Floral, pine, pale malt aromas. Medium bodied. Big citrusy, tropical fruit, pine bitter flavors with a malty sweet caramel base brew to balance---a bit too much maltage though____not bad.

Berard (465) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 24, 2015
Draft. Ordinary hop aroma with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Just a hint of complexity in a disappointing double. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sweet and boozy, but pretty smooth dipa. Dark amber color. Resinous pines, caramel malts, and a heat all present. Still a nice creamy body. Pretty solid.
