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.

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.

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 (7952) - 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 (6331) - 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 (454) - 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.

Dangerously smooth, this is the kind of beer that gets me in trouble. Super tasty, ridiculously chuggable, high ABV, balanced extremely well particularly considering it’s a DIPA. Would recommend to a friend. Hell yeah Uinta, yet another winner.

altonbrownd (3752) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Nice amber body with thin head. Really super hoppy taste with caramel notes. Sharp, sweet, malty flavours. Caramel in there and sugar sweet. Really nice and full-bodied beer.

High bitterness, but with enough malt to balance it. Slight grapefruit notes. Somewhat floral.

Pours a clear golden copper with a nice white head that settles to a thick ring with good lacing. Aroma of fruit nectar with a caramel malt sweetness and a bit of pine and alcohol. Taste is very similar with mango and fruit nectar and moderate caramel sweetness. Pine and alcohol flavor come in at the end with a small amount of spiciness. Finishes mostly dry with a moderate level of piney bitterness. Mouthfeel is semi sticky with a medium/full body and somewhat lively carbonation. More sweetness than I like in my IPAs.
