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.

Bottle from Tipples, with Best Before date of 5/31/14. Pours a beautiful copper crimson color, perfectly clear, with a nice big and fluffy off white head. Aroma of sweet and bitter grapefruits, lots of caramel malts, lots and grassy hops, very nice. The flavor is a medium bitter, super dank and resinous grapefruit, pine, and caramel combination. Hops keep this somewhat light and airy despite the dank resinous feel, and it goes down pretty easy. Clean finish, slightly dry, with a lasting bitter on the end. Medium low carbonation. Overall I like this one, and am now impressed by Uinta after this and Hop Notch.

Bottle to glass. Pours a darker amber color, clear. Aroma is great, smells fantastic. Good mixture of pine, pine resin and pineapple. Taste is piney hops, pine resin with interesting mix of citrus fruits. Palate is semi oily, medium carbonation. Very good DIPA. Great bitterness. Underrated offering.

surprised I haven’t rated this since I have had the old large format bottles a couple times. This was a new logo 12 oz, poured golden orange with off white head. Notes are pine, dct citrus including grapefruit/orange and some sweet malts. Finished a little weird but nothing off putting. Think it was better before..

Dark golden orange body, medium sized white head, spotty lacing. Grapefruit, resin, sticky sweet malts, some orange. Medium to full bodied, a bit rough and unfinished.

750 mL bottle. Ruby-brown with a small beige head. Beautiful aroma blends caramel malt with American hops - maybe Simcoe or Warrior. This is really an ASA, I think, because the malt is always there. As is the booze. And the bitterness is not overwhelming.

IndianaRed (2186) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 28, 2014
On tap at Brewforia, Meridian, ID. Clear amber with a persistent modest white head. Strong sharp piney aroma. Full up front pine and resinous hop flavor. Lots of bitterness but balanced with the flavors. Finishes quick and a lingering woody trailer. Bold and bitter but nice flavors.

Dark amber color with a light brown head. Tropical citrus aroma. Hops, hops and more hops. Bitter all the way through.

roxtersoxter (230) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Pours hazy amber with large tan head out of bottle. Floral aroma with hops and citrus. Grain fruit flavor on the front end with dry hop flavor on back end. Good beer overall but was hoping for more complex flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle. Aroma of honey and alcohol. Flavors of stone fruit, and a sweet fruit schnapps or some such. Lots of sweet here, almost no malt presence. Faint grapefruit at the finish. And still sweet.

Clear orange-brown with minimal light tan head. Aroma strong hops, floral, tropical-citrus, grassy. Medium-full body. Light carbonation. Some alcohol. Flavor is bitter. There is some background sweetness. Complex hop flavors, herbs, pine, grass. Some malt but balance is strongly towards the bitter hops. Solid.
