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.

Draft in a tulip - nose is citrus, pine and caramel. Very hoppy. Malty backbone. Yummy in my tummy.

PhatB420 (615) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 29, 2014
12oz into a stemmed tulip. Pours a rustic amber dark cherry orange brown. Moderate lacing, light head retention that covers the brew, and about a 1cm head that starts off large and frothy. Aroma of grain hops, musky cedar, pine sap, fresh cut grass, and more fresher hops. Taste is super hop smack, a darker hop explosion similar to torpedo. More ale like in that aspect. But the hop presence opens up after bringing floral, pine, grapefruit. Drinks heavy, solid brew, great sticky hop flow, juicy pineapple makes an appearance as well. Dry malt finish. Ones not enough.

drsordr (1001) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Draft sampler light copper. Nose mango and sweet hop, light pine, hint of dank. Tatse nice bitter up front, dank hop and heat from alcohol. Some sweet early palate then high bitter through the finish.

bth122 (1226) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Bottle. Pours a amber color with a one finger head. Very nice tripical citrus hop aroma. Taste is grapefruit, pineapple, some pine. Medium heavy bitterness. Some malt backbone almost creates some balance but not quite. Caramel notes. Pretty darn good.

snoworsummer (1931) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 22, 2014
From a bottle. Pours almost clear bright copper with a bubbly off white head and lots of lacing. Tastes like strong hops, caramel, pine, orange, and light grapefruit and booze. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like musky pine hops, caramel, orange, and sweet alcohol.

sonnycheeba (3362) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear, bright amber with frothy off-white head. Aroma is citrus fruit, floral notes, biscuit and cereal malts, and some tropical fruit notes. Flavor is dry malt base with a hint of caramel quickly followed by sharp hop bitterness, light grapefruit, and light pineapple; lingering hop bitterness through the finish. Medium body and carbonation.

regspeir (199) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Poured a dark golden orange from a 12-oz bottle with a healthy 2-finger, white head which dissipated quickly to a coating. Lacing was ample and lasting. Nose was pine, citrus and some floral notes. Taste was malty, biscuity with some citrus (pineapple, mango) and caramel. Aftertaste was dominated by resiny, woody bitterness. Carbonation wasn’t intense nor was there any overpowering stickiness. Some alcohol warming present but not overwhelming. I wouldn’t avoid this but won’t go searching either.

ThreeCats (554) - ISRAEL - JUN 21, 2014
Slightly hazy copper with a nice off-white, orange-tinged head. Aroma sweet and orangy, fresh grass, and a veggie note. Taste full, sweet, bitter and slightly metallic. This beer has more mouthfeel than actual flavor. Citrusy/lemony palate.

jbruner (2161) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Pours a clear golden brown on tap with fluffy white head that leaves good lace. Aroma is big on the resinous citrus and tropical fruit hops, hint of biscuit malt behind it. Taste follows, but more caramel instead pod biscuit and add some floral hoppiness. No real hint of the booze, good carbonation, great balance for the style while still being hop forward.

BoostIPA (1198) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Dank, boozy, sweet, bitter. Frothy. Slick. High boost. Drinks pretty good but wouldn’t buy again.
