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.

MrBunn (2528) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle from Mustard Seed Market. Pours a clears orange with a medium head that dies down quickly . Aromas of grainy maltiness with a little honey and some light orange scents. Flavor has a lot of grain and sugar with a decent bitterness and an orange and floral edge to the hops flavor, but it kind of falls a little flat and comes off as a sweet sticky thing that is good, but uninspiring.

kraddel (4344) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - FEB 18, 2015
Pours hazy , unclear dark amber , with a small yet creamy and rather stable head . Smell is very malty, with a bitter side and a fruity back . Bit sweet . Taste is damn good, just what I seek in an IIPA . Malty forward , creamy mouthfeel , hoppy , bitter, some fruits , but not too much of them . Finish is bitter, with clear malt tones . Lovely beer in every aspect !

M82 (366) - Kansas, USA - FEB 17, 2015
A clear amber body sits beneath a tall, creamy-smooth, frothy capped head which falls to reveal thick layers and of eclectic lace all around above a thick ring and large island

Intertwined, medium plus intensity, high density flavors and aromas of big juicy, meaty fruit in the mango and peach realm with creamy dank undertones and accents of citrus and pineapple balanced by a solid doughy sweet roll sweetness on a silky smooth, dense, wonderfully creamy medium-plus body with well restrained carbonation leading to creamy, grassy residuals forming bursts of lasting layers of the previously mentioned components, very enjoyable and balanced, leaning just slightly towards the bitter and rich hop complexities, stoked to have Uinta back in KC

12oz bottle Best By 05/29/15 consumed week of Kansas roll out, served at 45º into Orrefors Pulse Beer glass

Not a big fan of pale ales but this one as nice brewed. As most of the beers from this brewery it has a touch of strong malts.

Arcadia (61) - DeLand, Florida, USA - JAN 21, 2015
Bottle from ABC. Pours a murky brown with a medium off-white head. Lacing is pretty thin. Aromas are strong floral, pine, citrus. Taste follows suit, but some malt backbone comes through as well. Pretty sweet and somewhat sour on the way down; a pretty oily finish. Full bodied and quite enjoyable overall. Acquire.

Resin, citrus, floral. It starts with a pleasant semi sweet resin/grapefruit and ends with a bit heavy bitter floral.

Troupis (94) - - JAN 3, 2015
Bold hop flavors with a balanced fruit/bitter palate. Fresh taste throughout. This isn't an A+ because of personal preference but an A-/A depending on my desire for a heavy alcohol and heavy sitting DIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SotallyTober (72) - Channahon, Illinois, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Pours a murky copper with off white head. Nice lacing present. There’s a caramel, citrus, pine, and light fruit aroma. Medium body that was smooth and creamy on the palate. Fairly sweet start that had a mildly bitter finish that stuck around. Flavor’s of citrus, pine, resin, caramel, toffee, and fruits. Not bad overall.
