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.

Poured into a snifter. 5.0 A: Clear light amber color. First pour yielded a sizeable head. A couple pours later I got three fingers of creamy off-white head. Retention is very good and plenty of glass covering lacing is left. 4.0 S: This is clearly a hoppy barleywine type DIPA. Big fruitiness including peach, plum, raisins, and figs. Tons of caramel and some toffee as well. Booze is detectable, but held in check. Hops are mainly flowery and herbal, but there is some citrus as well. Good blend of rich malts and hops. 4.0 T: This tastes a lot like DFH’s 90 Minute. Rich caramel with some toffee, big fruitiness featuring those listed in the nose and emphasising plum and figs. Moderate bitterness, but on the higher end of the spectrum. Big neutral malt sweetness, but not too sweet. Lightly boozy. 4.0 M: Heavier medium to heavy body. Good moderate carbonation. Big creaminess which is a must for this approach to a DIPA. 4.0 D: I wish I had looked at the reviews before opening this. This beer is a two man job. Anyway, it’s a solid malty DIPA. Good balance between malts and hops and not too boozy. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 06-29-2012 20:55:48

A very good beer. Strong but sweet tadting malts with mild hops. Appealing appearance with a deep amber to brown coloring and white foamy head. A little light for a Double IPA but an excellent beer nonetheless.

750ml. Rich copper color. Decent bitterness but should be higher for an IIPA in my opinion. A tad sweet and malty but very drinkable nonetheless.

Capa (2237) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Deep amber with a lasting tan head. Aroma is citrus hops, sweet malts, dark fruits, light booze. Medium bodied. Flavor has nice hops, sweet malts, caramel, fruit, and alight booze note. Solid DIPA. Too sweet for me but solid none the less.

Gription79 (2434) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUN 15, 2012
Poured from a 750 ml bottle. This is way to sweet. Truck loads of caramel. Very little hop character. This is a sweet malty beer, not a lot of bitterness.

boxofrane (2341) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2012 Draft. Pours copper with very little head and minor lacing. Aroma is mildly astringent with some caramel malt on the finish. Taste is on the sweet side for an ipa but not a bad brew by any means. I’m a fan of Uinta but I think the Hop Notch is a bit better than this one.

BucannonXC5 (1032) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Poured from a tap into a tulip at Sublime Ale House in San Marcos, Calif., on May 27, 2012. Less than a finger of head once I got it. Color was honey amber, a bit hazy. Caramel white bubbly lacing on the top that had great retention throughout the pour. Smelled fresh citrus hops up front, mainly lemon and tangerine. Also some caramel notes and a bit like Sprite. Reminded me of a Rogue Dead Guy Ale a bit. Got citrus hops - tangerine and apricot. Tasted a bit like the Rogue Dead Guy Ale that I just mentioned. Caramel and orange peel as well. Medium body. Creamy texture. Average-to-above average carbonation. Long, smooth finish. An OK beer overall, but I was hoping for a bit more after really enjoying their Hop Notch IPA awhile back.

Pours a nice ruby rust orange with a healthy cream head with outstanding spiderweb lacing. Nose is pineapple and citrus hops with a touch of pine. Taste is nice hoppy pineapple with a touch of caramel and pinecone with a dry finish. Refreshing.
