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 from a 75 ml bottle at a tasting. Bottled April 18, 2012. Dark honey pour. Slightly sweet spruce aromas. Caramel, toffee and bitter citrus notes. Quite a. Nice double ipa.

jmgreenuk (5804) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - SEP 10, 2012
Bottle courtesy of and shared with Iphonephan. Poured cloudy golden brown with a light frothy head and some fairly long lasting lace. Nice malty aroma. Warm bitter typical DIPA flavour but with a rather unusual aftertaste which I'm having trouble placing. Not my favourite DIPA, but nice to taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DrnkMcDermott (2903) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Taster at Standard Market. Certainly a big smack of hop in the nose and on the tongue, even in my little sample. A little estery for a big IPA, which gives it a fruity note playing off the hops. Bitterness seems only lightly piney and more juicy than citrusy. That may be because I was sampling wines before turning to Standard Market’s amazing tap list.

nuplastikk (5071) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 7, 2012
750ml bottle to the dome. Drank in September 2012, bottled in September 2011..ouch! EIther way seems to hold up quite well visually, nice steady beige head over a red-orange-brown body. Some mild seashore hops in the aroma. Not bad or off, but assumably a little more malty and less hoppy. Big bold malt tones and a resinous hoppiness bring it quite close to US Barleywine territory. Pretty solid offering, definitely respectable for holding up after a year.

Thisis12ptfont (992) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - SEP 5, 2012
Intense, bittering hops dominate the aroma with some alcohol in the back. Deep burgeondy/copper appearance with a thin foam. Massively complex flavors of harsh bittering hops upfront with an intense booze and molasses, caramel and bready malt. Intense alcohol sting on the finish. Overall, this is a beast of a beer with lots of piney, bitter hops and complex malts to support it. I’d give this an A+ rating. Fantastic.

iguanodon (98) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Pours copper with a tall tan head. Aroma is citrus and grass, spicy hops, a hint of malt. Taste citrusy hops with a bitter slightly boozy finish. Fine carbonation, nice mouth feel, just right for a DIPA.

fiveacestx (788) - Texas, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Bomber - clear copper color with a medium head and lacing. Has a fresh floral citrus nose and a nice orange hop citrus taste. The alcohol is evident but not overpowering. Has a medium mouthfeel and a crisp finish.

fletchfighters (1256) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 24, 2012
2/10/12 bottle date 750 ML bottle Orange copper color with a light brown head. Good body to the head and nice sticky lacing with this. Nose is mostly candied orange, grass and sweet malt. Taste is pretty much the same but more medicinal and grassy. Sweet body and harsh grassy bitterness with a lot of candied orange and grapefruit. Lighter bodied and pretty clean really. A bit faded but not bad. Not great at this point but has held up decently

Small sample from a bottle@SBWF2011. Deep amber colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is fruity and floral hops along with some mild floral and grassy notes. Flavour is sweet malts, fruity and floral along with some mild herbal notes. Pleasantly balanced.

AWISLguy (1762) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 19, 2012
750ml bottle from Cardinal in Niles. Pours an unclear orange with a long lasting orangey-white head. Nice drops of lacing as I work through the glass. Aroma has fresh fruit, overripe citrus, pine and resin. Taste is of sugary sweet oranges, pine, sticky resin and bitter grapefruit. Heavy simcoe, I would wager, as well as quite a bit of alcohol presence. Syrupy. Strong. Finishes bittersweet and sticky, getting sweeter as I get down through the bottle. Interesting IIPA.
