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.

glennmastrange (2220) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - AUG 1, 2011
Bottle. Moderate roasted and caramel for the malt, flowers and pine for the hops, light to moderate soap for the yeast with notes of date, brown sugar, soured milk and solvent. Head is small, frothy, off-white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky amber/tan. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes slightly acidic and sour and moderately to heavily bitter. Palate is medium,oily with a lively carbonation and a moderately astringent finish. Other than the slight soured points to this beer it has nice aspects typical of a DIPA.

beerbastard (673) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUL 27, 2011
The beer is well made, I just don’l care that much for it. Malty nose with the hops in the background. Brown sugar like flavors with the bitterness lagging behind. Pineapple and tropical like taste. Dry finish. Too, sweet for me. I prefer more hop in the balance.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2013 750 ml bottle shared by Dan- I think. Thanks! Pours a clear amber color with a small bone white head. Aroma of caramel malts, floral hops, toast, wood, and a good deal of citrus and tropical fruits. Flavor of tea, leafy hops, citrus, earth, caramel malts, more tropical fruits, and just a hint of soap and minerals on the finish. Would have been nicer without those. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a fruity mouthfeel.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 7, 2011
The Dan Journal #485. Tasted 6/28/11. 750ml cork and cage bottle. Filtered with a honey amber hue. Finger width of lacing, bone white head. There’s a lot of citrus fruit in the olfactory. The typical grapefruit, but also lemon, apricot, apples, pears and honey. Super nose! Full bodied with a candy sweet, sticky, fruity palate. It hits the sweet, tart, tangy and bitter aspects with a good dose of alcohol, to boot. Good body and hoppy flavors with a sticky finish. Solid!

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 6, 2011
Bottle from Sun Devil Liquors in Mesa AZ. Pours a murky amber with a pale yellow beige head. Ale ester and faded hop aroma. Medium to full bodied with a nice earthy mouthfeel, likely unfiltered. Rich caramel and toffee malt backbone, with some faded hop bitterness. Probably past it’s prime, but comes across as a cross between a IIPA and a light barleywine.

nearbeer (3611) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 3, 2011
750 ml. Copper with a lasting spittle of foam. Luscious aromas of pineapple, molasses, praline, resin, citrus, and tea leaf. Medium body is oily smooth and has some alcohol burn. Flavor has same components as the nose, but the resin, tea leaf, and woody hop notes take the upper hand on the sweetness. Minty, herbal, and alcoholic finish detracts a bit; but still a great brew.
