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.

This ale had an awesome aroma from the bottle, glass and cork! It poured well with a half inch head and clear amber color. But the flavor was a bit more astringent than I was expecting. Overall though a pretty good DIPA.

blafa (511) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2011
Sampled at Gothenburg Beer Festival 2011. September 2, 2011
Pours dark orange, slightly cloudy. Eggshell white head. Aromas of fresh hops, tropical fruits, nectarines, grass. Rich but a bit to sweet for my liking. Full bodied with a pretty sweet and sticky taste, some grass and hop flavours. It’s rather simple and not very interesting. Feels to me like your everyday generic IIPA in a very expensive bottle.

highibus (729) - Vail, Arizona, USA - SEP 3, 2011
Pours deep copper with thin white head. Nice aroma of dank hops. Finishes strong hops and it really is a good finish.

Cybercat (3341) - Georgia, USA - AUG 29, 2011
Pours a beautiful clear dark amber with a fairly thick and foamy off-white head that leaves some decent lacing. Aroma is not particularly strong but still invitingly hoppy and has a good undertone of grapefruit. Rich flavor is quite hoppy and has a nice bitter edge to it, as well as a sour citrus note and just a touch of honey sweetness. Full-bodied texture is smooth and tingly, leaving a nice hoppy finish.

DruncanVeasey (7203) - NUNEATON, Top 22, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2011
750ml bottle split with Octo. High coppery pour capped with a subsiding, slightly yellowed foam. Tinned peach, Turkish delight aroma with good stewed, perfumed sweaty green hop notes in the mix: ’lady’s armpit’ it says on my tasting wheel. Slick and perfumed with the peach iced tea, throat sweet and rose notes I normally find cloying in US IPAs, but here supported with deeper Pimms with strawberry and mint notes, cinder toffee. Orange Smarties on the burp. Sweet, florid and honeyed with the alcohol well hidden. Enjoyable but I like a little more pith, spike and bitterness in my IPA.

rudolf (2341) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 15, 2011
Bottle, a gift from Maia. Thanks! Pours clear copper with a nice, slightly tan head, nice lacing. Nose is big caramel malt, piney hops, alcohol, a hint of fruity yeast character. Flavor is caramel malt, dark honey, berries, pine & grapefruit hop. The booze is quite apparent, but not overwhelming. This leans more towards barleywine than IIPA.

Tmoney99 (10712) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear copper color with an average rocky off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Heavy west coast hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy complex bitter flavor with a good bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Very good brew.

Beerman6686 (4370) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2011
This poured a cloudy bright orange color with a beige head. Aroma was lots of piney and resinous hops with some caramel malt there as well. Flavor was a bit on the sweet side, but not particularly malt, once again a good amount of resin and pine, with some alcohol there too. Decent.
