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.

750ml corked bottle pours a golden orangeish color with a 3 finger white head that retains well and settles to some nice thick lacing on the glass. Aroma is loads of citrus and hints of caramel. Taste is big bold citrusy hop bitterness balanced nicely with a caramel malty sweetness and a slight alcohol burn in the finish. Medium body and adequate carbonation leave a nice feeling on the palate. A solid DIPA worthy of a tasting.

Sammy (9041) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 24, 2011
Hazy grapefruit coloured body, pleasant enough aroma. Average mouthfeel. A good hopping and malting, nicely balanced for the style so that my palate is not shredded. A lot of alcohol, is it necessary? Nice drinkability.

Bold dry hoppy malty and sweet. This was pretty darn tasty. Better than i thought it would be for sure.

Bottled. Pours orange with a sticky large white head. Big dank hop aroma with quite a bit of sweet fruitiness. Flavor is sweet caramel with a back of piney hop bitterness on an oily full body.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 5, 2011
From the bottle this poured a clear amber body with a tall, rocky off-white head. Lots of sticky lace. The aroma had some toffee-ish malt covered heavily by piney and floral hops. Same with the flavor, but tipping towards the hops and having a mid to strong bitterness. Pleasant lingering bitterness in the finish with a touch of sweet stickiness. I would call this a fairly decent IPA, but not a DIPA.

While not a lover of DIPAs I enjoy this one. Hoppy all over, nose, palate, super bitter finish. Mostly just bittering hops, not too complex in character. It’s not sugary like some DIPAs, a plus for me. good brew, give it a try.

This was from a late July bottling or sometime in the past. Regardless, its showing a bit of age but still held together well. Pours soft peach skin amber with two fingers of creamy off white head. Nose shows age, doing pretty well for being a 4 + month old DIPA. Super resinous/oily hop character, definitely some oxidation. Spicy alcohol and bready malt backbone. More like a strong ale at this point. Piney bitterness.
