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.

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.

Big Game @ Sierra #1, on tap. Pours out a nice golden color, fluffy white head. Aromas aren’t as potent as I expected. but none the less a nice floral and pine citrus notes. Palate is decently balanced considering the low 74 IBU’s. Citrus finish is clean and the palate is smooth. Really decent.
