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.

VsXsV (2274) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2011
750 ml bottle at Sorbon. Hazy, amber liquid with small to medium off-white head. Hoppy aroma with notes of pine, grapefruit, hops and light caramel. Smells very nice. Dry taste with very little sweetness and medium bitterness. A bit lighter bitterness than average for the style. Medium bodied with OK (maybe a bit low) carbonation. OK DIPA for a good price.

bubbleflubber (1833) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 15, 2011
Pours a deep copper-amber into the glass, with a frothy head that reduces to soap and sudsy lace. The nose is of huge floral bouquets with mingling pine. The flavors are of deep grapefruity citrus, some malt backbone and deep bitters. The finish is of fresh pine needles (chewed, citrusy) and peppery bitters, intertwined with just a touch of alcohol. The mouthfeel is oily and the body is full. With a semi-chewy palate, this is a very nice DIPA offering, very substantive and well-balanced.

Bottle from Bacchanalia, Cambridge, 3rd June consumed 8th June 2011 Pours mid amber with white head. There is a significant hop burn at the back of the throat, this is heavy laden with hops. There is an initial sweetness but the hops kick in soon after. Soft in the mouth with big green juicy hops, big warmth from the alcohol. Good stuff. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.7

Draft at "Battle of the Brews", Allagash vs. Uinta at Scion in DC June 1st. Pours a nice copper color. Aroma is floral from hop. Taste is medium bitter, almost an imperial red in a way. I had this early in the night as my third beer, and it was my favorite of the 8 there...

Part of me wants to write DON’T BUY THIS BEER...because opening the bottle was such a frustrasting experience. The bottle has a champagne-like cork but it felt like the cork was held in place with suction. It took me a cork-screw and wiggling the cork back and forth to get it to come out. My overall rating will reflect some of this frustration...Onto the beer itself Aroma - Smells like BIG northwest Hops Appearance - A beautiful clear amber with nice head that didn’t disappear immediately. Taste - Not as smooth as I like my double IPAs; a little bitter and hoppy more like a regular IPA. Palate - Medium body, slight bitter finish Overall - A decent beer but not a good buy for a Double-IPA in my book. Add in the bottle problems and this is probably my lowest rated of this type of beer, one of my favorites too...

750 ml bottle. Dark gold pour, sticky whitehead. Grapefruit, piney, resinous hops, light tropical notes, and malt. A nice DIPA, not too sweet, but the alcohol is noticeable.
