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.

Damn good XXIPA. Burnt orange with 1-finger head and nice lacing. Big citrus nose with resiny full mouth/sticky taste/feeling.

750ml. bottle pours an almost clear copper/amber color with fluffy egshell white head that sticks around for a while. Aroma has lots of citrus hops and sweet malts. Mouthfeel is slick and a bit soapy, but with lively carbonation. Intitial taste is sweet, with a bitter and almost nutty finish, followed by the alcohol. Medium to full body. Not one of the greatest IIPAs out there, but I don’t regret trying it either.

fiulijn (19096) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 29, 2012
Corked bottle from Whole Foods Henderson, NV, bottled 02/13 12
Hazy amber color, medium sized creamy head. Strong aroma of hop resins, lemon cake, late stable impression. Good flavor of malt and toffee, with medium sweetness, moderate crystal malt, but forgiven because the hopping is extreme, with plenty of resins and fruits, oranges and more.
Excellent.

barn0216 (537) - California, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Bottle, slightly hazy caramel/amber color. Nice creamy head with retention. Floral and pine nose. Initial flavor is bitter before more nuance comes through: lemon, pine, caramel, touch of nuttiness. Finish is dry and bitter with a hint of the lemon hanging around.

hopheadsbrew (142) - Illinois, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Malt and fresh hops on the nose. Slight citrus and piney. Thick creamy head. Golden and clear. Malt on the start. Some caramel backbone with a long clean bitter finish. Slight sweetness on the palate with some earthy notes. Warming alcohol on the back end.

Lukaduke (3009) - Gray, Maine, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Pours a deep orange golden color witha couple finger eggshell head that settles and laces... aromas are spicy sweet malts mingling with fruity ripe hops. On the palate its a bit sticky sweet but balanced nicely with a medium body and nice tropical fruit pineapple, mango that lead into a more sweet pine driven finish with a good dose of bitterness to clean it up a bit.

radagast83 (7299) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Shared a 750ml bottle amongst friends. Poured a copper color with a medium sized mostly-white head. Aroma was soapy malts, with a bunch of floral notes. Nice hoppy character. Alcohol is pretty well masked.

hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 7, 2012
On tap at CBF. Clear orange coloured with a medium sized off-white head. Sweet and fruity aroma of caramel, hops, grass and pine needles. Sweet taste too.

bigrond (1499) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2012
This was a very average ipa. Not much character, nothing really exciting. Not overly hoppy yet still not balanced. Disappointing.

Quevillon (2897) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2012
750 ml bottle purchased at the Westmere Beverage Center (Albany, New York) on September 18, 2012. Honey copper, medium head. Aroma of grapefruit and pine hops, notes of coffee. Citrus hop flavor, notes of burnt coffee, bitter citrus. Unusual taste, but I loved it!
