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.

On bottle at Öl&Whiskymässan. Pours amber with low head. Aromas of citrusy fruits and malts. Lovely sweet and round palate with a bitterness all the way. Not to bitter ending which suits me. Very good double IPA.

Persimmon colored body was clear and lively, with a three finger thick head. Extra props for the classy caged and corked presentation, with a little informative cardboard foldout tied around the neck. The aroma was rich with pine straw and grapefruit smells from the hops. The taste was citric and quite bitter. There was not a whole lot of malt backbone here, and the sweetness was mostly comprised of simple sugars. Pretty sticky on the palette, and a long aftertaste with a pepper like spiciness. Not a beer to make me go wow, but a solid detour indeed.

kramer (5228) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2011
25 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark copper body with a small one finger fizzy white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is a little hefty on the malt for my tastes, but there is still a decent amount of grapefruit and resiny hoppiness as well. The flavor is much the same, though there’s a lot mote bitterness from the hops than I was expecting. Very resiny and thick, the hops almost stick to your teeth. Thick caramel malt base provides a sturdy backbone for all those hops. The alcohol is fairly well hidden given the strength, but there’s a bit of warmth to the finish. Thick and pretty full bodied with moderate fizzy carbonation. Not bad, but it wouldn’t exactly be a beer I’d seek out for a second go around.

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 (743) - 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 (3680) - 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.
