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.

gyllenbock (4083) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2010
Bottle at SBWF 2010. Clear golden with a medium white head. Fruity hoppy aroma. The taste was also fruity with a nice bitterness. Quite sweet with a rather heavy body. Good stuff.

750 ml coriander caged bottle from Jonathan Ron Brielle. Pours a rusty orange body with a large frothy light beige head. Aroma is far fruitier then I was expecting. Tons of tropical fruit mangos, apricots, kiwi, citrus pulp, touch of carmalized sugar, fresh cereal, wet hops and a hint of alcohol. Medium to slightly lighter bodied with average to slightly strongest carbonation. A fair touch of bitterness and a hint of alcohol heat on the finish. Flavor isn’t as fruity as the aroma with notes of toast, grains, grapefruit and citrus rind. Interesting and worth the $7.50 price that I picked this one up for.

What a gorgeous hoppy fruity aroma. Nice orange color-full creamy head. The flavor is that of a solid DIPA, plenty of hops, a little creamy. this is an excellent beer.

notalush (4631) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 8, 2010
Clear, uber-filtered copper pour - this one sits somewhere on the line between double ipa and hoppy barleywine - quite sweet, with a decent amount of toffee and caramel flavors - hops are assertive and quite bitter, but thankfully not abrasive like in many stronger dipas - alcohol is present, but mostly just warming - a sort of minty, herbal finish - one-dimensional, but fairly drinkable for the style.

Ughsmash (7001) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 7, 2010
750mL bottle. Poured crystal-clear lighter orange with a short, dense cap of off-white head. The aroma picked up a sweet blend of honey, pale, and biscuity maltage topped by floral and pine hops plus peppery alcohol.. the boozage seemed like it was going to be rough. The flavor found nondescript pale malts, corn, and honey at the core.. moderate floral and pine bitterness around, along with a lot of rough booze.. sticky, ugly malts and alcohol on the finish. Medium-plus bodied with slow-rolling carbonation.. sticky and unpleasant in a lot of places.. didn’t much care for it.

Frovigalning (2692) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2011 Bottle at SBWF. It poured a clear golden liquid with a small white head. Sweet flavour with fruity hops. Pleasent DIPA but not extraordinare. Re-rated after Allt Om Öl Festivalen in Eskilstuna. A freash DIPA with lots of hops without overwhelming the drinker.

Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 4, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2010 Bottle shared at Septoberfest. The beer is an orange-amber color with a medium light beige head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Piney malt and caramel malt in the nose. Medium body with flavors of piney malt, citrus and sweet malt. The finish is hoppy with a piney aftertaste that has caramel undertones. Above average overall.

omhper (18944) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2010
Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Clear amber, brief head. Salty grapefruit aroma. Mid sweet with full body and clean mouthfeel. Big and bold, but one dimensional.

Courtesy of douglas88. Thanks Douglas for hooking us up with yet another tasty SLC/Utah brew. Pours clear deep gold with copper hues and off white head. The aroma is nice with spicy hops, floral hops, tangelo, grapefruit, apricots and pineapple as well as a bit of caramel and malt sweetness. The taste starts with spicy hops and then a modest wave of malt sweetness comes to the surface followed by floral hops, pineapple, tangelo and grapefruit citrus hoppiness. Into the finish the hoppy bitterness grows to pleasing levels. Nice but smooth and subtle for the style.
