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.

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.

DuffMan (6968) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 15, 2011
Big bottle shared with Parksy. Upon pulling the cork, the most amazing intense coniferous hop aroma poured forth. Mmmmmm! Clear burnt orange, pillowy white crown showing awesome retention and solid lace. Such a great aroma, now some citrus oil along with the pine. Quite a malty body, but with nice hoppy aromatics and bitterness. Mango skin, grapefruit, and of coursepine. Long bitterness in the finish. Slightly oily, full bodied. Fantastic.

SpringsLicker (3163) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Pours deep gold with a bit of hop haze under a sticky, mostly white head. {Powerful pineapple and mango hop aroma jumps out as soon as the cork is pulled. Big hoppy bitterness that is well balanced by a firm underlying sweet malt base. Excellent IIPA>

Westmeister (1804) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 14, 2011
750ml Bottle. Pours an amberish orange with a frothy white head that leaves sticky lacing throughout. Smell of sweet hops with floral and citrus notes. The taste is initially bitter then sweet then the bitterness comes back. There is maybe just a tad too much bitterness that is not being offset. Nonetheless a very good IIPA. Now to cherish the rest of the bottle by my lonesome.

LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - MAY 14, 2011
Appearance: Pours a vibrant amber with a fluffy soapy white head that leaves behind a gang of lace.

Aroma: Candied grapefruit, pepper and resinous pine.

Taste: Big bitter hops, crystal malt, alcohol and toffee.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, rough, modest carbonation.

Overall: Not sure if this is a big west coast Barleywine or DIPA, but its big, hoppy, bold, not too sweet. The thing is, it’s way to hot(alcohol) to enjoy today, and would do much better in a month or 3.

BeerCast_Rich (1891) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 9, 2011
[750ml bottle, courtesy of Bullit] Pours an inviting clear amber, with a pillowy white head. Enormous passion fruit aromas. Huge tropical fruit nose. Sweet, slightly bitter hop finish, but mostly sweet on the palate from the malts. Standard DIPA flavours, but all very good. May get a bit cloying after a while, but would probably be worth it [08052011]
