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.

raphael (1022) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 21, 2012
rich complex aroma—resin, alcohol, peach. Likewise a lot for the mouth to sort through, strong citrus bitterness buffered with a dark honey and black pepper. Persistent off white head on clear amber body. a surprising thickness in the mouth but good to have those aromas linger. sticky bitter finish.

(750ml bottle) Pours a clear orange body with a rocky cream head and descent lacing. Aroma of pineapple, caramel, passion fruit, and toffee. Flavor of caramel, toffee, orange, bread, pepper, and resin with a bitter finish.

22 oz. Christmas gift. First, I left this outside for several days. The idea being that it was cold enough to keep it appropriately chilled. However, over the week the sun actually came out in Seattle and so this bottle was sitting in direct sunlight for a non-trivial amount of time. Second, I had such a hard time pulling the cork out that I think I may have pulled a muscle in my neck. Tha said, this is still a fantastic beer. Smells like a barleywine and tastes like a magical hop elixir. I’d love to try a properly stored bottle to see if the ever so slightly funky palate disappears.

Thinker (62) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Dark brown color with a fantastic thick head that sticks around. Carmel malt smell and taste dominate this beer with a hint of floral hop but don’t get a lot of hop flavor.

reebtogi (4885) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 30, 2011
750ml corked bottle pours a golden orangeish color with a 3 finger white head that retains well and settles to some nice thick lacing on the glass. Aroma is loads of citrus and hints of caramel. Taste is big bold citrusy hop bitterness balanced nicely with a caramel malty sweetness and a slight alcohol burn in the finish. Medium body and adequate carbonation leave a nice feeling on the palate. A solid DIPA worthy of a tasting.

Sammy (9664) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 24, 2011
Hazy grapefruit coloured body, pleasant enough aroma. Average mouthfeel. A good hopping and malting, nicely balanced for the style so that my palate is not shredded. A lot of alcohol, is it necessary? Nice drinkability.
