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.

Zymurgeist2 (1624) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Sweet, cloying aroma with the hops showing grapefruit, orange and earth. As it warms, the alcohol really comes out on the aroma. Almost chestnut like qualities in the color, with a deep orange/amber and off-white head that lingers. Malty sweetness dominates the palate with the hops breaking through at the end. A little overbalanced towards the malt. The booze is slightly hidden. Cloying with a semi-dry finish.

Bottle from a trade with Gription79. Pours hazy burnt orange color with off white head. Aromas of floral, citrus, and pine hops. Grapefruit and pine flavors with sweet caramel and some doughy yeast. Slight heat from the alcohol. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. Thanks Dallas.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAY 10, 2012
Bottle. Pours a bright orange color with a white foamy head. Nose is fresh fruity and dry hop notes with a light biscuit. Palate is thick and sticky. Flavors of fresh fruits, light honey and syrup with a malty biscuit backbone that balances well. High alcohol is hidden quite nicely.

JorisPPattyn (9050) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2012
Draught. Arbitrary score 4/5 for Appearance, as nighttime conditions prevented correct assessment. Hoppy and a spicy nose, displaying a mix of thyme and lavender, however fleetingly, mixed with mandarine. Hard orangepeel flavour, again a tad spicy (lavender?), hopoils. Very oily, also in the feel, bit burning sensation. Very hopoily IIPA.

hayduke (4435) - Eureka, California, USA - MAY 2, 2012
From the State Liquor Store in Salt Lake City and brought back by my brother Rick on a recent trip. The 750 ml corked and caged bottle poured a medium orange color with with a very robust off-white head and attractive lacing rings. Nose of hops with pine, citrus, and flowers. Bold in body with a good sticky mouthfeel. There is a great deal of flavor with a good balance of hops and malts showing adequate bitterness for a DIPA. Alcohol is very well hidden, a plus for me. The finish is long, dry and bitter. A solid DIPA with no visible flaws. Very fresh tasting. Liked this a lot.

boFNjackson (4198) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 25, 2012
Bottle @ The BeerMongers... Poured amber, mostly red with a thick, off-white head. Nose had some strong, peppery spiced hops. Big time bitterness, faint traces of malt balance. Heavy on the earthy, pungent, pine-like, grassy, resinous hops. Black pepper spice, mild dankness, and a drying finish.

pinkzambia (1802) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 23, 2012
Tap - Brewforia: Sweet hoppy aroma with a tan ring head. Hoppy flavors, toasty notes, green . . . pretty nice. Thick body with a prolonged finish. You can feel the alcohol on this one!

Thechasm442 (611) - Manhattan, Illinois, USA - APR 10, 2012
750 ml bottle poured in a duvel tulip. Clear orange amber with a thick white head that tapers down to a half inch with sticky lacing. Aroma is pineapple, toffee, caramel and orange. Taste is pine resin, grapefruit, toffee, and some sweetness. Mouthfeel is on the syrupy side and the beer is well balanced with a taste that lingers. Pretty good.

MadRobin (2658) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - APR 9, 2012
Sample poured from bottle at Encinitas Ale House in Encinitas, CA. Clear, reddish, copper with decent head and trivial lacing. Big caramel malt aroma with light, spicy hops, and a definite alcohol presence. Taste of sweet caramel and biscuit malt quickly followed by strongly bitter citrus and floral hops. Alcohol noticeable in the finish. Medium to full body with average carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
