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.

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.

The pour is a clear, orangey-amber color with a full, eggshell-colored, pillowy, fluffy head which takes some time but is mostly diminishing but does leave thick lace. The nose is pleasant with lots of ruby red grapefruit, floral, light pine, light caramel, maybe even just a bit of tropical fruit; not overly complex but very nice. The flavor is similar with ruby red grapefruit and pineapple, light floral, and a resinous bitterness overpower some caramel and honeyed dark breads. The palate is medium to full, soft to lively, and creamy and oily. The finish is fairly short for an IIPA with lots of similar grapefruit notes, spicy resinous notes, and just a bit lingering tropical notes. A very nice and balanced IIPA with the grapefruit notes adding to the sweet notes, but it does lack depth, the bitterness is short-lived, and the finish is lacking. All things considered, the beer was nice, just not one of the better examples of the style.

Clear copper. Frothy off white head. Aroma is loaded with juicy fruits. Clementines come to mind. An assertive resinous character lurks in the background. Flavor is bitter and hoppy but restrained for the style. Medium attenuated feel in the mouth. Pretty nice stuff. A bit too much alcohol flavor is the only real misstep to me.

750mL caged cork. Poured into goblet. A deep copper with substantial, pillowy head. Heavy lacing. Looks good. Looks tasty. Pine and grapefruit. Resinous. Some alcohol and sugary-type sweetness. Heavyish mouth. Not as sweet as I was expecting. From the aroma was thinking maybe like a Squall or Unearthly but it’s drier and finishes a little bitter though with some stickiness. I like it a lot. Will be a good option and is on par with other big, large format DIPAs.

Bottle picked up at Stateline... Nice orange color, big head. Nice hoppy aroma with some bready malts. Taste is a well balanced DIPA... Bready malt notes. Hoppy, spicey, dry... Light texture, really easy to drink. No trace of the 9.5 percent. Nice DIPA

750 ml. bottle. Bottled on 07/12/10. Pours a medium, light beige head, over a clear amber (SRM 8) body....nose is pine, grapefruit, light floral honey.....taste is heavy sweet malts to start, then pine, grapefruit, pineapple arrive, finishes with a medium resin bitterness....mouth feel is medium, alcohol well hidden, carbonation high. This is young, and needs more time to get itself balanced. Then it will be delicious. The hops have have be handled with a deft hand, and the beer is much more subtle than many others in this style. This is a monument to hop aromas and flavors not hop bitterness. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7
