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.

joeneugs (3416) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 25, 2011
Tasted 1 month from the bottling date. It pours dark orange with an orange head. The aroma is caramel, pine, some minor citrus and tropical fruits and brown sugar. The flavor is nice with a solid malt base and potent, piney, sweet and resinous hop flavor and finish. Very good if a bit heavy on the caramel malts.

BrotherGrendel (787) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 15, 2011
Bright orange, brilliant clarity, big thick head. Nose is danky pine resin and alcohol heat. Flavor is big grainy malts with a biting bitter hop presence and resiny citrus flavors. Medium carbonation and thick texture. Overall, a very smooth and flavorful DIPA with a malty presence to match the big hops.
