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.

Cybercat (3801) - Georgia, USA - AUG 29, 2011
Pours a beautiful clear dark amber with a fairly thick and foamy off-white head that leaves some decent lacing. Aroma is not particularly strong but still invitingly hoppy and has a good undertone of grapefruit. Rich flavor is quite hoppy and has a nice bitter edge to it, as well as a sour citrus note and just a touch of honey sweetness. Full-bodied texture is smooth and tingly, leaving a nice hoppy finish.

DruncanVeasey (7424) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2011
750ml bottle split with Octo. High coppery pour capped with a subsiding, slightly yellowed foam. Tinned peach, Turkish delight aroma with good stewed, perfumed sweaty green hop notes in the mix: íladyís armpití it says on my tasting wheel. Slick and perfumed with the peach iced tea, throat sweet and rose notes I normally find cloying in US IPAs, but here supported with deeper Pimms with strawberry and mint notes, cinder toffee. Orange Smarties on the burp. Sweet, florid and honeyed with the alcohol well hidden. Enjoyable but I like a little more pith, spike and bitterness in my IPA.

rudolf (2342) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 15, 2011
Bottle, a gift from Maia. Thanks! Pours clear copper with a nice, slightly tan head, nice lacing. Nose is big caramel malt, piney hops, alcohol, a hint of fruity yeast character. Flavor is caramel malt, dark honey, berries, pine & grapefruit hop. The booze is quite apparent, but not overwhelming. This leans more towards barleywine than IIPA.

Tmoney99 (11623) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear copper color with an average rocky off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Heavy west coast hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy complex bitter flavor with a good bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Very good brew.

Beerman6686 (5090) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2011
This poured a cloudy bright orange color with a beige head. Aroma was lots of piney and resinous hops with some caramel malt there as well. Flavor was a bit on the sweet side, but not particularly malt, once again a good amount of resin and pine, with some alcohol there too. Decent.

SDalkoholic (2206) - Linda Vista, California, USA - AUG 6, 2011
Bottle from Henryís: Poured with a small delicate layer of foamed head which eventually breaks down leaving behind small patches on top a clear and golden liquid. In the aroma, there isnít a whole lot of aroma going on for my nose to pick up other than some minor notes of grassy European hops and grained barley malt. The drink is subtle with a crisp taste of sweet grainy malts that donít make any effort to mask a harsh flavor of alcohol. Thereís also a peculiar aftertaste in the finish that leaves a taste of cheap cologne or perfume which leads to the assumption that this isnít as good of an American made impy pilsner as some of the others Iíve had.

glennmastrange (2383) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - AUG 1, 2011
Bottle. Moderate roasted and caramel for the malt, flowers and pine for the hops, light to moderate soap for the yeast with notes of date, brown sugar, soured milk and solvent. Head is small, frothy, off-white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky amber/tan. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes slightly acidic and sour and moderately to heavily bitter. Palate is medium,oily with a lively carbonation and a moderately astringent finish. Other than the slight soured points to this beer it has nice aspects typical of a DIPA.

Bottle in the campground at BCTC. Pours a clear orange amber with a thin white head. Citrus, toast, malt. Sweet malt, toast and a good amount of bitterness. Hops, toast, malt, with a long grapefruit finish.

beerbastard (761) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUL 27, 2011
The beer is well made, I just doníl care that much for it. Malty nose with the hops in the background. Brown sugar like flavors with the bitterness lagging behind. Pineapple and tropical like taste. Dry finish. Too, sweet for me. I prefer more hop in the balance.
