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.

Nice strong 1 inch thick head of fine bubbles that recedes slowly. A plethora of citrusy hops, caramel malts, pine sap and some dry leaves. Color is a very nice dark copper and is crystal clear. Moderate bitterness in the flavor with lots of caramel, dry tea leaves, brown sugar, roasted grains and some oranges. Noticable alcohol presence but it does not detract from the flavor. Finishes hoppy and dry with some lingering roasted grains and tea leaves. A pretty good IIPA.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 5, 2011
Bottle, sampled at SBWF. Pours out in a shady amber colour with a small white head. Clean yet fresh aroma of resin, pine and tangerine with hints of caramel. Full-bodied IIpa with notes of resin, flowers, honey and....no expected citric hop blast. Quite sticky and bittersweet finish of resin, brown sugar and grass. Quite a a disappointment after their other other (darker) offerings Iíve sampled.

Nikiel (875) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 4, 2011
Pours a deep gold with semi-fine foam. Smells sweet with hints of vanilla, peaches and cream. Tastes very mild (canít be more than 25 IBUs...) with sweet citrusy hint and lightly bitter aftertaste that dies very quickly. Iím honestly not sure what to think about this, especially as an IIPA...

changeup45 (1716) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2011
Bottle from Sledutah. Pine, grapefruit, orange peel, caramel, toffee, and a little toasted grain scent comprise of the aroma, which was really quite pleasant. The pour is an amber color with a big thick sticky head that leaves coats of lacing on the glass. Sweet toffee and caramel malts combine with pine and tropical fruity hop flavors. The flavor pretty much follows the aroma but a little thin in the body. Decent bitterness. Slighly dry on top of the sweet malt. This isnít a massively hopped Double IPA by any means but itís not a sticky malt bomb either and there are enough hops to satisfy. Nothing out of place and this carries good drinkability for what it is. Overall this is really pretty solid stuff.

Pours light amber. Subtle malt and hops aroma. Taste is light malt followed immediately by fresh grapefruit hops bitterness that sticks around a long time. Very tasty DIPA - not as heavy on the malt as others and seemingly fresher tasting.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 21, 2011
HAzy gold pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is light marris otter and pine. Flavor follows suite with a subtle hint of grapefruit. Finish is dry.

GT2 (8283) - San Diego County, California, USA - JAN 20, 2011
750mL courtesy of Travlr. The pour is a glowing, hazy, light orange to yellow with not much head formation. Maybe rings of white bubbles. Extreme newspaper, cardboard, chalky palate. Around is not really doing too well: your typical stale DIPA though this one is taking top honors with sweat, feet, cheesy hops, rotting strawberries. Taste is just not going to save it from degraded hops, cheese, spicy alcohol, sickly sweetness. This is testament to the growing sentiment that DIPAs should be fresh draft only.

patrickfannon (1236) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2011
Bottle. 25.4 oz. Split with Vinnie. Pours a dank amber with a thick, lacy, frothy white head. Aroma of pine hops, grapefruit, soap suds, honeysuckle, melon, mango, tangerine, and malt. Fat, full, tight body with a tangy, honeysuckle sweet mouthfeel, Very sticky and juicy in the finish. Awesome double IPA.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 15, 2011
Amber pour, white head. Malty as hell, some citrus hops, grapefruit. Flavor is sweet and hoppy, a nice balance. Caramel, resin. Pretty good.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - JAN 10, 2011
Gummy lush aroma, sticky resin, some shortbread. Clear toffee, sustained white head. Caramel forward, chewy hops, toasted white bread, bit lacking in hops overall.
