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.

Westmeister (1839) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 14, 2011
750ml Bottle. Pours an amberish orange with a frothy white head that leaves sticky lacing throughout. Smell of sweet hops with floral and citrus notes. The taste is initially bitter then sweet then the bitterness comes back. There is maybe just a tad too much bitterness that is not being offset. Nonetheless a very good IIPA. Now to cherish the rest of the bottle by my lonesome.

LtDan (1796) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - MAY 14, 2011
Appearance: Pours a vibrant amber with a fluffy soapy white head that leaves behind a gang of lace.

Aroma: Candied grapefruit, pepper and resinous pine.

Taste: Big bitter hops, crystal malt, alcohol and toffee.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, rough, modest carbonation.

Overall: Not sure if this is a big west coast Barleywine or DIPA, but its big, hoppy, bold, not too sweet. The thing is, it’s way to hot(alcohol) to enjoy today, and would do much better in a month or 3.

BeerCast_Rich (1894) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 9, 2011
[750ml bottle, courtesy of Bullit] Pours an inviting clear amber, with a pillowy white head. Enormous passion fruit aromas. Huge tropical fruit nose. Sweet, slightly bitter hop finish, but mostly sweet on the palate from the malts. Standard DIPA flavours, but all very good. May get a bit cloying after a while, but would probably be worth it [08052011]
