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.

Persimmon colored body was clear and lively, with a three finger thick head. Extra props for the classy caged and corked presentation, with a little informative cardboard foldout tied around the neck. The aroma was rich with pine straw and grapefruit smells from the hops. The taste was citric and quite bitter. There was not a whole lot of malt backbone here, and the sweetness was mostly comprised of simple sugars. Pretty sticky on the palette, and a long aftertaste with a pepper like spiciness. Not a beer to make me go wow, but a solid detour indeed.

probstblueribbon (3062) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2014
12 oz bottle from BOTW (Rochester), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear deep amber with a full, tight, orange-tan head. Aroma: Quite sweet, richly malty, a bit savoury/brothy, big citrus with some resin/pine, dark toffee/treacle, a little berry-like fruitiness, some alcohol. Palate: Medium+ body, fairly full, fine, velvety carbonation, kinda syrupy/slick. Flav.: Richly malty with a savoury/brothy/dusty undertone, fairly full citrus and pine/resin, alcohol, black pepper, big stuff, quite sticky and sweet but also very hoppy; sweet with big bitterness and a long, malty, peppery, boozy finish.

Detour into the ditch. Jeebus, what a big beer!

good flavor. good maltiness to balance the hops. A little on the sweet side, but overall a solid double ipa

Didn't really care for this one; the pour had no head and looked kinda like the water after a paintbrush is washed in it. The alcohol overpowered the flavor a bit for me - taste was ok, just too boozy and not really my schtick. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

First review so please bare with me ;) Aroma: Malt steals the show. On the background, piney, fruity (apricot-citrux). App: amber with carbonation, white head. Taste: Good American double IPA but a little too much malty and syrup too much present, Nice bitter finish though. Palate: Thick. Overall: Great double IPA, happy that I drank it and would drink it again. Not he best double IPA I drank but far from the worst I drank.

Mep3222 (578) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Aroma of a bready maltiness with slight piney hops, but malt dominates. Taste is bready malt with a piney bitter finish. Palate is a bit thick and syrupy. Ok ipa, but not very balanced and much too malty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft: very nice double IPA. Lots of tropical fruits and citrus sit on top of a big bready malt backbone.... Nice and sticky hops. Loved it.

I wish I could describe the flavors and feel of what I didn’t like about this beer. I was expecting so much from the makers of hop nosh and was pretty bummed. Its not what I was expecting from the makers of hop nosh. They should have just doubled that recipe.
