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.

DoublEE (783) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - JAN 14, 2013
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.

From a can Pours a hazy copper color with huge head. Aroma is fruity grapefruit and tangerines and pine hops. Taste follows the aroma with a amazing mouth feel and malt backbone. This beer is very good! And it comes in a can ;)

BeerRenter76 (303) - Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2015
Appearance is a dark copper with half a finger of head. The head dissipates quickly but leaves some lacing behind on the glass. The nose is both piney and hoppy. The upfront flavor is a solid blend of malt and hops. The finish is not nearly as hoppy as top flight IPAs, but this still remains a solid effort. There is a touch of alcohol on the finish as well, but it is not too bad.

thegreenrooster (3566) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 18, 2015
Pour is a dark red with a small white head. Aroma is caramel sweetness with citrus bitterness. Flavor is a decent hop but then that sweet caramel malt takes over. Finish is malt sweetness with a touch of bitterness. Another one of these double IPA’s where the malt far outpowers the hops. Probably better fresh but I’m rating the bottle I was given.

degbert (1403) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Bottle. Pours a dark gold-orange with a high, mixed-grain, cream-colored head. The nose -- which is a little suppressed by the copious foam -- is lime, floral, yeast, and fresh bread. Intensely bitter on the front of the tongue, with white grapefruit and rosemary notes; it’s somewhat hot on the back of the tongue and the throat, and there’s just enough caramel malt to keep it from being out of whack. Very dry finish. Quite intense.

Mxyzlpltk (7) - WeSt palm beach, Florida, USA - JUN 29, 2015 does not count
Bottle. Not much to add to what has been said. Aroma is citrus with grapefruit most obvious, pine resin, grass, toffee. Good retention with off white lacing. Slightly hazy deep gold color. Nice Big bitter front with fairly aggressive malt that give a nice sweetness. Mid range palate average carbonation. Overall I enjoy this one.
