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.

A very good beer. Strong but sweet tadting malts with mild hops. Appealing appearance with a deep amber to brown coloring and white foamy head. A little light for a Double IPA but an excellent beer nonetheless.

RyanK (190) - Rhode Island, USA - AUG 17, 2014
12 oz bottle poured in shaker. Complexion is a dark orange with a small white head, quick to fizz away and stay as lacing. Smells mostly like caramel, some citrus hops. Medium bodied with a light amount of carbonation. Caramel malt flavor dominates, bitter piney hops come in and combine for a dry finish. Caramel flavor lingers, I’m not a fan of this flavor in beer stick to candy. Overall a good product for most drinkers.

pours a clear orange amber with a thin white head and some lacing. fresh pine, peach, honey and orange aroma. taste has notes of wax, honey, apricot, orange peel and coriander. there is a dusty, mineral quality as well. finish is decently long but the dustiness is magnified.

BelgianBeerGal (3138) - Panama City, Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2014
12oz bottle from the brewery. Clear bronze color with a medium white head of foamy bubbles. Nice hoppy aroma of pine, citrus and some rock candy. Nice flavor of piney hops, caramel malt and a good bitterness kick that doesn’t get harsh. Lingers a bit too. No hint of the 9.5 ABV. Very nice.

Fritz123 (963) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine in Boca Raton. Pours a deep orange-amber with a moderate head. Some sporadic lacing. Aroma is powerful hop profile with pine, resin, swamp, mangroves, and caramel malt base. The taste was very malty and sweet with the powerful bitter hops bring up the rear. Medium to full body and moderate carbonation. Finish is bitter. It was a little too thick though.

Not bad. Murky amber pour thin white head. Little homebrew like aroma, malt some hops. Citrus and caramel malt lots of malt. Moderate body light carbonation.

Deep, transparent bronze. Nice, 3" head just off white. Aroma of copper, booze and oak. Mild carbonation with a mild malty sweetness, rolling into bitterness. Not particularly complex. So-so overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
