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.

Voodoo (531) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2016
Pours a honey gold with a slight white head.....aroma is pine, fruit, hop oil.....taste is thick, dirt, earthy, heavily bittered in the middle, tails off into dankness with an aftertaste of wood branches...different but not necessarily better.

cheap (5112) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2016
I like the shape of these bottles, they pour nicely. Brownish orange sparkling hazy looking stuff. Rather neutral aroma on a slightly stuffy nose. Taste is big giagantica thick bitter nasty rotoller. Warming greasy alky blast all round. Forget about anything but the taste of this for the next 5 minutes. Throws you on your back just when you figger out yer gittin a half nelson, heheh. One rude ass beer mahfah. Not impressed, simply over the top, down the hatch and over teh side of the table.

Where: Old Line Fine Wine Spirits & Bistro. How: 12 ounce can. Appearance: Clean orange amber body with 1-2 finger khaki head. Aroma: floral and bright citrus smell. Taste: very malt forward and syrupy, pine and resin up front then lots of sweet malt notes, finishes with a slightly grapefruit forward bitterness. Palate: Medium, dry, semi-citrus peel finish. Overall: Pretty good all around.

Bulk_Carrier (3411) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - MAR 26, 2016
This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a semi-dark burnt orange to brown color with a one finger white foamy head that quickly dissipated. Messy light lacing all over the place. The smell starts off with a sharp citrus to piney hops moving into subtle crisp spicy tones over a caramel malt backbone. Nicely balanced. The taste took in all of those flavors. Caramel malt seemed a bit more pronounced. Semi-dry sticky citrus / piney to sticky caramel malt aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fairly decent sipping quality about it. Carbonation runs fairly smooth. Malts and spices balance to hit my tongue. Overall, this one seemed to be very well balanced. I’d have again.

Amber color with tan head. Aroma is resinous hops, cough syrup. Taste is resinous hoppy, toasty malt body. Allright, but it has some flavours I’m not fond of.
