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.

Fruity but tons of bready malt on the nose. A nice thin line of head. A solid double slap to the face of hops. Highly carbonated. I like it, I think as it warms the tastes will improve. The alcohol pulls thru just a hare too much.

Big Texas Beer Fest. Light orange pour with a white head. Aroma is dirty, oranges, and light toast. Taste is bready grain, light fruit, and bitter.

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

Bottle. Pours cloudy amber with a small briefly lasting white creamy head that leaves good lacing. aroma of lemon, hay and caramel. Light to medium sweet and heavy bitter in a medium body. Fizzy mouthfeel, a bitterness that hits me in the back of my mouth and an bitter finish of average duration. Well balanced.

TChrome (1415) - Bedford, Texas, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Pours a nice copper color with a big off white fluffy head. Aromas of passion fruit, grapefruit and bread. Taste is initially very bitter and then finishes bitter. I personally continue to prefer single IPAs, but this is pretty good stuff.

Golden-burgundy red with a thick head. Smell is pretty subdued; grassy, some caramel/malty biscuit, candied fruit. Taste is sweet and a little boozy but mellows out quickly. Very foamy in the mouth. Long-lasting grapefruit-rind finish.

Clear light copper and amber coloured body with a one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of very rich and dank hops, resin, pineapples, grapefruit, pine and bunches of alcohol. Full-bodied; Strong rich pineapple and pine flavours at first with a lot of malt presence, some white grape flavours and a large sweetness of honey and syrup comes with the alcohol finish. Aftertaste is very nice and balanced with the hops leading the way, but fairly equal parts of malt, alcohol and sweetness, plus with some light complexity of tropical fruits and light herbs make this a very nice finish. Overall, a very good Imperial IPA with a ton of alcohol, but a very easy drinking beer in spite of the strength. Definitely worth trying if you like this style or even barley wines, since this is similar in texture and body to that. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Tyson’s Corner (Falls Church), Virginia on 27-March-2014 for US$2.99 sampled at home in Washington on 11-July-2014 in celebration of quitting my job!
