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.

Zeeben (36) - Goffstown, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 27, 2013
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.

TEJA (2368) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2016
Fine white head. Solid golden color. Dominating hop aroma in large amounts that is a little bit too much. Large hop taste with loads of caramell and firm body and bitterness.

En bouche, malt caramelisé un peu âcre, marmelade, pamplemousse jaune, gazon humide. Finale âcre et terreuse. Texture liquoreuse et corps moyen. 2ipa dans la moyenne faible.

George999 (374) - Colorado, USA - AUG 12, 2016
From bottle, the pour is clear and light brown with a thin reddish head that thins but remains. The aroma is bright hoppy and citrus. The taste is bitter hoppy and floral and very well balanced with citrus.

Amber pour with off-white head. Good nose of citrus and grass. Flavor is nice grapefruit and bits of roasted malt. Nice crisp bitter finish.

Foxbush (1770) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 2, 2016
12 oz can from Total Wine and More The D/IPA poured a cloudy amber with an off white head. The ale did clear over time. Nice aroma was fruity with floral hops. The medium body ale was well balanced with some caramel malts and higher alcohol. Nice ale at the end of the work day with average carbonation. The bitterness is solid, but gentle enough not to throw the sip off-kilter.

WillRunForBeer (2247) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 21, 2016
12oz can from CBC. Best before 10/20/16. Pours copper brown with a big light beige head. Aroma is grass, floral, grapefruit. Flavor is caramel, a touch of molasses, grass and grapefruit. A bit malt heavy, but that’s not surprising at 9.5%.

ChadPolenz (1677) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2016
2015 BJCP Category: 22A Double IPA

AROMA: Sweet guava/passionfruit concentrate. Pine. Clean malty malty sweetness. 10/12

APPEARANCE: Burnt umber; body is dark but mostly clear (no sediment). Small, tan, foam. 2/3

FLAVOR: Intense maltiness right away. Caramel/honey flavors are prominent. A gentle dank bitterness in the background never really crests or bites and seems much less than the advertised 96 IBUs. Finishes with a juicy sensation plus some alcohol, which is nice. 15/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium+ body with fairly low CO2. Mouthfeel is noticeably thick, slightly syrupy texture. Alcohol imparts warmth, but is not hot. Lingering bitterness and slight malty cloying. 3/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: A fine DIPA with enjoyable flavors, but this is a borderline barleywine or strong ale considering how sweet it is. 7/10

TOTAL SCORE: 37/50

Nephilium (1680) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2016
Nice big pine aroma, pours a hazy amber with a white head. The flavor starts with a slight hint of tropical fruit, then layers in some caramel sweetness, then finishes with more tropical fruit and candied bitterness. Moderate body with a slightly slick mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very solid IIPA, especially at the price point.

Draft pour at collective, hop aroma, little boozy flavor, but still crisp and refreshing, nice balance of flavor hops and bite.

Voodoo (557) - 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.
