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.

Pours orange amber with an off white head. Piny hoppy aroma with some lighter citric notes. The flavor has resinous hoppy notes on top of sweet malts.

Arcadia (57) - DeLand, Florida, USA - JAN 21, 2015
Bottle from ABC. Pours a murky brown with a medium off-white head. Lacing is pretty thin. Aromas are strong floral, pine, citrus. Taste follows suit, but some malt backbone comes through as well. Pretty sweet and somewhat sour on the way down; a pretty oily finish. Full bodied and quite enjoyable overall. Acquire.

Resin, citrus, floral. It starts with a pleasant semi sweet resin/grapefruit and ends with a bit heavy bitter floral.

Troupis (80) - - JAN 3, 2015
Bold hop flavors with a balanced fruit/bitter palate. Fresh taste throughout. This isn't an A+ because of personal preference but an A-/A depending on my desire for a heavy alcohol and heavy sitting DIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SotallyTober (68) - Channahon, Illinois, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Pours a murky copper with off white head. Nice lacing present. There’s a caramel, citrus, pine, and light fruit aroma. Medium body that was smooth and creamy on the palate. Fairly sweet start that had a mildly bitter finish that stuck around. Flavor’s of citrus, pine, resin, caramel, toffee, and fruits. Not bad overall.

probstblueribbon (3106) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2014
12 oz bottle from BOTW (Rochester), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear deep amber with a full, tight, orange-tan head. Aroma: Quite sweet, richly malty, a bit savoury/brothy, big citrus with some resin/pine, dark toffee/treacle, a little berry-like fruitiness, some alcohol. Palate: Medium+ body, fairly full, fine, velvety carbonation, kinda syrupy/slick. Flav.: Richly malty with a savoury/brothy/dusty undertone, fairly full citrus and pine/resin, alcohol, black pepper, big stuff, quite sticky and sweet but also very hoppy; sweet with big bitterness and a long, malty, peppery, boozy finish.

Detour into the ditch. Jeebus, what a big beer!

good flavor. good maltiness to balance the hops. A little on the sweet side, but overall a solid double ipa

Didn't really care for this one; the pour had no head and looked kinda like the water after a paintbrush is washed in it. The alcohol overpowered the flavor a bit for me - taste was ok, just too boozy and not really my schtick. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
