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.

Appearance is a dark copper with half a finger of head. The head dissipates quickly but leaves some lacing behind on the glass. The nose is both piney and hoppy. The upfront flavor is a solid blend of malt and hops. The finish is not nearly as hoppy as top flight IPAs, but this still remains a solid effort. There is a touch of alcohol on the finish as well, but it is not too bad.

Pour is a dark red with a small white head. Aroma is caramel sweetness with citrus bitterness. Flavor is a decent hop but then that sweet caramel malt takes over. Finish is malt sweetness with a touch of bitterness. Another one of these double IPA’s where the malt far outpowers the hops. Probably better fresh but I’m rating the bottle I was given.

degbert (1375) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Bottle. Pours a dark gold-orange with a high, mixed-grain, cream-colored head. The nose -- which is a little suppressed by the copious foam -- is lime, floral, yeast, and fresh bread. Intensely bitter on the front of the tongue, with white grapefruit and rosemary notes; it’s somewhat hot on the back of the tongue and the throat, and there’s just enough caramel malt to keep it from being out of whack. Very dry finish. Quite intense.

Mxyzlpltk (7) - WeSt palm beach, Florida, USA - JUN 29, 2015 does not count
Bottle. Not much to add to what has been said. Aroma is citrus with grapefruit most obvious, pine resin, grass, toffee. Good retention with off white lacing. Slightly hazy deep gold color. Nice Big bitter front with fairly aggressive malt that give a nice sweetness. Mid range palate average carbonation. Overall I enjoy this one.

Beerdedone (2964) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2015
Bottle. Pours amber orange with a lacy off-white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, fruit and had some floral notes. Flavor was malty and sticky with caramel, pine, citrus, grapefruit zest, tropical fruit and had a dry lingering bitter finish.

jason (1732) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Bottle. Aroma of lemons, citrus and melons. Cloudy orange body with minimal head. Flavor has a bitter orange, mango and sweet malt combo. Bitter finish but smooth.

12oz can from The Hop Yard in Raleigh. Reddish-orange hue, murky clarity with mostly lasting white fizzy head. Decent lacing. Strong grapefruit and orange hop aromas. Strong citrus grapefruit hop taste up front with more of the same finish. Fizzy on palate, good mouth feel.

ajnepple (3443) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - JUN 20, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2015 12 oz single bottle from Molly’s Spirits. Deep amber and light hazy appearance with a sticky white head. Aroma of melons, oranges, pine, resinous hops, sweet malts and light caramel/toffee. Similar flavor, big resinous hops, medium to heavy bitterness with a moderate malt sweetness in the middle. Medium to full body with a light syrupy feel and a lingering bitter finish. Not bad by any means, but I rarely find myself enjoying this style these days. Pairing: Hot Buttered Rum - Busted in Utah

12oz bottle to piny glass. Pours deep copper red. Big creamy head with big lacing. Aroma of big caramel malts, pine, earth and grapefruit. Taste is spice, pepper, caramel malts, pine, citrus peel, and dank. Finish is pine bitter, pepper and boozy heat. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy with good carb. Good DIPA!
