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.

RedSox2004 (1139) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Pours a deep reddish brown/mahogany with a thick tan head that dissipated to a solid film and left nice lacing. Pine hops were the strongest aroma with roasted malts clearly present. Big piney hops bitterness with a strong maltiness that lingered in the background. Medium body, light carbonation, smooth creamy mouthfeel, and a lingering caramel sweetness.

3fourths (7803) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2014
Pine, grapefruit, melon, bubble gum hops and caramelized red malt. Fiery alcohol, cloying sweetness, brutish bitterness. Medium-full body, rich mouth feel, soft carbonation. Sawdust / pine sap finishing notes.

Spab (2143) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2014
750 ml bottle from Premier Gourmet. Pours a lightly hazed orange/amber with dense eggshell-coloured head. Aroma is earthy, modestly catty and citrusy with caramel maltiness. Flavour has dank hoppiness with notes of resin and citrus, and a strong malt backbone. Moderate bitterness in finish. Pretty big bodied. Low-medium carbonation. Nice.

tugboat_801 (7) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - APR 18, 2014 does not count
Good double IPA. Nice mouth feel. Not overbearing but wouldn’t want more than a pint or two.

Bule (579) - California, USA - APR 18, 2014
12oz bottle pours an amber color without much head. Broad strong hoppy bitterness. Easy going.

r464 (1789) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2014
A strong hoppy aroma coupled with a dry hops flavor. Full and a little strong, leaning to the dry side. Hints of grapefruit.

Golden orange pour, good head and lacing. Nice hoppy head. Finishes bitter and boozy. On tap at DC Beer Festival.

ACHops (599) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 14, 2014
On tap @ Chuck’s 85th. Pours clear bright reddish copper with very thin white head. Aroma is lightly sweet caramel malt and earthy oaky slightly floral hops. Taste is heavy rich caramel malt with mildly bitter hops on the back; earthy notes of pine and grapefruit jump out. Nice rich flavor overall, a little malt-driven for my tastes.

poisoneddwarf (1624) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - APR 13, 2014
12 oz bottle, thanks brenn79! Aroma is fantastic for style, with pineapple, mango, cat pee, resin, garlic--very strong and unique, full of character. Pours clear copper with a large long-sustaining cream-colored head; leaves curtains of lace. Taste is nice, but it doesn’t live up to the aroma. Decent, overall.

Damico (2356) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2014
Pours clear amber with an orange his and decent beige head. Aroma brings dank juicy sweet hops, suggestion of citrus. Flavor is sweet for sure, but balanced with pungent hops, orange and some zest, and and a bit of a dry ending.

psabotka (39) - - APR 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark orange with a fingers worth of frothy yellow head. Big pine and citrus nose, decent bitter hop bite. Caramel and earthy malt balances this out nicely but leaves enough lingering bitterness. Medium bodies mouthfeel. Very solid DIPA ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
