This is a solid DIPA from a solid brewer than never seems to get to 4, but is consistently thoughtful, original, fresh, and enjoyable.
A: Deep amber, honey like, cloudy. Sticky white head but not much lace.
S: Caramel dominant, the most caramel beer I have tasted, in a good way, followed by citrus and pine. Then fruity, spicy tingly finish as in perhaps a barley wine
T: Follows smell. Malty caramel sweetness starts, then hops emerge, with grapefruit peels, orange pith, and pine resins. Finishes nicely with an almost wine-like, honey finish.
MF: Medium-full match the sweetness, and there's plenty of bitter tingle in the long pleasant finish leaves you in a great place.
Detour is a "detour" - not like other DIPA's more honey, more caramel, but yet plenty intense hops, results in a medicine, wine like beer, that I really ended up liking and want to share with friends. Intense. A sipper. Warming.

4.13/5 rDev +9%

Served in a snifter. Vintage bottle, dated 05/22/13.
Appearance: A slight hazy amber body, It's hazy because of the pour which was pretty rough. Head almost two finger's length with your usual white color. Looks beautiful.
Smell:Bland citrus and yeast scent that is more potent as the brew warms up. Good but not something to roll head over heels for.
Taste: Complex and bitter. Grapefruit feel, a little sour that might feel a touch sweet. This might also be because of the age of the beer. Regardless very good.
Mouth: Medium to full bodied after-taste and very sticking.
Overall: Very good brew, wish I could bought more of these when I had the chance. If you see it and you love IPAs I can promise it will not disappoint you. Salud!
