American Double / Imperial IPA |  9.50% ABV

Notes/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.

4.01/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle dated 7/4/13, into a Descutes Teku

A- It is a nice bright clear amber straw color. It liberated 2 inches of light beige head that faded slowly, but left little lacing.

S- The nose is light, not as strong as I would have thought. Definitely hops, resin, pine and citrus notes.

T - For me the taste is way better than the nose. Very nice hops, with light citrus highlights and a touch of caramel?

M- Easy to drink considering the ABV. Light with mild carbonation and the alcohol is there, but well balanced.

O - Really a very good DIPA. It has good a good hop profile and gives you that hop dose without being overbearing. The citrus is very nice. I tried this at 3 weeks, I had it at 10 days and should have tried it then, but I was in no way disappointed. Well done. I will definitely buy this again.

3.71/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A - Hazy gold, 1 1/2 fingers off white head. Good lacing.

S - Piney, spicy hops. Strong malt backbone. Light caramel.

T - Citrus hops, malty sweetness, spice, heavy bitterness. A little bit boozy.

M - Thick mouthfeel. Coats the palate. Medium carb,

O - A solid double IPA. A little on the heavy side at 9.5%. The alcohol is relatively well-hidden.
Enjoyable, but probably not something I'd seek out again.

3.79/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A little malt in the nose.
Taste: Strong hops up front. Very piney and resinous. Fairly well balanced with the malts without being too sweet.
Long lasting pine resin finish with a little sweetness.
Overall true to their regular 'Hop Notch" IPA, but with beefed up characteristics.
Bought as 4 pack for~$10; potential repeat buy.

3.36/5  rDev -10.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. bottle poured into a Burley Oak snifter

A: A mostly clear copper body with only a wisp of a head with a collar and ok lacing.

S: Interesting subdued citrus with a mainline of malts. Some decent fruity esters in there.

T: Odd taste with a lot of pine. Slightly sticky on the backend, with a weird kind of burn in the back of the throat (this must be from the beer because I had only had some pretzels, a homemade sour cream dip and this beer). Lots of alcohol in here, but not in the hot/burning sense, but mostly in the flavor and esters. You get a lot of it in the body. There is like a cinnamon or cardamom on the backend. Mostly malts and sweet at that.

M: Coarse and oily, but a pretty thin body overall.

O: I bought this because I thought it was a limited release and not a year round one. I realize my confusion came from the fact that it used to be in a 750.

3.31/5  rDev -12%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.25

A: Poured out a copper color with a yellowish tan head. Three plus fingers of head. Great retention and lacing that draped all the way down the sides.

S: Big time citrus and pineapple scents. Pine in the start that fades away. Also catching some biscuit and booze.

T: A lot of boozy pineapple and bitter hops. Hops are of the earthy variety. Grapefruit.

M: Medium body and carb. Slightly warming from the booziness. The bitterness is scathing.

O: Not great. After tastes of booze and bitterness are off putting. Otherwise, this had great potential.
