Availability: Year-round

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.

3.78/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Whipped up head with more craters than dimples, easily over three fingers during the initial pour, loosely knit enough to settle down into an even thick coating across the surface, the lacing is ultra-sticky and remains in full sheets rather than thinner streaks. The liquid is a noticeably dark copper to amber color, stays transparent this notwithstanding, only the tiniest smattering of bubbles visible. The nose is thick and pungent, even if not the longest lasting, coconut custard, pine sap, candied orange peels, floral musk as well as sharper peppery and grassy notes, curiously the apricot, peach, pineapple fruit seems to get lost in the mix while in no way weak, ends with an earthy and close to peaty flourish. Full-bodied, verges on a foamy attack, only the herbal bite and overall bitterness slices away the foam to prevent suffocation by down pillow. The pepperiness takes it up a notch, more pith in the lemon to grapefruit citrus. By the mid-palate vanilla, coconut and caramel accents salve some wounds. Gets a little creamier as it opens into the apricot, peach, nectarine, fig fruits. Not very biscuity, some darker grains present. Mouth texture is sticky and resinous. Not aggressive per se, however, nothing to just pop and pour without some prep work first.

4.13/5  rDev +9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

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!
