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.

Bought the Large Bottle at Whole Foods. The package was the reason I bought it on impulse at WFs. I could not resist the bottle with a cork, for a Double IPA. I was not disappointed and found it worthy of mention.

Appearance: it has a cloudy copper color, and for that is the only real disappointment for me in this beer. It's off white foam head does not set off the color of the beer. Sorry the visual was less then stellar. But the lacing was along the whole glass was great.

Smell: Citrus on the side of orange or tangerine, and alcohol come out.

Taste: Big citrusy hit up front, with a stung dry finish.
It hits your mouth, and lingers, a longing dry feel that makes you want to drink some more. This left my mouth dehydrated and I Got some water so I would not drink this great Double IPA to quickly.

It is big on alcohol as you get in some Barley Wines, but without the sweetness you can get in some high alcohol beers. But this beer has only a hint of malt sweetness.

MouthFeel:A dry and astringent bitterness.

Overall: I tasty member of the Double IPA list! I would be a repeat buyer, and would recommend it to others to try.

Serving type: bottle
