American Double / Imperial IPA |  9.50% ABV

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.

Preamble - This is a 5 across the board for me. It's a grail beer for me along with Stone's IPA.

Poor - Nice frothy poor developing a good three finger head. Color is a perfect clear amber and the lacing is sticky.

Nose - Tropical fruit.

Taste - Tropical fruit, Very well balanced, nice sweet malt backbone; with a delicious cascade/centennial citrus/tropical fruit hop taste. For the ABV this is an awesome DIPA. It tastes like a 7 abv beer. The ethanol is completely masked and the mouthfeel is light; not heavy or syrupy. This isn't an overboard DIPA.

An awesome beer.

This is one of the best beers of this style that I’ve ever had and, coincidently, from this brewery, another earth shaking beer. Poured with a large, foamy, frothy, cream colored head, that very slowly settles down, and some lace. Color is a crystal clear dark amber. Aroma is hops, malt, caramel, spice, yeast. Flavor is an incredibley well balance of bitter, sweet, & tang. Body is spot on: mouth filling and perfect carbonation. Finish is like flavor and extremely drinkable
