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.

I enjoy this much more than Hop Nosh. For having a higher ABV and being a dIPA, this is much more balanced. Alcohol is hidden well. High carbonation, medium mouthfeel, earthy, grassy, but extremely drinkable. I don't typically like dIPAs but this is awesome.

About three months past the best before date. Hazy amber orange with a modest head but decent amount of lace. Smell is bready malts with little hop aroma. Taste is bready sweet with a large bitter dank hop taste. There is some pine grapefruit and orange.in the hop flavors. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with just enough carbonation. Finish is dry pine needles and a bit of soap on the back of the tongue. I think this beer was stored room temperature and has suffered for it. Next time i will try to get something fresh. I will say the alcohol was pretty well hidden.
