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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured a dark golden orange from a 12-oz bottle with a healthy 2-finger, white head which dissipated quickly to a coating. Lacing was ample and lasting. Nose was pine, citrus and some floral notes. Taste was malty, biscuity with some citrus (pineapple, mango) and caramel. Aftertaste was dominated by resiny, woody bitterness. Carbonation wasn’t intense nor was there any overpowering stickiness. Some alcohol warming present but not overwhelming. I wouldn’t avoid this but won’t go searching either.

Very strong hop flavor masks any hint of the alcohol content. Subtle citrus tones with a caramel backbone that lingers a bit. Drank it straight from the bottle as I was without a good glass to pour it into so I can't really comment on the color or appearance.

12oz bottle into a tulip
Best before: 7/21/14

A: Pours a hazy, nearly opaque, copper color wth 1.5 fingers width of light tan head. Head dissipates down at a moderate rate and leaves tons of lacing.

S: Citrus, lots of malt, candied sugar like sweetness, subtle pine.

T: Piney, soapy hops, citrus rind. Big hop presence. Malt takes a backseat but provides a nice backbone to this beer. Tasty.

M/D: Full bodied, carbonation on the heavier side, ABV is very well masked, drinkability is average.

O: Good, not great. I would drink this again. Certainly worth a try.

S: predominantly dank pine, but caramel malt and a little grapefruit and pineapple in the background;

T: follows the nose; alcohol comes forward mid-palate; mildly bitter finish with a little spiciness that stays with your tongue and gums;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: nothing exceptional, but very enjoyable;

Pours a red amber that's a bit hazy, minimal white head but it sticks around
Sweet caramel malt mixes with citrus grapefruit and light pine
Tastes follows nose with initial sip then leads to a building bitter showing some sweetness then returns the bitter mixing back w the sweet. You sense the alcohol. For how bitter it is the sweetness is equally strong
Mouthfeel is dry, medium
Overall a fair double ipa, but not quite up there
