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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A- cloudy (almost unfiltered), nice bone white head with great lacing, amber and copper hue.

S- Mango! Mango! Mango! Awesome nose! Pine and some grass too.

T- moderately bitter, amps up after swallowing and beyond. Excellent finish. Malty.

M- very very full. Drinks like a big boy. Not light at 9.5%, but feels like it should be 10 or above.

O- excellent! A keeper. Highly recommend.

Cheers all!

Had on draft at Founding Farmers DC on 5/10/14

A-Pours a slightly cloudy amber orange color with white quarter inch head ample lacing.

S-Has a floral and pine resin with a caramel/sweet fruit maltiness in the aroma.

T-Taste piney hops with some floral and sour citrus,a bit spicy in the midrange and raisin.caramel and sweet fruits in the back.

M-Mouthfeel has a slick and sticky palate,drier finish seemed well balanced with great carbonation.

O-Overall it’s a decent IPA maybe a little on the dry side but refreshing and very pleasant to drink.

12oz bottle

A) Pours with a finger thick head, then settles to a thin lacing at the edge of the glass.
Bronze in color. Transparent body.
S) Bold citrus with subtle peach and pine.
T) Orange, subtle grapefruit. Complementing buttery, caramel malts. Mellow linger hop bite in the finish.
M) Medium body. Fairly smooth. A bit syrupy.
O) A decent IPA. I'd drink another.
