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.

A smooth, cloudy deep amber color with a foamy head, and immediate scent of a toasty caramel with hints of fruity sweetness-- grapefruit, orange. The head recedes into a thin carbonation layer.

First sip is met with great toasty flavor, not overpowering, and finishes dry and delicious because of it. Mouthfeel is very malty, but well-balanced and overall flavor is above average when it comes to a DIPA. The dry finish is met with hints of grapefruit, orange peel, caramel, chocolate, and resin.

Overall, a visually-appealing, great-tasting musky DIPA that is easy to drink given its relatively high ABV. Malt and roasted characters, although delicious, dominate hop flavors, which is unique for DIPAs.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 2/27/2013. Pours slightly hazy deep orange copper color with a 2 finger dense and rocky cream colored head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of orange zest, grapefruit, orange rind, lemon zest, caramel, raisin, pine, floral, grass, toast, brown sugar, and floral/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with well balanced citrus/pine hops with caramel/toasted malts; and solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, orange zest, orange rind, lemon zest, caramel, raisin, pine resin, floral, grass, toast, brown sugar, and floral/toasted earthiness. Good amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, pine, caramel, toast, brown sugar, and floral/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice balance of citrus/pine hops with caramel/toasted malts; with a good malt/bitterness balance and minimal cloying flavors on the finish. Medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a slick and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very good DIPA style. Good balance and complexity of hop and malt flavors; and quite smooth to sip on. The age pretty much put it into a barelywine profile in the taste and aromas; but it was still a nicely enjoyable offering as it stands.

Bottled 12/17/12.

Pours a murky dark orange-brown with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. A foamy lattice of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, brown sugar, caramel, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and alcohol flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is obviously old but has still held up quite well and seems to have become something like a sweet American style barleywine at this point.
