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

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.

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

Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Clear golden orange with a finger of foamy off white head, no lacing.
S - Really odd aroma, lightly skunky, big toasted caramel malt, over-ripe fruit, grass.
T - This started out with a ton of diacetyl, then warped into a malty mess, hops are buried in malt sweetness.
M - Chewy, but exists your palate decently.
O - This is just gross, I had to stop about half way through and pour it out, idk if it was the batch or what, but the overwhelming amount of malt in this makes this "IPA" a flop.
