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.

Bought this during a trip to Utah. Purchased a single 12 oz bottle from a beer/liquor/wine store in Logan.

A - Poured into a hotel tumbler, 2 actually (one full, one half full). 1/2 finger head on the full glass, dissipated quickly. Enough carbonation to keep the top of the beer covered in a light layer of foam. Good lacing. Force-carbed and very clear.

S - For a double IPA there was surprisingly little aroma. The malt definitely does not let the hops shine.

T - Good mix of dank hops, citrus hops, and caramel malt. Should it be good mix for a double IPA? I think the hops should dominate. I taste this beer mostly on the back and sides of my tongue after swallowing. There isn't a lot of upfront punch from the hops.

M - For a 9.5% ABV beer, the mouthfeel is surprisingly thin. That being said, the corners of my mouth are sticking together so the the FG must be kind of high.

I would buy this again.
