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.

Bottled On 04/10/13

A: Pours a copper color with a towering 3 fingers of head that eventually settles down to a thin cap. Leaves some nice, thick lacing

S: Plenty of resiny and piney hops, with an almost tea-like note as well. Also get some lightly spicy malts. Alcohol comes through slightly

T: More balanced than the nose would suggest, with some sweet malts coming thorough right along with the hops. Neither really takes front stage, and mellow each other out. Malts are sweet and lightly spicy and the hops are earthy, piney, and grassy. Finishes bitter with a light alcohol kick

M: Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation

O: Definitely one of the more balanced DIPAs out there, with a big malt presence to go along with the hops. The bitterness eventually wins out over the sweetness, and the alcohol has a looming presence throughout. Definitely for those who like a well-balanced IPA

I picked this up at Giant in Linglestown, poured chilled from a 750 into a tulip.

The color is deep copper with an almost ruby hue with thick cream of 2 fingers or more with fine bead and lace sticks well. The smell is very fruity up front with lots of piney woody hop aromas when swirled with a hint of alcohol ester and light sweet malt aroma. The feel is very bitter and gassy with sharp bitterness and slightly astringent feel with light sweetness and subtle acidic and warming texture of alcohol with spicy almost abrasive finish.

The taste is full of resinous piney hop flavor with sharp bitter hop tastes covering some of the malt sweetness yet you know it is there based on the fullness on the palate it is also obscured slightly by the alcohol which makes the bitterness of the hops seem harsher than it needs to be, but a relatively dry finish leaves the mouth ready for the next pummeling on the palate with hops which don't seem to let up. Overall this is a drinkable beer, but I would probably have shared this rather than enjoyed this bruiser by myself if I had known what I was getting into. I recommend chilling this well, perhaps some of the issue was I only gave it 1/2 hour in the icebox rather than a full hour the heavy bottle could have used. I would pair this with a nice pepper steak or some chili to augment the hops with some complimentary spice perhaps.

Poured a nice deep golden orange, almost amber like in color. Had a really appealing one finger, off white, fluffy head. No visible carbonation bubbles and left a pleasing lace trail.

Smells of piney hops and fresh citrus maybe orange?

Tastes of sweet caramel at first with a subtle citrus flavor. Has a spiciness to it and a nice big hoppy taste which is really pleasent on the tastebuds and isn't too overpowering.

Leaves a slight bitterness in the finish and has a bit of a thick mouthfeel with a slight stickiness that coats the whole mouth.

Overall really surprised and impressed with this beer. A bit high in alcohol so it's definitely a sipper! Would absolutely drink this again!
