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.

Quick review as I already finished it.

A well balanced DIPA if that makes sense, got a great hop bite in smell and aroma, not mind shattering but it also wasnt super fresh. Had a smooth but sweet malt backbone, lots of caramel and honey. Pretty good value, well integrated ABV, glad I tried it, would love to have some fresh.

Preamble - This is a 5 across the board for me. It's a grail beer for me along with Stone's IPA.

Poor - Nice frothy poor developing a good three finger head. Color is a perfect clear amber and the lacing is sticky.

Nose - Tropical fruit.

Taste - Tropical fruit, Very well balanced, nice sweet malt backbone; with a delicious cascade/centennial citrus/tropical fruit hop taste. For the ABV this is an awesome DIPA. It tastes like a 7 abv beer. The ethanol is completely masked and the mouthfeel is light; not heavy or syrupy. This isn't an overboard DIPA.

An awesome beer.

The beer comes in a crystal clear light ruby and dark reddish amber.

The aroma has huge overly sweet citrus and tropical pineapple, orange, peaches, dried apricot and mango along with a big resinous pine. Some green piney dankness. Some sweet bready malt.

In the front, again those hugely sweet tropical pineapple, mango, peaches, orange peel. A huge sugary sweetness with a bready malt backbone. A very clean experience. There’s a medium amount of alcohol in the back. With not much bitterness other than some spicy pine and green leaf qualities.

This beer drinks extremely clean despite the sweetness behind this beer. It reminds me of Enjoy By and a lower ABV Hi-Res. A highly underrated brew. Check this out!
