Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Beaver13 on 05-30-2010

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: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A - Hazy gold, 1 1/2 fingers off white head. Good lacing.

S - Piney, spicy hops. Strong malt backbone. Light caramel.

T - Citrus hops, malty sweetness, spice, heavy bitterness. A little bit boozy.

M - Thick mouthfeel. Coats the palate. Medium carb,

O - A solid double IPA. A little on the heavy side at 9.5%. The alcohol is relatively well-hidden.
Enjoyable, but probably not something I'd seek out again.

A little malt in the nose.
Taste: Strong hops up front. Very piney and resinous. Fairly well balanced with the malts without being too sweet.
Long lasting pine resin finish with a little sweetness.
Overall true to their regular 'Hop Notch" IPA, but with beefed up characteristics.
Bought as 4 pack for~$10; potential repeat buy.

A 4 - copper amber clear color with a white head that leaves good lacing
S 3.75 - lots of pine with a aired breast malt background. Pretty fresh smelling though.
T 3.75 - pine, pineapple. Lots of breast malt.
M 3.75 - grainy, coarse. Alc covered. Aftertaste bready with some pine.
O 3.75 - its ok. One time buy.
