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.

This beer provided an outstanding foamy, pillow-like head. The smell was oily hops and the taste and mouth feel was very oily as well. Could have used a bit of balance in my estimation. A decent DIPA, but a little over the top. Maybe a bit of time to let the hops cool it as little would be a good solution.

Poured into a Lost Abbey glass on 3/28/13

Bottled on: 02/27/13

A) Clear. Surprising clear even. Dulled and faded tobacco; dark for a DIPA. Two finger head of loose foam drops to 1/4th inch and leaves delicate lace meanderings. Slow rising bubbles. Thicker lace farther down.

S) Spritzy, herbal hop aroma; it has a botanical gin quality to it. Sweet candy citrus fruit, quarts of hop oils, pine, tea leaves, sugary grapefruit, sweet cracker and hints of sugar cookies. Perfume-like.

T) Tastes every bit as oily as it smells; perhaps even more so. Dank oils and pine resin. The herbal components throw me though - it's a cross between candy fruits, perfume and aerosol spray. Bombastic amount of rolling, grainy malt. I don't think it is pilsner malt, but it does have a more neutral, clean aspect that I associate with pilsner malts in an IPA. The finish scrapes against bitterness which leaves me with the same feeling of brushing up against poison ivy after a stroll in the woods (editor's note: I have no idea what was going through my mind when I wrote that).

M) Full, slick body and feel. Carbonation is moderate when sparring with the size of the beer. Not terribly boozy.

D) It's like hiking on a different trail - some of the same pretty stuff you're used to seeing but with some new sights and smells (editor's note: This is why I don't review anymore; that description is ridiculous).
