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.

Uncorked this big bomber. Massive Carmel head, rich as a root beer float, lasted forever. Lacing clinging like thin carbon vines, sliding, tearing apart as they fall. Great clean aroma , malt swimming in 12 oz pool of Carmel. Taste is smooth with the subtle bite of a miniature poodle. At 9.5 ALC the alcohol is very well hidden in the sharp grapefruit overtones. Finishes the palette like a dry red wine, whispering balance with a quiet floral flame. Very good double IPA. Give me a bit more mystery, complexity, and this one could be at the top of the charts. Take the detour to a very good beer, Cheers!

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

pours with thick foamy head that settles like root beer float. Copper amber with 20% haze, sticky ring lacing.

Aroma: Big citrusy grapefruit hops, some biscuit and spice.

Taste: Malty up front and slides into smooth piney bitterness that fades in back of throat.

Mouthfeel: Creamy and slightly cloying.

Overall: Tasty ... balanced towards malt with hop backbone.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

25oz to a snifter, bottle date is smudged, sometime in September

Pours a very dark and transparent gold with red and orangish hues. Two generous fingers of head sport a good retention rate, moderate/high carbonation stemming from the bottom of the glass, good lacing. Really good looking

Smells a bit malty, age may have got to this one. Strong caramel and bready malts that're a bit sweet. Hops are still around but not nearly as dominant, spicy pine and and citrus finished with a bit of alcohol

Taste is a bit more balanced, spicy earthy pine with a splash of citrus followed by a strong caramel malt. Finishes with a pretty heavy taste of alcohol. Everything sort of melts into each other

Feel is a heavy body for an ipa, medium bitterness with a dry finish. Drinks pretty warm, the booze is really present. I can finish my bottle, I won't want anymore than that

Overall not terrible, just a little heavy in the wrong places. Being at least four months old doesn't help either
