American Double / Imperial IPA |  9.50% ABV

Availability: Year-round

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.

3.2/5  rDev -15.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A - Nice amber/red color with moderate cloudiness. Stocky foam with thick lacing

S - Even balance of floral and pine hopiness

T - Malty and dry. Touches of bubble gum but finishes rather flat, bitter and dry.

M - Thick and zingy. Heavy for a DIPA.

O - Drinkable but not something I seek out. Could use a little more balance and slightly less carbonation.

4.21/5  rDev +11.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: This beer has a red to amber coloring with yellow orange foam.

Smell: Floral with pine.

Taste: Nice spice and toasted wood. Pine. Light flowers.

Mouthfeel: Lighter than I would have expected from a double IPA but not necessarily in a bad way. Medium-full mouthfeel with a long finish.

Overall: I love the spice and heat. The flowers and pine are not nearly as strong in the taste as they are in the nose. Good beer.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Corked bottle...nice pop. Copper-red color with big head that lasts.
Aroma of dish water, citrus hops, alcohol.
Big, rich mouthfeel with significant carbonation.
Flavors of citrus hops, mango rind, tart grapefruit, dark cane sugar... slight pepper, cream of tartar, rum, pine, caramel. Big flavors with some significant astringency, alcohol and burnt sweetness with a somewhat dry finish. Not all the flavors I love in a double IPA but decent.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 750ml bottle. Great color of bronze orange with good carbonation. Moderate head and lacing.

Brought this bottle along to a BBQ and it was well received. Not very hop forward on the nose but a decent amount of citrus zest was present.

Mouthfeel was above average. Nice sweetness present on initial entry and a good balance between hop and malt with neither being very forward and virtually no bitterness on the finish. I think this was very pleasant and one I'd grab again.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

750 ML bottle poured into a tulip, bottled 11/19/12

A - Pours a clear amber with red hues. Two finger fluffy light tan head that leaves some nice lacing. That's a fine looking beer.

S - Hops dominate the nose. Piney, resiny, some citrus. Notes of bread in the background.

T - Sweet malts upfront, a punch of pine and resin hops in the middle, medium bitterness. Finishes pretty dry for such a high abv. Also has a slight astringency in the flavor.

M - Medium to full bodied, light carbonation. Thick and definitely a sipper.

O - Good beer, not of the top DIPAs but I've had many worse.
