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.

Poured a nice deep golden orange, almost amber like in color. Had a really appealing one finger, off white, fluffy head. No visible carbonation bubbles and left a pleasing lace trail.

Smells of piney hops and fresh citrus maybe orange?

Tastes of sweet caramel at first with a subtle citrus flavor. Has a spiciness to it and a nice big hoppy taste which is really pleasent on the tastebuds and isn't too overpowering.

Leaves a slight bitterness in the finish and has a bit of a thick mouthfeel with a slight stickiness that coats the whole mouth.

Overall really surprised and impressed with this beer. A bit high in alcohol so it's definitely a sipper! Would absolutely drink this again!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

22 oz. wine type bottle corked and caged.

Pours a clear orange amber color with a wispy honey colored had that remains persistently.

Smell is reminiscent of Myrcenary with a sharp piney note.

Taste is very harsh bitterness. Piney with grapefruit pith and dry on the end. Lasting biterness and an alcohol bite.

Mouthfeel is full and oily with smooth effervescence.

Overall this is a bit too much despite my love of hops. I like west coast style like Double Jack but this DIPA did not meet that standard.
