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.

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.

Pours deep clear orange with a good thick cream colored head. Later pours out of the bomber result in a foamy skim. Nice lace and retention. Really pretty color.

Pine and resinous hop notes, some toasted malt.

Piney hops up front, leading to alcohol and some toasted malt. Boozy. Hop bitterness is thick on the palate. Malt is there, but never really develops. Some over-browned bead crust bitterness, very light fruit. An aggressive brew, but a little uneven. Dries out a bit in the end and is heavy bitter at the very end.

Medium to medium-full in body.

Very decent. Very hop forward (good), but needs a bit more malt development. That said, I'd still drink this again.
