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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

A- deep copper, rather clear, pours with a large tan head on it that takes a while to dissipate (so you can pour more)

S- hoppy and herbal with some citrus and light maltyness

T- Caramel malts are the first flavor with bitterness and hoppyness. Has quite a noticable alcohol warming, not the most hoppy of DIPAs. Finish is that orange-peel type bitterness that isn't the most pleasant.

M- Low carbonation with large body. As noted about it has quite a bit of alcohol warmness. Quite a creamy feel that is a little sticky, dosent stick around as much as many "sticky" beers do.

O- overall not too bad but not something I would seek out, especially due to the 750 ml bottle, just isnt that good and is a lot of high ABV beer for one person to drink (unless you are lucky and know more hop-heads than me)

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a customary copper and amber color, mild 1/2" head on it, no lacing or retention to speak of. Aroma was largely grassy, alcohol and bitterness.

Taste, more of the herbal component, bitterness, alcohol warmth, a smattering of hops. Lots of crystal malt. Herbal component drifts into pine aftertaste, which was appreciable given the way the bitterness and hay mouthfeel wasn't really moving in the right direction for me.

Would probably raise the score a little bit if this was in a 4/6 pack, but given that its about $10 for a 750, it really doesn't have the quality level worthy of such a price.

Hazy grapefruit coloured body, pleasant enough aroma. Average mouthfeel. A good hopping and malting, nicely balanced for the style so that my palate is not shredded. A lot of alcohol, is it necessary? Nice drinkability. Long finish. Fresh bottle from Shop Right.

Served in a Half Acre tulip.

A- dark copper with 2" white head and a lot of lacing remains on glass

S- caramel malts, citrus mainly grapefruit and pineapple

T- sweet caramel malts, nice citrus flavors and bitterness with a slight pine hop bite at finish. More malt heavy, not as bitter as other dipa's.

M- medium body and carbonation. Creamy and smooth finish.

O- good dipa but not one I would purchase regularly.

Reviewed from notes. 750ml bottle.

A: Pours a clear dark amberish with a solid 1-finger thick light tan head which fades to the rim and leaves spots of lace.

N: Tropical and citrus fruits, sweetish caramel malts.

T: Caramel malts, sweetness, mild citrus and some tropical fruit.

M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Dry, bitter, ABV noted in the finish.

O: Fairly respectable offering. Enjoyed.
