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. Venture to pair with other spirited flavors such as those found in spicy ethnic foods.
Wine Enthusiast 91 points - This is a full-flavored brew that, while certainly hop-forward, is not overdone or too bitter. Initial aromas of pine resin and grapefruit rind lead the nose, with additional scents of caramel, brown bread, and dried peach and apricot. The malts do a good job of keeping the palate grounded, with caramel and sweet bread dough flavors to balance out the assertive bitter-hop characteristics. With a full texture, rich palate and extremely long, dry finish, this is definitely a bottle best shared with friends. (Oct 2013)
