- My Rating: [C+], I gave it a (3.0 of 5) on Ratebeer.com
Detour India Session Ale – Muskoka Brewery, 4.3% ABV, 473 ml., (Bracebridge, Ontario, Canada)
printed on the back of the can:
“A refreshingly adventurous for those who want to stray from the everyday. Dry-hop brewed as a sessionable IPA, it delivers a rewarding aroma and a taste less travelled. And in case you see a little haze and sediment, that’s a good thing, and totally natural-a result of our pure, unfiltered brewing process.”
- Style: India Session Ale

Visual: Pours clear golden orange with a smallish dissipating head, thin large island retention, just a few slow micro streams.
Nose: apricot tangerine citrusy. (lvl-5)-pungency
Attack: crisp-citrusy malty
Mid-palate: fizzy-almost creamy, (lvl-2-sweetness), apricot-grapefruity-piney
Finish: dry lager grainy barley malt, soft bitter hops, thinnish body.
Summary: Approachable malty citrusy flavour, but a tad thin – can’t expect too much for 4.3%er.
