Ontario Canada's Muskoka region is a special place. Littered with small lakes, the region is the premier cottage area for the rich and famous from Toronto. I would have thought that a craft brewer with clientele as demanding as rich Torontonians, would have brewed a better product.
I tried Muskoka Brewery's Detour IPA after reading about it online. The brewer describes it as taking a left turn from other IPA's by dry hopping as part of the method. I have no clue what this means. All I know was that I was expecting something different.
Maybe I did get something different, but I didn't think I got anything special. There was no head when poured (boo), and it had a slightly hoppy medium bodied flavour. I enjoyed the beer, but it certainly doesn't stand out. There are plenty of other IPA's I would select over this one.
I expected more from a brewer that has been making beer since 1996. Maybe it's just me, and I kept going straight instead of taking the detour. As a result, Detour IPA only gets three burps.
If you disagree let me know.
