No approach is a one-size-fits-all solution. Web applications that want to heavily modify the content or user flow for mobile users should probably go for a separate mobile site.

If you need to slightly alter the site’s message for mobile users, but want to reap the benefits of a responsive design, a hybrid approach may be your best bet. Decisions like these are at the heart of mobile web development: be specific about what you would like to accomplish, and pick a practical approach while being aware of the tradeoffs. Good luck!
