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.

1.5/5  rDev -60.1%
look: 1.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

6 months of age on this bottle but the hop presence is huge on the nose. I believe the liquor store I got it from has kept it refrigerated so that should've kept it somewhat fresh. Brilliantly clear amber color will a huge sticky off white head. Sticky webbing. Big malt nose, lots of raisin oddly enough but lots of pine and grapefruit as well. Spicy earthy hops as well. Some subtle alcohol on the nose as well.

A very spicy and malty DIPA. Tons of pine and earthy spice with lots of caramel and pale malt. Some detectable alcohol. Flavors are blended into one concise sip which is odd for a DIPA this size but impressive. Carbonation is there but low. Mouthfeel is syrupy. This bottle has a big of age on it but it's been kept cold, the problem with a beer like this is it's price tag. Uinta makes great big beers but this one is forced to sit because of its high cost. Despite being kept cold i'm sure the flavor is affected a bit. None the less tastes like a big double English IPA with tons of flavorless malts and subtle hops. Kind of a trick show from whats supposed to be such a big beer.

First dissapointing brew from Uinta.

Reviewed from notes.

Pours a moderate orange color with a tad bit of white head that recedes quickly without too much lacing. Nose is...booze. Then, booze. The hops are really faint. There is a tiny bit of citrus in the background as well as some grain, but this is mostly a hot mess. The bitterness and the alcohol really do not combine well. I would not recommend this beer.

Had at Birreria Paradiso in Georgetown. Was very disappointed to not get a refund on this beer, as it seemed oxidized and old (from being experienced with DIPA's as I am). I was assured thats how it tastes, so I am forced to review it the way it was.

A: Dark orange to amber in color, ring of head with nice sticky lacing.

S: Some muted hops mostly dominated by tutti fruit malt and dark fruits, screams oxidized to me, almost like a young barleywine. Some grassy hop notes on top, but the bready sweet sticky fruit dominates..

T: Egh, even worse than the smell. Some alcohol sweetness or heat, a little citrus that is blown away by all the sickly sweet fruity stuff. raisin, prune, just seems dead and wrong for the style.

M: Medium, tons of heat.

D: Huge disappointment. Wish I got a refund but didnt get it. didn't finish my glass, couldn't.

Gonna call this one a swing and a miss.

The appearance started with a good forthy pour that had plent of lacing and settled to a pleasing head.

Smell was hoppy and a hint of sweetness.

Taste was a large languishing let down. The hops were smothered in a grity musky alcohol burn that nearly extinguished an drinkability.

Mouthfeel was nicely carbonated but the alcohol nearly feels like an additive at this point.

Overall a disappointment.

750ml bottle (bottled 3/30/10) received for volunteering at the ACBF in Boston. Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - After getting off the ridiculously difficult to remove cork...pours a mostly clear, deep orangey amber color with three fingers of dnese creamy tan head (love this Duvel glass!!!) with excellent staying power. Head seems to last forever (not sure this is even ever going to fade, no less disappear) with endless plumes of carbonation bubbles pluming up from the bottom of the glass. Beautiful!

S - Very heavy caramel aroma mixed with citrusy and green hop aromas and straight sugary barley malt...think hopped Goya. I was sitting in a brewpub the other day during a brew session and this strongly reminds me of the aromas there and in my own kitchen during a homebrew session. Extremely malty aromas mixed with fresh hops - smells wort-like! As good as this smells "in process" it gives me a bit of worry about being under-attenuated and overly malty for the style. We will see.

T - Well, I have to say the flavor is quite a bit like the aroma. This is a bit tough for me. Sweetness is quite cloying, caramel is overpowering. Hops are definitely fresh, green, grassy and a bit herbal. This tastes like the samples I take from the brew kettle or the primary fermenter before pitching yeast to grab an OG number. Again, as enjoyable as that is during the brewing process (lets me know the finish beer will be good "after" it ferments), this is too much for me in a finished beer. I'm gonna call this one sickly sweet and be done with it.

M - This is thick, sugary sweet and syrupy in feel. This really is so much like unfermented wort...I just can't get by this sensation.

D - I had heard good things about this one, but I am really just not getting it...this one isn't for me. This is the '09 Dark Lord of DIPA's to me. It is so sickly sweet and underattenuated, I really can't get thru this bottle. I always feel bad about drainpouring beer, but I just can't help this one. I had such high expectations from the appearance, but it all went downhill from there...really an exercise in extremes - as Pete Sampras would say..."This one - she is a pitching wedge. She looks good from 150 yards away, but on closer inspection, she just doesn't hold up."

Looked good, smells nice then I took a sip. Really a disappointment, really too sweet, too viscous, not enough of a bitter snap, strange finish and after taste. A really poor example of a DIPA IMO, really nothing to like or recommend with this brew. Hiding this behind a cork and cage is window dressing on a very below average DIPA. Where it counts it's a Yuck.

Bottle (2011)

Thanks for sharing Nathan!

Dark and clear auburn and orange with a small off-white head. Leaves little lacing down the glass. Looks thin and oily.

Powerfully alcoholic aroma, sweet toffee and caramel, and then more alcohol, unfortunately. There's a hint of pine and citrus lurking in the background. I'm having trouble putting it it to my lips. I don't want to.

Toffee and caramel sweetness, some faint pine hop presence, and lots of warm, stinging, and unpleasant alcohol.

Medium bodied, though a touch oily.

Too hot.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Poured from a 750ml corked and caged bottle into my tulip glass.

A - Very good looking beer. Pours a deep, clear amber with two fingers and change of fluffy white head. Head slowly dissapates staying for almost the whole glass and leaving a nice lace.

S - Bottle says there are four types of hops used for this beer. They give off a very piney smell with a bit of citrus as well. You can definitely smell the alcohol starting to poke through the hop aroma.

T - The malts hit you first, and seem to follow along with the amber coloring but quickly fades out. Then the pine hops take over in a big way. The best word I can think to describe them is sharp. The biggest downfall I found was the inability of the hops to cover the alcohol. The hops and alcohol seem to just combine to form an overly sweet and biting beer, without the pleasant bitterness of most DIPAs.

M - Pretty light for the style, leaves your mouth feeling very dry.

D - I was pretty dissapointed with this one considering how much I've enjoyed Uinta's other offerings - Detour just seemed really unbalanced. Drinkability for me was low and I found myself glad I had someone to split the 750ml bottle with.

2.75/5  rDev -26.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

750ml bottle - $7.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia. Bottled on: 11/22/11. Like their Labyrinth, the cork was a total nightmare to get out. It took three grown, presumably healthy people and the cork eventually ripped down the middle requiring a corkscrew to excavate the remnants.

Appearance: Pours out a hazed, dark golden-amber body with a fully foaming, off-white head. Heavy lace on the way down.

Smell: A sweetish scent of caramelized sugars over toasty, bready malts with noted citric, woodsy, green grassy hop notes and some fusel wafts. Not entirely appealing, to be honest.

Taste: Sugary caramel with plenty of toasty, bready malts. Splash of liquor singes the tongue early on. Pinch of freshly swept sawdust. Heavy, heady hop flavors of citrus pith, resin-damp wood chips, and sun-dried grasses (and noxious, lawn-spoiling weeds). Medium-high bitterness. It remains a bit boozy (okay, more than a bit) through to the end (and beyond). Bitter, hot finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Medium carbonation. Slick mouthfeel.

Overall: It's a DIPA, so it's a big beer, but it's too brash and the rough booziness tires me out quickly. Make a detour around Double Detour and pick up something else, something better.

Beer is orange and clear with a big head of small and medium bubbles. Head leaves a lot of lacing on the glass and carbonation is moderate to low. Off to a good start.

The aroma is sweet first and hoppy second. Overall pretty weak in the nose.

Beer is super syrupy sweet and the bitterness is late and weak or overshadowed by the sweet. Pretty earthy / sulfury in the midpalate of this beer. Not very good.

eyes...
holy head batman! jeez, I didn't shake this thing up before the pour ... but I would stand accused from the look of this thing, three full fingers of head dominate the glass (like dennis rodman on a good night), big white soapy head, slightly burnt orange hue with moderate carbonation meandering toward the massive white cap. this is going to take a few minutes to settle...
(a few minutes pass by)...
the head finally settles down enough to approach this beer. It settles in to about 1/2 a finger of creamy thick goodness.. damn good looking beer.

nose...
herbal west coast hops, some pine, a hope menagerie, some honey notes underneath the massive hop blanket, the nose is really fresh and juicy, this definitely is making sweet hop love to the nostrils, quite close to DFH 90min imo.

taste etc...
lacks body, kind of sweet up front in a weird way, the alcohol comes into the mix as well, definitely immediately heats up the gully, this pretty much just winds up bitter with abv punch... no backbone to hold up the hops.

verdict?
let down, this looks great but man the body just can't hold up all the hops. this is a bitter bomb and nothing else, and really becomes rather unenjoyable

2.88/5  rDev -23.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color with a very nice head that hangs around for quite a while, leaving a few strands behind

Smell: Very leafy and piney, with undertones of caramel

Taste: A load of malty sweetness on the front end, with a boozy caramel wallop; by mid-palate, however, the leafy hop flavors arrive, bringing an aggressive bitterness that hangs around, after the swallow, and well into the finish

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation, boozy warmth descends down the gullet and warms the belly

Overall: Well, this beer certainly blazes a new trail but I can't say it's one I wish to follow; the hop profile is harsh and bitter, more than flavorful and the malts are so big and boozy; the flavor elements struggle to come together, but I am not going to wait around to see if they do - there are too many better DIPAs out there to spend more time on this

A: Pours orange color smallish head no lacing

M: Medium to full bodied beer, finished dry
O: I expected more out of this beer, way to sweet not much in the way of hops. Seems to me more like a barleywine or Old ale or something of that sort not a Imperial IPA. Don't be distracted by the fancy bottle/cork/cage its whats inside the bottle that matters.

2/22/2012

On tap at The Beer Company before the Symphony X and Iced Earth concert.

A: Yellow gold with stunning clarity and a mountain of a white sea foam head. Excellent retention and lots of lacing.

S: Floral and aromatic with soft orange and tangerine. Malt is balancing caramel and bread.

T: Alcoholic up front (this doesn't subside) with a lightly spicy floral aspect. Caramel and bread overshadow feeble orange notes. There's notable astringency in the boozy finish.

M: Medium body with upper medium carbonation.

Overall: Despite their claim, Uinta isn't blazing any trails with this beer. Perhaps if your world consists of Utah. Solid aroma and subpar flavor.

Taste: caramel, loads of pine, biting grapefruit and lemon, ripe fruit sweetness, and alcohol create a bit of an unbalanced DIPA.

Drinkability: this beer is slow to drink as it is a bit unbalanced and overtly harsh.

Awesome foam and lacing that sticks to the sides of my glass like small bits of tan bread dough. Great copper Ipa color and great bubbling to boot.

Super grass and orange peel, earthen hops with enough toasted, biscuit malts to keep the hops from overpowering the nostrils.

The taste has the right, fresh orange peel bitterness, but there's also a sharp metallic twang that kills a chunk of the malts possible impact on the flavor. All I get are watered down, but super toasted biscuits.

The palate is sharp and zesty, but also noticeably tinny and bloody. Not overwhelming so as not being able to enjoy the beer, but more than enough.

Tried this at the 2010 ACBF, it was the first time I had tried anything from the Crooked lineup that Uinta has. I gave the IIPA a try because I figured it'd be strong enough to taste over everything else I had that day. The beer poured from a bottle was a golden color with a big foamy head. The lacing was decent. The smell was hoppy but not overly impressive. The taste was even less impressive, perhaps it's the hops they used but it just wasn't that big on the flavor end. The mouthfeel was alright, medium bodied. Overall it was a little disappointing.

750ml bottle, bottled on 3/30/10. Pours a clear light amber with a big creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is floral and soapy, fruity (melon), piney hops with a little stinkiness (summit?). It's pretty subdued though.

The flavor is sweet malts with some melon and soapiness. It has a pretty big grassy bitterness with some pepper and stinkiness. There's a huge amount of harsh bitterness that lingers in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with lower carbonation and almost watery.

Overall, I just couldn't get into it. A little reminiscent of Gubna (summit hops?), but not as well done. The soapiness was a little weird too. And it wasn't really well balanced with the abrasive bitterness in the finish.

red tinted copper color produces a generous white head that sticks around a while and leaves plenty of lacing on the glass.

lots of white toast, and light caramel malts and the hops are a bit more muted and add some pine, tropical fruits, and leafy herbs.

tastes like a bit of a light barleywine with malts attacking the palate first. very sweet taste of caramel, corn syrup and toast dominates, and barely gives way to some piney, earthy, floral hops.

light medium bodied beer with ample carbonation behind an oily, sticky and sweet finish.

a relatively tough one to drink, even though its my favorite style. in an attempt to create balance, it seems they went a bit overboard with the sweetness. reminds me of dfh 120, though on a lesser scale. not terrible, but not recommended.

$7.99 bomber from Oak Tree.

Bottled 4/8/11. Corked and caged 750.

I feel corked and caged is a bit over the top for an double ipa. Quads, Imperial Stouts, and special anniversaries maybe.

Bold, crystal clear amber body (maybe too clear,expected a little chill haze), topped by four fingers of billowing white froth. Plenty of lacing.

Nose starts off piney, but quickly switches to citrus, apricots backed by oranges. Enjoyable, but could use a bit more power (call Tim Taylor).

Big malty foundation coats the tongue. Juicy fruit fights to overcome all that malt, and barely does. Good hop bite at the swallow, with a bit of alcohol burn hot on its tail. Belly warmth overshadows the lingering hops in the aftertaste.

Suitable medium mouthfeel. Somewhat chewy.

Overall, an okay DIPA, but not exceptional. Too well balanced for the style, the hops need the spotlight more.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear copper color. The head starts at two fingers high (the color is off-white) and slowly recedes to a thin film, leaving some very nice lacing down the glass. Retention is very good.

S: At first, my nose is slightly pricked by herbaceous notes. After a while, I really notice the Mosaic hops in this. While a bit mild here, they bring decent notes of apricot, blueberry, mango, and sweet onion. Caramel and honey malt notes are prevalent throughout. No real wowing moments, but it gets the job done.

T: Maltier than what the nose promised, unfortunately. There's a gentle kiss of flowery, fruity Mosaic hops throughout, but is otherwise dominated by large amounts of caramel and toffee. One of my friends described this as tasting like an imperial amber - and he's dead on. It really isn't a bad imperial amber (it's no Nugget Nectar, but what is?!), it just needs more hops to count as a proper DIPA. If it weren't for the upsurge of finishing bitterness, this would be really damn mediocre.

M: The tongue is slightly pricked by malt astringency. For such a malty, sweet DIPA, it's pretty drinkable without being boozy. Residual sugars gradually build up on the palate, creating a full body and excess sweetness after 2/3rds of the bottle. Well carbonated, though.

O: For such a malty DIPA, it's not a total chore to drink. Still, this needs more hop presence, plain and simple. This one is especially disappointing considering these guys also make Dubhe and Hop Nosh.

Poured into a Lost Abbey glass on 3/28/13

Bottled on: 02/27/13

A) Clear. Surprising clear even. Dulled and faded tobacco; dark for a DIPA. Two finger head of loose foam drops to 1/4th inch and leaves delicate lace meanderings. Slow rising bubbles. Thicker lace farther down.

S) Spritzy, herbal hop aroma; it has a botanical gin quality to it. Sweet candy citrus fruit, quarts of hop oils, pine, tea leaves, sugary grapefruit, sweet cracker and hints of sugar cookies. Perfume-like.

T) Tastes every bit as oily as it smells; perhaps even more so. Dank oils and pine resin. The herbal components throw me though - it's a cross between candy fruits, perfume and aerosol spray. Bombastic amount of rolling, grainy malt. I don't think it is pilsner malt, but it does have a more neutral, clean aspect that I associate with pilsner malts in an IPA. The finish scrapes against bitterness which leaves me with the same feeling of brushing up against poison ivy after a stroll in the woods (editor's note: I have no idea what was going through my mind when I wrote that).

M) Full, slick body and feel. Carbonation is moderate when sparring with the size of the beer. Not terribly boozy.

D) It's like hiking on a different trail - some of the same pretty stuff you're used to seeing but with some new sights and smells (editor's note: This is why I don't review anymore; that description is ridiculous).

Mmm...Polygamist beer. I thought Utah had a 4% law but oh well.

An amber-hued brew with a nice head on it's shoulders. Hints of pine and grapefruit with a chewy malt aroma dance and frolicing in my nose brain. This one is packing some heat. The taste is much like the nose but add some sharp alcohol notes.

Pretty good for Utah beer but not something I would pay money for.
