American Double / Imperial IPA |  9.50% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Not too impressed with this one. Had high hopes because I liked other Uinta beers.

Orange / brown color, looked nice, but smell just wasn't as expected...pine, some hops, but just not very good

Taste...just not my thing. More bitter than hoppy. Grapefruit, pine, no mouthfeel at all. Wasn't happy. Only good thing is I didn't taste the alcohol.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Beer was poured into a tulip at Estelle's.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a copper color with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Super tight lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Citrus, caramel, bready malts, alcohol, floral, pungent, and a little booze.

Taste: Same as above with some grassy and bitter notes.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, tingly, low to medium carbonation, and medium bodied.

Overall: A nice DIPA. I've enjoyed this a bunch of times and many more in the future.
