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.

Certainly couldn't taste the alcohol in this one - mostly because of the sandpaper astringency that apparently comes with merciless infusions of alpha acid. Not my favorite example of this style by any stretch, though I'm a big fan of other Uinta beers.

A - I have to agree with others it looks like bile very hazy amber brown liquid not filtered in the slightest. Head is a 1/2 inch that seems to settles for a while.
S - Musty herbal hop water with mild gritty undertones. Really hope it's not as bitter as other said.
T - Herbal hops mend my palate with medicine like bitterness, mild grainy roughness, and a finish that fades out which surprisingly hides the high ABV. Not bad.
M - Not sure why most say its so bitter it does have an earthy hop bite but smooth hidden ABV. Medium bodied though and weird.

Overall I paid 4 bucks for this and feel cheated. Unita has been hit or miss their best beer being the exceptional Labyrinth Black Ale. I guess I should just stick to their malty dark beers and stouts...
