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.

Older 750ml bottle served in a Leffe glass at slightly warmer than fridge temps. Label says it was bottled on 07/2013 so I'm trying it at a little over a year old.

Appearance: reddish golden hue with a frothy head. Beautiful lace along the top of the glass where the head has sank down to the level of the liquid.

Nose: Rich chocolate and malt (smells like DME used in home brewing), slight hop aroma, heavy on the malts.

Taste: Smooth and rich mouthfeel that coats the entire palate. The overwhelming amount of malts shine through, very minor hop bitterness but enough to balance out the malts. Can't discern the alcohol initially even though it is at 9.5%.

Finish: Lingering with that excellent malt. Still coats the mouth and stays with you. Warming alcoholic finish.

It's too bad Uinta moved the Detour DIPA to a 12oz bottle. A beer of this magnitude needs to be in a 750ml version. I'm going to see if can find some more of these and age them a bit (I know, heresy to age such a hop forward beer. 120 Minute IPA does exceptionally well with age)

Clear honey colored with an orangey beige low head that settles out to a low cap. Low aroma of bready malt and floral hops. Rich and intense flavor, but not what I'd call pleasing. It's acrid and medicinal, the hops are rough and hard-edged, without much depth of flavor. Mouthfeel is full with some tingle, but overall this is a poor example of the style. Drank two weeks before the "best by" date, so apparently it doesn't get too much fresher?
