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.

750 ML bottle poured into a tulip, bottled 11/19/12

A - Pours a clear amber with red hues. Two finger fluffy light tan head that leaves some nice lacing. That's a fine looking beer.

S - Hops dominate the nose. Piney, resiny, some citrus. Notes of bread in the background.

T - Sweet malts upfront, a punch of pine and resin hops in the middle, medium bitterness. Finishes pretty dry for such a high abv. Also has a slight astringency in the flavor.

M - Medium to full bodied, light carbonation. Thick and definitely a sipper.

O - Good beer, not of the top DIPAs but I've had many worse.

Pours deep clear orange with a good thick cream colored head. Later pours out of the bomber result in a foamy skim. Nice lace and retention. Really pretty color.

Pine and resinous hop notes, some toasted malt.

Piney hops up front, leading to alcohol and some toasted malt. Boozy. Hop bitterness is thick on the palate. Malt is there, but never really develops. Some over-browned bead crust bitterness, very light fruit. An aggressive brew, but a little uneven. Dries out a bit in the end and is heavy bitter at the very end.

Medium to medium-full in body.

Very decent. Very hop forward (good), but needs a bit more malt development. That said, I'd still drink this again.

Today I had a Uinta Detour DIPA. It is my third bottle so I decided to review it. A 750ml bottled on 9/25/12 poured into my Stone Smoked Porter pint glass. $8.99 at Total Wine.

A. 5. Absolutely beautiful. Perfect hazy golden color with a huge slightly off white head. I had to pour it into my pint glass 3 times the head was so large on a medium pour.

S. 3.5. The malt and alcohol smell is so strong it's hard to detect it is an IPA. It smells relatively good and earthy, just not what I expected.

T. 3.5. More of the same. Nice malt taste with a pretty strong alcohol burn. You can definitely taste the hops and there is a great bitter sting on the sides of my tongue.

M. 4. Pretty darn nice. Medium bodied with a high presence of carbonation but it is definitely working for me. It leaves a dank hoppy aftertaste.

O. 3.5. A very nicely made beer. I have had 3 now and will almost definitely buy another. I enjoy Uinta beer and west coast hops and the cost per abv is right in my preferred area. While it is not ground breaking or even in my top 5 DIPAs, I definitely recommend trying it. Drink responsibly!
