Detour Double India Pale Ale brewed by Uinta Brewing Company, with an ABV of 9.50% This American Imperial IPA pours out of a 12oz can into a pint beer glass a deep golden amber color with a nice white head. Really digging the deep golden color almost a slight copper look to it. There is also a nice amount of lacing to this brew, it sticks to the side of the glass well. The smell is rich with lots of strong IPA notes, not saying that is a bad thing. You first pick up on the hop bitterness. Then it mixed with lots of earthy grains and malts. So far this is a nice inviting brew. Now for the taste, it is Bold with hop bitterness , but a slight sweetness in the taste as well . Then there is a nice amount of earthy grains and malts tgat mixes well with the hop bitterness. The body of Detour Double India Pale Ale is a medium to heavy, but not to heavy. It is hard to pick up on the 9.50% AN ABV in the IPA, it just goes down that smooth. The mouth feel is Hoppy,Bold, Clean, Smooth and Refreshing. Overall I'm going to give Detour Double India Pale Ale a soild 4 out of 5. I would definitely look this brew up again giving the opportunity to. Uinta Brewing Company, did a real nice job with this American IPA.

[Original rating 2012-09-01] Pours copper with a tall tan head. Aroma is citrus and grass, spicy hops, a hint of malt. Taste citrusy hops with a bitter slightly boozy finish. Fine carbonation, nice mouth feel, just right for a DIPA.

Look is a dark and rich colored amber. Hoppy aroma that smells very good. Has a good malt backbone that I prefer. Taste's very satisfying for a DIPA lover like me. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel so this is an excellent brew. I'd like it to have a bit more sweetness but I'll buy this one again. Poured into an IPA glass from a 12 ounce aluminum can.

Pours out a orange copper color. The head is khaki with excellent retention. There is a fair amount of lacing in scattered rings and splotches around the glass.

The nose is bitter orange with a nice sweet caramel malty back bone. Very well balanced.

You get a caramel sweetness upfront but this time around you get a piney bitterness through the middle. Finish is sweet with a bitterness that lingers in the back of the tongue and throat.

Mouthfeel is full bodied and smooth. Carbonation is on the mediums side and does well lifting the mouthfeel a bit so as that it doesn't feel weighed down.

Red IPA. Too much malt and not enough hops to offset the dry, malty finish. Strong hops, but even stronger malts.

Detour has a medium, white head, a somewhat clear, orange appearance, and moderate glass lacing. Aroma is of sweet, white bread and hop oils. Taste is of strong bitterness. hop resins, and sugary, white bread. Mouthfeel is nearly heavy, and Detour finishes dry and sticky.

Drinks a lot smoother than a triple IPA I’d tried, which it IS, almost. Love the burn and the hops. Malt is behind only because of all the alcohol and hops. Big big good beer though.
