[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.

Uinta Brewing Company "Detour Double India Pale Ale"
12 fl. oz. can, "BEST BEFORE 09/04/18M #UNTHINKABLYDRINKABLE", sampled on 06/07/2018
$2.49 @ Whole Foods Market, South Street, Philaelphia, PA

Notes via stream of consciousness: A little bit darker than I thought it would be, very much a hazy deep copper that's starting to border on heading into russett brown. The head is a creamy finger-thick cap of yellowed off-white that's been holding quite well. The aroma is resinous, earthy, piney or spruce-like, and "dank" with some medium-dark caramel coming through as well. On to the flavor... you guessed it, as the aroma suggests. The hops appear first with the darkly caramelish malt rising from beneath as it crosses the middle of your mouth, and then asserts itself fully in the finish where the hops start to fade but the resolute bitterness rises. Some caramelish malt, spruce-like and herbal-spicy hops, and bitterness lingers. How strong is this beer? 9.5%!!! Yeah, I'm not finding that. There's some sense that there's strength there, as there should be, but the alcohol is otherwise very well hidden. Looking back the head has held up well and there's some very nice lacing left behind. In the mouth it's medium bodied and gently crisp-then-smooth. Overall it's a decent double IPA with an interesting hop character that's worth trying.

Darker than expected amber color. Thick, lingering head and lace. Sweet and malty in flavor. Very drinkable.
