Preamble - This is a 5 across the board for me. It's a grail beer for me along with Stone's IPA.

Poor - Nice frothy poor developing a good three finger head. Color is a perfect clear amber and the lacing is sticky.

Nose - Tropical fruit.

Taste - Tropical fruit, Very well balanced, nice sweet malt backbone; with a delicious cascade/centennial citrus/tropical fruit hop taste. For the ABV this is an awesome DIPA. It tastes like a 7 abv beer. The ethanol is completely masked and the mouthfeel is light; not heavy or syrupy. This isn't an overboard DIPA.

An awesome beer.

Really great beer. I'm not a double IPA fan usually but this one is spot on. This is way underrated.

Uinta brand Detour double IPA, is a great and refreshing take on the American Double/Imperial IPA. Its froth level is about medium on a scale of thin/medium/thick. The body is about 4/5 the way to medium on a similar scale. The smell is refreshing, and sort of not too spicy but sort of suggestive of the medium spiced fore taste of the beer. The beer's color is a translucent but not too transparent dark amber.

The flavor starts off with a sort of semi bready and satisfying taste that moves into the deeper bitterish spiced hoppy notes of a Double American/Imperial. The after taste doesn't focus too much on the hoppyness but sort of includes the whole for and after taste if one will.

Overall a really tasty and well balanced American Double/Imperial, that checks all the right boxes and is a great beer. The mix between flavors and sort of coaxing in the double hoppy flavor makes this a great stand out American Double perhaps semi reminiscent of Stoudt's Double IPA.

This is one of the best beers of this style that I’ve ever had and, coincidently, from this brewery, another earth shaking beer. Poured with a large, foamy, frothy, cream colored head, that very slowly settles down, and some lace. Color is a crystal clear dark amber. Aroma is hops, malt, caramel, spice, yeast. Flavor is an incredibley well balance of bitter, sweet, & tang. Body is spot on: mouth filling and perfect carbonation. Finish is like flavor and extremely drinkable
