Uinta Brewing Company

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.

A: hazy; burnt orange in color; 2.5 finger pillowy head that receded over a few minutes; moderate lacing;

S: very aromatic; tropical fruit, a little floral; a touch of sharpness;

T: tropical fruit up front; combines with pine at mid-palate; mostly an earthy pine at the finish with a bit of tropical fruit in the background;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; very dry finish; hides the ABV well;

O: nicely complex flavors;

Pours a red amber that's a bit hazy, minimal white head but it sticks around
Sweet caramel malt mixes with citrus grapefruit and light pine
Tastes follows nose with initial sip then leads to a building bitter showing some sweetness then returns the bitter mixing back w the sweet. You sense the alcohol. For how bitter it is the sweetness is equally strong
Mouthfeel is dry, medium
Overall a fair double ipa, but not quite up there

A - Clear golden orange with a finger of foamy off white head, no lacing.
S - Really odd aroma, lightly skunky, big toasted caramel malt, over-ripe fruit, grass.
T - This started out with a ton of diacetyl, then warped into a malty mess, hops are buried in malt sweetness.
M - Chewy, but exists your palate decently.
O - This is just gross, I had to stop about half way through and pour it out, idk if it was the batch or what, but the overwhelming amount of malt in this makes this "IPA" a flop.

Not too impressed with this one. Had high hopes because I liked other Uinta beers.

Orange / brown color, looked nice, but smell just wasn't as expected...pine, some hops, but just not very good

Taste...just not my thing. More bitter than hoppy. Grapefruit, pine, no mouthfeel at all. Wasn't happy. Only good thing is I didn't taste the alcohol.
