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. Venture to pair with other spirited flavors such as those found in spicy ethnic foods.

riversideAK (5560) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2010
Nose of sweet caramel, juicy citrus, oranges, floral notes, and some alcohol. Pours bright amber with a nice lasting creamy head. Flavor of sweet caramel throughout, but balanced very nicely with juicy citrus, floral, and piney hops. Some alcohol heat shows up. Linger hop flavor and residual sugar. Pretty big on the malt, but enough hops to balance. It never becomes iced tea like like many big sweet ipa’s/iipa’s, Well done.

750ml bottle from Binny’s in Plainfield, IL. Label says bottled on 9/22/2010. Pours a clear, bright amber-orange colored body with a finger-width, dense and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a very nice lacing throughout. This is a gorgeous looking beer. Aroma has lots of caramels and sweet oranges. A good amount of fresh pines and some florals with a touch of toast and resin. Some pineapple and peaches creep in there too. Flavor is nice. Sweeter caramels with more resiny pines than the aroma. Lots of oranges and other citruses with more of an herbal taste to the hops. Finishes with a touch of spice and a hint of toasty toffee before the pines give this a dry, fairly resiny, medium-high bitterness as well as a lingering caramel, orange sweetness. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium, somewhat oily body with a very soft, moderate carbonation that works really well with this. Overall, a very nice DIPA. Fairly sweet with lots of oranges, but lots of pines to balance. Solid carbonation makes everything stand out that much more.

First off, this is a beautiful beer. The color is glowing orange and the head is thick, long lasting and evenly sized small bubbles. The lace sticks to the glass in big sheets. The nose is nice, very heavily piny but w/ some floral and citrus in there too. The level of sweetness here is almost barleywine-ish, which gives it a thick honey and melon taste. It works alright but I feel that the nose begs for a drier and more drinkable texture w/ this does not deliver. It is not bad but I just don’t think it’s an ideal match for the nose. Still a good beer though. I can get behind it.

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 11, 2010
My Bottom Line:
This relatively sweet Double IPA is enlivened by leafy, green hop explosions, yet its toasted, caramelized cereals tend to dominate even though a resinous bitterness sure tries to take over.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam sits atop the clear pale amber.
-The soft carbonation makes the sweetness more apparent.
-Oranges and sandy minerals also leap from the hop profile.
-This is a well done Double IPA, no doubt, but its dextrins are too present for my personal taste in the style.

Bottle.

A very malty specimen with a defined sweetness from start to finish. Some good attributes but overall too much fat.

dcschiller (2201) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 9, 2010
(750ml bottle). Pours hazy copper with cascading off-white head 3 fingers tall. Active carbonation. Nice lacing. Aroma of hopfunk, citrus, pine. Taste is bitter with sweetness punching through. Balanced nicely. Medium bodied with creamy (the head that never dies) and oily texture. This is a smooth IPA. Very good. I waited to try this why?? Would definitely get again.

Magnum from the rip and run. At $7 for the corked and caged bottle, this was quite a deal. My third Unita brew is so far the best. Nose of hops malts and then more hops. Even the cork reeks of hops ripening on the vine. 9.5%??!!!!?? YMBM! this is highly consumable, for I drank the whole damn thing before dinner. Sticky spotty lacing retains itself on the glass and must be scrubbed off. A lovely lighter golden in the glass. Medium to full bodied but not overpowering in the least. Hop nose lingers and is quite pleasant on this windy day. Head was fluffy to start but settled fast. Light carbonation. The dude abides.

ben4321 (3569) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 4, 2010
Location: 750 ml bottle from Buy Rite - Jersey City, 11/4/10

Aroma: The nose is sweet and hoppy, there’s some caramel, toast, fresh grapefruit, and orange
Appearance: A cloudy mahogany colored beer with a thick, lasting, off-white head leaving coating lace
Flavor: The taste big sweet up-front, citrus and malts, with a pronounced bitter, hoppy backing
Palate: The body of this one is medium-full, and this one is scarily drinkable considering the ABV
Overall Impression: This is a really good beer, surprisingly good even. At "only" a 94, I would actually say this one is slightly underrated, and considering how easy it is to drink this stuff, at almost 10% it is pretty dangerous. This is the best beer I have had from Uinta by far, and I look forward to drinking this one again.
