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.

Thechasm442 (402) - Wilmington, Illinois, USA - APR 10, 2012
750 ml bottle poured in a duvel tulip. Clear orange amber with a thick white head that tapers down to a half inch with sticky lacing. Aroma is pineapple, toffee, caramel and orange. Taste is pine resin, grapefruit, toffee, and some sweetness. Mouthfeel is on the syrupy side and the beer is well balanced with a taste that lingers. Pretty good.

MadRobin (2415) - Silver Spring, USA - APR 9, 2012
Sample poured from bottle at Encinitas Ale House in Encinitas, CA. Clear, reddish, copper with decent head and trivial lacing. Big caramel malt aroma with light, spicy hops, and a definite alcohol presence. Taste of sweet caramel and biscuit malt quickly followed by strongly bitter citrus and floral hops. Alcohol noticeable in the finish. Medium to full body with average carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PorterPounder (6301) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 6, 2012
Savannah, Ga - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 750 ml corked bottle. Sparkling medium orange pour, sticky off-white head, nice web of lacing. Fresh, fragrant aroma with sticky spruce, maple syrup and caramel. Robust flavor with plenty of hoppy goodness in the form of grapefruit and nectarines. Maltiness presents itself with some maple syrup sweetness, chewy caramel and a touch of mil chocolate. Thick, sticky mouthfeel. First Utah beer that I have had that was not consumed within the confines of the Salt Lake City Airport!

DeputyAndy (636) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2012
UPDATED: APR 29, 2012 Bottle. Pours a red color with some nice head. Aroma is very pine hoppiness. Don’t get a lot of citrus/tropical fruits in the taste, more pine and honey. A nice breadiness to it. Finishes sticky.

BBB63 (6475) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 30, 2012
Corked bottle and shared with my brewing buddy Frank: Clean deep golden hue with a modest head and okay lace. The aroma has notes of mango, pineapple, star fruit, pine and peppery hops, biscuity malts and a hint of mineral water. The taste is really smooth for a DIPA, almost too reserved. Mild constant bitterness over a layer of clean malts and slight hop spice finish. Alcohol is very well hidden (9.5% ? Really?). Easy to drink with moderate carbonation. Nice brew but not sure I would but again.

Lightly hazed amber. Rich tropical pineapple aroma, mild citrussy spice. Dry citrussy hop palate and a big pineapple sweetness in the second half. Good dry lingering bitterness. Another good uinta beer.

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - MAR 26, 2012
Poured from the corked and caged bottle a reddish coppery color with a thick head of meringue. The nose is full-on citrus rind and juicy citrus fruit with big dose of pine resin. The taste starts with pine resin and citrus rind. Pineapple and tangerine come next transitioning into a "bit o’ honey" caramel maltiness. The hops and pale malt flavors carry through to a moderately bitter ending. The 9.5% alcohol is actually pretty well restrained. One of my favorite double IPAs.
