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.

joeneugs (3121) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 25, 2011
Tasted 1 month from the bottling date. It pours dark orange with an orange head. The aroma is caramel, pine, some minor citrus and tropical fruits and brown sugar. The flavor is nice with a solid malt base and potent, piney, sweet and resinous hop flavor and finish. Very good if a bit heavy on the caramel malts.

BrotherGrendel (787) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 15, 2011
Bright orange, brilliant clarity, big thick head. Nose is danky pine resin and alcohol heat. Flavor is big grainy malts with a biting bitter hop presence and resiny citrus flavors. Medium carbonation and thick texture. Overall, a very smooth and flavorful DIPA with a malty presence to match the big hops.

750ml. Pours dark amber with nice head. Fair amount of lace. Hints of banana and pine. Light on hops but somewhat strong on alcohol. Meh.

mixmasterob (883) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 14, 2011
Poured a pretty amber with a one and a half finger white head. Left a lot of lace, head faded slowly. Aroma was a nice hit of resiny pine hops, the malt came through as well, some bready characteristics, light sweetness. Flavors were a bit more malt forward, lots of caramel, piney hops too, the a pretty big bitter finish. Sweetness throughout. Piney, resiney from top to bottom with a big malty sweetness that was a bit too much. Not too shabby but reminded me of something from Southern Tier.

First beer I have had from Uinta Brewing Co. The appearance and is failry standard for a double IPA. The aroma is full of hops and light malts , but it also contains a noticeable alcohol scent. The taste is very well balanced and has somewhat light carbonation, but it doesn’t hurt the overall flavor. Decent beer

keepersj12 (2664) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - APR 10, 2011
Bottled on 12/13/2010. Pours a clear amber with small off white head. The aroma or lack of is surprising given the hops involved. It has a bit of bread and some malt. The flavor however is a different story. Malty sweet to start and then a hop explosion. Very dry and refreshing for the style. Very good.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 8, 2011
750ml bottle. Pours a beautiful crystal clear amber with a big frothy beige head that shows superb lacing as it meanders down to a thick cap. Aroma is a combination of light citrus with pineapple and lemon zest and a healthy dose of floral pine hops. There is also a lightly spicy character and more than a touch of caramel malts. The taste is a little lighter on citrus than the nose and really amps up the spiciness with some herbal hops and alcohol lending additional burn on the palate. There is a biscuity malt backbone with a dry, boozy finish. The mouthfeel is highly carbonated and pretty hot given the less than 10% ABV. The look and smell of this one are nice but the taste leaves me wanting a bit more of the citrus hops that the aroma promised.

tommann (2633) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2011
750ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a large, tight head. Aroma is piney hop oils, mango and a little banana. Taste starts with some hops and caramel and a medium bitter hoppy finish. Easy drinking, not a in your face hop bomb.
