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.

Dark golden color with solid foam. Classic hop profile, similar to their Hop Notch but a much stronger malt base due to the higher ABV.

onceblind (4112) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Cloudy orange under a foamy light ivory head with lots of lace. Pleasing aroma of orange citrus and earthy floral hop resins, perhaps a bit of pine as well. Bitter flavor that is almost balanced by a strong back of caramalt, but with tons of earthy and fresh hop resins, featuring pine and leafiness with a big semisweet orange zest hop tone. Big and leafy bitter with a little acidity, with a sweet orangy finish.

Maxbier (274) - Maryland, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Ruby copper pour with big tan head. Sweet tropical hop aroma. Sweet malt up front with apricot nectarine mango hop flavors. Big bitter hop finish. When the bitterness fades there is a sweet malt linger. Very enjoyable DIPA.

Uinta Detour DIPA doesn’t live up to hype for me. Dark amber pour with a thick tan head. Fairly strong fruity aromas are nice. The tropical fruit flavors start to come out in the taste but are quickly masked by a strong alcohol note and overly pine hop character and a bitter aftertaste. Detour is definitely not the best in the DIPA category.

Dank hops and a fairy thick brew. I like it but not for the price, as its a good iipa priced higher than many of the best iipas. Citrus peel and a fairly sweet malty base gives way to a big bittersweet finish. On tap tasted older and a little overly malty."

Poured from bottle. Copper color with off white head. Tropical fruit aroma with citrus and sweet dried papaya. Sweet tropical fruit start followed by big grapefruit and finishing with big resiny pine. Leaves my tongue tingling a little in finish. Thick sticky sweet mouthfeel. Really nice brew!

Big sweet tropical notes, big citrus and candied fruit. A big smelling beer. Have I used the word big enough? The taste is nice and bitter. Lots of tropical fruit, resinous hops and a sweet malt backbone. Good stuff. Some underlying garlic too. Great double IPA.

McBeastie (16) - Florida, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Piney hop aroma upon pouring but the alcohol smell increased as beer warmed. Earthy spicy-ness on the palate with a long bitter finish. Copper colored with a thin, sticky head that laces briefly. Surprisingly subtle for a 9.5% Imperial IPA. My first from Uinta. Looking forward to more.

Darwenus (554) - Virginia, USA - SEP 2, 2014
This is a damn good imperial IPA. It pours a really clear amber color, with a lot of sticky suds. The aroma is sweet cereal malts behind a really bright citrus hop character. Apples, pine, and mellow bread notes in the flavor. This beer was really good.

UncleKorm (826) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 1, 2014
On tap poured a clear orange-copper hue w/ a small foamy white head. Moderate malty aroma. Initial flavor is moderate sweet w/ a moderate bitter finish. Tastes are orange, malt and straw. Full bodied and balanced mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
