Detour is a Double (or Imperial) IPA from the Crooked Line by Uinta Brewing Co of Salt Lake City. It’s a big beer, as DIPAs tend to be, at 9.5% ABV. The nose is floral, with a hint of pine. It’s a full bodied beer, and there are lots of hops. The middle is bitter with oak and pine and alcohol, with more of the same in the finish. Unita claims a dry finish, but I don’t find that to be particularly the case. Medium dry, maybe, and only because you can feel the alcohol evaporating from the back of your tongue. It’s a pretty straight-forward beer, not a lot of complexity, and I’m not a big fan, I’m afraid.
I give it a 2.8 out of 5
