In this beer blog, we are going to get into a beer from Uinta Brewing. The beer is called Detour Double IPA, which is part of their Crooked Line. If you read my earlier blog on their Uinta Hyve Ale, you are up to speed on the information on this brewery. If you have not, please read the first part of that beer post. Let us get into the beer.
This Double India Pale Ale is part of their 750ml bottle which is called Crooked Line. It is heavy in carbonation and has a dark amber copper color to the beer with a head. The smell is a citrus to earthy to the beer. The taste of the beer is the same as the smell. It has a nice crisp bitter finish. It is pretty drinkable for a beer with 9.5% ABV.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
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 character. Venture to pair with other spirited flavors such as those found in spicy ethnic foods.

In the end, this is one of my favorite beers from this brewery asides their Hop Notch India Pale Ale, which there is a beer post on this blog. I love the drinkablity of this beer. It has a nice hoppy taste but yet balance from the great malty backbone. It is extremely drinkable and dangerous because it is 9.5% ABV. This beer has affordable price at your local liquor store which makes it a value to us craft beer drinkers. This is a great beer and I highly recommend it. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
