Uinta Brewing Company Crooked Line Detour Double India Pale Ale

The Uinta Brewing Company is in Salt Lake City, Utah and was established in 1993.  Crooked Line is their higher alcohol series of beers.

This 9.5% ABV beer pours a glowing dark orange-copper-amber in color, nearing a hint of ruby, slightly hazy.  There is a small head of off-white foam that leaves sticky lacing of light density down the glass.  The aroma is fruity, zesty, citrusy, strong tea, a bit of funkiness.  The taste follows the aroma, like strong iced tea with plenty of lemon and a bit of sugar.  The finish is dry and bitter, yet light for its bold flavor.  Good, interesting, but not amazing.
