Uinta Detour Double IPA

This is a 9.5% ABV double India Pale Ale from the Uinta Brewing Company of Salt Lake City, Utah. Their brewery uses solar and wind power. It has 95 IBU's and is a year-round release.

The beer pours a deep copper and amber in color. There is a tall, thickly foamy head of off-white to very light tan that leaves sticky layers of lacing down the glass. The aroma is hop forward, lushly fruity, juicy, tropical, passion fruit. The taste is a blast of bitter, juicy, ripe fruits over a healthy bed of strong caramel malt. The beer drinks smooth, round and full, with a light tingle of carbonation. All around this is a pleasant drinking DIPA.
