This week's Sunday Night Suds looks at Uinta's Detour Double IPA.
Like the artwork on the front label of the bottle, this is the last weekend of trips to visit Mrs KB and the kids at Camp M. To celebrate the end of the camp season (or maybe just because) we opened the Detour Double IPA and shared this premium Uinta beer with some of our friends as a melava malka.
As a Double IPA, this beer is not for those who dislike bitters. RL who joined us for the tasting quickly asked for something sugary to take away the bite (his loss). However the rest of us enjoyed the hop bite and the complex flavors which includes pine, citrus and a not too subtle reminder that the beer has a high alcohol content (9.5% abv).
The Detour Double IPA is sold in four packs and averages $10-12 per four pack. I found mine at the DeCicco's in Brewster which features six refrigerated cases of singles with only a slight mark up over the pack price (I believe I paid $3.49 for the bottle).
Uinta Detour Double IPA is certified kosher by the Orthodox Union and bears an OU on the label. For the experts' take on the Uinta Detour Double IPA please click here www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/1416/58754.
