I am staring at an empty bottle of Detour Double IPA from Uinta Brewing of Salt Lake City. It's a big bottle and I think it was emptied at about 2:20 am this morning. My first beer from Utah and it got drained over a mid-week middle of the night family bonding fest of Kids in the Hall DVDs. The bottle still smells swell, the muskier sort of DIPA as opposed to the orange marmalade type. A cumin sort of thing is still going on in there. Seedy spiced malty sweetness 22 months after being bottled according to the label. There was a dribble left in the bottle just now but a drib plus a bleary memory (almost as illustrated) does not make for something reviewable... does it? I mean I had it, I liked it and I remember it. Is it wrong to write that down?
Or is this something other than a review. A note that frames the truth of the sofa but also admits conditions were less than optimal. It should be enough for what it's worth. Ticking in a way, I suppose but not marking the moment is worse than reporting the recollection. So what if I was paying more attention to Cathy and Kathie or the Chicken Lady? I'd buy the beer again. BAers have respect.
