Notes/Commercial Description:
Red Rock's Elephino (el-uh-fine-oh) Double India Pale Ale is an American style IPA. Its intense citrus, floral and perfume-like, resinous and piney aroma come from the use of a copious amount of American hops. This beer is double dry-hopped on whole leaf Amarillo hops for a vivid, fresh aroma. The huge hop profile is backed up by a malty sweetness that lends a hand in this fine creation's balance.

500 ml bottle at the brewpub. Pours a deep cloudy orange color with a thick white head. The aroma is great; rich simcoe, fruity, apricots and pine. The flavor is very nice; slightly bitter, citrus, quite fruity, light pine. A raw bitterness lingers in the finish. Very enjoyable. Keep these beers coming Red Rock!

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Chill hazed amber colored ale with a small white colored head.

Smells strongly of northwestern hops with a strong fruit aroma. Pineapple is the strongest scent here. Passion fruit, and mango are in there with a much fainter grapefruit and orange aroma.

$tarts out malty with a woody pineapple taste. Flavor stays dry. Strong tea and tropical fruit. Bitterness is about medium for the style. Flavor just isn't as good as the scent with this one.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a good beer but not a great one. They just need to make it taste like it smells.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #63 (Apr 2012):

LOOK: Bright golden; lovely lace

SMELL: Grassy, grapefruit pith, pine cone, catty, bready grain, yeast, clean esters, guava

TASTE: Citrus rind, mint, clean booze, pungent hop bitterness, aspirin, dried grass, nutty yeast, bread crust, ripe tropical fruit, piney; dry, bitter finish

Balance was not the intention here—the brewer was spot-on when they said “sensory overload.” If we had to gauge the IBUs, they would likely score past the human threshold in bitterness, but not enough to cloud out the flavor. Enjoy, hopheads! This one is for you!
