Beer added by: Wasatch on 08-18-2010

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.

This could have been a great beer... except that I don't like grapefruits. Damn the cascade hops!. It poured okay, but the head was minimal and what little there was faded in seconds. Color was a slightly hazy rich gold.. not bad at all. Aroma was slight, a little hoppy. Mouth feel not bad at all... but then came the hops. I love hops, just hate grapefruit off flavors and that pretty much ruined it for me. I think a lot of people will like this beer, especially if you are into cascade... just wasn't for me. Very hard to get past that to review the beer faithfully, so I pretty much called it even on this one. Don't want to slam it as they did'nt do anything wrong, just a difference in tastes..

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.
