32oz growler, kegged Nov 24, 2012. Served at around 45F.
Pours lightly hazy amber with a one finger white head that quickly recedes to a wispy cap and leaves some spotty lacing behind.
Aroma is orange, tangerine citrus, some apricot, decent amount of caramel malt. Good, but not great strength.
Flavor is orange citrus, light apricot, fair bit of caramel malt, mild sweetness in the middle, moderate to good bitterness, mild alcohol.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, oily, bit sticky, good carbonation.
OK Double IPA. More caramel malt than I care for in the style, though.

Feeling bloated and buzzed from a big German meal and several different pints, I decided i couldn't leave without trying their flagship DIPA, what kind of hop head would i be if i didn't?
A - poured the bottle into a standard pint glass, very hazy golden orange, short head retained decent
S - Big citrus, mild pine, cracker graininess, hints of perfume at the back
T - big hop presence mostly of citrus and perfume, some pine and resiny flavours are more subtle, grainy malt tries to hold its own, and light boozy sweetness
M - realtively creamy with solid carbonation, an oily resiny feel, medium hop bitternesss, warming booziness late in the finish
O - while this was a bit of work to get through on a full stomach i am glad i savoured it last, great to see a small brewpub take on this style and come through with something worthy

500 ml bottle. No date detectable.
Sparkly, golden orange body. Two fingers of thick, frothy, dirty cotton white head. Great lacing. Lots of tropical fruits, mandarin orange, and piny hops on the nose. Sugary, cookie-ish malts underneath.
Herbal hop bitterness and metallic notes up front. Hop flavors are in charge here, with lots of mango, pineapple, and citrus. Becomes more resinous and dank near the finish. Sugary, fruity malt plays bass. Drier finish, with some lingering fruits and herbal hop bitterness. Medium-full body with a nice, creamy feel. Very nicely done!

Beer #21 in my great Utah Brew Hunt.
This is a pretty lookin' beer. Nice cloud to it and a decent head. Flavor profile is very thick malts with assertive enough hop tones to keep some semblance of balance. Hops are salty and bitter with strong earthy tones. This is a punch in the mouth kind of beer. Less rounded than it could be, but that's a trivial complaint. The beer is solid.

Pours a yellower color than most big IPAs. Nice white foam, and pleasantly carbonated. Flowery nose with a touch of resins.
Big hop presence, but not excessively bitter. A very interesting variation on the DIPA theme. Rich and nicely sweet. It's like a Tripel with a big dose of hops. Rather sharp but thoroughly drinkable. Big fruity flavors of mango and pineapple. Dries out in the aftertaste but the aromatic flavors stay with you.
The photo is the old label before they changed the name from "Elephant." From the 500 ml bottle purchased at the Sugar House state store in Salt Lake. Interesting and worth a try.

Classic DIPA appearance in the form of an amber colored, clear, body, foamy, large head, and gentle strings of streamers. The smell was floral, grassy, and citric. The taste was a bit more vegetal than I was looking for. Green apples, grapefruit, an lemon rind were evident in the taste. There was a considerable level of bitterness throughout. Mouthfeel was medium thick and chewy. Not very memorable.

Served at the Bayou Salt Lake City's biggest beer bar.
A: Amber lemon orange haze. Light white foam that clings the edge of the glass. There is a pasty copper glow when held to the sunlight.
S: Fragrant Chinook hops. Sweet amber honey combs. Light aromatic amber golden malts.
T: You can really taste 5 of the hop varietals with the first swallow. (this brew is made with 6) There are midwestern sticky hops plowing through. This brew is a cross between a Stone IPA and Founders Centenial IPA. A nice yellow lemon crisp. Orange rind grapefruit, sweet orange peel and Dominion Hop Mountain sticky pine cone resins.
M: THis is the best part. This is one very smooth highly drinkable Double IPA. It feels like its served with a nitro tap in a bottle! It's crisp with a lavender tongue feel!
O: This is one solid ass DIPA. Well worth the buy and try, it could be someone's favorite drinkable double IPA. Mine's Lagunitas Maximas btw, but thanks to JR and Mike for the recommendation when I was getting my meat and cheese on at Epic Brewery down the street. Keep truckin out of state for those highly sought after brews. Utah, your beer laws suck.

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a Central Waters snifter. Thanks to mrmarmot for muling this m-effer back.
A: Pours crystal clear golden color with the faintest amber notes in it. Aggressive pour leads to 1 finger rocky white head that takes a few minutes to disappear. Lacing is relatively non-existent.
S: Hop forward but it's entirely possible the hops have faded just a touch but they are still first and formost on the nose. Very nice citrus notes and a malt backbone that means business.
T: Follows the nose, brings a big time hop hammer and smooths it out with some balanced malt.
M: Creamy hop oil coating, nicely carbonated.
O: A solid DIPA. Nothing more, nothing less.

Strong and very hoppy aroma has a firm undertone of grapefruit and a hint of Mandarin orange. It pours a slightly hazy amber with a fairly thick and rather persistent cream-white head that leaves generous lacing. Flavor is very hoppy, strongly but not fiercely bitter, with a nice citrus undertone. Lively texture has good body. Maybe not the best Double IPA I have had, but certainly a worthy one. Elephant or Elephino, put it in your trunk if you like IPAs.
