Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

Availability: Year-round

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.

It smells great and looks great coming out of the bottle. Not too hoppy for a double IPA, but well balanced. The citrus flavor is mixed really well, not too overpowering but loaded with flavor. It's smooth but still has a bit of a kick, a little bit of malt to go with the floral citrus flavor. Alcohol is hid well. It has a very satisfying aftertaste and mouthfeel as well. Just an all around excellent beer, very drinkable but not "light", one of my favorites all around.

L: Pours a clear golden yellow with hints of orange, with a large creamy white head that sticks on top and nice rings of lacing. A very nice looking beer.

S: Sweet orange and grapefruit, some floral hops and some earthy malt notes.

T: Slightly sweet orange, strong piney bitterness, with some sweet caramel malt.

F: Heavy body, creamy carbonation.

O: This is a very average double IPA but still drinkable.

poured medium translucent amber with small head when poured carefully (i like retaining carbonation)
smell is of floral hops and light malt
taste is of floral hops and sweet quiet malt with a bitter finish, purrrrrrrfectly hoppy
a near perfect beer, i'm quite upset that it doesnt have an average of 90+

A fluffy, off-white froth covers this reddish-orange brew.

Has an interesting aroma of herbal hops, caramel and and apple.

Tastes of caramel and citrus up front followed by a subtle and smooth hop bitterness that lingers in the background and makes up with resilience what it lacks in punch.

Medium in body and not noticing much in the way of alcohol.

Not a hop bomb, but a good beer nonetheless.

4/24/16 (500ml bottle, Piper Down Pub, Salt Lake City) Very balanced in both aroma and taste, nothing really to knock here. A shame this isn't allowed to be served on tap!
