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.

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..

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

appearance: Slightly hazy amber. pretty fat pillowy head on the pour that recedes quickly.
smell: Strong grapefruit up front. Some piney hints.
taste: Sweetness up front surprisingly, followed almost immediately by bitter grapefruit.
overall: Decent DIPA. Not a standout for me but decent enough.
