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.

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color with a decent enough head; a few strands of lacing line the glass

Smell: Grassy, pithy and piney, with a touch of caramel

Taste: The touch of caramel underpins the hops from start to finish but is not obtrusive; the hops make an interesting progression, starting with grapefruit and then developing piney and grassy tones; the finish has a lot of aspirin, which I associate with the Amarillo

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A nice DIPA though I thought the finish a bit harsh

Thanks, benkuhns, for the opportunity

Pours a deep hazy amber with a nice finger of lovely white suds atop. Settles in, laces nicely.

Nose is caramel sweet and floral. Some grass and pineapple. Maybe mango.

Flavour has a bit more tropical fruit, but also a lot more of that blunt pine cutting through. Malts support the perfumed floral of the hops while adding counterbalance to the bitter side. I don't realize just what the three fourth note is until later that it's alcohol. Deceptive. Medium body, decent carbonation. Lasting finish of pith and pine. Comes together nicely. Would love to try it on tap. Glad I grabbed it!

There was a run on these at the state store. Had to try one to see what the buzz was all about. Very good double IPA from this SLC brewer. I should have picked up more than just one. I highly recommend this one if you can find it.
