Brewed by:
Red Rock Brewing Company
Utah, United States

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..
