COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Red Rock’s Elephant Double IPA is enormous! Six different hop varieties combined with the finest malts and double dry-hopped for a massive sensory overload.

I was told this was their most popular and I can see why. Aroma was superb with sweet hay and floral scents. Great flavor as well with a dry hoppy finish. This Dbl IPA is an excellent value and considerably better than others of the same style in the SLC area.

Aroma is rather subtle but palate is huge. Resin and spice ride a finely tuned bitterness to deliver an impressive amount of flavor and character. Hop expression and mouth feel are rather complex and evolve through the finish. Malt character contributes significantly to complexity but remains less than obtrusive allowing hops to shine. Outstanding beer.

ads135 (2890) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Surprisingly well balanced considering the level of hopping. High alcohol and bitterness masked by the caramelly sweet backing. Winchell brought this beer back to Lawrence with him from SLC in 2013.

Fruity grapefruit nose. Crisp and clean finish, taste of citrus, grapefruit, and slight orange. Very easy to drink. Mild bubbles with a hint of tartness and fresh hoppy note.

Courtesy of douglas88. Cool German style half liter bottle pours murky copper with off tan head. OK, what did you send me Doug? Is this Exponential Hoppiness from Alpine or something. Good lord it smells amazing! I get full assertive levels of spicy hops, fur tree, earthy hops, pine, some rich citrusy grapefruit and slick malt sweetness pulling everything together. Wow! Was not expecting this. The taste has a robust load of hop flavor from spicy hops to grapefruit hops to a truck load of pine hops and rolling into some bitter pine resin. The river of sweet malts undulating underneath provides a great base to the flavor experience. This has loads of varied hop flavor goodness with sharp pulses of hoppy bitterness coming through here and there. World class brew here.

Shared with ibrew2or3. thanks Dave. What a gem this one was. amber color, tan head. amazing hop aroma, this is indeed a massive mastodon like hop crushing experience. lots of pine, grapefruit, got watermelon as well. This is not doing it justice, but, a perfect nose, huffing a whole pine forest in a glass, very fresh. Last DIPA that left such a mark, was Alpine Exponential Hoppiness, this one is just as fantastic. flavors are identical, thick hoppy palate, i keep geting some fresh watermelon mixed in with outstanding dry hopping. piney hops, lots of tropical fruits, some bitter citrus and grapefruit, while keeping a mild malty character.

500ml bottle from Douglas88. Nose is pine, a bit of sugary caramel, and grapefruit. Cloudy orange with a medium, lightly lacing, pale yellow head. Flavor is bitter grapefruit, a citrusy sweetness, and some caramel in the background. Finishes nice and bitter.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2013 8/9/13: Citrus, peppery hop aroma, with light doughy malt. Similar hop flavor, with a peach-y finish. Firm bitterness, and sweet, bready malt in the background.

Strong hop flavor and aroma: Spicy, tangerine. Firm bitter flavor, with some light malt: Sweet, bread, a little caramel. Lingering bitterness, with some nice apricot/citrus/spice in aftertaste. Mouth-tingling goodness...

Poors a hazy orange, no head, mild lacing. Smell is very dank with a bit of pine. Nice bite to the pallet, note of apricot.
