Green Elephant is green because it’s made from organic malts, and elephant because of the Amarillo, Ahtanum and organic Cascade hops. It’s medium-bodied with a subtle malt underpining and an explosive hop flavor and bitterness. Dang, the elephant is hoppy.

5000 (6650) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Bottle:   Dirty golden, sediment floats about, large rocky off-white head, patchy lacing, light carbonation.   Earthy hop aromas, a little soily.   Very earthy on the tongue, minor hop presense, a bit malty, slightly grainy, well balanced, and if you like earthy and/or organic like beers, this one is for you.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Has a bit of sweetness on the finish, more hop based bitterness versus being earthy.   Don’t get me wrong, it still feels soily and earthy on the finish.   Very organic, but also very enjoyable.

crackedmachine (479) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 4, 2009
A really good IPA. Pours golden orange with a decent white head. The aroma is heavy on Amarillo and Cascade hops. The flavor is mostly tasty hops, pine and citrus. Excellent example of a West Coast IPA.

hayduke (4929) - Eureka, California, USA - JAN 13, 2009
From a 22 oz bottle this poured a nice rich amber with a fairly fat off-white head and good lacing. Aromas of various hops, floral, pine, and citrus make this a delight for nose. Mouthfeel smooth and a bit oily. Favor is well balanced between malts and hops and there is a nice bitter finish. A very good IPA.

hopdog (11560) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2008
22oz bottle. Poured a medium and cloudy amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of floral hops, some citrus, and pine. Tastes of citrus, earthiness, floral, and some maltiness. Light to medium bitter with a lighter sweetness. Light lacing left on the glass.

Don’t really have much to add here except that I was shocked to find myself enjoying an organic beer this much. Very piney and smooth on the way down, I could drink a whole bunch of these in one sitting. If only all organics were created equal...

beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2008
Solid aroma of pine needles, oranges and malt. Pours a cloudy amber color with a thin white head. Good flavor of piney, citrusy hops with a competent malt back-bone and some bitterness in the end. The body is light to medium with an oily texture and gentle carbonation. This is a very pleasant IPA.

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - SEP 14, 2008
22 oz bottle via Liquid SOl. Pours a clear reddish amber with a large beige head. Nose is subdued but a nice floral/citrus aroma. The taste has a very nice hop profile..a perfect balance between grapefruit, orange, pepper, and a little earthiness with just the right amount of hoppiness carrying through. Carbonation is just right, body is perfect. Damned good beer.

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - SEP 2, 2008
Bottle from Market of Choice in Ashland, OR. Poured a copper color with a the aroma of citrus hops. Not being a big fan of overly hoppy IPA’s this one instantly became one of my favorites in the genre. The malt backbone balances the citrus hops almost perfectly. Great for just an regular IPA.

timfoolery (1126) - California, USA - SEP 2, 2008
From Market of Choice in Ashland, OR. Usually, organics just aren’t good, but this one had great flavor and a palate to boot. It was fuller in body than most IPAs (reminding me a little of TF Dreadnaught), although the hops were more citrusy than bitter pine. I actually loved this one for what it was: a very good, malty IPA.

nice looking IPA, does not live up to expectations. super soapy and citrusy with a strange spice and mintgrass conponent. very resiny and chewy but without a decent malt character to balance the extreme hop pine and citrus. its hoppy alright, but not in a good way.
