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

Bottle from Darbyís Liquor, Vancouver
No dating in the bottle. Red Amber color, hazy, with compact head. Mild aroma of citrusy hops, oranges, light talc. Lean mouthfeel, light residual sweetness; but the malt flavor lacks of depth, it has just some caramel, and the hops are not bright; resiny final.
Maybe an old bottle, but since itís not dated, I blame the brewery.
Boring. I wonít buy again.

brokensail (15271) - San Leandro, California, USA - AUG 23, 2014
On tap @ Laurelwood PDX. Golden colored beer with white foam. Nice pine and citrus peel aromas. A touch of apricot and resin, too. Sweet caramel malts are quite pronounced. Hints of grass, too. Flavor is rather astringent and bitter. A ton of pine and resin...some mild papery notes. Orange peel, apricot, and sweet caramel malts. Meh.

Bomber at 6.9%. Copper amber color with a thin beige head. Aromas seem floral, citrus and resin. Medium body with prickly carbonation. Flavor is roasted malt with a lot of hop. Finish is almost balanced but hops rule. Really good drink.

mcberko (12461) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 3, 2010
Sampled on tap at SIB, pours hazy golden orange. Aroma of hops and caramel malt. Flavour is more malty than the average IPA, with an obvious hop dominance. Not bad.

jercraigs (9253) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2010
2010-07-04. Crisp golden dark amber body, modest beige head and light lace. 3+ Huge leafy, weedy green hop aroma, vegetation dominates. 6+ Flavour is similarly green and leafy, mild citrus is lightly astringent, lemon seed like in the finish. 6+ Smooth average palate. Decent, heavy on the leafy character, which I donít love. On tap at Seattle International Beer Festival

3fourths (8989) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 20, 2008
22oz bottle pours rusty orange in color with a light haze. Fresh, green herb (mint, basil, thyme) scented hop nose, along with some pillowy, earthy but light yeast notes. Resinous, earthy, nutty hop flavor; some caramel and chewy maple malt flavors, but largely light to medium in body, nearly thin. Okay overall, could be better.

MartinT (8987) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 10, 2008
My Bottom Line:
A divinely boastful hop bouquet proffers piney, resinous jocundity as its grassy alluvia seep into tender and sweet cereals. This PNW IPA is so honest, I cannot help but want to converse with it more often.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the misty orange blond.
-The tantalizing hop perfume slightly outshines the already enjoyable flavor profile.
-Crushed nuts seem to surface from the malt character, which is a tad underdeveloped.
-Peppery, grassy, coniferous hop bitterness seals the deal and links with the compelling aroma.

Bottle; thx Mike!
