COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

CapFlu (4781) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 17, 2015
Lasting frothy white head atop an orange coloured body. Nose of tangy pine needles. A tad too bitter for my liking. The malt balance is nice but the hops are overly sharp. Purchased at Planet Liquor.

eandjsedda (2) - Gresham, Oregon, USA - JUL 5, 2015 does not count
Appears red/amber. Coopery and smooth on the palate. We both enjoy. Can smell hops before you taste them. Mildish IPA flavor. Good aftertaste.

biirusaikou (1263) - - JUN 29, 2015
Draught at ACBE. Sweet malt and orange hops character, seems somewhat oxidized, bittersweet finish. OK but had higher expectations, would like to try it in mint condition.

fiulijn (16428) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 28, 2015
Bottle from Darby’s 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 it’s not dated, I blame the brewery.
Boring. I won’t buy again.

rejtable (1749) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2015
Pours amber, lots of head and lacing. Nose is sweet syrup, grapefruit, peach and earthy bitterness. Tastes medium bitter, light/medium sweet. Full sticky body with lively carbonation.

Koskela (403) - Marysville, California, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Grassy and floral hop aroma mix wit the sweet maltieness of this hazy orangish brew with a white head. A very well balanced but complex brew. I get the malty sweetness upfront with the bitterness battling through out the taste of this heavy/medium bodied brew. The hopieness is very green or grassy flavored. Seems more like an imperial ipa given the maltieness and th body.

reggiedunlop (3451) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Pours clear golden with a medium white head...heavy sheets of lacing. Aroma has grapefruit, rind, and pine. Flavor follows suit suit...very rindy and firm bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is dry and piney/resinous.

wheresyourball (539) - El Cajon, California, USA - AUG 25, 2014
On draft. Pours bright orange with medium white head. Nose is floral; flavor is quite hoppy with only light malt. Bitter finish. Didn’t think this was as good as workhorse IPA.
