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.

joeneugs (3106) - Livermore, California, USA - JUL 5, 2014
500 ml. Bottle. It pours a clear golden color with a white head. The aroma has some citrus, grass, onion, orange and a little dank. The flavor is grassy with dank and onion. Some orange and citrus as well. Malt character is slim to nil. String bitter finish. Very good stuff.

marcus (6303) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Pours clear golden with a modest beige head and a malt and citrus aroma. There is a hearty mixed malt flavor with lots of citrusy hop bitterness.

brenn79 (1467) - Idaho, USA - MAY 16, 2014
500 ml bottle- Pours hazy golden with a three finger white head that lasts. Aroma is spicy hops, citrusy, malt. The taste is citrus, light caramel malt that’s not too distracting. Smooth and drinkable, light on the palate.

Kinz (3251) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 20, 2014
Poured a light orange, slight haze, compact white head. Aroma was a blast of citrus and pine hops, light caramel malt background. Flavor was a match, good bitterness on the finish. A touch on the light side of things with the body, made it almost refreshing somehow. Solid, glad I picked this one up to bring back from Utah.

bhiner41 (180) - La Grange, Illinois, USA - APR 10, 2014
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.

lambicboy12 (38) - salt lake, Utah, USA - APR 2, 2014
1- Piney, almost skunky. Low caramel, some bread dough. 2- Medium straw with a white lacey head. Crystal clear, 3- Big pine hop flavor, followed by a succinct hop bitterness. The malt sweetness is there and cleverly hidden. 4- Medium to full body with a hoppy slick texture. Many small rising bubbles lead to a medium-high carbonation level. 5-I quite enjoyed this beer. As it warmed, the skunky character made for a more citrus hop character. I could drink many of these.

stonestack (2) - Utah, USA - APR 1, 2014 does not count
Bottle from local liquor store. Sweet citrus aroma, with an orange hazy pour. Big hop flavor with a crisp light finish. Easy to drink

   AROMA 10/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 18/20
Redtown (4) - - MAR 9, 2014 does not count
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.

3.7
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 17/20
Strykzone (4781) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Bottle from Hayduke. This pours with some haze in the darker golden beer. A sticky lacing remains after the foam falls. Some classic IPA aromas of citrus and tropical fruits combine to make what could be something that hangs from a car’s rear view mirror. The blast of hops tasted is much bigger. They seem to be both wet and dry. Malts are there and are big but the focus here is on hops. I like it.

3.2
   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
ryecatcher (718) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy, golden-orange, smallish white head, so-so retention (no idea how fresh this bottle is). Nose is some citrus, oranges mainly, but more malt than hops. Mouth is medium-full bodied, citrusy hops and malt up front, some hints of peach and mango, then some toasty bread, pineapple and a medium dry finish and a real lack of bitterness considering all the hops proclaimed on the label (again, no idea how old this is). Not bad, but certainly not the ’massive sensory overload’ I was promised.
