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.

Bottle at Salt Lake Airport--Hazy amber, fluffy off white head. Soft bitter floral grassy notes with lighter waves of citrus peel and dried malt throughout. Well balanced from start to finish. Medium bodied and smooth. Utah has come a long way. Impressed...

rajendra82 (952) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Classic DIPA appearance in the form of an amber colored, clear, body, foamy, large head, and gentle strings of streamers. The smell was floral, grassy, and citric. The taste was a bit more vegetal than I was looking for. Green apples, grapefruit, an lemon rind were evident in the taste. There was a considerable level of bitterness throughout. Mouthfeel was medium thick and chewy. Not very memorable.

This beer was recommended to me at a restaurant. It turned out to be a good decision to take the waiter up on it. The beer poured a hazy golden. The aroma was all IPA. Once you take a sip however the beer didn’t have that big IPA bite that you expect. It did have a nice and smooth citrus flavor however. I really liked it and would recommend it in the future.

unclemike (2222) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JUL 2, 2012
poured a hazy orange wiith the most amazing aroma of hops, citrus, hops, orange peel, hops and grapefruit. For such a hoppy beer in the aroma the hops are mild with a nice citrusy/orange taste

Braudog (5647) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUL 1, 2012
Bottle, served at the Park City location. Pours medium orange and bright with a great big head. Nice nose of orange citrus bloom. Drinks with a fun boil of acidic hop, and slightly tangy. Drinks nice and light though. (#4631, 6/30/2012)

Nickls (1829) - SE DC, Washington DC, USA - JUN 13, 2012
Bottle. Creamy eggshell head on a mostly clear straw orange. Nice pungent, dank, and grapefruit hop aromas. Just a touch of honey sweetness in the flavor, but very clean with pine, resin, and an herbal dank finish. Medium velvety body. Very fresh, and very good.

Cybercat (3281) - Georgia, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Strong and very hoppy aroma has a firm undertone of grapefruit and a hint of Mandarin orange. It pours a slightly hazy amber with a fairly thick and rather persistent cream-white head that leaves generous lacing. Flavor is very hoppy, strongly but not fiercely bitter, with a nice citrus undertone. Lively texture has good body. Maybe not the best Double IPA I have had, but certainly a worthy one. Elephant or Elephino, put it in your trunk if you like IPAs.

Westmeister (1733) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Bottle. Poured cloudy copper/orange with an off white head. Nose was citrus, some pine and a touch of grain. Taste was lighte citrus and peeks of tropical fruit, with some earthiness and malty finish. I quite enjoyed this one.

Beautiful orange pour, outstanding. Nose is citrus predominately grapefruit and pine. Taste is all flavor, full of citrus with nice bitterness. Finish is bitter and lasting. Nice gem of a beer from Red Rock ! Quaff Score 9 / 10
