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.

hayduke (3582) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 4, 2012
This is my second beer from this brewery and again it disappoints. From the State Liquor store in Salt Lake City, UT this came back with my brother Rick. He did not like it either. Pours a gold color with haze and a good sized white head. Nose is strange, and not much citrus shows but some pine. Medium body. Somewhat acrid mouthfeel. Flavor is bitter and the finish is as well. Almost seems spoiled. Drinkable, but barely.

EdInSaltLake (727) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - OCT 20, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2013 8/9/13: Citrus, peppery hop aroma, with light doughy malt. Similar hop flavor, with a peach-y finish. Firm bitterness, and sweet, bready malt in the background.

Strong hop flavor and aroma: Spicy, tangerine. Firm bitter flavor, with some light malt: Sweet, bread, a little caramel. Lingering bitterness, with some nice apricot/citrus/spice in aftertaste. Mouth-tingling goodness...

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Serving: 500 ml. bottle via trade from Sledutah. It pours a slightly hazy amber color. The nose is a mix of pine resin and tropical fruit notes. There is a big malt profile with the caramel notes working against the astringent hops and tropical fruit notes. A little sweet but good.

rollinsr (415) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - OCT 2, 2012
Pours a very light golden color with two fingers of frothy-white head. Aroma is sweet caramely citrus. Flavor is very sweet with a little hint of pine and grapefruit bitterness. This is a very good Double IPA that has the best of both the bitter and sweet worlds.

August 23, 2012 - bomber shared by sledutah with me, Mes&Sim, ChrisO ... others. Cool label. Hazy gold with a huge fluffy white head. Floral, somewhat boozy aroma, with onion? Taste - ooh, nice - straddles the line between BW and DIPA - fairly malty, complexly bitter, a little boozy (still some onion in that hop melange) - has a real citrus zest bite to it. Average body, good carbonation, fairly long bitter finish. Nice - lots of different hop character competing all at once.

Terminus (3329) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Bottle-purchased at the brewery Murray location Aug 2012-pours bright deep orange with a small soapy white head. nose is alcohol and pine, bigtime pinesol, which i actually like. mostly pine and lite sweet alcohol on the nose however. flavors are big sweet hops/malts, consisting of pine, resin, sweet malts, and huge resin on the finish. a pretty standard IIPA however, very good for the style. long piney/woody finish with sweet undertones. this is a very solid IIPA , totally making up for this breweries shitty 4% beers at the bar Iratings to come soon) . Im just glad this was good, especially for the money.

Leighton (13578) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2012
Bottle shared at Craft, many thanks to Craig. Pours hazy gold with a sturdy, white foam head. Big, sugary grapefruit nose. Sweet flavor though lightly drying with pale malts, further grapefruit and other, rindy citrus. Full bodied with average carbonation. Fairly sticky, resinous on the finish, more grapefruit. Good DIPA.

Orange yellow with decent, somewhat bubbly, white foam head, lacing to glass. Nice bitter hops aroma, like the taste hoppy all over. Good long lasting bitter aftertaste. Good beer, moreover as I am drinking this at the brewery. (Salt Lake City 201208)
