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.

Braudog (6014) - Phoenix, Arizona, 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 (1980) - Alexandria, Virginia, 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 (4034) - 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 (2093) - 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

zgaier (1652) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Pours a beautiful orange with a white head and hoppy aroma. Taste is sweet, of hops, pine, citrus, grapefruit, and floral notes which come together nicely with a bitter finish. Very good double IPA.

Eabf. Orange aromas follows through to the flavor. Spicey bitter finish and decent sweetness. Good but nothing incredibly memorable or extra ordinary.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 25, 2012
(bottle from Gription79!). Pours a hazy apricot color with massive eggshell head. Aroma is some resiny, musty dank hops along with some perfumey and somewhat citrusy hops. Taste is sweet with some bitterness. Medium to full bodied and almost sticky texture. Finish is quite dry and bitter. A pretty good DIPA.

peteinSD (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 25, 2012
Bottle from Craig - thanks! Pours a semi-hazy golden/orange with a large and frothy white head. Aroma is subtle but consists of clean and focused hop bitterness with bits of citrus and resinous pine over a dry malt backbone. Taste is dominated by a clean hop bitterness but there is also some pine and a malt backbone that presents as slightly bready with a touch of sweetness. The hop presentation is showcased in the taste. Mouthfeel is a little thick and sticky but perfectly appropriate for the style. Very solid, enjoyable IIPA.

Mcfa0779 (57) - SLC, Utah, USA - APR 12, 2012
Pours hazy golden. Hoppy pine and grapefruit nose. Taste is sweet malt with well balanced grapefruit bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium. A great IPA, less creaminess and maltiness then most double ipa's. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
