Elephant Rock IPA was one of two Veteran-owned CO beers bought courtesy of a special friend. It’s always touching when someone who isn’t a beer geek solicits the help of beer geek strangers so they can surprise you with a new brew. This IPA has an amber-orange color and citrusy aromatics. Grapefruit, caramel, orange, and pine sap hops. Medium-bodied feel and mildly crisp finish. Average flavors and textures for a well-hopped and well-malted IPA, but that doesn’t take away from the excellent balance and satisfying taste.

12oz can 3/15/16 (Courtesy of RSRIZZO)-38° in Shaker-Pours orange with a small off white head and a lot of floaties. Aroma of hops and citrus. Taste of the same. This light to medium bodied brew is well balanced and is quite tasty. Nice brew. Beaver (1867) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 28, 2015
12 oz can. Pours very murky hazy tea color with a very small head that quickly goes to a few bubbles after a vigorous pour.

The aroma is subdued - sweet worty crystal malt with a little fruit and piney hops.
The flavor is sweet sugary under attenuated crystal malt with some fruit and a bit of diacetyl and a grassy piney bitter finish. The mouthfeel is light bodied and watery with almost no carbonation.
Overall, not a big fan.
Tap at brewery. Pours hazy gold. Aroma is dank and resiny with some citrus and tropical fruit notes along with faint caramel. Flavor is hop forward and clean with a great blend of flavors and a sharp dry finish. Medium body. mcbain5000 (1) - - NOV 8, 2015 does not count
Scored a six-pack at Monument Cork N Bottle, a stone’s throw from Pikes Peak Brewery and Elephant Rock. Pours a cloudy golden honey nectar, with short head and very little aroma. Initial impression is of a piney resinous note, think conifer trees and citrus, supported by an underlying tone of sweet maltiness, which balances out any excessive bitters. A simple, no pretences palate which makes for an extremely sessionable IPA, and a welcome digression from all the punch-in-your-face overhopped IPAs out there. Quite quaffable in numbers. vandc01 (454) - North Branch, USA - AUG 25, 2015
Can brought back from Colorado by Todd.
Not a lot of aroma, but the taste makes up for it.
Not much at the front of the tongue, but a very nice lingering taste at the end.

Draft at the brewery. Pours hazy Amber with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like grapefruit, resin, pone hops, caramel, nutty malt, and booze. Medium body and low/medium carbonation. Smells like pine hops, resin, some grapefruit, caramel, and nutty malt. That1Guy (2240) - Colorado, USA - APR 8, 2015
16 oz can pours a very cloudy copper with a big, white, sticky head. Citrus, orange aroma with a bit of butter and a hint of oxidation. Not sure how old this can is. Orange and pine in the flavor with a bit of caramel sweetness. This is aight.
