Notes / Commercial Description:
Green Elephant IPA has a mellow malt character that sets the backdrop for a big hoppy beast of a beer. Layers of hop flavor come from the copious amounts of hops used in this brew, soaking the beer with hop oil goodness; creating layers of pine and tropical fruits. This beer drinks so wonderfully that you have to be careful. This elephant can sneak up on you!
70 IBU / O.G. 16° Plato

22 oz bottle from Trader Joe in Salem OR $4.49 pours a a nice clear burnt orange coloured ale. Nice lively carbonation strings rise from the bottom of my glass. Large rocky,bubbly white head. Lots of citrus and herbal hop notes in the aroma, Almost like lemon drop sweeties used to like in Scotland. Taste is less sweet but the taste is of lemon,grapefruit and peach in the hops. Very exuberant. The caramel malt in the back ground prevents it going over the top. Nice smooth easy going mouth feel very nice for a summer quaffer. Nice beer so easy to drink for its strength. So be careful out there!

Huge fruity apricot and peach aroma, so thick is smells like a sweet dessert. There's a spicy grapefruit edge to the bitter finish. Medium body and overall it hits the high fruit then closes with drier, spicy hops. Cool IPA, well made. I'd buy another.

First time on tap. Hazy light amber with one inch of off white durable head. Modest lacing.
Smell is big whiff of piney hop oils. Malty aroma arrives later.
Taste is tropical fruit piney hop oil with a push back of sweet bready malts.
Mouthfeel is a bit low on carbonation could be due to bottom end of keg. Any it is fine and the bubbles don't get in the way of flavors. Long dry bitter finish leaves you wanting more.
Overall a huge beer for a 70 IBU IPA. Well recommended for hopheads.

On tap at Laurelwood 51st/Sandy 6.10.2010, $3 pint during happy hour.

Orangish amber hazy body, 1 finger white head, medium dissipation with very good lacking. Nose is more floral than citrusy. Hop forward on tastebuds, firm caramel malt backbone in the middle, piney bitter finish. Mouthfeel is not too effervescent, medium fullness. This is one drinkable IPA, noticeably different from Work Horse, and certainly different from the bottled version. Worth a try.

Nice coloring, creamy head, lingers for a bit. Smells like candy. Really sugary aroma; pleasing but...odd. hops are pronounced in an interesting way, it's not bitter and piney, more on the citrus side but even that isn't the best description. Best word that comes to mind is sugars. It tastes very sweet, but not in a malty way either. Very simple balance, but complex to pinpoint what's going on exactly. It keeps you coming back for more. Very good and refreshing.
