An amber gemstone with a Dragonfly trapped inside is a highly prized and extremely valuable possession. We want you to feel the same way about this amber ale.
Crafted using a blend of six malts and lots of American ‘C’ hops it is deep amber in colour with a floral/citrus hop aroma upfront. The initial flavour hit is resinous, citrus and pine followed by a rich biscuit and caramel maltiness and finishing with a lingering bitterness.
Dragonfly tastes great on its own or with lightly spiced pasta dishes, pizza or strong cheddars. Serve at 4C to emphasise the hops or at 12C for a fuller bodied, fuller flavoured experience. No additives, no adjuncts; just four top quality, natural ingredients: malt, hops, yeast and water.
Specifications: Malts: Maris Otter, Crystal, Vienna, Biscuit, Melanoidin, Flaked Barley
Hops: Magnum, Cascade, Columbus, Chinook
IBU: 40
OG: 1.046
ABV: 4.6%

Note: Until April 2014, contract brewed at Tryst.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Cloudy dark amber-brown coloured with a sweet tropical fruit and citrus flavour followed by a smooth pine and orange finish. Nice!

AshtonMcCobb (3398) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 8, 2015
On keg at the Bow Bar. Appearance - a lovely lava lamp colour. Red and orange all over. If the head had stayed this was a rare perfect 5 in Appearance. Nose - light red fruit then grapefruit and pine. Taste - more red fruits and biscuits. Bitter grapefruit and lime finish. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry and unforgivingly bitter finish. Overall - good but slightly too bitter for my palate.

BlackHaddock (4435) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2014
500ml bottle conditioned: 4.6% ABV. Poured at home into an Abbot Ale glass tankard. Poured a murky brown with a deep beige blanket of foam on top. Bitter hop feel to the nose and taste, chilled: became more malty as it warmed a little. Reminded me of some of the Californian Hoppy brews I have tatsed, so this is obviously a good try at that style. Impressed.

Scopey (8055) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle from alesela. It pours clear deep amber with a medium white head. The nose is caramel, wood, caramel, orange peel, tangerine and sherbet. The taste is bitter, pine, varnish, resin, caramel, grapefruit rind and a touch of soap with a rather dry-bitter finish. Light-medium body and moderate carbonation. Perhaps a touch watery, but nice bitterness nonetheless. Decent.

Almost clear amber beer, little pale tan head. Palate is smooth and with fine carbonation. Clean malt. Surprising amount of smoke, goes all right with the marmalade hops. Little dry malt before the finish. Not bad, not what I was expecting but not bad!
