ccex (958) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 17, 2012
22 oz bottle pours a clear red/orange color with small off white head but good lacing. Smells of alcohol, caramel, bread and citrus hops. Aroma is pretty much the same, but not hoppy enough for my tastes in an IIPA. Tastes sweet with only slight bitterness in the finish. Body is medium without very much carbonation. Mouthfeel is sticky. A well above average beer, but below average for an IIPA, with all the good competition out there. I donít regret trying it but probably wonít come back.

Sample from a 22oz bottle. Clear orange - gold color. Thin off-white / khaki head. Dots of lace. Very light carbonation. Dry texture. Medium body. Light warmth. Very interesting hop aroma. Resiny, some grapefruit, sweet bread, some other hop aroma I canít pinpoint. Bitter taste, with a little alcohol heat but no burn. The aftertaste... Is long, citrusy. Kind of musty with the malts. Interesting DIPA

Well, this beer is structurally compromised, but still enjoyable. Grapefruit, green apple, pineapple all come through, but damn it is mostly alcohol. Not hidden at all! Harsh, but smoother than grain alcohol.

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Bottled March, 2011. Served in a Founders snifter. A: Pours a semi hazy amber color. A fluffy white head forms on the pour and sticks around for a bit. Leaves some nice sticky lacing. S: Some sweet caramel, candied sugar, some resin and some pine. Smells slightly boozy. The hops have certainly faded. T: More affirmation of the hops fading. Big malt backbone, slight resin. Some bread and booze. The hops are practically none existent. M: Medium bodied with a nice carbonation, but there are no real discerning flavors left on the palate. O: At this point itís a slightly malty and bread beer with some slight herbal and pine hops at the backend. This bottle wasnít fresh in terms of DIPAís, but it seemed to fall off pretty quickly.

Bottle shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt! This beer appears a dark orange hue. There is a half inch of head that leaves a lot of lacing on the glass. The aroma is pretty weak. The smell is of a strong IPA with a substantial amount of malt. My suspicions are confirmed: this is an IPA that is relatively balanced in terms of hops to malt. I would prefer less malt and more hops, of course. Iím missing the floral, citrus, pine, etc. - the things that define an IPA to me. The taste is not astringent or unappealing, per se, but again, this beer lacks the defining characteristics associated with the style.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2012 Poured a one finger quickly dissipating head. Apperance is a beautiful dark orange, hazy with yeast floaties from the bottle conditioning. Some pine, grapefruit and some tropical fruit on the nose. Grapefruity bitterness with a nice mouthfeel. Itís a nice drinking beer.

Seriously Hoppy with a clean finish. The aroma draws you in if you like IPAís. Upland has found a winner with Double Dragonfly. Enjoy every single drop every single time!!

22oz bottle orange/amber color with big off white frothy head. Decent bit of lacing. The aroma is a light citrusy almost lemony smell. Flavor kind of shocked me I was expecting more in hops being a dipa. The flavor is not over powering no taste of alcohol and quite mild on the hops. Even after it got warmer the flavor didnít change.
