17thfloor (2434) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 9, 2012
Hides the alcohol very well, nice aroma, tropical. Flavor starts a bit slick, buttery, balanced pine and citrus, tasty, not the freshest so Iím sure there are a few points to give here.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 9, 2012
Bottle. Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma is lightly tropical and Citric with a noticeable sweet caramel and bread dough. A touch stale. Flavor starts stale caramel buttery notes picks up a lightly citric and piney hops with some herbal bitterness. Medium body and a crisp carbonation. Not great

22oz bottle in a shaker. Pours copper with a lacy off-white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, caramel malts, and some bread/dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent double IPA.

iugrad93 (266) - Indiana, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Clear copper pour with white head and decent lacing. Aromas of citrus, fruit, and floral. Taste is mild sweet on the front end, a bit fruity, and medium bitterness on the back end, with a slight bit of alcohol. Medium bodied, nice dry finish. Overall, I am impressed with this brew. The Dragonfly IPA is not my favorite, but the Double, with additional sweetness, is really pretty good.

Jriggz7 (117) - Indiana, USA - DEC 10, 2011
Aroma malty slight alcohol with very subtle hops. Color orange . Medium body with great malt sweetness up front with pine notes and citrus alcohol that resinates on the palate with bitterness joy. Great beer for money.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 25, 2011
Bomber from the big Big Red, Bloomington. After gallons and gallons of Dragonfly over the years, I was intrigued by the prospect of the big sibling. A lustrous bright orange with mild earthy cloudiness, it was pretty appealing visually, especially the big rocky head. Nose was a bit too hot and sweet perhaps. And the body was a smidge on the thin side, with a slightly too oily finish. Flavors, though, were pretty good, with the hops holding character without being too sharp and boozy (as I feared from the aroma).

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - SEP 18, 2011
Draught at the brewpub. Pours hazy orange with off-white head. The aroma is butterscotch and lots of fruity hops, some honeyish sweetness, some floral hops behind the fruit. The flavor is dense sweetness with a sort of chaotic hop profile. There is noticeable alcohol. The finish is marked with assertive bitterness that gets a pine note to it after a few sips. Ok.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
JoePeesie (878) - Long Lake, Illinois, USA - SEP 16, 2011
A little thin for an IIPA, but good none the less. pours an oragish golden brown with a thin white head. Nose and taste is a bit muted, and a touch boozy. I would have liked to see a stronger hop profile. I also prefer my IIPAís more oily. This was a good beer especially considering the 22oz was all of about $6. Worth a try but I would look hard for it.

draft... murky dark gold with a peach accent, really nice head though...the nose is all malt, double sugar cookie with a bit of pineapple, no hops... the taste is tolerable, medium pine resin from start to finish, nice feel... aight, best of the regular line up but doesnít make it hard try

Date: August 19, 2011 Mode: Bottle Source: BVery, Burnsville, MN Appearance: Orange, decent amount of head and large amount of sediment. Aroma: Citrus and pine. Flavor: Consistent with aroma, medium bodied and bitter finish. Other: I typically donít like doubles, but this was good as I didnít get an overly alcohol taste. It tasted more like an IPA to me.
