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

Great imperial IPA. This beer is well made with good hops, taste, and feel. Solid choice if available.

Bomber at World of Beer. Poured clear honeyed golden with a dense cap of off-white head. The aroma was sweet and juicy with grapefruit, floral notes, and a touch of honey.. warm, deliciously-inviting impression. The flavor found sweet caramel at the core along with some medium-skinned fruit meat.. moderate-plus bitterness around (grapefruit and floral, with lesser pine).. finished with a peppery kick over juicy malts and tasty bitters. Medium-plus bodied and very fresh on the palate.. spicy where it needed to be, and the balance was excellent. Id love another!

On draft at the Upland Brewery. This is much better that their regular Dragon Fly IPA. Maybe because it was super fresh and on draft. The aroma is strong in hop character with slight citrus and pine notes. Pours hazy amber with a medium white head and good lacing. This has a lot more depth of character that the original IPA. The hop malt balance is great. Quite bitter, but not overwhelming. One of the best Upland beers that isn't a sour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

10/23/10. Bomber. Aroma of sweet caramel malts and grains with hints of lettuce and citrusy hoppy hops - reminds me of fresh wort. More bitter on the flavor with subtle citrus, caramel malt, and tropical fruits. Tasty!

22oz bottle split. Murky, deep orange-brown color. Sweet piny hop laced orange totfee aroma. Steady off-white head. Resiny, full body. Chewy mouthfeel, with lots of toffee tones. Thick rich hoppiness, pine and orange tones. Quite subdued and drinkable despite the big flavors, a very nice creaminess to it. Balanced, rich, classy beer. Well done.

22oz bottle: Pours a clear deep orange with a clingy-lacing white froth of head. Has a fresh resiny pine and grapefruity nose with a lightly toasted caramel background. Starts with good fullness and light caramel sweetness with lots of juicy piny hop flavor and good bitter balance before a drier, citrusy bittersweet finish. A very nice Imperial IPA.

Nice hoppy, citrusy aroma. Color is very nice. Citrus notes continue into the palate along with plenty of hops bite. its nice and dry and is therefore pretty good with food from my standpoint. At 9.1 % alcohol, you get that alcohol burn at the finish, which may detract a bit from my overall score.

On tap, shiiit, this tastes exactly like tropical mango juice, no sign of alcohol here, mild but persistent bitterness. This is the ultimate beer for the non-beer-drinker, it goes down like juice, tastes like juice, is this juice? Mildly carbonated, seriously a fruity beer. ---- In the bottle it is not as satisfying.

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. Its a nice drinking beer.
