EamonTheGreat (143) - USA - JUL 27, 2014
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

22 oz bottle from notes. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor are skewed toward the malts; caramel and lightly toasted, sweeter orange citrus, honey, very little bitterness at any poin. I definitely want to see more bittering hops in a DIPA.

22oz bottle 4/13/14 (Crown Liquors #15-Fishers)-51° in Shaker-Pours a clear light to medium amber with a small off white head. Aroma of hops and slight malt. Taste of the same. This lighter bodied double ipa has potential but is not there.

Pours amber with ok head and lacing. Some citrus and a little malt, but comes off a little astringent rather than bitter. Bottle thanks to bmoosey.

hotstuff (4092) - Indiana, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Rated on 8-28-2010 at JK O’Donnell’s in Fort Wayne, IN. This draft beer has a small tan head with a short retention, transparent orange body, no visible carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma consist of light caramel malt, citrus and pine hops. The taste is bitter, light caramel malt, citrus, pine hops, and has a semi-dry short finish. The palate is smooth and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is a hop heads delight as the hops are upfront in the aroma and in the flavor as well they should be for this beer style. This is a straight forward beer as far as noting the various aromas and flavors. It is worth trying if one likes hoppy tasting beers.

Floral hops, alcohol, somewhat of a lingering aftertaste. Decent brew, although I prefer the Dragonfly IPA.
