COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Upland Dragonfly IPA is a malty and hoppy brew. Note the clean malty fullness on the front of the palate with fruity citrus overtones, attributable to our special hops. Dry hopping creates a floral aroma, and our use of bittering hops lends a strong bitter taste in the back of the tongue and throat.

Not a bad IPA. Mostly pine with some lingering citrus. Pours light orange with a thick white head. Tried at the Indy airport in 2016 with Matt and Guy.

bytemesis (6311) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 9, 2016
Tap. Pours clear pale copper, small beige head, good lacing. Aroma is really light, hints of pine and grapefruit. Flavor is light plus sweet, light plus bitter, muted flavor profile with pine and grapefruit hops, Bready malt hints of caramel. Medium body. NondeScript, but not flawed

Pours a cloudy amber-copper, with mid-sized head. Aroma of pine, grass, some citrus. Flavor fairly sweet, with balanced mix between the hops and malt. Nice citrus and pine flavors. Good burger accompaniment.

Fredis23 (564) - Hickory Hills, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2016
Slightly Hazy Brownish Orange Color, Big Foamy Head That Lasts And Leaves Lots Of Lacing. Surprisingly Just a Very Faint Aroma of Pine and Citrus. Malt, Resin, Pine, Bitter Hops. Strong and Long Lasting Bitter Aftertaste with very light Sweetness at the end. Enjoyed It. Nice. Recommended.

Light. More refreshing than flavorful. Smooth. With a lot of un met potential. Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a shaker ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A descent ipa but nothing really special. Good and citrusy with a nice nose. Still a darn good beer.

Sammy (10789) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2015
Better at colder temperatures. Hops there but not so tasty and balanced. Still drinkable. Can on the current roadtrip.

shigadeyo (3612) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 27, 2015
Floral, ctirus, and honey in the aroma; dull pale amber color with a fleeting off-white head; some almond and caramel maltiness, very floral (almost perfumy), some melon-like fruitiness, and a raw bitterness in the finish taht I just donít like; medium body, smooth; okay, not great; Iíve never really cared for this beer... the hop flavor profile is okay, but the bitterness flavor just isnít good and seems incongruous with the flavors of the beer.
