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.

A bit too malty for me but a nice bitterness. Hard to detect the alleged dry hopping. A fine IPA but gets lost in the sea of much better ones. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Citrus hops, very tasty. Can relax and have a few or pour from a growler on a Sunday in Indiana.

akoeninger (477) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Orange color with a light floral hop aroma. The taste is malt then floral and earthy hops. Butter lingering finish that diminishes as the beer warms. Medium body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bronzan (126) - Windsor, California, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Almost no discernible aroma. Not much hop character. From a tap at TGI Friday's... It's likely too cold to bring out the flavor. Will let it warm up a bit and adjust score if it improves. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled in 8/2013. Pours a very hazy/murky golden orange color with a 2 finger dense cream colored head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, orange zest, lemon zest, caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, floral, grass, light pine, and herbal earthiness. Unimpressive and malt forward aromas with light-moderate hop presence; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, orange zest, lemon zest, pine, caramel, toast, floral, grass, and floral/toasted earthiness. Good amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, orange/lemon zest, pine, caramel, toast, biscuit, floral, grass, and floral/toasted earthiness on the finish. Pretty nice flavor balance and complexity of hop and malt flavors; with a solid and crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a mediocre IPA. Aromas were way too malt forward with weak hops; but the flavors were a bit more balanced and crisp. I had no problem finishing off the glass.

madvike (2805) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Bottle - Lightly hazy amber pour with a foamy off-white head. Nose is metallic with lightly floral and fruity hops. Dry pale malt. Taste is sweet and bready malt, a bit of citrus rind, some honey, and a bitter citrus finish. Lots of sweetness. Pretty warming. Slick and fairly thick with medium-carbonation. Too sweet for me.

tmoreau (2530) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2014
12 oz. bottle poured to a fest goblet displaying a hazed, deep, orangey amber color, with good persistence to both the creamy, off white head, and the wavy lacing. The aroma offered a little dankness at first, then decent maltiness, with a touch of sweetness, a bit of resinous pine, citrus, and some tropical scent. The taste presented some assertive, rindy, earthy, and lingering hop bitterness, a smooth, tempering malt content that created some light creaminess for the mouthfeel, and a medium body, with complementary carbonation. Sweetness remained on the tongue, the bitterness didn’t waver, and some dryness made an appearance at the finale. Maybe a bit too malty sweet throughout, imo. I doubt that it was age,(according to the label) but a solid IPA nonetheless.

Served in a bottle so I really can’t tell about appearance or aroma. Perhaps if I were to try a fresh pint in btown I could change it
