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.

Let me start off by saying that I sampled several beers from this brewer over the past weekend... and all of them taste the same (in a way). There’s an underlying burnt-rice flavor to all of their beers that I just can’t get past. Bottle. Floral aroma? Not really... smells malty... too malty. Flavor: yep, it’s loaded with malts and burnt rice. Oh, what a disappointment when I was trying to get a friend to try his first IPA.

Ughsmash (7507) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 17, 2005
Draught @ Legends - Notre Dame. Poured a clear reddish-amber with a light off-white head. Nice lacing all the way down. Citrusy aroma, with some underlying sweetness from the malts. Crisp and citrusy (with pine notes) on the front of the palate. Light-to-medium bodied, with a little malty sweetness present. Finish was not well-balanced, and seemed to be bitter for the sake of being bitter. This was a really good brew.. until about halfway down.

Draft. Clear amber hue with medium white head. Medium sweet aroma with some floral. Medium body with well balanced finish. Medium sweet taste with floral and citrus.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - MAY 28, 2005
12oz - Bottled April 05 - Hoppy nose with floral citrus undertones. Copper color with consistent bubbles like champange. A medium head that quickly dissapates but leaves plenty of lacing. Flavor is a little disappointing. The hops aren’t real strong which allows the malts to take over. The palate is smooth and slick. It is a very drinkable and tasty session brew that would be a good introduction to the style.

frankenkitty (2006) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - MAY 5, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2006 Bottle from Cornfield. Incredible amount of <a href=www.ratebeer.com/><a href=http://www.workinlate.com/images/beer/LotsaFl suspended within a hazy, coppery body. A zesty, orange-citrus nose with floral notes, oregano and a milky background. A nice bite to start, then smooth & soft malts to a lingering light bitterness.

hopdog (11168) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2005
Bottle acquired in trade with TAR. Bottled on 4/05. Poured a medium, hazy reddish/copper color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of flowers, citrus, earthy, and caramel. Tastes of toffee, and caramel. All malts in the taste. Very lightly bitter. Lacking balance.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2005
This beer is all about aroma and finish. I love the smells coming off this pour...grapefruit, herbs, grass. The flavor however seems a little shy. The hop bitterness surprises in the strong, lingering finish. A liitle too timid for the style overall, though.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 26, 2005
This pours a slightly hazed apricot color with a bubbly off-white head. This is a very fragrant beer, an aroma of pine, grapefruit, floral and herbal hops present themselves nicely over a light caramel malt scent. The hops and malts are well balanced in the taste (perhaps more like an APA?), the increased bitterness appearing in the back of the mouth during the long finish. Nice brew, if not very aggressive for an IPA.

I think this beer in underrated. Had this on tap at a couple of bars in bloomington. Pours nice amber body with a thin off-white head. Smells nice and hoppy with a hint of citrus and flowers to it. Taste is a nice dry hop attack, not terribly bitter but I like the bitterness that’s there. Malts are present in the taste as well and are a bit more noticeable in the dry aftertaste. I like this beer quite a bit.

argo0 (13021) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 23, 2005
Clear amber body, off-white head, nice lacing. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit, some caramel, floral, light orange. Taste is medium sweet, grapefruit/floral/orange, some chocolate. Creamy medium body. Not an overly bitter IPA, just a well-balanced beer. Of course, when so many people expect a strong bitterness in their IPA, it really is no surprise the range of ratings for this one.
