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.

Rather plain. Moderatly hoppy, hints of fruitiness lemon and grapefruit perhaps. Nothing too interesting, but not at all bad.

This starts off hoppy and, towards the end has a warm hoppy finish, but in between, itís all sweet and toasty bread malts. Interesting, but itís not doing anything for my hop craving. Will try some more and re-evaluate

A great IPA. Had on tap. Quite deep, reddish color with a moderate head. Smooth, hoppy, and oh so good. A really good beer that I look forward to having again.

burgerlicious (308) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUN 28, 2004
The aroma had a strong hoppy smell which carried over to a good, sharp bitter aftertaste. The head was VERY big. I donít usually go for IPAs, but Iíd wager to say that this is the PERFECT example of what an IPA should taste like.

irishsnake (355) - Oakland, California, USA - JUN 23, 2004
pours a hazy orange-amber, with a good head that descends into a nice collar and lace. nose is hoppy, but more like a West Coast pale. hops are typical domestic-Cascade? flavor is nicely hoppy, with some malty sweetness. bitterness is good and reasonably restrained. easy to drink; an all around mellow IPA, but a bit to mild for the style.

igneous1 (1507) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - JUN 23, 2004
Deep amber/brownish color, lasting beige head. aroma has both floral and citrus hops, moderate caramel malts, and is quite balanced. flavor lightly to mildly bitter, lots of caramel malts, vegetal earthiness in the finish.

Terminus (3328) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - APR 25, 2004
12 oz bottle-pours a dark orange hue with a nice smooth off white head. fantastic lacing! aroma is metalic with some earthy hops and malts. flavor is smooth and crisp, but pretty malt dominated for an IPA. very creamy mouthfeel and finsih is pretty solid. a good british style ipa. thanks to Atpayne for the bottle

DocLock (8376) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2004
Thanks to atpayne for this one. Pours pumpkin pie colored, with good head and lacing. Nice malty, toffee aroma with some hops and cognac. Tastes malty, bitter, with a slightly dry, malty, hoppy, creamy finish. Very good IPA.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - APR 16, 2004
Pours a light amber color with small head. I've had this beer before and it seems different than I remember. The aroma is more malty than I remember and the taste has some citrus bitterness, but displays more maltedness than one would expect from an IPA.

Just to the brown side of gold. Strangely, no appreciable hops in the nose, but on the tongue, the bittering hops are assertive. Big, airy bubbles maintained the appearance of a head, but uneven. ABV not stated, but likely substantial.
