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.

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.

Orange-amber color with sediment present. Has an orange -pineapple citrus feel with a medium quick bitter finish.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - OCT 26, 2004
A thick frothy head with an orange-coppery cast that just begs to be drank. Hoppy in a non-standard way resulting from Ahtanum hops instead of the monotonus Cascade. A fresh hop taste at last! Toasted malts and an easy sweetness. A very perfumed and floral aroma. Palate is very clean. Unbelievable lacing. I’m a huge fan of this beer and not because I weight 260 pounds. Having just moved to Indy, I look forward to trying all the Upland offerings (botanical as well as beverage).

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

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUL 12, 2004
This starts off hoppy and, towards the end has a warm hoppy finish, but in between, it’s all sweet and toasty bread malts. Interesting, but it’s 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 don’t usually go for IPAs, but I’d 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 (1515) - 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.
