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.

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.

Mode: Bottle
Source: Roadtrip

bottle dated 01/2006 hazy amber, thin beige head, stringy lace, sweet floral hop aroma with sweet carmel and a touch of butterscotch, nice robust hop flavor on a balancing sweet carmel malt base that blends into some sweet butterscotch character, long pleasant bitter finish, a fine drinking IPA, mostly an American style IA with a touch of the buttery English character like from a Ringwood brewery (which works for me)
