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.

Nearly a perfect beer. Great hop character. Slight residual sweetness. Great restaurant, too!

Basically a souped up version of their pale ale. A bit more malt - a ton more hops. True hophead delight in this glass. Citric hop nose and flavor whammo. Enough malt to keep it balanced. Nice bronze color.

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.

Pours from the bottle to a bright orange color, with a thin white head that lingers long and leaves good lacing on the glass. Nose is a very pronounced hoppy citrus (mostly grapefruit and oranges) and the taste follows suit perfectly. Mouthfeel is slightly carbonated, tangy and just the right amount of bitterness. This all rounds off to a long, dry, bitter finish. I was very impressed with this beer from a brewer Iíd never heard of.

Served on draft at the Indianapolis tasting room. I see the ratings before me are lackluster so I wonder if they have bottling issues because what I had on draft was amazing. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized creamy white head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of bitter hops with resin, tropical and citrus notes. The taste is bitter citrus and resiny hops, pale malts and then more hops in the finish with a tropical vibe this time. Well balanced. Lingering bitterness. Very nice beer.

Hops bursting from this IPA in aroma and flavor. Taste strong in citrus, light in pine, medium caramel. Good finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a orange to amber color with a white head. Nice lacing. The aroma is faint pine with some citrus. The taste is very malty with bitter hops and a long dry finish. Not a bad beer.

Rather decent, pours very cloudy with a nice burst of hops. Sadly, this is short-lived, however the taste does stick to you while you consume this delightful beverage. I found this to be a excellent choice, rather cheap to get and it nice to grab after a hard dayís work.

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.
