Rumor has it this beer is the favorite of a former U.S. President. An IPA with big hops bitterness bumping against three varieties of 2 row barley malt goodness. A fan favorite.

Dragonfly1 (500) - Colorado, USA - MAR 8, 2010
Draft at the Flying Saucer, Little Rock. After running the marathon here this afternoon, needed something crisp to re-hydrate. Poured a copper/yellow, with little head. Aroma is citrus, and the taste is all grapefruit. Finished very dry. A touch too dry for me, but a decent beer overall.

12oz bottle, big thanks to byaeger who shared this. Knowing Im the tickiest of the tickers and needed to put an Arkansas notch on my proverbial bedpost, Brian busted out this bottle during a party at his apartment and I almost regretted choosing not to wear my "Oops I Crapped My Pants" undergarments to the event. Pours a hazy copper color with a well-formed white head that lasts. Very nice tropical fruit aroma, hoppy with some sweet malt poking through. Decent flavor, not too hoppy though. The hops have a mainly citrusy/pineappley flavor to them, and are accompanied by sweet pale and caramel malts. Bitterness is pretty low. Fairly sweet on the palate, not dry at all, with medium body for the style. Drinkable if nothing else. A surprisingly good beer overall, as I expected it to suck and it ended up being decent.

Bottled. Slightly hazy coppery amber colour with mediumsized creamy off-white head. Aroma is fruits, some caramel malts and mild wooden notes as well. Flavour is quite similar. Nothing extraordinary, but mellow and pleasant to drink.
