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.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 23, 2005
12oz bottle from ATPayne. Pours a copper color with a small off white head. Lots of bubbles running through the beer. Nose is sweet malt, some sour grape like notes. Taste is mainly malty and bitter. A good clean carbonation fills your mouth. finishes a bit off for a second, then some light hopps come in to clean up.

antzman (316) - Clarksville, Indiana, USA - NOV 17, 2005
12 oz bottle. Poured a blurry light orange with a nice thick white head, and plenty of lacing on the glass. The taste is very sweet for an IPA, and is not overly hopped, but pleasant to drink.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2005 Draft at brewpub. Hazy orange color with a medium to thick white head. Malty overtones that mask the hoppiness of this beer. Not bad, but not a good example of an IPA, lacks the heavy hops. But, give it a try.

Nothing overly exciting about this beer, but it is tasty and nice. A good beer, which will be followed by many others, to help get over the Badger loss today.

Orange in color, very hazy with a thick head. Some burnt caramel in the aroma, along with floral hops. Very fruity flavor, some lemons and oranges, some grassiness, and lingering bitterness. Not too bad, but not stellar. Thanks to TAR.

Let me start off by saying that I sampled several beers from this brewer over the past weekend... and all of them taste the same (in a way). There’s an underlying burnt-rice flavor to all of their beers that I just can’t get past. Bottle. Floral aroma? Not really... smells malty... too malty. Flavor: yep, it’s loaded with malts and burnt rice. Oh, what a disappointment when I was trying to get a friend to try his first IPA.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 17, 2005
Draught @ Legends - Notre Dame. Poured a clear reddish-amber with a light off-white head. Nice lacing all the way down. Citrusy aroma, with some underlying sweetness from the malts. Crisp and citrusy (with pine notes) on the front of the palate. Light-to-medium bodied, with a little malty sweetness present. Finish was not well-balanced, and seemed to be bitter for the sake of being bitter. This was a really good brew.. until about halfway down.

Draft. Clear amber hue with medium white head. Medium sweet aroma with some floral. Medium body with well balanced finish. Medium sweet taste with floral and citrus.

12oz - Bottled April 05 - Hoppy nose with floral citrus undertones. Copper color with consistent bubbles like champange. A medium head that quickly dissapates but leaves plenty of lacing. Flavor is a little disappointing. The hops aren’t real strong which allows the malts to take over. The palate is smooth and slick. It is a very drinkable and tasty session brew that would be a good introduction to the style.

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2006 Bottle from Cornfield. Incredible amount of <a href=www.ratebeer.com/><a href=http://www.workinlate.com/images/beer/LotsaFl suspended within a hazy, coppery body. A zesty, orange-citrus nose with floral notes, oregano and a milky background. A nice bite to start, then smooth & soft malts to a lingering light bitterness.
