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.

Oly (67) - Crawfordsville, Indiana, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Poured from a bottle. Deep orange color and off white head. Aroma driven by malt. Taste is malt and hop bitterness. It’s missing the hop complexity you expect from an IPA. Drinkable, but unremarkable.

This is not going to be a hoity-toity follow the rules rating. I simply do believe this is my favorite beer EVER ( and I have loved many beers in my lifetime!) The citrus hops? Heavenly...just a perfect balance of everything that is good in this world! I love this beer so much that I would pick the highest number of every category, but, since perfection is fleeting and rarely attained, I’m holding back just a bit. Truthfully, I cannot find a single thing wrong with this beer...except the fact that I can’t find it by me. PLEASE come to NY!

Light amber light head. Aromas medium pine, citrus, light caramel. Flavors peach, citrus, pine. Medium bitter finish. A pretty decent ipa.

Cimbasso (892) - - DEC 15, 2016
Sampled from a bottle at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago. Pours orange with a thick, white head. Aromas of sweet malt and citrus. The taste has quite a sweet malt base and citrussy hops with a strongly bitter finish. Hints of pine resin and grapefruit skin. Some floral and slightly spicy notes. A nice fruity and refreshingly bitter IPA. A little sweeter than I like, but not bad at all. Highly drinkable.

BrownALEx (459) - Portland, Michigan, USA - DEC 10, 2016
Very nice aroma of citrus and piney hops. Appearance is cloudy and a diluted rust orange. Taste is a collection of muddled flavors, hops mixed with caramel malt. Could be balanced better. Carbonation is kind of harsh. Overall, a decent ipa, but in a category that is saturated with great ipas, this one doesn’t stand out.

rumproasts (5359) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 13, 2016
bottle. Amber with one finger head. Medium+ caramel malt body -- definitely maltier than I prefer for the style. Moderate hops, though somewhat undistinct. Balanced, but on the boring side.

Not a bad IPA. Mostly pine with some lingering citrus. Pours light orange with a thick white head. Tried at the Indy airport in 2016 with Matt and Guy.

Pours a cloudy amber-copper, with mid-sized head. Aroma of pine, grass, some citrus. Flavor fairly sweet, with balanced mix between the hops and malt. Nice citrus and pine flavors. Good burger accompaniment.
