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.

Cimbasso (868) - - 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 (451) - 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 doesnt stand out.

rumproasts (5309) - 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.

Slightly Hazy Brownish Orange Color, Big Foamy Head That Lasts And Leaves Lots Of Lacing. Surprisingly Just a Very Faint Aroma of Pine and Citrus. Malt, Resin, Pine, Bitter Hops. Strong and Long Lasting Bitter Aftertaste with very light Sweetness at the end. Enjoyed It. Nice. Recommended.
