Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a beige/orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of caramel malts, some melon. Taste is the same. Malts up front, light melon, bitter at the finish. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall is a bit malt heavy for the style, but is an enjoyable beer.

Nice standard IPA. Hits all the important notes and a bit more. Particularly nice on a hot day. Thumbs up!

First had at Upland Brewpub, Bloomington, Indiana, on draft into tumbler. Dragonfly is a serviceable traditional IPA, especially to wash down hearty pub grub.
