My first Uplands beer, had this on new pint night at O'sheas. Poured a wonderful clear medium copper hue with a light tan 3/4" head,great lacing. Well balanced aroma, malty with a citrus presence.

What a great tasting, well balanced beer. A strong caramel malt flavor with a ice bitter finish. I'll have to say if I had to judge the taste on what a Double IPA should be it would get a lower rating. But if it was that hoppy I probably wouldn't have finished it..I'm no hophead. As it was I barely expected to be able to drink it, yet had 3.

An easy drinking, smooth, crisp beer. Didn't know the alcohol content while drinking them, maybe thats why the wife drove home

Looking forward to trying more Upland beers

A - Copper hued with nice clarity. Cream colored head that leaves incredible lacing.

S - Huge caramel malt backbone. Floral hops. A bit grassy.

T - Again the caramel malt dominates. The hops kick in toward the finish. Piny, floral. A bit of alcohol. Nicely balanced.

M - Good and thick. Very smooth.

D - Very easy going down for 9.1%. If I had more time at the brewpub I could have been in trouble.

This beer really does live up to its name: Double Dragonfly. Which, unfortunately, isn't a good thing. The hops are a bit weak for an imperial IPA and overall it's pretty bland. I had high hopes when i saw this on tap, but was pretty disappointed. Maybe worth trying if you see it, but definitely don't seek it out.
