Upland Brewing Co. Introduces Komodo Dragonfly IPA

Upland Brewing Komodo Dragonfly IPA

Bloomington, IN – Upland Brewing Co. announced today that Komodo Dragonfly Black IPA will be released on draught and in 6 packs in January of 2016. It will be available on tap at Upland tap rooms by late January.

About the Beer
Komodo Dragonfly Black IPA is a well-balanced, dark, bitter, and a totally unique beer experience. We brewed this IPA with a base of fresh Pilsner Malts and darkened the color with Black Malts, creating a clean malt character that allows the liberal hop additions to shine through. We add a pinch of locally grown English Lavender “Royal Velvet” to the kettle and dry hop with Mosaic to deliver tropical and floral notes which provide an aromatic experience. The lavender is from Lavender Valley Farm in Monroe County, Indiana.

ABV: 6.7%    IBU: 67

About the Brewery
Located in Bloomington, Indiana, Upland’s rich history dates all the way back to 1998. Taking traditional recipes and making them a bit more awesome, Upland Brewing Co. came up with their own recipes rooted with inspiration from good beer and good friends, providing a fresh local option to their communities. The name Upland comes from the term geologists gave to this area of Southern Indiana land which was never overrun by the glaciers that flattened much of Indiana’s landscape. The adversity of the land bred independent thinkers who had strong wills, a connection to the land, and a wry sense of humor about life. Upland’s approach to brewing beer honors the spirit of these people and this place.
