Just like one of the best climbs at Joshua Tree, this IPA, chock full of UK Kent Golding hops, is not only beautiful to look at, but after quaffing a few pints, you’ll have that same satisfaction as if you were pulling that final crux move at the end of the climb. This beer is also dry hopped with whole flower, UK Kent Golding hops.

Sample at Vine Street. Similar in color to FYIPA but this is more malt forward and English in style while retaining an easy drinking balance.

Pint at Vine Street. I honestly don’t normally enjoy English IPAs so much, but this was quite good. The aroma pops with hop notes of wood, light citrus, earth and pine. The flavor is full of good hop bite, pretty earthy, citrus comes out. The finish is dry. The malts seem American, could be Marris Otter. Very clean and robust for the style. I would get this again.

Hazy gold, light, creamy tan head, 1 cm. Aroma is light chalk and bit of grass and floral notes. Body is light, carbonation is on the prickly side. Flavor is light grass, moderate, clean herbal bitterness. English IPA shouldn’t be classified as an IPA, in my opinion. This might better fit the ESB style.
