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.

Tap @ the brew pub. Luminous peach amber body growing a luxuriant beige head. Citrus-pine essence with a dry airy leafiness. Wonder smelling, you could close your eyes and imagine fresh hop cones brushing beneath your nostrils. Medium bodied with a green hoppyness, quite fresh tasting, almost veers a bit too much to the raw-side with hints of vegetal, but on the whole, enjoyable.

On tap at the Boulder brewpub. Nothing great, but I still enjoyed it. The English quality doesn’t really come through.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4663) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 5, 2016
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.

NachlamSie (3297) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 16, 2013
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.
