Fast, flowy, super fun trail with a bit of everything, named after the Driftwood Brewery IPA. Nothing too tricky.

When climbing, after going across the log ride, make sure you go under the wood structure and make it to the very top of the trail for the correct starting point.

       Ok I'm an average rider I live here and this is a shitty climb. I walked the entire up. The down is fun though however you better be ready for some steep sections. Probably wouldn't Ride it again the up was not fun, if that makes me a little bitch so be it.

       The climb to Fat Tug (Smoky Tickler) is definitely a work out, but such a nice job from the builders, considering the terrain around there , Fat Tug is pretty fun down

       The climb is perfect if you have an E-Bike like me. But I was chased down by a local woman on a normal bike. Insane!
