COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Trestles IPA is light bodied, clean, and pleasantly hoppy. With every sip this tasty IPA will take you back to your escape, such as local surf spot Trestles. Its strong copper color and clean finish on the palate are created by brewing with a 2-row malt and light imported crystal malt. We use CTZ and chinook hops and follow it up with the addition of dry hops of chinook and centennial in the fermenter bringing out a citrus aroma. Find your escape.

Smells like burned plastic, malt extract syrup. Looks like beer. Tastes like a bitter homebrew clone of Firestone ESB. Watery and too bitter. Who is rating this so high?

GSH1976 (218) - Delaware, USA - NOV 6, 2013
Pours a clear, light colored orange/gold with about 1’’ of head and excellent lacing. Aroma is mainly citrus with just a hint of caramel malt. Taste follows the nose and there is some nice sweetness in the background but the bitterness is the main attraction here but it does not linger long afterwards. Overall the beer is very clean, crisp and easy to drink. I preferred this to Left Coast’s Hop Juice.

Bottle. Pours a light copper. Nose tells you right away that this ain’t your typical West Coast IPA. Hop bitterness is present but the malt sweetness drives the boat here. Butterscotch in there turning me off a bit. Taste again feels malt over hops for me, not really what I’m looking for in this style. Slightly more bitterness comes through than the noise would have you believe. A well-made, enjoyable beer but not one I’d pick up again.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a slightly cloudy medium orange with a half finger of white head. Aroma of caramel and dank hops. Taste is heavily bitter. Like licking a pine tree...very one sided. Medium bodied with a thin texture. Very soft carbonation and a very long bitter finish. Overall, ok. Its just very bitter and not at all complex.

Pdubyah (485) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 8, 2013
Midweek, humpday blues and all I had this. It’s really quite nice, despite the IBU number being 92 it’s not bitter and there is a big overhead of sweetness. Added to the ’full’ or ’fluffy’ mouthfeel this is a beer that had a start, middle and end. The end is in a dryness. A fair amount of ’flavours’ also, like grapefruit, lemon maybe and a tad of grass, it’s all a bit of a dance. Could you go two? probably not, but this would be fantastic as a part of course drinking, entree, main or finish. In summary - made me smile :-)

I would definitely buy this beer again. Solid IPA with a stiff grassy aroma. Good thick mouthfeel leaves the palette satisfied.

ben4321 (4449) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Location: 22 oz bottle from Central Market, 9/18/13

Aroma: The nose is full of orange juice, grapefruit, hops, and some caramel/toffee
Appearance: A total and complete gusher: pours a hazy orange color with a frothy white head
Flavor: This one tastes hoppy and a little sweet, it is juicy and citrusy as well
Palate: Lighter body, with a clean/crispness, a long, dry finish, and way too much carbonation
Overall Impression: Unfortunately this was such an absurd gusher that I lost a good 25% of the beer. What a waste! Anyway, this one is pretty good, but that carbonation does hurt the drinkability. As a fruity/juicy IPA though, I enjoyed it.

Lovely. Amber pour with a dense white head. Body is incredibly rich and creamy. Starts out sweetish with grapefruit and hay, nice malt backbone. Ends up very dry and moderately bitter.
