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.

alcaponejunior (438) - Texas, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Nice looking beer, orange and slightly hazy, great off-white, slightly orange head that didnít seem to want to go away, and left sticky lacing. Aroma and taste were very pungently bitter hops, resiny, piney, pine resin, a healthy dose of citrus and citrus peel (lemon, grapefruit), some black pepper and a touch of earthiness. Thereís actually a fairly bold malt backbone, but itís at least partially masked by the plentiful hops, which are certainly the focus of this beer. Body is medium and tangy with bitter hops, leaving a warmimg sensation after each sip that makes this one drink and feel more like a double IPA, and more like a higher ABV beer. I would say if the goal of this beer was to blast the drinker with massive quantities of hops, then mission accomplished. Hop heads should certainly put this one on their list. Overall left coast did a good job on this beer (or is it a hops-beverage with a smidge of malts added?). I would certainly like to have this one again.

Appearance was hazy orangish gold with diminishing off white 1 finger head, slight spotty lacing. Aromas are caramel, toffee malts, then musky citrus piney hops, no alcohol. Taste are simple slight sweet base of malts, then of pine smash your tongue with grapefruit musk, lemon spicey and earthy leather hops, no alcohol. Palate are soft smooth CO2 with light-medium body, then lasting smooth earthy, piney finish. Just donít like the hop combo, but the malts is good.

hoju777 (153) - FRANCE - NOV 8, 2013
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 (241) - Delaware, USA - NOV 6, 2013
Pours a clear, light colored orange/gold with about 1íí 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 Coastís Hop Juice.

Ontape (469) - Valley Village, California, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle. Pours a light copper. Nose tells you right away that this ainít 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 Iím 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 Iíd pick up again.
