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.

Clear look, deep golden orange in color, with a thinner off white head. The smell is pine, fruits, caramel, grass, and hops. The taste is medium bitterness, pine, fruits, grass, and musty.

Terminus (3229) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - MAY 2, 2012
Tap at Square Cow-El Paso, TX-Pours lightly hazy bright orange with a small soapy white head. nose is floral and by the book-nothing really striking here. jus smells like your standard floral-forward IPA for the masses. This beer doesnt seem all that punchy, meaning it maybe a bit on the old side (even though this place just opened up) orange and tangerine flavors dominate with lite bitterness. Not offensive, just doesnt do much for me. However, its a clean fermet so i give it props for that. I would like to try this fresh then maybe it would be a bit better.

Light bodied, but very hoppy beer. To me this is the perfect summer IPA. Goes down a treat, with a lovely citrus/floral/pine finish.Really good stuff from an underrated brewery (IMHO).

SirADNielsen (8948) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 27, 2012
Bottle @ home. Clear golden orange appearance with a big off white head. Earthy citrusy hoppy, a touch toasty aroma that doesn’t smell incredibly fresh. Pretty tasty grapefruity, a bit resiny, earthy hoppy flavor with notes of toasted malts and light caramel. Pretty good but wish it was a bit fresher.

650 ml. bottle. 6.8% ABV per the label. Pours a medium, lasting, off white head, with attractive lacing, over a clear, amber (SRM 8) body....nose is light citrus, pine, hints of toffee/caramel.....taste is pine, citrus, light toffee/caramel, hints of floral sweetness, a touch of pineapple, finishing with a medium hop bitterness....mouth feel medium, slightly astringent, carbonation adds a gentle fizz. In spite of the Left Coast name, this is a slightly lighter take on an IPA. The bittering hops are done with a relatively light hand, the result being a very floral, flavorful IPA with lower bitterness than many. BJCP 7/3/15/4/7

Poured from the bottle. Aroma was great, this was a nicely hoped beer, with great citrus flavors.

Ernest (6154) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 15, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is light amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (resin, grapefruit), with a light note of onions. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. An exceedingly dull, one-dimensional example.

jgb9348 (4655) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 27, 2012
Crisp, hazy copper coloured body with a deep manuka honey glow and a perfect, two centimetre tall tan head - brilliant. Aroma of pungent, rank, grassy and herbal hops with a bit more resin in the bunch, and a touch of alcohol - very nice smelling indeed. Medium-bodied; Grassy and herbal hoppy flavours at first with a nice light malty taste, a touch of sweetness at the end, and more hop bitterness. Aftertaste is nice, with some mellow grassy and herbal flavours but nothing over the top or ridiculous. Overall, a nice IPA, but not my favourite, however, a solid west-coast IPA that is nice to try. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Total Wine in Tustin, California on 03-February-2012 for US$4.99 sampled at home in Washington on 27-March-2012.
