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.

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

Ernest (6319) - 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.

Taste is caramel, pine, hops, grass and malt, with a citrus finish. Solid IPA.

jgb9348 (4818) - 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.

douglas88 (6250) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 24, 2012
On tap at Beermongers. Pours a clear golden color with a meidum white head. A sweet crisp hop nose. A very easygoing light flavor of grain balance with light fruity hops, light bitterness. Kind of bland but solid.

fiveacestx (628) - Texas, USA - MAR 20, 2012
22 oz bomber - pours medium gold with a foamy head and minimal lacing. This brew is certainly hoppy in aroma and taste. Grapefruit dominates in this one. Has a medium body that is super dry.

notalush (4962) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 16, 2012
Mostly clear, medium copper pour with a moderate, soapy lace - aromas of citrus, pineapple, mango, pine, light peppery character - lean, clean crystal maltiness leaves plenty of room for the hops to shine - a lot of peppery notes, moderate citrus, a strong earthy component - a potent but never abrasive bitterness - lightly floral and peppery finish - nice.

BucannonXC5 (910) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 14, 2012
Poured from a 22-oz. bomber into a pint glass. Hazy orange color. Just one finger of head. Lots of white lacing on the top. Decent amount of wet white spots of film. Some small bubbles. Pretty lasting look. Smelled citrus hops with tangerine and orange leading the way. Also some pine, sweetness and lots of citurs. Tasted pretty similar to the nose. Tangy, tangerine, orange, citrusy and a bit buttery. Medium body. Thin, oily texture. Average carbonation. The finish got a bit old and I got sick of it. Had to knock it down at least 0.5. I wavered between some ratings here and this could have easily been a bit higher or lower. I’d give it another try.

(22oz bottle) Pours a clear golden body with a moderate white head. Aroma of pine, grass, and herbs. Flavor of pine, earth, grass, and herbs with a dry, bitter finish.

thirdeye11 (5620) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 29, 2012
(22oz bomber thanks to bu11zeye) clear light yellow-gold, with oily white bubbles and nice coating. Nose of fresh orange pulp, hop extract, light grapefruit. Fresh and smells pretty good! Taste of cream, orange, lightly bitter yellow grapefruit, tinge of onion but not offensive. The finish on the other hand tends to be more bitter than I’d like, oily and bitter on the palate. A bit of hairspray linger.
