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.

Not my favourite Left Coast offering--their bottle conditioned beers are the best--but has a nice bitterness, akin to Stone’s IPA, and a thin, drinkable body with a lingering, roasted-coffee- or lime-peal-esque after-taste (the Left Coast water seems characteristic to me, somehow--but that might be my imagination). It’s the after-taste and cumulative tastiness of this offering that makes me think there’s more to it than meets the tongue, on first few sips--I’ll have to return to it again to see.

Yellow with a white head. The aroma is full of toffee, pine and oranges. The flavor is similar with a lot of toffee and caramel notes which mean the beer is only slightly bitter. I also get some pine and orange notes from the hops in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bottle. Not a bad west coast style ipa, but there are better ones out there. This one seems to be missing the bitter bite and finish I want in my ipa. Heavier on the malt side making it slightly unbalanced. Decent, just nothing memorable.

Bottle from Whispering Willows Liquor: Created a thick frothy layer of foamed head while the liquid was a dense golden honey hue that has shows a haze of sediment. My nose is able to pick up on a minimal amount of hops with notes of citrus, pine, and a faint background of a marijuana plant. The flavor taste as if it is somehow unbalanced with a base of syrupy caramel malt paired with moderate amount of green oily hops that have hints of pine and citrus fruit.

Trestles pours a brilliant gold with a hue of light orange in the body and a thin creamy off white head that somehow looks out of place. The aroma much less brutal and intense with poignant pine resins but with mild citrus and light floral accented hops aromas. There are a few mild grainy malt and toasted malts notes in the aroma despite the rather golden appearance. Sweet citrusy hops in the first sips with more caramel malts than expecting adding sweetness and a good balance. Mild resinous and piney flavours add an interesting character to the mix with moderately heavy bitterness shortly following. The finish is overly astringent but a solid aftertaste of resinous hops is present. Not exactly tasting as much bitterness and drying hops as expected but a nice well balanced hop heavy brew none-the-less

Pours a light copper color with a white head. The aroma is of floral piney and citrus hops sent. The flavor is of a bitter citrus. The finish is clean with a nice bitter aftertaste. Overall a good beer.
