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.

Alengrin (4262) - BELGIUM - NOV 28, 2015
West Coast IPA with thick, egg-white, lightly lacing, dense head, laying stable over a warm orange golden, clear beer. Lovely and fragrant IPA bouquet of orange flesh, tangerine, limoncello, mango, melting butter, juniper berries and pine resin, some sweet onion, biscuit, sweet white wine, vanilla-like tropical flowers, weak hint of chicken broth. Clean, crisp onset of well-positioned tropical fruit sweetness (mango, papaja, orange) already surrounded by a spicy hop bitterness from the start. Carbo is soft, mouthfeel lean and supple with an oily touch. Smooth, somewhat thin pale and caramelly malt sweetishness underlies, supporting the hop bitterness which grows from beginning to end and finishes the palate with deep bittering power, drying the throat but leaving through just enough of the malt sweetness, and, more than anything, with a wonderful retronasal hop fragrance, citrusy, piney, floral and spicy. Not very distinctive as such, but technically very well executed and very appetizing, an ideal apéritif.

tomgorm (47) - maroubra, AUSTRALIA - NOV 26, 2015
Pours a deep copper colour with a compact head. Strong honey toffee aromas back the orange marmalade and tart citrus flavours. Bitterness stacks up over time. Interesting, pleasant, but not overly special.

Idiosynkrasie (6070) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 21, 2015
355ml bottle. Hop-milky, orangey, deep golden to amber colour with small to average, fluffy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Piney, hoppy aroma pervades space in a very sluggish mode, caramel malty background, a sugary touch of candied orange zest. Taste is bitter and citrusy fruity hoppy, notes of lemon, a minimally chalky touch, caramel malty background with almond touch; lasting, biting bitterness.

jmgreenuk (7093) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - NOV 12, 2015
Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a clear medium amber with a thin broken white head and some broken lace. The aroma is yeast, citrus hop. The flavour is moderate to strong bitter with a fresh big citrus hop bitter, light spice palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

Amber-gold pour with a decent off white head. Citrus, pine and caramel aromas, and taste is similar - grapefruit, caramel, pine, nice bitterness but very easy drinking

altonbrownd (5290) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - OCT 31, 2015
Bottle from Bethesda Food and Beverage. Nice, murky copper body with big head. Nose is hops and sweet and spices. Taste is also very nice with lots of Chinook hops, some pine and spicier elements. Quite the stuff.

olio (8882) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 23, 2015
355 ml bottle.
Pours clear golden color with a large white head. Grapefruits and orange on the aroma mostly, some resinous notes, mild hops and pale malts. Mild cardboard-y notes tell something about the freshness. Flavor is sweet malty and slightly fruity, some resinous hops there too. Slightly malty IPA and unfortunately not very fresh, could have been good.

sebletitje (8957) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 5, 2015
Bouteille 355ml. Orangé, col blanc-cassé, crémeux. Arôme offre un bouquet plaisant d’agrumes; pamplemousse, rétro modéré malté. Palais sur un malt dominant, note de caramel, houblonné sec sur un fruité de pamplemousse avec pas mal de houblons C. Fleuri sur la fin un peu huileux avec toujours ce malt qui perdure. Retrouve ce léger profil d’agrumes au fini.
