I used to live in San Clemente over 30 years ago and would often body surf at the Trestles! Nice to see the place immortalized on a beer! Good hoppy scent without being the typical truckload of Cascades, a bit more subtle and very fragrant. Cut grass, clover honey, blood orange. Dark golden color with beige head. Bitter with floral notes up front, some grainy sweetness but the bitter hops are the stars of this show.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
355mL bottle from Slowbeer
Pours a slightly hazy orange gold body, small white head persists.
Fragrant aroma, typical American hop affair - fresh pine, cut grass, grapefruit with good hit of biscuity, toast caramel malt.
Medium bodied, smooth body, moderate carbonation - very drinkable!
Body opens with nice caramel malts lending sweetness to pine needle, woody, grass hops, bitter citrus. Plenty of bitterness, lingering finish.
Nice IPA, ticks all of the boxes.

BBD where? so i have no idea how old, what is left is caramel malt, slightly hazy amber, very little aromatic hops, maybe some citrus but mostly malt and a fair amount of bitterness. Probably not a good sample.

Keg @Cimmeria, Oviedo. 08-09-2015.
BBD: 5/2016 (WTF? i guess this comes from the importer. Anyway, quiet fresh).
Pours quite clear deep gold with frothy white head. Moderate head retention, some lacing. Flowers, grassy, caramel and fruity nose. Medium body, average carbonation, oily texture. Taste is moderate bitter, grassy, some alcohol noticed, caramel, citrusy finish. Some viscous palated, heavy body for its ABV. Enjoyable.
