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.

Bottle. Pours orange with an off white head. Light fruity hops, lightly sweet toffee malts, and some flowery hops in a lingering medium bitter finish. Jesus, this is like some run-of-the-mill amber ale. Is the bottle out of date? No clue, because itís not dated. Iíd say pass on this one unless youíre positive itís very fresh.

Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. It poured amber with a frothy off-white head. Malt and hop aroma. Bitter hop taste with a nice bitter finish.

Had it out of a bottle. Pours a hazy copper hue with a creamy head and an uneven lace. Aroma is a mixture of pine and hops and the taste is of malt with a hop kicker.

Most excedingly excellent IPA! Poured at a good temperature with a large, cream colored, foamy, head that settled after a bit, and good lacing. Color is a clear medium amber with some bubble trails. Aroma is more pine resin than citrus, fresh, caramel malt, and alluring. Flavorís like nose, of a strength like a traditional American IPA, good balance between main characteristics, fairly dry. Body/carbonation are perfect for style. Finish is predominantly hop bitter followed by malt, long, and very drinkable. Very well done.

backdaft (200) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear golden/orange color. Thin white head, good lacing. Aroma is mild citrus and piney floral hops. Taste is on par... bitter, dry, and resinous with just a touch of sweet malt for balance. Nice IPA, but in all honesty; nothing really stood out to catch my attention.

onceblind (3933) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 30, 2013
At Epic Beer Fest 2013. Clear golden with a thin persistent white head. Nose is pleasantly hoppy with earthy dankness, floral resin, and a bit of grapefruit zest. Flavor is bitter and hoppy flavorful, with leafy and resinous flavors taking the start, followed by bittersweet caramel and pale malt tones, finishes floral and resinous.

kaser (2488) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2013
This was poured from a keg at El Bait shop in Des Moines. Orange clear pour with white frothy head. Smells like pine and fruit. Taste is about the same. My wheel house for an IPA. Well done!

pfhyde (55) - Davis, California, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Not my favourite Left Coast offering--their bottle conditioned beers are the best--but has a nice bitterness, akin to Stoneís 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). Itís the after-taste and cumulative tastiness of this offering that makes me think thereís more to it than meets the tongue, on first few sips--Iíll 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.
