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.

sebletitje (8029) - 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.

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.

Muggus69 (1617) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - SEP 27, 2015
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.

bmeup (585) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - SEP 10, 2015
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).
In short: 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.
