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.

Lovely. Amber pour with a dense white head. Body is incredibly rich and creamy. Starts out sweetish with grapefruit and hay, nice malt backbone. Ends up very dry and moderately bitter.

ALLOVATE (2538) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 10, 2015
Unsure of how this ended up on the shelves of Dan Murphy’s, but equally perplexed by why I myself was shopping there to begin with!??
Into a snifter it goes. Settles with a solid, two inch, rocky white crown fuelled by very fine carbonation. Body is a radiant, sunny orange. Super piney, camphorous and raw is the nose, smelling down and out like I was standing in the middle of a pine plantation. A subtle edge of stewed rhubarb and strawberry khoulis lifts it. Creamy in the mouth; frothy and soft with a thick finish. Plenty of herbaceous, peppery and, of course, piney hops fill out the palate, spreading into every nook and crannie. Dusty, earthy and raw like the nose. Lengthy bitterness is a highlight. Malt plays second fiddle but offers a grainy, toasty balance. Definitely get the Chinook as there is a tart, bitter, underripe grapefruit quality to it also. This one is all hops done well. Beautifully bitter, tight, tart, spicy and woody all rolled into one. A pleasant IPA! (12fl.Oz, no date stamp, Dan Murphy’s, Canning)

I didn't get to give this my full attention, but here we go: It's hoppy and Crisp, it's easy drinking and refreshing. Great to watch the cricket with.

Bottle from Wine Emporium 190315. Stylish little number with floral and citrus aromas. Not overly hoppy but that’s okay. Golden honey colour with soft head.

BeerandBlues2 (10515) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Tap at Slater’s 50/50 - San Marcos. Pours clear orange with a medium, creamy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is fruity, floral, and pine hops with pear esters and honey malt. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness with crisp malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

maneliquor (3391) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 2, 2015
Bottle from Mane Liquor. The description said it would be light bodied, clean and refreshing. It wasn’t really any of those. Brand new stock so as fresh as we can get it in Aus but it just came across like sticky, resinous tropical fruits. Was ok but nothing special in any way

VertBaconStrips (2150) - Asshat, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 2, 2015
Drank at the bar at Tony Roma’s across from Disneyland while staring at the bartenders subpar tits and waiting for my family to show up. Heavy malt, grapefruit, so-so tasting orange, pine and sweetness that was off. A patron suggested it - "it’s an IPA - that’s a bitter fruity beer". Thanks a lot, shit dick.

Purchased from the Fine Wine Delivery co. in a 650ml bottle. I’m buying more American beers as a compliment to the solid NZ beers that I normally buy, but unfortunately thats as far as my compliments can go, upon further inspection this beer was imported from the supplier in December of 2013 and I can’t help but feel that this has had a negative impact on the aroma and slightly unpleasant stale after taste. Nevertheless still acceptable in the last of the NZ summer sun with good company.

Pours golden, sparkling, frothy head. Complex aroma of flowers, mango, grapefruit, hint of bread and honey. Taste: roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, nuts, grapefruit zest, tropical fruits.
