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.

Fine IPA, but not unusual, especially at premium price to local MI brews. Glad to have Left Coast in MI, but have nothing unique yet.

12 oz bottle. Really good even if it is on the stale side. Pours a lightish orange/copper with hints of a white head. What can I say- tastes like the west coast. Makes me want to head west with a longboard. Lots of pine, citrus (grapefruit!) and hint of spice and grassy notes on the palate. Decent dankness and resiny quality- slightly oily in the mouth. Malts on the sweet/ biscuity side, but pretty well balanced overall by bittering hops. Slightly astringent. Totally solid and totally west coast.

Onslow (1184) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Pour form a 12oz bottle. Clear orange/amber brew with white head. Nice aroma of caramel malt, sweet pine and resinous hops. Teat follows aroma. Rock solid IPA.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 30, 2014
Where and how: bottle 355ml?
Aroma rather sweet. Sugary with notes of caramel. Citrusy backing. Not very complex.
Appearance :
Top: medium plus creamy cap.
Base: hazy, almost even cloudy amber ale.
Palate : soft, medium plus bodied. Milder carbonation.
Taste: tad too sweet. Plenty of crystal? malts. Nice softer rounded finish.

CelticBrew (826) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Pours from 12oz bottle a brilliantly clear gold with copper core and off white head. Aroma of pungent, rank, grassy and herbal hops with a bit more resin in the bunch, and a touch of tropical fruitage- very pleasant smelling indeed. Flavours are nice and fresh—hoppy, but really fruity, and with a nice sweet maltiness. A brief, juicy finish like tangy oranges, with a bit of mango or passion fruit. Overall, a really solid IPA. Nothing too complicated, but a nice malt backing to balance the rounded bitterness. Nice beer.

ChainGangGuy (4391) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 13, 2014
22 ounce bottle - $4.99 at Bullock’s in Marietta, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a clear, orange-golden body with a sudsy, off-white head that settles to a thin, frothy cap.

Smell: Atop the lightly bready, biscuity, sweet-accented malts are the hops, presenting scents of pithy grapefruit, glistening lemon rind, sun-dried grasses, sharp fresh herbs with a resinous undercurrent.

Taste: A bit bready, a bit biscuity with a light initial sweetness eventually made diminutive by the growing, accumulating hop bitterness. Citric, fruity flavors of lemon, grapefruit. Wet herbs, dried grasses. Lightly earthy, resiny. Medium-plus bitterness. Soft finish with a lingering, lightly stinging, lightly astringent pine, grassy element.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Minutely oily on the tongue.

Overall: It does have its superiors, but Trestles has all the necessary pieces to make it a worthy, likable India Pale Ale.

BOSSbrewer (1680) - Arkansas, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours a clear orange with little to no head. Aroma is strongly tangerine with some pine resin. Flavor follows with slight maltiness. Really nice IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

vandc01 (82) - North Branch, Minnesota, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Poured from a 12oz bottle with no bottle date Aroma - Orangey smell - perhaps due to the age of the bottle? Appearance - Hazy Orange - I can see some particles from floating around. Taste - The orangey taste doesn’t carry thru with the taste. Malty and with a bit of bittering. Palate - Think feeling, not too smooth going down. Overall - This is another Left Coast beer that is a real "meh" for me. I don’t know if I get them too old, or if I just don’t like how they brew them.

Starts off slightly off taste, gets better as it warms. Average IPA. Good bit probably not one I would seek out again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
