355 ml bottle.HopfenWeisse (1558) - - OCT 19, 2015
Pours clear golden color with a large white head. Grapefruits and orange on the aroma mostly, some resinous notes, mild hops and pale malts. Mild cardboard-y notes tell something about the freshness. Flavor is sweet malty and slightly fruity, some resinous hops there too. Slightly malty IPA and unfortunately not very fresh, could have been good.
Golden amber color with small head. Aroma is malt, hops. Flavor is caramel, citrus, malt. Well balanced IPA. sebletitje (10500) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 5, 2015
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. BeerdedDave (2010) - Beckley, USA - OCT 4, 2015
cloudy, amber color; nice citrusy hop aroma; nice hoppy flavor; citrusy hops with tropical fruit notes; fairly light to medium bodied, bready malt base with light caramel notes IslandHaole (1301) - Misawa, JAPAN - SEP 27, 2015
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.

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. msbernac (2921) - Krakow, POLAND - SEP 21, 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.
