Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: imagese on 02-22-2011

Trestles is in the style of an American IPA. 2-row malt and imported light crystal malt create the nice color and clean finish. We use CTZ and Chinook hops in this beer following it up with a dry hop of Simcoe and Centennial in the fermenter bringing out a citrus aroma. Trestles IPA is light bodied, clean and pleasantly hoppy.

3.97/5  rDev +9.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Clean copper like color with some golden color in the lighter areas of the beer. Big frothy 2-finger head that goes down to a respectable 1/2 inch, with plenty of froth still evident.

Smell: Sweet and citrus...the was smells so inviting!!!

Taste & Mouthfeel: Clean taste. Sweet hop flavor up front with a pine flavor underneath. The citrus flavor builds up with a hearty amount malts thrown in for good measure. Slight dry and spicy aftertaste, but not to the point of dry-mouth...still leaves a wet feeling afterwards.

Overall: Great beer from the folks at Left Coast. Beginning to like the stuff they put out. Very solid!

22oz bottle $5.49 . Nice orange color and lacing. Smells Hoppy but also a but of caramel like malt. Tastes bitter and a lot of citrus, good stuff but nothing too crazy here. This is easily one of the better left coast beers I've had lately which isn't saying much... Overall, decent considering the price.

22 oz. bottle poured into a mug.

Appearance: Pours a hazy copper orange color. Minimal off-white head (mostly just a ring of head).

Smell: Light hoppy aroma of orange and apricot. Very pleasant.

Taste: Tasty but mild flavor. Hop spice, and citrus (orange in particular), and particularly apparent.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and medium-bodied with moderate carbonation.

Drinkability: Nice flavor, easy to drink with a low ABV.

Nice beer, not too strong but still enjoyable. A mild IPA, definitely, but still has some flavor.

Thanks to Dane, DankTheTank for sending me this as what I'd call it as an extra.

Pours a orange/golden color with an inch of white head and tiny bubbles. Doesn't leave lacing down the glass.

Smells like citrus and pine hops. I really don't get much of a malt backbone, maybe a hint of bread.

Taste is much more pine than citrus to me. The bread makes a slight appearance, however its more like pinesol than beer.

Mouthfeel is nice, full, sharp to clean the palate, its pretty good.

Drinkability is alright, the pine flavors get a little much as I go through the bottle.

Worth a shot, but not mind-blowing.

Well hazed golden color with some russet duskiness. White head is tall, falls very slowly, produces a nice rockiness, and leaves good stick. Quite nice.

Aromatic even with the cap. Toasted malt and caramel both hit the nose pretty strongly, but the hops are the clear winner. Citrus and pine about evenly. Smells somewhat dry and chalky - very clean.

Lots of resinous pine notes remain in the herbal and earthy hop bill. Maybe a hint of a grape, vinous character, with citric zest in the finish. Body is medium to light, the carbonation is pretty high. Dry finish.

I got this at a pretty busy retailer, I'm surprised it's only the third review here. This should be a good-selling IPA for Left Coast, and good for them.

I've never been a big fan of the other Left Coast Ipa's, but this new addition to the L.C. line is really enjoyable and easy to drink. Perfect for the person who enjoys a clean, piney, fruit IPA with a low malt content.

No smoke, no caramel, no butterscotch, just pine needle goodness, high hops and low aftertaste. This beer isn't really complicated, and I say that in a good way.

A- hazy golden orange with a finger head that faded fast and leave thick but soapy lacing

S- super clean citrus and pine burst. A nice biscuity malt ending really balances the hops profile. Smell is nothing out of the ordinary, but it's super clean and refreshing

T- pine hops lead, closely followed by grapefruit and tangerine. Not much in the way of malt flavor

M- medium light body with nice carbonation. The dry hopping really emphasizes the bitterness and resin left in your mouth

D- very enjoyable and refreshing

Not sure if this is a one time or going to be part of LC's regular brews. Not much info on this beer
