Left Coast Brewing Company
California, United States
leftcoastbrewing.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.80%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Light orange appearance, 1/2" white head. Aroma was mild again, some citrus input, questionable if dry hopped.

Had an average amount of hops, caramel malt, carbonation, body, bitterness. Bomber format is stupid for an ipa.

12oz bottle, drank from the bottle
A - unknown
S - citrus, toasty grain, caramel, pine
T- bitter & pungent with notes of pine, toasted grain, caramel, orange and grapefruit zest & pith
M - medium bodied and very resinous but a bit chalky it seems, hop oils stick to the palate, finishes zesty and bitter with pine lingering
O - not the best IPA, but it was a good price and it hit the spot in the middle of a warm Huntington Beach, CA afternoon.

Cloudy orange look. I liked the aroma. Sort of a citrus back. Not very hoppy at all. Smooth and pretty light for a IPA. Would be a good summer beer. Worth a try.

SRM 6-7 (golden amber), and clear with occasional carbonation. A thin, creamy off-white head delivers fine white lace to the PBGC Hoppy glass.

Caramel dominates the aroma, followed by spicy pinesap and grass.

The flavor opens quite bitter with resins and caramel. Wheat bread provides a surprising middle while the finish is boldly bitter, long and drawn out.

The medium body and woolly texture subdue modest carbonation and alcohol. Astringency is prominent.

Trestles is better suited for a hot day rather than a cool drizzly day. A fine, middle of the road, IPA.

A very average American IPA in just about every way. Not a strong aroma, and not a strong flavor. Almost tastes like a watered down traditional IPA. Certainly nothing special, this beer could use a lot of refining.

A: crystal clear; copper colored; with a fairly aggressive pour, less than a 1 finger ivory head that receded to a wispy cap; nice lacing;

S: floral, earthy, a little pine;

T: a combination of citrus and pine from start to finish; mild to moderate bitterness at the end;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; lightly dry finish;

O: something about the flavor combination that didn't work for me;

12 oz bottle, no freshness/bottling date info to be had

Pours clear, lighter almond amber, fine bubble off white head, moderate in side but leaving a quality looking load of fine sheeting...decent lookin brew

Light citrus hops on the nose..eads to more of the same on the palate, light and somewhat muted citrus hops, riding over a respectable but not blowing me away coating of bread infused malts...Better then average, but again, not blowing me away
