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.

A: The beer is crystal clear deep yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. An aggressive pour resulted in a finger half frothy off white head that died down, leaving lacing on the surface and the sides of the glass and a collar around the edge.
S: Moderate aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose along with strong notes of biscuit malts.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste starts off with flavors of biscuity malts and citrusy hops, the latter of which contribute a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found the biscuit malt aromas and flavors to be quite interesting as they reminded me of an English Ale but the contrasting hops were definitely American and West Coast in nature.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden colour. Aroma. faint aroma, of pine and a bit of stone fruit. Taste. Grapefruit on entry, followed by some nice stone fruit flavours with a piney bitterness.

This doesn't really taste like an IPA at all. It's got an odd maltiness to it, and one that I'm not a fan of. It has a bit of an Asian flavor to it, which resulted in an unwelcome surprise.
