Left Coast Brewing Trestles IPA

What the brewers say

“Trestles IPA is light bodied, clean, and pleasantly hoppy. Simcoe and Centennial hops contribute to its great citrus flavor, and... four hops keeps this beer easy drinking and moderately bitter.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “A great floral, fruity hops powerhouse. Grapefruit, grape jelly, and lemon candy. Hints of toffee to add some complexity. A touch of pine resin. Citrus hops notes up front with hints of lemon, tangerine, and pineapple.”

Flavor: “A beautiful blend of sweet, Munich malts, and fruity grape-like hop flavors. The bitterness is not so strong that it overwhelms. Tons of complex hops flavors with notes of tangerine, lemon, some pine, dank, and a hint of pineapple. Hops come through almost candy-like, and finish is dry and bitter but not lingering. Bitterness is spot on.”

Overall: “Grapefruit is definitely the dominating flavor, with a nice supporting complex malt flavor (without cloying sweetness). A beer that delivers on all fronts—a complex, modern take on the IPA that is executed extremely well with variety in the hops character that brings out something new in each sip. Worth seeking out.”
