Tap Handle #386: Left Coast - Trestles IPA

Tap size:  11"
Rarity:  Rare
Mounting:  standard 3/8" ferrule on 5/16" anchor bolt

This is an usual tap for the simple fact that it is both bas relief and three dimensional. In fact, it is a good 1.5" to 2" thick, where most bas relief taps are .5" thick or less. The majority of the tap is shaped like a surfboard, with a scenic picture of a pier, beach and ocean. The colors are subtle and beautiful, and the front and back are identical...the two sides match each other as well. The rarity is equivalent to the Left Coast Voo Doo tap that was recently profiled.

Trestles is an Indian Pale Ale that is light bodied, clean, and pleasantly hoppy. With every sip this tasty IPA will take you back to your escape, such as local surf spot Trestles. Its strong copper color and clean finish on the palate are created by brewing with a 2-row malt and light imported crystal malt. CTZ and chinook hops are used and are followed up with the addition of dry hops of chinook and centennial in the fermenter, bringing out a citrus aroma. Weighted average on is 3.62 out of 5.
