The Oddbins Take

Some things just don't translate across the Atlantic; a British person could spend a quarter of a century explaining what black pudding is and an American would still have questions. "It's pudding but you eat it at breakfast and it's made with blood, eww, what's wrong with you?" Then again, British people don't eat cheese out of spray cans so we guess both nations have horrifying eating habits. Who's to say one is worse than the other? (... Squeezy cheese is worse... infinitely worse.)

Tailgate parties also never made it into the UK; you go to watch a football game, which is played with your hands, you along with 80,000 people are able to find a parking space and then instead of going to the pub non-drivers stand around your truck, drinking? Fine, that all seems to be in order. Thankfully, Tailgate beer has made the jump over the pond. This intense Grapefruit IPA is dry and light bodied with a fresh and hoppy aroma that has strong floral notes of lemongrass and mango and is packed with grapefruit. In fact, it's so delicious it makes being in a car park kind of enjoyable.

About The Brewery

Tailgate started out brewing in Nashville in 2014 and have grown significantly over the last 3 years. They started with a 3-barrel system and they now operate a 50-barrel system. Brewed with a "beer first" philosophy, meaning that no matter how experimental the flavours get, the beer itself always shines through. Tailgate specialise in small batch and seasonally appropriate craft beer, although the Grapefruit IPA is in their core-range, all year round. Grapefruit IPA is a dry and light bodied IPA with a fresh and hoppy aroma that has strong floral notes of lemongrass and mango and is packed with grapefruit. On the palate, a strong and hoppy bite is followed by a dry and rather bitter finish.
