Pretty decent discovery while down in Nashville...wasn't expecting much, and first thing I've had from TailGate. Tastes like a west coaster (I assume the Southeast is more a reference to the region rather than an effort to create a new style) but with less of a citrus taste. Citrus does come through in the smell, along with pine, but the citrus is more in the background in the taste, with some nice pine and a little background malt. Pretty good balance, looks nice (straw/orange, with a decent head), and was really good going down with some Baja fish tacos. Definitely wouldn't mind going for it again when I'm in town.

Described to me by a rep as a west coast IPA, there's definitely a malt balance to this one (though I'm not sure I understand the "Southeast" reference). Look is a golden straw body with a solid white head. Smell is bright, citrusy, piney, with a noticeable earthy maltiness. The taste is unbelievably dry and surprisingly short, just a punch of citrus pith, a little berry, some pine resin, and a little lemon grass, then a slightly bitter aftertaste. Bit of a let down after an attractive aroma. Feel is pretty standard, maybe a little light.

Poured into a snifter from a growler. Fairly dark amber-orange clear hue with a foamy white head. Nice retention and lacing. Big pine and some citrus on the nose, little malt presence. A big IPA bitter taste with plenty of pine, orange, grapefruit, berry, and some scratchy earth tones. The malt is there but takes a backseat. Medium-bodied and a clean, dry finish. Very nice.
