East the Beast is a surfer's wave, beloved and feared, that barrels and dredges the East Strand of Portrush from powerful north Atlantic waves. A single malt crush under a mass of hops breaks into this fruity IPA. Surf's up... Enjoy the ride... East the Beast is a full on fruity IPA. It giveth forth an aroma of mango and pineapple with a great sparkling head. There is a nice, smooth mouthfeel before the bitterness kicks in and the citrus and fruity tastes, from Mosaic and Citra, linger on the palate for quite a while.
