Nice, mellow tropical fruit flavour that’s muddled together, and joining the fruit is a slightly musky, green and loamy hop character that lingers like a hot summer day.


Taste follows some of the cue from the nose, but the fruit gets punched up into a stronger citrus along with the tropical fruit. But the hops comes in fright on their heels and bring down the sweetness, letting the character of the pineapple and mango rise up along with the earthy notes of the hops. Medium body and fairly smooth mouthfeel give it all a pleasant feel, and the taste fades off leaving a touch of fruity sweetness behind.


A perfect beer to pair up with Korean fried chicken with poutine.


Pours a darker yellow that will remind you of apricot juice, a hazy body, and light carbonation. A finger’s worth of foamy head clings to the top of the glass.

More than a few radical craft breweries make their home in Portland, Oregon, and Breakside is making the most of it. Knocking out craft beer since 2010, Breakside Brewery has become a staple in the Portland area and even expanded outside Portland itself, opening up a larger-scale production facility in Milwaukie, OR. Multiple other locations have sprung up over the years, allowing Breakside to provide their tasty brew at a scale that can cross the continent, but also allowing each location to brew their own unique beers. Now they cultivate the neighborhood and the world with equal efficiency and intimacy. Quite the balancing act for a crew that started in a basement. What Rough Beast is a hazy IPA brewed in typical New England-style but with a slight twist on its character. Strong tropical fruit aromas and flavours, with a dank quality to balance it all out. Serves well at 8°C and should be cracked soon.
