North Peak Brewing's Scout

Bottoms Up
By Craig Manning | Feb. 10, 2024

Hazy IPAs have been the in-vogue beer style for so long that it’s sometimes hard for any one beer to stand out from the crowd. Enter North Peak’s Scout, which, unlike many hazy IPAs, offers a perfectly balanced drinking experience. It’s less bitter and piney than your traditional IPA, but still offers some of that refreshing hop flavor you want. And there are plenty of fruit notes in there, too—North Peak says you’ll catch mango, peach, strawberry, and pineapple, at minimum—but the beer never feels too sweet. Brewed in tribute to Michigan lighthouses that have “guided many ships to safe waters and saved many sailors from a terrible collision with a rocky shore,” the Scout is the perfect IPA for a northern Michigan winter. Grab a pint at 400 W Front St. in Traverse City. northpeak.net
