North Peak’s Tropical Diabolical
By Lynda Wheatley | April 3, 2021
Maybe you had your fill of fruity, umbrella-festooned cocktails on your seaside spring break to sunnier climes. Or maybe, like us, you sat on a saggy lawn chair in your backyard and squinted up at the clouds, hoping for a sliver of sun as you sipped spring break out of a can. Otherwise known as Tropical Diabolical, this limited-time treat is like North Peak Brewing Company’s Diabolical IPA gone wild — on a deluxe vacation to the beaches of Brazil.
Envision it: muy gordo amounts of passion fruit, pineapple, guava, tangerine, and sweet orange peel swimming in the piney bite of the Michigan-grown Chinook hops you know and love in the brewery’s classic Diabolical brew, but now sharpened with the addition of Simcoe, Citra, Crystal, Michigan Cashmere, Au Summer, and Mandarina Bavaria hops, too.
Smooth and citrus-ey, refreshing even on a brown Michigan lawn in April, Tropical Diabolical — with a 6.6% ABV — is strong and sweet enough to take you away. Or welcome you home. Miniature or life-size umbrellas optional. Find a retailer or tap near you at www.northpeakbeer.com.
