Sneaky Pete is a blend of five hop types: Simcoe, Glacier, Centennial, Vanguard and Hallertuaer, with Simcoe playing the dominate role at 30%. In addition, three separate malts were used: Honey Malt, Rye Malt, and Munich Malt. The brew has a copious aroma of white grapefruit, citrus overtones, a complex rich middle and long flavors in the finish; a real beauty. Finished with wild clover honey.

DesertDevil (673) - Arizona, USA - OCT 3, 2015
12-oz. bottle. Malt-heavy nose with caramel and rich toffee tones and a touch of hoppy pine resin. Deep sunset orange color. Sharp pine bitterness bites hard upon the first sip before a sweet orange flavor and a hint of honey temper it somewhat. Traces of alfalfa and old stale barley come into play. Slick mouthfeel with a very abrupt dry finish. Not very impressive at all.

On cask at Churchkey beer bar, D.C. It.looks great, smell is super west coast dipa piney, mouthfeel is smooth almost oily. Taste is a good balance between hops and malt. Iíve liked what Iíve had by Laughing Dog in the past and this is no exception. Would buy this again.

Big sweet malty aroma followed by a subtle hoppiness. Thereís a LOT of malt like a huge syrup sweet farm of malt. Almost too much, this is rough. Tastes is maple syrup, brown sugar and alcohol. This probably sounds delicious to some but this isnít my cup of ipa. Itís really sweet and almost cloying. Iím not sure about this one, I wish I could have it on draft to see if itís better but right now the one I have is really sweet and tough to get through.

ordybill (824) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- A thick smelling blend of strong hops and a touch of malt, very good. Appearance- Pours a golden brown with a slight amount of haze. Has a medium off-white head. Taste- A big hop and yeast flavor that hides the high ABV. Really enjoyable. Palate- A heavy bodied beer with moderate carbonation, has a very creamy texture. Overall- A very good American DIPA, It is hard to find in Georgia but I would buy it again.

clueo (161) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 18, 2015
I like the beer, but itís a bit sweet for me. The bear pours a bronze color into a goblet glass with a small head. The smell and taste are dominated by honey and citrus. The aftertaste is very smooth. It does not taste like it has 10% ABV at all, which makes it extra "sneaky"...
