COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Dark red orange color. Dark pine and citrus aroma. Big rye bite, resinous pine, honey, biscuit. Pretty malty for an IPA, as it has more rye bite than hop bite, but the resin and aroma are there. Touch of sweetness balanced by the very dry rye.

I knew from the first smell of this beer that it wasn’t gonna quite agree with me. Thankfully I only picked up a four-pack of it. If you’re into the more malty, sweeter and bready double IPAs, then this guy is for you. But if you’re like me that appreciates the full-on hop assault, then this one doesn’t quite fit. Sneaky Pete pours a dark amber color with a modest tan head. The head leaves some nice, sticky lacing around the inside of the glass. As mentioned, the nose is sweet and malty, with some hints of grassy and floral hops. The body is really full and sweet, with lots of caramel and bready malts. There is quite a bit of hops in this beer, but they’re overpowered and shoved off to the side.

Beerenberger (1448) - Fischer, Texas, USA - APR 16, 2014
Aroma of tropical fruit and pine with hints of resin. A cloudy copper pour with a white ring and minimal lacing. The palate is fruity, with notes of biscuit malts and a strong hoppy bitter finish. Alcohol is well hidden.Medium body and crisp carbonation. Overall, another enjoyable IPA.

Aroma is subdued sweet hops. Appearance in off-putfing murky brown but the very nice lingering carbonation makes up for it. Palate is rich. Taste is very complex with many different flavors to draw out.

Amber b0died with a tall beige head, this left rings 0f lace that measured the size 0f each swig fr0m the glass. The ar0ma was a pungent zest f0ll0wed by s0me citrus juices. It tasted quite malty, n0t very bitter in the middle but finished strnger and had an hit 0f alc0h0l. Just 0kay.

Cloudy deep amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is softish and semi dry with good fine carbonation. Sweet creamy malt with a toffee streak. Spicy and sweet piney hops. Whisper of red berry fruits. Light spicy finish. Quite a tasty beer but somewhat disjointed.

scotchzombie (329) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 5, 2014
Pours an opaque prune juice brown-orange with a foamy yellow-white head that quickly settles to a rim and coat. Some wet lacing. Aroma is quite interesting - citrus, floral hops, pepper and quite a bit o honey. Taste evinces great balance in the mouth of this imbiber. Caramel malt bedrock with a diversity of hoppy goodness with moderate bitterness that amps a bit with warming. Flavors of caramel candi, citrus and honey. Finish is dry and balanced sweet and bitter. Moderate carbonation. This beer is a dangerously drinkable IIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours cloudy amber with a decent off white frothy head that lingers long and leaves excellent lacing. Aroma is pine, grapefruit, sweet floral and citrus hoppiness. Taste is heavy sweet, light bitter. Average carbonation, flavors of honey, citrus, something funky like a basement filled with stale bubblegum, raisins, medium body, slick texture and a long sticky finish with overtones of grapefruit and honey.

AKORN (141) - Virginia, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Nice pour medium head, beer is color of honey. Grape fruit and malt are the main aromas with other orangey citrus mixed in. Starts off with the IPA taste and ends with just the ale flavor, sweet and bitter. Nice!
