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.

harrymel (1448) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Bottled two days ago. Cherry red ale with a finger of fleeting off-white foam. Smells astringent and sharp with an acetone, boozy, sweet and chemical nose. Not getting the hops I expect from Laughing Dog. Taste is sweet and fruity/estery. Has a slight flavor similar to the nasty flavor I get from DFH hi gravity beers - sour artificial grape and paint thinner. Although more subtle and more tolerable in this beer than in the DFH. Thin with moderate carb. I’m not satisfied with this one. Glad most of it gets shipped out of the area. Serving type: bottle 01-08-2012

This is a pretty malty double IPA. Lots of biscuity malts, some honied sweetness, but mostly grapefruit and citrus hops.

downender (5912) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle from Total Wines, Sterling VA. Deep amber with a big, tight, off-white head. Boozy nose, with a yeasty edge and plenty of sticky citrus. Very full in the mouth, with candy sugar, blood orange and red fruits, leading to a hoppy and warming finish. Enjoyable.

klaing (116) - Florida, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Cloudy brown pour with medium head. Rich malty aroma. Tastes almost like toffee, pleasantly sweet and hops are not overwhelming, alcohol gives a nice fuzziness to the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

651 ml. bottle. Pours a thick, sea foam, well retained, ivory head, with extensive lacing, over a slightly hazy dark amber (SRM 15) body......nose is sweet malts with tones of toffee/caramel, floral honey, citrus peel, pine.....taste is lightly sweet with toffee/caramel tones, light floral honey notes, pine, grapefruit peel, leading to a soft lingering pine, grapefruit bitterness.....mouth feel medium, soft, slightly sticky, alcohol warmth present, carbonation low with a very light acid finish. As an I/DIPA this is somewhat low in pure hop bitterness, and the sweetness, I assume from the honey, is a bit high.The beer is really quite good, but for usual style standards, needs less sweetness and more brutal hop bitterness. BJCP 8/2/15/5/7

Armadill0 (204) - FINLAND - NOV 11, 2013
Bottle. Brown, almost completely foggy. Small light brown head. Aroma has grapefruit and citrus. Taste has citrus, some malt on the background on the middle. Nice smooth aftertaste with a good level of bitterness. Hop levels are pretty high, really close to the maximum for this beer. Good stuff.
