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.

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.

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.

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!

Poured from bottle to glass. Clear amber with white head that dissipated to a thin ring. Aroma is hops, citrus, pine, lemon, caramel, floral, honey. Mouthfeel is nice with moderately light body and decent carbonation. Taste is slightly sweet initially followed by a nice bitterness. Overall, this is a decent double IPA.

harrymel (1479) - 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
