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.

Color is much too dark, reddish amber with dark sandstone tan head. Lots of caramel malt in the nose, way too much. Very resinous and oily with some citrus zest and pine. Heavy mouthfeel and lasting bitterness. Some citrusy notes, burnt sugar.

chronictonic (473) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2011
bottle from Hawthornes - cloudy orange pour with very little head that quickly dissipates. Citrus resin sappy aromas, with hints of some oxidized hops. Mouthfeel is smooth and round finishing sharp and twangy. Hops are towards the sweeter side up front - sticky and sweet. Flavor finishes bitter, but that wet paper oxidation of hops that have started to go south is prevalent, though certainly not to the point where the beer is unenjoyable.

thirdeye11 (5620) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 14, 2011
(12oz bottle thanks to bu11zeye) rich amber with fine bubbled tan head. Nose of mango, pretty fresh, mildly dank. Taste of pine, pineapple, rich flavor, caramel, pretty hoppy but good residual sugars to back it up.

Date: September 5, 2011 Mode: Bottle Source: Ridgeview Liquors, Green Bay, WI Appearance: Light brown, slight amount of head. Aroma: Hoppy and caramel. Flavor: Consistent with aroma with an alcohol finish. Other: Excellent double, very drinkable for someone that is not a huge fan of this style.

BVery (6843) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2011
Bottle from Ridgeview Liquors in Green Bay, WI. Hazy brown/orange pour with a soapy off-white head. Huge aroma of citrus hops and caramel malt. Full creamy mouthfeel. Assertive citrus hop flavor with earthy, grassy, and caramel malt elements. Finishes dry (probably because of the high ABV). Tremendous DIPA.

unclemike (2280) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - SEP 3, 2011
Medium sized offwhite head with good retention and nice sticky lacing. Lightly hazy, amber/orange color. Nose of citrus, light melon notes, a hint resiny, light earthyness. Body is medium and nicely oily on the palate, nice carbonation, soft and smooth. Grapefruit flavors up front, nice fruity notes and faint malts, lightly sweet. Some vinous notes as well. Lightly sweet finish that could definately use some more bittering hops

Jabswitch (278) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 2, 2011
Great Beer. Malty,slightly medicinal aroma. Nice deep amber and cloudy in appearance. Malty toastty sweetness on the first sip. Nice bitter bite for a finish. Hard to hide 10% abv - but this beer does it well. I found that the malts hid the hops which normally would bother me. But this beer has a very pleasant flavor. It’s pricy, but well worth it.

Ibrew2or3 (7055) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 27, 2011
12oz bottle pours deep semi hazy copper with tan head. The aroma is a mix mostly consisting of pine like resiny hops and some grapefruit. It also offers up lesser amounts of mango, a touch of chili pepper meat and faint buttered popcorn. The taste is similar with rich near vibrant pine and citrus hop resiny bitterness. Those notes are modestly tempered by some sweet malts, a touch of caramel malts and just a sense of butterscotch. The rich hops overshadow and pummel the sweeter notes.

superspak (2778) - Michigan, USA - AUG 25, 2011
12 ounce bottle into tulip, no bottle date. Pours crystal clear dark red color with 2-3 fingers of a dense khaki head with great retention that reduces to a fairly thick lacing cap. Some lacing clings to the glass as well. Aromas of big caramel, grapefruit, orange, tropical fruit, toasted malt, bread, and honey. Very malty and interesting aromas with good strength. Taste of huge caramel, honey, grapefruit, orange, spice, and light pine. Big sweetness on the front, with a decent amount of bitterness on the finish that lingers for a while with citrus, caramel, spice, and pine. Bitterness balances surprisingly nice with the maltiness, and as a result it is not overly sweet. Medium carbonation and full bodied. Very creamy and slick mouthfeel. Alcohol is really well hiddin, only a slight warming on the finish present. Nice smooth drinkability for the alcohol level, but still a sipper. Overall, quite a nice DIPA from Laughing Dog!

ROGUE (2120) - Newark, Delaware, USA - AUG 16, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours a crystal clear amber with a nice two finger head with good retention and nice lacing. Big herbal and piney hop aroma with slight sweet citrus undertones. The flavor has just the right amount of boozy sweet malt with a big bitter bite of piney hops. Medium bodied with decent carbonation and a slightly syrupy feel to it.
