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.

12oz bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Copper pour with some sticky white head. Wonderful hop aromas - pine, tropical fruit, and resin. Ripe mango and pineapple flavors. Nicely balanced and not too bitter. Easy drinking as well, especially at 10%.

Bottled. Aroma is hop resin and citrus (tangerine/orange). Big nose. A little bit of caramel, but the nose is overwhelmingly hoppy. Clear, orangy pour. Persistent, dense, light tan head with lots of lacing. Sweet caramel malt balanced by citrus/resin hop bitterness. Well balanced, concealing the beer’s alcoholic bite quite well. No hot or solventy notes and the hope bitterness is not overwhelming or astringent. Full, slightly sticky palate. Sneaky Pete is really sneaky. This well-balanced Imperial IPA conceals its hammer blow of alcoholic bliss very well, though the full palate keeps it from tempting one into mistaking it for a more sessionable ale.

Poured a cloudy rusty brown color with a full head. Big aroma of malty citrusness, pine. Big taste. Medium bitter. Medium body, ave carbonation. Pine hop flavors in taste with some grapefruit. This beer has alot going on with a big hop and malt grain flavor. Bitter finish. Almost a wood flavor at end.Not as good as some dipas, but it will do. Thx for the beer inlaws.

Pours to a deep reddish brown body with a creamy light tan head. Excellent lacing. The aroma is citrusy with grapefruit and a lot of malt. I get some spicy rye notes. The flavor is heavily malty. There’s some grassy bitterness with lots of spicy malts. Hops only play a bittering part against that spicy malt. The palate is medium bodied and dry. Moderately creamy. Earthy at times.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 9, 2011
My guess is that we got a bad bottle? It was like a watery Amber Ale..........nothing close to an IIPA. From other reviews it seems like some quality control problems.

Bomber. Pours dark copper/gold and is hazy with a nice chunky white head. Nice citrusy hop nose. Flavor is sweet and sugary with a nice hop profile. Alcohol is upfront. A bit sticky body. More of a sipper than a quaffer. Not bad.

Brown color, overcarbonated. Maybe infection setting in. I have had it with this brewery, their QC and beer both suck.
