1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Brown color, overcarbonated. Maybe infection setting in. I have had it with this brewery, their QC and beer both suck.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dirty orange pour, decent head and a grainy herbal hop aroma. Flavor was bitter orange/grapefruit, more herbal and boozy hops and finished with a little alcohol warmth. Decent, would definitely buy again at $9/bottle.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Much thanks to Chris K. for this bottle!
Pours a murky, deep copper. Bubblegum in the nose? More resin hop smell rather than sharp, brighter citrus notes. Weighty mouthfeel. Kinda "dark" and sugary/sweetish. More resin and pine, grassier hop character. Something weirdly cool in the aftertaste is a dryness that reminds me very slightly of brett funk. Smooth and maybe more barleywine like to me? Deamnds attention. Not one to quaff with pizza, wings or the game. Something to savor. Pretty good.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sneaky Pete pours a cloudy rust color, with a two-finger tan head that lightly laces throughout. The brew smells of strong hops, banana, and clove. The beer, being an imperial IPA, is bitter with a strong hop character. This is a medium bodies brew with a sticky head has a soft tongue feel and a lingering bitterness. This is a beer that is worth purchasing and carries high abv (10%). It’s a nice sipping brew.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A nice caramel color with a off-white head. A hoppy aroma with some caramel.The taste has lots of hops and malt that give flavors of some pine, grass, and citrus flavors with a long finish. A great, sweet IIPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sudsy chestnut with a creamy tan topper. Aroma is rich and malty with alcohol, toffee, fruit, caramel and citrus. Nice, but no DIPA. Taste of alcohol, deep toffee, fruit, caramel and mild citrus and grains. Light bitterness on the back end, this one seems more imperial red than imperial IPA. That being said, it’s not all that bad.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours murky brown orange with no head and an oily appearance. Aroma is resinous with a heavy pine and citrus boost. Caramel malts. Bitter mouth with oil slick pine resin and a mouthcoating boozy bitter finish. Palate wrecking awesome.
