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.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2011 Bottle: pours a lovely copper color with a creamy head that dissipates fairly slowly leaving nice lacing on the glass. Aromas present are that wonderful citrus hop smell that becomes a pine aroma in your nose with a hint of toffee hidden behind it. The flavors are amazing... Everything from the citrus hops, to a caramel sweetness, and a wonderful maltiness. Nice job with this one.

Poured dark copper colo with medium creamy head. Earthy citrus aroma with some mild hops. Flavor is excellent, very balanced malt and hops. Overall an excellent iipa, has great balance and alcohol is mild.

12 oz bottle into a DFH signature glass. A - Deep amber/copper body. Tan head, loads of lacing and retention. S - Biscuity malts, caramel, piney resinous hops. T - Great balance between caramel malts and piney hops. Alcohol is slightly noticable on the end. Not excessively bitter. Smooth and velvety mouthfeel. O - A nice double IPA. Doesn’t really stand out, and it certainly seems like an east coast style IPA due to the malty backbone. The label is really great.

Nice Double IPA with a good mix of hops and high alcohol yeald. A little tough to get through the whole thing at the time and would love to try on tap.

Cybercat (2990) - Georgia, USA - JUL 19, 2011
Strong aroma is hoppy to the point of being evergreen and has traces of yeast and fruity sweetness. It pours a dark golden amber with a fairly thick off-white head. Flavor is quite hoppy, as expected, with woody, bitter and mild fruity undertones, just a touch of sweetness. Smooth texture has a fairly strong hoppy fizz. Sneaky? Maybe - and definitely hoppy.

WesKBob (563) - Bethany, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 19, 2011
Pours a hazy copper-orange color. Thin white head. Aroma is caramel up front, followed with hints of piney hops. Flavor is similar, but the hops are more complex, with some grapefruit/citrus notes to go along with the pine. A hint of honey in the finish. Slightly dry finish. Certainly hides the high ABV well. Not the greatest DIPA I’ve ever had, but very refreshing.

FunkyBrewster (1517) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 18, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2011 12 oz bottle. Pours a very dark amber golden color with a small off white froth. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus and some strong caramel backbone. Slight pine character and just a hint of roasty nuttiness. Flavor starts very sweet, wow this clover honey is bursting, its cool with the ipa but a bit much. A bit of a roasty cocoa character and citric fruitiness, almost like a chocolate covered orange in there. Finishes lightly bitter and roasty. Medium body and a bit sharper carbonation. Definitely an interesting ipa, this rating might change, still kind of getting used to it

eaglefan538 (2828) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUL 18, 2011
Poured a dark orange-amber color, decent initial head, weak lacing. The aroma was strong crystal malt teabags, some nutty or musty tones, citrus and pine. Flavor followed, residual sweetness too strong in a teabag fashion, caramel prominent. Mouthfeel full bodied, slightly sticky. Was surprised it was listed at 10%ABV, they did manage to hide that quite well.

Goodgrief (1742) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Darker pour with with nice looking head. Flavor was predominantly teabag like flavors with some non-distinct bitterness. I like teabag flavors but this was just a little to sweet and kinda sticky. Another meh Laughing Dog beer.
