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.

This is a pretty malty double IPA. Lots of biscuity malts, some honied sweetness, but mostly grapefruit and citrus hops.

downender (6151) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle from Total Wines, Sterling VA. Deep amber with a big, tight, off-white head. Boozy nose, with a yeasty edge and plenty of sticky citrus. Very full in the mouth, with candy sugar, blood orange and red fruits, leading to a hoppy and warming finish. Enjoyable.

klaing (116) - Florida, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Cloudy brown pour with medium head. Rich malty aroma. Tastes almost like toffee, pleasantly sweet and hops are not overwhelming, alcohol gives a nice fuzziness to the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

651 ml. bottle. Pours a thick, sea foam, well retained, ivory head, with extensive lacing, over a slightly hazy dark amber (SRM 15) body......nose is sweet malts with tones of toffee/caramel, floral honey, citrus peel, pine.....taste is lightly sweet with toffee/caramel tones, light floral honey notes, pine, grapefruit peel, leading to a soft lingering pine, grapefruit bitterness.....mouth feel medium, soft, slightly sticky, alcohol warmth present, carbonation low with a very light acid finish. As an I/DIPA this is somewhat low in pure hop bitterness, and the sweetness, I assume from the honey, is a bit high.The beer is really quite good, but for usual style standards, needs less sweetness and more brutal hop bitterness. BJCP 8/2/15/5/7

Armadill0 (255) - FINLAND - NOV 11, 2013
Bottle. Brown, almost completely foggy. Small light brown head. Aroma has grapefruit and citrus. Taste has citrus, some malt on the background on the middle. Nice smooth aftertaste with a good level of bitterness. Hop levels are pretty high, really close to the maximum for this beer. Good stuff.

deekyn (1125) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 10, 2013
A- pours a hazy rich amber with a light red one finger of head and good lacing. S- floral notes are strong with some caramel malts, Belgium yeast, bubble gum and pine resin. M- medium viscous body with a sticky medium palate and good carbonation. T- floral and resin notes start off. Cinnamon shows some vitality when colder. Sweet caramel malts, sugar water, candies apples and faint honey are next. Some clove character like a saison follow with the pronounced ending featuring some citrus character and more malts. Good autumn IPA.

Very dark for an IIPA. Pine cone aroma, not all found in the taste, which is slightly sour. Very creamy mouth feel

4-pack for 6.99. Pours a clear golden amber with an off-white head. Smells mostly like floral hops but there is a malt aroma in there as well. Taste is quite balanced between the two flavors with a toffee malt flavor coming through pretty strongly. Hoppy bitterness dominates the end though. Body is thicker with a creamy texture as well. Quite a good DIPA that hides its ABV nicely and is dangerously easy to drink. Not a mindblowing beer but definitely a very good value for what I paid for it.
