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.

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.

Somewhat opaque brown orange with off-white foam head. Aroma is hoppy with some citrus notes. Taste is quite bitter, in fact the bitterness dominates. Aftertaste has some floral honey notes. (Houston 201310)

AWISLguy (1048) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Bomber from Sendiks in Brookfield. Pours a sendimenty brownish amber with an off-white head leaving a little lace. Aroma has pine and caramel, and more caramel. Down through the glass, more citrusy hoppiness showed through. Taste is of sweet toffee, some grapefruit and some pine with a lot of chewy resin. Plus buttery brown sugar. Medium bodied and quite sticky with somewhat low carbonation. Finishes significantly more sweet than bitter, but with some of each, and about medium length. Mostly not been a fan of Laughing Dog’s stuff, and this stays true to form.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 12 oz Bottle. The beer pours to a dark copper color with a small white head. The aroma has a strong citrus, grapefruit & stone fruit scents to it. The taste has a medium body & a nice balanced but bitter finish. Overall A very good DIPA.

On tap. Dark orange pour with thin layer of head. Big, hoppy nose. Wonderfully bitter with excellent balance and well-hidden abv. Pricey, but a very good IIPA.

This is a very special ale from a small brewery in northern Idaho. It has all the hallmarks of a great IIPA. I would always put it in my top 5.

12oz bottle thanks to the cousin from the barrio. Pours cloudy amber with white head. Nose is earthy, citrus and booze. Sip introduces grapefruit. Not a bitter as I expected.
