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 pours deep semi hazy copper with tan head. The aroma is a mix mostly consisting of pine like resiny hops and some grapefruit. It also offers up lesser amounts of mango, a touch of chili pepper meat and faint buttered popcorn. The taste is similar with rich near vibrant pine and citrus hop resiny bitterness. Those notes are modestly tempered by some sweet malts, a touch of caramel malts and just a sense of butterscotch. The rich hops overshadow and pummel the sweeter notes.

12 ounce bottle into tulip, no bottle date. Pours crystal clear dark red color with 2-3 fingers of a dense khaki head with great retention that reduces to a fairly thick lacing cap. Some lacing clings to the glass as well. Aromas of big caramel, grapefruit, orange, tropical fruit, toasted malt, bread, and honey. Very malty and interesting aromas with good strength. Taste of huge caramel, honey, grapefruit, orange, spice, and light pine. Big sweetness on the front, with a decent amount of bitterness on the finish that lingers for a while with citrus, caramel, spice, and pine. Bitterness balances surprisingly nice with the maltiness, and as a result it is not overly sweet. Medium carbonation and full bodied. Very creamy and slick mouthfeel. Alcohol is really well hiddin, only a slight warming on the finish present. Nice smooth drinkability for the alcohol level, but still a sipper. Overall, quite a nice DIPA from Laughing Dog!

ROGUE (2152) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - AUG 16, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours a crystal clear amber with a nice two finger head with good retention and nice lacing. Big herbal and piney hop aroma with slight sweet citrus undertones. The flavor has just the right amount of boozy sweet malt with a big bitter bite of piney hops. Medium bodied with decent carbonation and a slightly syrupy feel to it.

I picked this up in Cleveland. A very good DIPA. Not in the assault on the plate way, but balance. A tasty, very drinkable, above average mouthfeel, hoppy, malty. A mall crowning amount of head.

bought on my KC trip .. . Pours a very dark amber, really good cream head, lacing is pretty good too .. . quite a large beer- light pine, sap, resin, and a touch of heat .. . the label enrages me a bit, not really, scratch that .. . Pretty good brew, maybe just a bit one dimensional but has a nice backbone- smooth, i wish i had a sixer and not just single ... Nobody told us how difficult it was to raise kids. They almost drove me to fortified wine.

Pours a thick copper color with a thin off-white head. Aroma of caramel, pine, hops, and grapefruit. Lots of grapefruit flavor with caramel, pine and lots of hop bite. Aroma and flavor certainly have presence.

Really smells great. Oh yeah, this is tasty. Some strength, but a lot of flavor, a great hop/malt battle. Wow, I have to buy more of this. This is really really good. I mean, I’m eating bacon and it goes well!

Bomber. Poured deeper, ruddy amber with a nice lookin’ cap of khaki head. The aroma opened with lemon zest, pine hoppage and alcohol initially (kinda like Pine-Sol, but it a good way).. honey really comes through on the back of the nose.. sweeter and almost mead-like back there.. strong and enjoyable. The flavor found a hefty dose of honey plus some grapefruit meat backing.. grapefruit, pine resin, and peppery alcohol around.. finished assertive with alcohol-fueled honey and lots of residual bitterness. Thick feel on the palate with moderate carbonation.. lots of lingering bitterness and warmth.. I enjoyed it.

Bottle for IPA Day (new to me!). Nose is boozy with IIPA malt, sticky caramel malt, honey, white grape. Cloudy ruby-tinged copper pour with a (beautiful) rich and rocky tan head. Taste is bittersweet, leaning toward sweet at first and drying out only slightly to resin and sticky, heavy caramel. Dank, woody hops, thin and papery with low pine and good bite. Citrus is subdued. Full body but not fat. Apricot/peach jam and undeniable green Hallertauer, though in an obviously supporting role. Some nice spicy notes emerge with volume, rye and honey intermingle. The reported alcohol figure is surprisingly high given the taste, as it’s well put together. Needs a little something to balance out the sweetness, but I enjoyed this more than most IIPAs.
