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.

Aroma is hoppy as expected but it is also a bit nutty, or roasted grain. Pours a deep reddish amber hue with a small cream colored head. Taste is dark and roasted with the grain adding as much to the bitterness as the hops. The malt is smokey and offset by a slight sour citrus note of the hops. Interesting.

From a bottle poured an amber color with a small amount of head. Hoppy flavor with a bitter finish.

Bottle. This initially looked like a ruddy copper, but it appears almost as a pretty ruby copper body when held to light. A dense light khaki head sits on top leaving lots of legs on the glass. The nose is deep grapefruit and wood. There is also some hazelnut to complement a light donut character. The taste has lots of caramel and hints of wood. There is not really any citrus, it comes across more like pineapple or passion fruit. The finish is sticky sweet with some notes of milk chocolate. This is a solid, malt forward double IIPA. Another good one from Laughing Dog.

Another nice laughing dog brew. Fully-bodied, lots of grapefruit hops to it, a bit bready, dry, bitter finish. Very drinkable.

Found this one pleasant to drink. If youre looking forward to an Imperial IPA dont buy this cause it really is a misrepresentation of the style. I would label it an american strong or possibly an amber. The taste is caramel sweetness and some booze with mellow hops. Maybe a bit of an old bottle but the hops were very muted.

Burnt red color.creamy head ,great lacing that just froze to the side of the glass.Interesting aroma strong herbal unique scent,same in the flavor, thick chewy malt, herbal bittering. I enjoyed this alot more than SN barelywine, as it was my first barleywine also. Very pungent hop presence.Malty smooth but not too sticky. Defenatley enjoyed this more than drinking a couple above average ambers i had just drank.

A boozy amber, not an ipa finish, I like the malt profile however which is on the sweeter side

12oz bottle. Nice, hazy orange color, 2 finger light tan dense head that left some neat lacing. Hoppy nose-smell, delicious bitter taste, some sweetness. Fruity aroma, gradual finish. Tasty and complex, and suprisingly no alcohol taste. Well-done.

Bottle from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Purs dark ruddy copper with a slight off-white head. Warmmalty aroma with a hint of earthy. Fulll boided. Lots of caramel. Hop is smooth, but not strongly bitter - sort of like a bitter barley wine. It has really great flavor.
