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.

marcus (6438) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 20, 2011
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours amber with a nice beige head and a citrus aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor with lots of citrus and pine. This one is a bit sweeter than many DIPAs, but the flavor is quite nice with a good amount of bitterness.

Chipper (303) - Red Lion, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2011
Deep copper pour with a moderate off white head. Big bitter hops and noticeable sweet malt at the back. Smooth but not my favorite style. The alcohol is well hidden and it has a nice finish.

wlajwl (3817) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 16, 2011
Pine-citrus in the aroma while the appearance is cloudy amber. The flavor has a slight funkiness in it that is hard to place, otherwise its typical dry-pine DIPA. A little different from other DIPAs and good for it.

Heathen (1458) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 14, 2011
THOUGHTS: Nice. Just kept from being cloying and bad. It really straddled the line between extreme and too much Reminded me slightly of Dogfish Head 90 minute, but only slightly. Hid alcohol incredibly well. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a medium to dark, reddish orange that was nearly brown in the glass with a small, off-white head that mostly diminished and left fair lacing. The aroma had moderate caramel; heavy pine, grapefruit and orange hops; lighter floral hops; peach; honey; brown sugar; oranges; and tropical fruit nectar. The initial flavor was moderate to heavily sweet and lightly bitter; while the finish was heavy to almost harshly sweet and rather to heavily bitter with a fairly long duration. There was caramel, orange, citrus hops, grapefruit hops, pine hops, honey, flowers, brown sugar, and earthy and funky hops. The medium to full body was oily and then slightly dry with tingly carbonation and a slightly alcoholic and ever so slightly metallic finish.

Lowe1983 (1346) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUN 11, 2011
Pours a darker amber color with an almost light brown head. Aroma is of rye, citrus and floral hops, and some caramel malts. Flavor is strong with plenty of the citrus hops, caramel and rye malts on the finish as well. Just a hint of some warming on the finish as well.

Capa (1987) - Manama, BAHRAIN - JUN 9, 2011
Deep copper with a white head. Fresh citrus hops, medium sweet malts in the nose. Flavor is full of the fresh citrus hops, sweet malts, sugary, grapefruit. Bitter and lingering finish with a bit of dryness. Pretty boozey in the end as it get a tad warmer. Good beer.

Svesse (6066) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2011
(Bottle, Oliver Twist, Stockholm) Dark amber colour with foamy, beige head. Fruity, hoppy nose with grapefruit, resin, pine needles, orange peel and caramel. Fruity, malty taste with notes of caramel, citrus peel, treacle, pine needles and resin in a fairly bitter finish with a certain alcohol sweetness. Almost full body, fairly sweet. Very nice and tasty.

thegreenrooster (3194) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 28, 2011
Pour is a dark amber with a large white head. Aroma is fruity and caramel malt with hops in the backround. Flavor is thick and chewy and here is where the hops stand out. Big pine hops are there with a sweet caramel malt. Really flavorfull almost agressive hop profile. Leaves a little caramel malt on the tounge as this goes down. Solid and alcohol is well hidden making this dangerous.

nearbeer (3677) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 25, 2011
12 oz. Big nose of earthy resin, tangerine, and caramel-dipped banana. Clear orange-amber with a nice spittle of a head. Flavor starts with luscious orange-grapefruit, caramel, banana; picked up nicely with some minty evergreen, dried wood, and beeswax on the drying finish. Medium-heavy body is smooth, with well-hidden abv, and nicely dry.

glennmastrange (2241) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAY 25, 2011
Bottle. Moderate malt aromas of roasted and caramel, moderate to heavy pine for the hops, moderate soap and dough for the yeast, with date and solvent in the background. Head is large, frothy, light orange/tan with good lacing and good legs and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky, medium orange/red. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and lightly acidic, and finishes lightly sweet and acidic and heavily to harshly bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, oily with a soft carbonation and a finish that’s moderately astringent, lightly alcoholic and slightly sticky. It’s got some harshness in spots, but this DIPA is full of robust aromas and flavors, and is nicely balanced.
