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.

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 (1963) - 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 (6036) - 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 (3154) - 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 (3584) - 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 (2205) - 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.

daknole (8851) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 24, 2011
Orange pour. odd aroma. Some oranges, spicy hops, rye, spices, yeast. Flavor is bitter hops, some odd buttery cheesy note, crackers. This one seems a bit overrated to me.

ben4321 (3750) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 24, 2011
Location: Bottle at the Foodery, 4/9/11

Aroma: The nose has grapefruit, pine, caramel, rye, and perhaps some nutty notes
Appearance: It poured a darkish orange color with a decent sized head and good lacing
Flavor: Mid sweet taste with grapefruit and caramel malts and big pine/citrus hop bitter finish
Palate: The body leans toward the full side, the carbonation is fairly soft, and it has just a touch of heat
Overall Impression: Overall, this made for a pretty enjoyable DIPA. Solid stuff, with some fairly interesting components to it. A nice, well-made beer.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 23, 2011
12oz bottle from phaleslu - thanks, Peter! Cloudy, frothy deep golden pour, with a thick head, and some sticky lacing. Herbal nose, no doubt courtesy of the Hallertau, and it gets close to tussling with the more floral Simcoe notes, but is still inviting and coherent overall. Thick mouthfeel, a bit more slick than I like it perhaps. Taste is quite nice, certainly on the chewy or malty side (unlike the nose), but hops are still prominent and the beer’s well balanced. Not especially distinctive or memorable but a goodern.

Pretty much as others describe. Smells like socks. Too much rye forward. Way too boozy. I’m probably being too harsh with the scores, but the curve for DIPA’s is very tough in my book. I can still drink it, but I’m really just trying to get it over with so I can move on to a Torpedo.
