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.

Medium sized offwhite head with good retention and nice sticky lacing. Lightly hazy, amber/orange color. Nose of citrus, light melon notes, a hint resiny, light earthyness. Body is medium and nicely oily on the palate, nice carbonation, soft and smooth. Grapefruit flavors up front, nice fruity notes and faint malts, lightly sweet. Some vinous notes as well. Lightly sweet finish that could definately use some more bittering hops. This would round out this beer nicely. No way this is 10% ABV. Too easy drinkin for that alcohol level. Bottle procured @statelineliquors.

Dark orange pour with a white head. Strong citrus aroma on the front. A little pine resin. Flavor is nicely hopped with a good malt backbone. Not bad. Maybe a little sweet, but not boozy. Ok.

Suttree (5142) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 27, 2011
Cloudy brown, thin white head. Smells like grapefruit, brown sugar, and some toffee and caramel. Flavor is much more dry and bitter than the aroma would indicate, with a lot of grapefruit and woodsy hop bite. Despite the odd disconnect ’twixt the smell andflavor, I like this beer. Would buy again.

Wow! Hop Slam watch out! Medium bodied great carbonation. I get honey and hops but they are balanced out very welll with each other. Lots of hops throughout the palate but never too biter and at 10% this beer is very dangerous. Also price point is great!

TheGB (510) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAR 26, 2011
Pours a nice dark amber color. Nice aroma of honeyed hops and some light malt. Taste is medium bodied with a really nice smooth palate, even though there is a lot of hops there.

Bottle. Dark amber/copper pour with a rocky beige head. Strong citrus notes, caramel, pine and chewy malt in the nose. Taste is citrus fruit, spicy hops, caramel, sweet malt, pine, and tea leaves. Body is medium-full and chewy with strong dense carbonation. Also rather sticky in spots. Finishes with more caramel, spicy hops, citrus oils, pine, and chewy malt. Melon tea and peach come through at differing times during the finish.

ruskiimperial (308) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 24, 2011
Poured a dark hazy copper with a good two finger’s worth of rich yellow/white foam. The aroma is just bursting with hops going in all directions. There’s earthy, aromatic, citrus, and just plain old bitter. Taste is quite strong on the strong citrus, though the clover honey certainly keeps it from being a palate buster. On the aftertaste that honey sticks around a good bit, though so do the high alfa acids. A wonderous brew, very comparable to hopslam, though with none of the hype and more character.

Big sweet citrus fruit nose, with just a bit of onion/garlic. Taste is moderately sweet, moderately bitter, lots of citrus, some grapefruit, a touch of asparagus.

ddemmingjr (704) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - MAR 21, 2011
Pours cloudy reddish, amber with a fluffy white head. Sticky lacing.great, deep color looks appetizing. Grapefruit, pine, resin, orange, spice hops, sweet caramel hops on the nose. Balance of sweet malts, sticky on the lips, grassy, resin hops that power through on a real bitter finish that resonates. I must say, this is up there with Founder’s Devil Dancer in terms of rye malt and simcoe balance. Outstanding beer from Laughing Dog.

Skip all the talk about hops, aroma, etc and get down to the bottom line. This is a very good tasting IPA. Very smooth. Yes, complex in aroma. Not the best IPA out there but very very good.
