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.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 2, 2011
Bottle: Pours a clear deep bronze orange with a well-lacing clingy froth of off-white head. Has a lightly oxidized sweet caramel nose with lots of resiny grapefruity hops. Starts with a rich chewy sweetness with some sugary notes and light fruitiness giving way to a healthy dose of citrusy bittering and flavor hops before a drier bittersweet grapefruity finish. Big in malt and hops, this could almost be a triple IPA.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a stunning amber color with a dense off-white head. The nose is piney with citrus undertones. The flavor is very piney on the hop side but with caramel, toast, and dark bread notes from the malt. Lots of malt balance to this brew. Medium bodied with average carbonation leading to a long, bitter finish. Definitely worth a try for any hop head.

osu97gp (678) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2011
Pours a cloudy orange/brown with a medium sized tan head. Aroma of citrus, pine and some caramel malts. Flavor is bready with caramel, spices, citrus, grapefruit and grass. Amazingly easy to drink for the alcohol content, almost a little to easy. This is a dangerous beer.

Strykzone (6273) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2011
Clear and dark copper in color with a nice two finger orange head. A nice nose of sweet complex fruit and caramel. Big hop flavors kick in from the start. They are pine, tangerine, biscuit, flowers, and some grapefruit late. Alcohol is barely hidden. This one is right down the middle and there is nothing to not like. A winner from Laughing Dog.

Padron4KM (790) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - APR 25, 2011
12 oz bottle, no freshness date.
Hazy amber with a fleeting tan head, but nice lace.
Initial aroma is a blast of citrusy hops. Hiding underneath is sweet earth, nuts and caramel, but you really have to agitate to bring those out.
Flavor is pine and citrus hops with sweet malt backing it up. Warming alcohol.
Finish has a little peppery bite, along with a lasting bitterness.
Nicely done.

Oh...this is from Laughing Dog? Didn’t know that until I looked it up. So...nice imperial here albeit a tad cloying. Not entirely complex: mostly grapefruit with some nice citrus, but it stands pretty well in two dimensions. Expertly hidden alcohol content.
