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.

12oz bottle. Nice dark amber pour into my Delirium snifter glass. With it comes a thick fluffy head, with an incredible amount of retention. Aroma has sweet hints of citrus, grapefruit and hops. Flavor was earthy, piney, and hoppy with a solid malt backing. ABV is masked very well in this one. A great solid DIPA and the artwork isnít too bad either.

Multiple hops equal a massive, singular HOP Bomb. Full bodied, thin head, mahogany 2XIPA sweet with alcohol. Paired nicely with Habanero cheese.

Bottle. Love the label. A murky reddish copper pour with a smallish tan head. An extremely pungent aroma of resiny pine trees, spicy grapefruits, tangerines, citrus rinds, lemons, and copious amounts of rich caramel and pumpernickel bread. Medium to full-bodied. Lots of caramel and pumpernickel bread upfront taste-wise. Loads of grapefruits and citrus rinds at the end. Plenty of spiciness and some warming alcohol throughout. Great balance all the way. Excellent!! Over a month in my fridge has done nothing to dampen the intensity of this hop bomb.

Even-toned reddish copper with a cm of white head. Aroma is beautiful tangeriney simcoe plus rich caramel malt. Taste is just as it smell, but with an added spicy buzz and mild roast into the finish. $3/12oz

Big nose, piney, a little citrus. Heavy on the malt, just an absolute great brew. Gorgeous color, one of the best finishing beers that I have had in a while

Bomber from the Foodery in Philly. A pretty dark DIPA, a darker shade of orangish-amber with a one-finger-plus off-white head and good lacing. Pretty nice hoppy aroma with loads of citrus and pine, with lots of malt complexity, rye, honey, and caramel. Caramel and honey malt base with some interesting rye notes. A little too malty if you ask me, but tasty nonetheless. Big citrus (grapefruit) and pine hop notes. Fairly full-bodied with considerable syrupiness. Pretty good overall - a beer with its own identity and some good things going for it. Only criticism really is that itís too malt-forward.

Did I just walk through a pine forest? Ruby gold on the pour with a dense tan head and lots of pine and citrus on the nose. Creamy malt and juicy hops followed by a long bitter finish. The 10% ABV is well hidden enough to lead one to a fierce buzz. Nice lacing on the pint when consuming. This is a tongue bruiser for sure!

Gorgeous amber gold, light retention for how thick the beer is. Gobs and gobs of grapefruit citrus on the nose more than fair amounts of pine hops as well, with a slight earthy perhaps cedar note, hefty malt notes as well. Cedar right off the bat leaves way for the super sweet and sticky citrus/pine, finish is earthy/spicy; good malt backbone! By far the best beer Iíve had for awhile, Sneaky bastard!

Pours orange with a small head that stays thick and hangs around for the duration. Grapefruit and caramel aroma. Sweet flavor, chewy hops, and tropical fruit.
