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.

Deep amber, moderate to large tannish head, foamy, nice lacing. Strong resiny nose, pithy, slight alcohol and hops. Fruity malt aroma, not unlike a dubbel. Pours cloudy but settles quickly into a clear amber. Weird. Moderately sweet dark fruit flavor with hint of citrus. Hops are well blended and not overpowering as the trend seems to be lately. Alcohol is muted. Body is medium. Texture is chewy. When warmer, the beer finishes with a fairly dry mandarin orange taste. A nice double. Balanced in all regards. Good job.

Davhgbrew (888) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Poured a murky brown w/ a huge head. Aroma is alcohol and dried fruit. Syrupy palate. Flavor is nicely balanced malt to hops. Not as hoppy as I would expect from an imperial iPa. There is citrus, grass, alcohol, and chocolate. I was pleasantly impressed w/ everything about this brew except the finish, which has a bit of an unpleasant aftertaste. I think its the breath of grapefruit.

HeistAlmighty (1043) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - AUG 18, 2013
650ml bottle. Nicely balanced DIPA, strong grapefruit and resin hops offset with a creamy malt. Not a hop bomb for sure, maybe I didn’t get to the bottle fresh enough, but it made it rather easy drinking for sure a strong and thick beer. Overall, "balance" is the word of the day.

Pours amber with nice big head, aroma is sweet and pine, with a hint a simco cat piss. Taste is big sweet and bitter, not a bad finish though, pretty tasty.

On tap. Great clear golden yellow color, nice head and lacing. Nose is balanced hops and pine and dry grasses. Nice bitter dry attack, grass, hops, earthy. No overly sweet tones that are common for high abv beers. Really liked it.
