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.

Pretty decent IIPA, glad it has the high ABV...but in all honesty it canít hang with the big dogs. Good but not great.

ordybill (596) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- A thick smelling blend of strong hops and a touch of malt, very good. Appearance- Pours a golden brown with a slight amount of haze. Has a medium off-white head. Taste- A big hop and yeast flavor that hides the high ABV. Really enjoyable. Palate- A heavy bodied beer with moderate carbonation, has a very creamy texture. Overall- A very good American DIPA, It is hard to find in Georgia but I would buy it again.

I like the beer, but itís a bit sweet for me. The bear pours a bronze color into a goblet glass with a small head. The smell and taste are dominated by honey and citrus. The aftertaste is very smooth. It does not taste like it has 10% ABV at all, which makes it extra "sneaky"...

Bottle. Pours a transparent amber with a thin ring of off white head. Aroma is interesting. Malty, hops, hints of rye. Taste of is similar to the aroma, with some added caramel.

This is a dark hoppy IPA that is smooth and filling. It is very hoppy and statifying. Nice aroma as well.

Bulk_Carrier (2672) - Final Resting Place, Vermont, USA - APR 21, 2015
This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a slim fingerís worth of white foaminess that quickly dissipated leaving some stringy lacing roaming here and there. The smell had a decent sweet grapefruit with a slight grassiness and a decent caramel malt backbone. The taste copied the smell and brought in a slight extra citrus to give off a slight bittersweet appeal. A bitter citrus aftertaste leads to a quick dry caramel/citrus finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a more sipping quality about it. The carbonation seemed fairly rounded out, slightly smooth and didnít have the expected punch that I wanted in a DIPA. Overall, at 10% and lack of harshness, Iím wondering if this was old. I didnít see any date on the bottle, probably only have again if I knew it was fresh.

radio_nowhere (1111) - Maryland, USA - APR 17, 2015
Draft sample at the Cherry Blossom Beer & Wine fest a week ago, orangy-amber color with off-white head. Aroma notes of grapefruity/citrus/herbal hops and caramel malt sweetness. Taste adds pine/resin, bread and faint honey sweetness. Moderate-heavy body, low-moderate carbonation, thick, dry, sticky with bitter grass/citrus hop finish. Nice strong DIPA.

dhasmonek (38) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 8, 2015
Very tasty with good aroma of sweetness. Golden color, but without much head or lacing. It could use more carbonation. High alcohol content of 10%.

DuffMan (7798) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 24, 2015
On tap @ the brewpub, the first stop on TvMís Bachelor Party Northwest Ale Trail Expedition. Light orange, average white head. Big aroma of candyish ripe tropical fruits, hints of Swedish Berries. Sweet palate, with loads of oily hoppy goodness, mango, papaya, ending with an intense bitterness, boozy undertones.
