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.

omhper (19336) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2011
Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear amber, rich head. Striking perfumy nose with gooseberry and black currant. Sweet and full bodied with loads of perfumy hops. Hugely bitter finish. Though getting a bit syrupy, the zesty massive hoppiness outweighs that, and it remains a relatively drinkable hop bomb.
