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.

Really smells great. Oh yeah, this is tasty. Some strength, but a lot of flavor, a great hop/malt battle. Wow, I have to buy more of this. This is really really good. I mean, I’m eating bacon and it goes well!

UPDATED: APR 23, 2012 One of my favorites, but must be drank from tulip glass or snifter to mute alcohol. Lots of fruit and hops with a hint of tobacco. Delicious brew.

Tap. Copper with cram foamy head that dissipated, light lacing. Smells nice and grape fruity and maybe a little peachy. Nice bitter flavor- not sweet. Nice hoppy finish.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2013 Dark orange/amber. Minimal soapy head. Aroma of mild citrus sweetness and smooth hops. Flavor of sweet citrus beautifully balanced by smooth hop bitterness. Honey finish. Full body. So well balanced with amazing development. Fantastic.

12 oz bottle from Capone’s. Pours deep ruby coppery with 1-finger frothy clingy off-khaki head. Nose is heavy mango, tropical fruit, papaya, intense resiny hops, big caramel malt. Tastes dense on the palate, super hoppy, with tons of caramel malt to match the hops, a bit of heat, and a medley of tropical fruit throughout. I got mango, black pepper, papaya, star fruit, grapefruit, and a long finish. Delicious. SOmeone shoudl do a study to determine which hops lend to the various peppery, feety, and fruity flavors found in beer and try to quantify those variables, as such.

This is a very special ale from a small brewery in northern Idaho. It has all the hallmarks of a great IIPA. I would always put it in my top 5.

12 oz bottle. Pours a beautiful translucent reddish copper with a medium sized beige head. Aroma of grapefruit, fruity malts, honey and citrus overtones. Taste of fruity malts, fresh grapefruit, honey and plenty of hops. Fresh and outstanding.
