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.

RABinCO (1508) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAR 18, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2013 Re-rate. Pours copper with a persistent pillow of white head and heavy laving. Grassy, hoppy aroma. Taste is a great balance of malt and bitterness. A bit of pineapple and lemongrass with a slight punch of rye spice. Such a solid DIPA.

Pershing (529) - Garland, Texas, USA - MAR 15, 2012
Deep amber with a thin beige head. Pronounced hop aroma of grapefruit. Good balance of the hop and malt without over doing it. Chewey filling and sticky finish.

dyetube (1374) - Hurst, Texas, USA - MAR 14, 2012
Bottle from kegs and barrels. Pours a deep copper with a thin white head. The aromas are grapefruit, pine, grass. The mouthfeel is dry bitter and has a medium body and good carbonation. You definitely get the alcohol kick in this beer. Cheers!

brigg (634) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 13, 2012
(12oz bottle) Pours a rich red-copper wit a small beige head. Wonderful aroma is full of sweet fruit and floral notes; berries; pine and light grapefruit; lightly spiced; caramel. Medium to full bodied, somewhat chewy with acidity. Flavor is hoppier and less sweet than the aroma. Lots of pine, grapefruit; some lemongrass; slightly nutty; caramel but sweetness is not that strong. Long, dry finish, and some warming alcohol lingers. The aroma and flavor were similar but leaned in very different directions, which actually made it quite interesting for me, even if the flavor wasnt as tasty as the aroma.

timfoolery (1126) - California, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Bottle from Total Wine. This one has a Simcoe (fresh) hop aroma, but it is a harmonious mix of overall hop. The flavor and palate have a nice base of honey and solid malt, making this brew a poor man's Hopslam. Very good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fr5ed (62) - Florida, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Pours a clear, dark amber / light brown into a large tulip. One finger spongy, whitish head. Aromas of woodsy malt along with gentle hop essences (mild citrus / fruit / pine). Full mouthfeel, malt sweetness (dont detect much sweetness or flavor from the clover honey), balanced flavor of the malt and hops. The alcohol is not hidden, but not intrusive either. Not one of my favorite Imperial IPAs so far, but would get it again.

Braudog (6438) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Draft at Taphouse at brunch with thebeergod. Quite dark rusty orange. The head is thin but sticky. Mike called out the simcoe which definitely characterizes this -- viscuous and moderately oily, with earthy, muted citrus. (#4521, 3/11/2012)
