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.

coharahawk (170) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 27, 2011
22 oz bomber. Pours deep copper in color with minimal head. Aroma smells like old hops. I think my bottle is old, although I dont see a date on the bottle. In my opinion, its too sweet for a DIPA (almost cloying). However, it could be related to the lack of hops if its old. Anyway, I wasnt much of a fan. If I get the chance to try a fresh bottle, maybe my opinion would change.

TURDFERGUSON (4055) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 26, 2011
Shared by emacgee. Pours deep amber with little to no head. Nose is quite sweet with honey and rye being the dominating aromas. Flavor of banana, rye, honey. Bitter finish. Would have never known this was supposed to a double ipa or ipa of any kind.

strongpieman (1651) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - SEP 25, 2011
Bottle. Deep copper color, tan head, cloudy. Hop and malt aroma, very different. Heavy beer (Imperial) but alcohol doesnt come through. The malt distinguishes this from other Imp IPAs as it cuts the bitterness (or balances). Good beer.

emacgee (4659) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - SEP 25, 2011
Color is much too dark, reddish amber with dark sandstone tan head. Lots of caramel malt in the nose, way too much. Very resinous and oily with some citrus zest and pine. Heavy mouthfeel and lasting bitterness. Some citrusy notes, burnt sugar.

chronictonic (472) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2011
bottle from Hawthornes - cloudy orange pour with very little head that quickly dissipates. Citrus resin sappy aromas, with hints of some oxidized hops. Mouthfeel is smooth and round finishing sharp and twangy. Hops are towards the sweeter side up front - sticky and sweet. Flavor finishes bitter, but that wet paper oxidation of hops that have started to go south is prevalent, though certainly not to the point where the beer is unenjoyable.

thirdeye11 (6142) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 14, 2011
(12oz bottle thanks to bu11zeye) rich amber with fine bubbled tan head. Nose of mango, pretty fresh, mildly dank. Taste of pine, pineapple, rich flavor, caramel, pretty hoppy but good residual sugars to back it up.

Date: September 5, 2011 Mode: Bottle Source: Ridgeview Liquors, Green Bay, WI Appearance: Light brown, slight amount of head. Aroma: Hoppy and caramel. Flavor: Consistent with aroma with an alcohol finish. Other: Excellent double, very drinkable for someone that is not a huge fan of this style.

BVery (10050) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2011
Bottle from Ridgeview Liquors in Green Bay, WI. Hazy brown/orange pour with a soapy off-white head. Huge aroma of citrus hops and caramel malt. Full creamy mouthfeel. Assertive citrus hop flavor with earthy, grassy, and caramel malt elements. Finishes dry (probably because of the high ABV). Tremendous DIPA.

unclemike (3052) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - SEP 3, 2011
Medium sized offwhite head with good retention and nice sticky lacing. Lightly hazy, amber/orange color. Nose of citrus, light melon notes, a hint resiny, light earthyness. Body is medium and nicely oily on the palate, nice carbonation, soft and smooth. Grapefruit flavors up front, nice fruity notes and faint malts, lightly sweet. Some vinous notes as well. Lightly sweet finish that could definately use some more bittering hops

Jabswitch (278) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 2, 2011
Great Beer. Malty,slightly medicinal aroma. Nice deep amber and cloudy in appearance. Malty toastty sweetness on the first sip. Nice bitter bite for a finish. Hard to hide 10% abv - but this beer does it well. I found that the malts hid the hops which normally would bother me. But this beer has a very pleasant flavor. Its pricy, but well worth it.
