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.

slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - MAY 18, 2011
bottled. Lightly cooper ale w/ white head. Sweet nose that lingers hops. Taste is intensely bitter but overly "balanced" by malts and the sweet mead like finish (the honey). Nice & fun.

alexanderj (3596) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Bottle; poured a rich looking auburn-amber color, small to medium head. Nice coloring. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, pine, earth, caramel, fruit and alcohol. Robus flavor. Pine, citrus, and grapefruit; caramel, fruit and alcohol as well. Flavor is quite strong up front. Alcohol and hops/malt are fairly balanced. A very nice beer for the pricetag.

craftbeerdesign (2254) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 13, 2011
12 oz bottle. pours a deep orange with a 1 finger off white head. lots of sweet malt in the nose with some sticky resinous citrus hop notes. rye, bread and caramel come forward as well. medium to thick body - really chewy. loaded with hops. the Simcoe comes forward a bit followed by the deep rye and sweet malt tones. very well balanced IIPA, if not a bit more towards the malts. pretty smooth throughout with peaks of citrus. smooth finish with the bitterness really coming forward letting the malts take a back seat. kind of a barley wine / IIPA hybrid.... it could fall on either side.

Bottle hooked up by phaleslu. Pours a dark. Amber with a frothy beige head. Notes of sweet tangerine and pine floral hops. Touch of booze. Toast. Warming. Drinkable. Booze has a strong presence, but is tasty. Nice beer. Hoppy light barleywine.

HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2011
22 oz. bomber. Pours a deep red color with a light tan head. Aroma of grapefruit, orange peel, tropical fruit, light caramel. One of the fruitiest smelling DIPAs Ive had in a while. Flavor of grapefruit, light grape skins as well. Citrus, and honey. Mild sweetness easily defeated by the significantly stronger bitterness. Medium mouthfeel. Nice carbonation. Finishes sweet and bitter. Pretty great DIPA. I enjoyed this one.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - MAY 4, 2011
12oz bottle. Copper color. Aroma of sticky malts and resinous hops. Flavor is sweet malt, very heavy bodied. Caramels, a bit of cereal spiciness, a touch of earthy mustiness. Loads of hops. Finishes with strong West Coast hop flavors. Pine and citrus. A good find.

omhper (24380) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - 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.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 2, 2011
Bottle: Pours a clear deep bronze orange with a well-lacing clingy froth of off-white head. Has a lightly oxidized sweet caramel nose with lots of resiny grapefruity hops. Starts with a rich chewy sweetness with some sugary notes and light fruitiness giving way to a healthy dose of citrusy bittering and flavor hops before a drier bittersweet grapefruity finish. Big in malt and hops, this could almost be a triple IPA.
