look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
Bottled 6-12-13. Single 12 oz bottle brought to me by my brother in law from Oregon.
Served cold into a goblet, Sneaky Pete is a hazy brown amber with thick off-white head. It has very good retention and leaves some nice lacing.
Aroma is sweet and hoppy but not very fresh. Much more like a barley wine than an imperial IPA.
Flavor is big and bold but balanced. The malt bill is big enough to support the hops with a caramel and toffee sweetness. The hops are still there and supply decent bitterness but it isn't as intense as it likely was back in June when it was bottled.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied and nicely carbonated. The alcohol is there but it has settled in nicely over the past six months.
Overall a very solid barley wine but not what I was expecting given the label of imperial IPA.

Had on draft at Lures on 7/2/14 in a short wide mouth glass
A-Pours cloudy amber with a decent off white frothy head that lingers long and leaves excellent lacing.
S-Aroma is pine, grapefruit, sweet floral and citrus hoppiness.
T-Taste is heavy sweet, with grapefruit, honey, and pine with a light malt.
M-Average carbonation, medium body, slick texture and a long sticky finish with overtones of grapefruit and honey.
O-Overall a decent DIPA a great blend of hops and malt that hide the 10%.
Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
A: deep orange/amber - darker than I would expect from a DIPA; 1 finger head that receded quickly to a thin film; nice lacing;
S: floral and tropical fruit - pineapple and grapefruit;
T: not what I expected from the nose - earthy; not a lot of bitterness, but more than what I would expect from 10% ABV; the alcohol is there, but muted;
M: on the heavy side of medium bodied; moderate carbonation;
O: enjoyable, but a little too boozy for my taste;
Serving type: on-tap
