look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
date of tasting: 3/15/2013
place of tasting: Barley Vine
beer: Sneaky Pete
style: Imperial IPA
brewery: Laughing Dog Brewery
temperature of beer: 55
Appearance: light caramel, think hennessy or urine at a fair
Smell: cream, peaches, peaches and cream, caramel, mango
Taste: like someone blended peaches and cream together with a whole lotta hops, no that’s not a bad thing. A little blueberry comes out as it warms up
Mouthfeel: creamy, damn i cant get off this peaches and cream thing
Overall Impression: i’m never crazy about sweetness in much of anything except dessert. It’s not my favorite in that aspect. It would be unfair to give it a poor review on that basis because it really is a good beer. Absolutely well made and would be great for someone looking for a hoppy beer that had perfect balance of malty sweetness.
Peaches and cream
I need it cause you know that I'm a fiend
Gettin' freaky in my Bentley limousine
It's even better when it's with ice cream
Know what I mean
Food Pairing: i want this with chocolate cake. Or a grilled cheese with havarti and sourdough topped with coarse sea salt
Serving type: on-tap

P: 12oz bottle into a perfect pint glass.
A: A cloudy amber color with a two finger creamy tan head. The lacing is awesome, forming rings after each sip all the way down the glass.
S: Lots of caramel malt along with grapefruit and pine hops. It's not super complex but inviting.
T: Wow, the alcohol in this beer isn't shy. You taste it on your tongue as well as in your throat, it's not super intense but I like the alcohol flavors to be more subdued in my beer. Alcohol up front, followed by the caramel malt and citrus rind like hop flavors. A decent balance of all three but the best Imperial beers can hide the alcohol with even higher ABV's than Sneaky Pete.
M: Somewhat heavy, coats your mouth, creamy in texture. Nice.
O: A solid Imperial IPA but not in the top tier of the style. They didn't do a good enough job of hiding the alcohol to make it one of the best. Otherwise it's fairly well balanced and has the malt and hop flavors you'd expect.
