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.

Kysela Pere Et Fils Sneaky Pete Imperial IPA is a DIPA with a dissapointing lack of hoppiness. Mine was bottled on Feb 26th so maybe that explains it.

A: Red colour and a big 1 cm head that lasts really well. 4.5

S: Malty smell with a disappointing lack of hops. 3

T: Malty with some sweetness and subtle citrus hops. It's remarkably smooth given the ABV. I wish this had more hops though. 3.5

M: Pretty flat. 3

O: 3
