Bottled 8/11/15 so maybe a little to old. Looks good with orange hue. Very little carbonation and no lacing. Smell is a little odd. Smell of dank pine, apple, rotten banana with a sweet boozy bready smell. Weird. Taste is surprisingly sweet, the sweet over powers the bitterness for me, its very syrupy thick in the feel and combined with the odd smells and flavors kills if for me. Overall i didn't enjoy this one. Sorry LDB

Sneaky Pete Imperial IPA is an American Double/Imperial brew. The color of the beer is a sort of deep auburn. The froth is of a light amount on a light medium thick scale. The body is in between medium and thick on a similar scale. The smell is of a very fresh nature and is quite unique.

Sneaky Pete is a great American Double/Imperial in my opinion. It is a sort of unique and good balance of flavor and lightness. The lightness of this beer sort of exists in a bubble of medium and hoppy flavor. The hoppyness is sort of balanced out by this lightness, and it provides for a nice hearty and not too spiced but very satisfyingly hopped flavor.

This beer is one of those great savoring beers, there is a sort of pocket of medium flavor if one will refreshingly packed in between the hoppy for and after taste, and hence it almost allows one to savor the hoppyness in an even more satisfying way.

Sneaky Pete is a really great beer to satisfy one's hop hankering, and in general.

Not bad, but for an imperial ipa it's a little weak on flavor and hop aroma

On cask at Churchkey beer bar, D.C. It.looks great, smell is super west coast dipa piney, mouthfeel is smooth almost oily. Taste is a good balance between hops and malt. I've liked what I've had by Laughing Dog in the past and this is no exception. Would buy this again.

Not the greatest imperial. Little on the creamy side. Not very complex.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- A thick smelling blend of strong hops and a touch of malt, very good.
Appearance- Pours a golden brown with a slight amount of haze. Has a medium off-white head.
Taste- A big hop and yeast flavor that hides the high ABV. Really enjoyable.
Palate- A heavy bodied beer with moderate carbonation, has a very creamy texture.
Overall- A very good American DIPA, It is hard to find in Georgia but I would buy it again.
