To make Surly Wet we took 1,400 lbs of hops picked freshly in oregon and shipped to Minnesota immediately. We brewed this beer three days later. This is a hop forward beer, dry with subdued malt flavors.

Thanks to my bro, Corey, for picking this up for me. I had higher hopes for this. I imagined a fresh Hopslam-like beer. It seemed like a typical run-of-the-mill IPA.

Can... Poured a clear golden with a white head. Super balanced, good malt sweetness with citrus and lemon. Pine notes, resinous and grassy hops, citrus. Super fresh tasting with the hops. They pulled it off as it was quite a pleasure to drink.

Thanks a ton Dresden!!! Pour golden copper white head great lace. Aroma pine, citrus, super resiny hops, caramel, sweet malt. Taste terrific balance of cereal grain, caramel malt and terrific hopping, citrus and resiny hops dominate but allow for subtle background flavors that compliment nicely. MF medium chewy body with a good carb and lingering feel. Overall very quaffable and something I wish was readily available very well done.

Sampled from a can at the Saint Louis Ratebeer Gathering into tulip glass. Thanks, Dan! Overall true-to-style aromas and flavors of an strong American IPA but with the added thrill of fresh, green hops. Highly aromatic: vegetal, herbal and fruity. 100% Citra hops, so itís akin to the Mikeller Single Hop series in that you can use it to train your palette to a specific hop profile. Highly carbonated, dry finish. Further proof that great beer can come in a can.

pushkinwow (2568) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 4, 2011
Can. Orange/copper with an off white head. So definitely different then a regular IPA - hops but more earthy, some caramel, mild citrus. and very smooth - the hops sorta sneak up on you. Low carbonation, medium body, slightly biting but not overwhelming, orange and a bit of candied sugar at the end, not as dry I would normally expect but a very full flavour. Worth trying.

Sampled at the St. Louis RB gathering. It poured a copper-orange color with a white head. The aroma was of grapefruit and spruce. The flavor was grapefruit and citrus. A very enjoyable IPA.

Can, thanks to Finol. Pours orange with a creamy white head. Lychee, gooseberries and grass notes in the aroma. Very fresh and green. The taste has also got lychee and gooseberries notes and is well balanced with some grapefruit-like bitterness. Well balanced. Thirst quenching. Stable.

Can, gift from Omar of Surly. Pours clear amber with a slightly yellowish head. Very fresh grassy, citrusy aroma. Great balance for a single hop, hoppy taste of citrus and grape seeds.
