This is perhaps the best IPA iíve ever had! Poured with a small to average off white head and a little lace. Color is a clear amber. Aroma is the freshest hops and balanced against malt, caramel, fresh bread. Flavor is like nose and again the freshest hops perfectly matched to the malt, yeast, and carbonic tang. Body and carbonation excell. Finish is like flavor and surprisingly of average length considering the fullness of the flavor.

Easily my favorite IPA. I know itís a fresh hopped/wet hopped beer but this is as dank as some of the better West Coast IPAís like Nelson and Duet etc. The 100% citra batch this past year was pungent and full of tropical fruit aromas while maintaining a nice dank presence. Canít wait for this yearís batch with 100% Simcoe.

Surly brews are strong on flavor and this Wet proves they donít skimp on the elements of beer--great bouquet of grapefruit citrus and floral hops. A rare beer of such substance you want to chew it while you are drinking it down by the gallons.

Pours a clear copper orange with thick frothy tan-tinged head. Aroma is strong notes of grapefruit and spruce. flavor is grapefruit, floral and citrus. Undertones of bread and cereal. Body is light with a lot of carbonation.

This one was canned on 10/4, consumed on 11/14. Admittedly, itís not my first can out of the 4 pack, the other two having been consumed on 10/19. Still, Iím hoping for something great. Aroma: Fruity and citrusy, and fairly sweet. Oranges, grapefruit, lemon zest. Wait. Thereís something more here. Clementine. Wow. Appearance: Orange and bubbly, with some fluffy white head going on all up in here. Fairly clear. Taste: Surprisingly malty. Lots of orange sweetness, with the tangy dryness of grapefruit in the background with that bitter hoppy finish. Lemoniness through the whole thing. Sweet then dry, and nicely refreshing. Palate: Medium body, lower side of medium carb. Sticks to the mouth, feeling a lot like eating grapefruit. Feels surprisingly soft, with just a tinge of alcohol. Overall: One of the better IPAs on the market if you ask me. Itís not quite what last yearís batch was, I think because of the change to all citra hops. Still, itís got a groovy beat that I can dance too. Er. Drink?

Surly really upped their game with this beer. This might be their best hoppy beer, which is saying a lot. The aroma on this beer is to die for. Strong citrus with a puckering bitterness. Oh so good going down. Even better than Furious, which is my stand by IPA. The only negative is the sticker shock at around $18 per 4 pk.

Holy crap. What a delight, canned just days ago, very clear straw color with beads of plenty, soft white cap. Smells fan-freakin-tastic, freshest of fresh, floral, citrus, just plain fresh. Like drinking hops before theyíve been harvested, just so goddamn fresh, very very tasty. Maybe the weakest point of the beer which doesnít really say much, but its just a bit thin for me. Overall this is an absolute must, Iíd say be mindful of the canning date though, if itís more than a couple of weeks old, you sort of lose the whole nostalgia of the beer.

Simply one of the best IPAs I've ever tasted. Had one the same day it was canned in September 2011. Super fresh citrus and dank resinous aroma. All of the best qualities of hop flavor in an extreme quantity - tangerines, pineapple, fresh cannabis, and grapefruit bitterness all surprisingly well balanced with just enough sweet malt backbone to lead into a clean, very pleasant finish that you never want to end. Classic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can from Dennis Brothers. Pours orangey brown with some head. Great circle lacing. Aroma has citrus and pine and resin. Some of that burnt bacon smell. Lots of hops, and lots more hops, in the nose. Taste brings sweetness with some caramelly malt, bitterness with citrus, some bulk and body with a lovely pine flavor. Not too syrupy. Crisp but with some fullness of flavor. Finishes medium long and bitter. This is an excellent brew! Iíll be interested to have it head-to-head with Furious and those oily hops. (In honor of Joie .... I wish your daughter had been as nice and sweet as you!)
