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.

Fresh can, pours an ugly color for an ipa....cleared out orange. Small white head and light lacing. Smell is caramel, pine, wet malt, florals and orange. Taste is sweet up front and ashy bitter in the back. Medium to fuller body. Not sure the appeal of this one.

Golden orange, ample white head. Sweet resinous pine, tropical pineapple. Not overly bitter, surprisingly sweet but almost more hoppy sweetness than malty sweetness. Cleaner and less oily than expected, medium body, longer finish. Quite excellent.

Can poured hazy light amber with a small white head and lacing. Aromas of juicy citrus hop, plum, floral, yum. Flavor is slightly sweet citrus goodness. Thank you Matt, may I have another.

Gonna start of with I’ve waited 2+ years for try this beer. Wasn’t made in 2014, 2013 batch was released right before we got Surly in Chicago. Anyway picked this up the day after it hit Chicago for the first time. Canned 9/30/15. So looking at 2.5 weeks old. Well, to get to the point this ranks right near the top of most disappointing beers I’ve tasted. Overly sweet. Almost Amber malt dominates. Has a touch of the sawdust lager yeast I get from a Pilsner. Did they forget to put the hops in?

Grapefruit finish.rind. grass. Pine. OK rip off price. $17 4 pack.Really? Pft. Probably needed to be drank on the first week. too sweet. Overpriced, I do appreciate the dedication to the hop to glass ideal but this did not follow through really. Ok , third can I noticed some mint tropical fruit aroma

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2015 Clear amber. Nose of syrupy candy malt and piney hops with floral citrus and mild tropical fruit. Flavor is juicy pine, pineapple, and citrus with more syrupy caramel malt. Lingering hops and candy syrup. Good overall raw hop flavor. Re-rate: The more I drink, the more I feel the hop flavor on this falls relatively flat. Adjustment rate -1

On tap at Champps Americana in Brookfield. Pale orange pour with little head. Interestingly, lots of streaky lace. Aroma has overlayered hops. Big grapefruit and sweet passionfruit. Dank as anything. Huge simcoe! Taste is of very sweet fruits, with simple syrup, grapefruit, pineapple, some caramel, but it is quite buried. Thick and syrupy. Medium bodied with alcohol. Finishes long and simcoe-y sweet with faint bitterness back. Love the concept of the fresh harvest brews - making it my favorite beer season - and super happy Surly came back to it after a year off. Ultimately, for this one, the simcoe is so overwhelming that it is tough. Fresh = great. This blend, unfortunately, just so-so.14.2

one of the better examples of a fresh hop IPA. nice and crisp with some nice spicy hop notes on the nose and flavor. the hops dominate but some ceral malts give great balance. I know I enjoyed this while out fishing .
