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.

16 oz can courtesy of my brother in law. The pour is golden orange, initially turbid, though settles to mostly clear. Smallish white head leaves behind lovely lacing. The aroma is sweet tropical fruit, bright fresh resin, sweet caramel malt in the back. The taste is the nose, with the sweet pineapple fruit, resin and additionally sweet caramel malt flavors nicely balanced and integrated. This is very much a fresh hop beer, all flavors are grainy, chewy and very fresh tasting. The palate is medium bodied, active carbonation and the sweet, dry bitter finish. Very much a Surly fresh hop beer.

The aroma is where many of these wet hop beers shine, and this is no exception. Wonderful vibrant aroma of citrus hops. This is a bit under the vintages with the citra hops, which were incredible. I still like this quite a bit.

Can thanks to Bursprak & LukasMH. Pours a clear golden with a small, white head. Aroma has pine, grass, lots of bitter hops, sweet cantaloupe melon. Taste is honey sweet, again some melon notes, grassy bitter, lots of hops. Oily hoppy and an average carbonation.

PhillyCraft (5595) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2015
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.
