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.

Can @ Brad’s house. Pours a clear, dark orange appearance with a cream colored head. Mild cat piss, onion, somewhat spicy hoppy, herbal aroma. Kind of tangy, orange/apple fruity, somewhat spicy, light furniture polish flavor. Ok but I was a bit disappointed.

16oz can thanks to jmikolich. Canned on 10/09/12 it looks like. Pours clear light golden with a rocky, dense, bright white head. Good retention and huge lacing. Nose is...holy cow...so much fresh pineapple and peach. Heavy on white grape juice as it warms. Taste is very soft up front, moving to thick oil and bitter pineapple pith. Some mild white crystalline sugar. Mouthfeel is very rich, oily, no harshness. Finishes quite bitter with nut skin and mild macadamia nut and walnut. Fresh and clean, very drinkable. Almost silky palate. Actually, in my glass if you look carefully there are actually oil beads floating on top of the small, settled layer of bubbles. Literal beads of hop oils. My lord.

16oz can, canned on 10/1/2012, consumed 10/21/2012, nose is awesome, love the aroma of simcoe taste is more of the same, a pleasant not too bitter well carbed beer, really a good example of a wet ipa.

16oz. can split with a few friends, thanks Kyle! Pours golden with a huge white pillow of a head. Dank pine, grapfruit, other citrus, light caramel malts, and some toast to the nose. The flavor is packed with hops, but not mouth drying. More pine and citrus hops and a solid malt body make this a joy. You get the full flavor and aroma of the hops but not the huge bite that you’re used to, and I love it.....stellar.

Medium yellow, with thin white head that leaves lacing down the glass to the finish. Aroma is intense resin, grapefruit hop with light honey aroma. Flavor is especially bitter, and hangs in the mouth for quite a while. This one is almost too bitter to be enjoyable. I will stick to furious.

500mL can, sent from khoffman43 (thanks Kyle), pours a clear copper / gold with a small white head. Aroma of freshly cut grass, zesty hops and some citrus notes. Flavour of wet citrusy, grassy hops, some zest, and just enough crisp crackery malt to back. Highly drinkable, dominated by the citrus and zest - very nicely hoppy and dry, with medium astringency on the finish. Really excellent thirst-quenching IPA.

Johnsense (1038) - - OCT 19, 2012
Golden pour with a massive pillowy white head. Gapefruit and ripe citrus fruit aroma and loads of hop resin. citrus fruit up front - definitely simcoe hops this time around. Citrus rinds, pine resin, earthy. Medium body. A very worthy wet-hopped beer. not a trace of the 7.5% alcohol.

Nice IPA by Surly. Loaded with tons of dank grapefruit. Reminds me a bit of a less powerful Heady Topper with a bit less citrus. Pretty tasty stuff.

Bombtastic brew! Head was dense like whip cream on top of a bright golden yellow body. Aroma grassy, tangerines. Very nice honey presence and transitions to hop finale. tropical fruit, mint,grapefruit and spicy sensation Of bitterness. Mouth feel smooth and lively medium carbonation. Thanks DMCproductions for this killer venture thru simcoe row!

Bright golden tangerine pour with a 1/2 inch ivory foam. Fragrant juicy orange peel, grapefruit, evergreen, and lemon grass. Flavor just a hint less assertive but shows the same depth. Just picked tangelo, hay, pine, and honey. Nicely carbonated...yum!
