16oz can purchased at the ale jail.. pours a mostly transparent, peachy orange hue, while being topped with a creamy solid white head that slowly reduces down to a frothy film... Aroma of aromatic melon and notes of honeydew. Juicy and assertive hop bouquet that becomes a bit more floral-like as time surpasses. Somewhat dank and green to boot... Flavors offer a semi-sweet rendition of the aroma with an added fair level of bitterness. Melon fruitiness throughout with hints of tropical fruit. That gentle aforementioned bitterness becomes a but more intense as more is consumed. Medium bodied with adequate carbonation. Tasty and drinkable albeit probably a little dangerous at that. Very good.

Stine (1663) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Grapefruit, cannabis, cotton candy, and an oily, resiny wash of bitterness in the nose; so fresh, and ebullient, while not outrageously huge or abrasive. It’s a green, oily bittersweetness that’s tantalizing.

Tropical hop flavors, balanced simply by honey sweetness. The sweet sensuality of the fresh hop is amazing. Smooth, rainforesty, misty, bong-watery.

Super oily, mouthcoating bitterness follows that blast of fresh leafy-sweet; medium body, just enough balancing malt to bring it together but not to distract. Long finish with tropical sweetness and leafy oils lasting and lasting and lasting.

16 ounce can thanks to khoffman43. Big hoppy simcoe aroma. Totally balanced. Super pine and honey sweet mixed together. Big taste overall. Great stuff.

16oz can from Atom, thanks Adam! Canned on 9/20/2012. Pours a cloudy, golden-orange colored body with a finger-width, creamy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is fresh, resiny, prickly pines with a juicy citrus and tropical fruitiness. A lightly sweetened, grainy pale malt backing with a touch of caramel. Flavor is similar. Fresh, catty, resiny pines up front with lots of grapefruits, tangerines, pineapples, and a light tropical fruitiness. A lightly sweetened, grainy pale malt backing with just a hint of caramel again. Finishes dry, piney, and herbal with a medium-high bitterness as well as lots of juicy fruits. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium-light body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a really nice, fresh IPA. Dry and bitter with lots of fruity hops. Clean, easy drinking, and very enjoyable. Great beer.

Fresh can via trade, thanks Kevin! Really a nice and mild IPA which seems to be characteristic of wet hop brews. This is definitely the best wet hop beer I have tried. I do like that it is not overpowering with bitterness.

Clear orange, decent foam although it disappeared fairly quickly, leaving the glass a little sudsy. I love these wet hopped IPAs - the freshness really shines through. Citrus aroma, tangerine-like, with a hint of pine, malt is hidden. Body is very dry and puts the spotlight on bitterness and other hop flavors. Which is good because the flavor is surprisingly light, quite refreshing actually, but a little too subtle compared to my favorites.

bytemesis (4740) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Can - thanks Kyle!!! Pours clear orangish amber with a large creamy off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves great lacing. Powerful hoppy aroma with grapefruit, passionfruit, very light caramel. Flavor is much the same with light sweetness and a light bitterness from start to finish. Medium bodied, oily textured in the mouth. This is a good beer.

Bacterial (2281) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Pour from a can. Really nice citrus nose with a little grassiness, white head. Lots of citrus grapefruit, just thick enough to bring the party all around your mouth and a really nice, subdued bitterness in the finish. Nice work guys.

nsquishee (630) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - OCT 2, 2012
Smells like mangoes and oranges complimented by a dank hop aroma. Very clear honey colored pour with a lacy white head. Nice sweet taste with a smooth, velvety feel followed by a lightly bitter finish. Nice version of Wet. Much better than 2011, but not quite as good as ’09/’10.
