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. tallboy can poured into a becker pint glass. Canned on 9/25/12 and enjoyed 10/11/12. Pours a golden amber with some orangish hues topped with a fluffy and sticky two and a half finger white head. Good retention and splotchy, sticky lacing all around the glass. Strong smell of pine sap, grapefruit rind and citrus on the nose. Opens with a touch of sweet citrus joined suddenly by bitter rind, strong pine notes, a hint of honey like sweetness as the malt joins in midpalate and finish dry and extremely bitter with a blast of pine and grapefruit rind. Slick, oily, and resinous, medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. The wet hops are certainly the star of the show in this brew and there isn’t much between your tongue and their oily, sticky bitterness. An excellent wet hop West Coast-style IPA.

Can from Four Firkins on the release date of the 2012 Surly Wet. Has amazing notes of resin and some citrus, get a little bit of pineapple. Nice light golden amber in color with a nice frothy head that fades to a nice lacing on top. Taste is a very nice balance between some sweeter notes and pine, it finishes with a very nice bitter.

A fresh smelling beer with an aroma of grass and resin. Pours an appealing clear gold with a fluffy white head. Has a light, refreshing, bitter hoppy taste. It doesn’t linger on the palate but leaves a pleasant lightly sour aftertaste. A fun, fresh, easy drinking lightly hopped beer.

This stuff is great to just sniff. I’d buy cologne that smelled like this. Best smelling beer out there. Taste is great too. $16/4-pack.

16 ounce can thanks to Dallas. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. A big fruity nose with pine and dank citrus. The flavor is very rich green fresh hops dominated by dank weed and fruit. Not very bitter. Quite good. Simcoe is always nice. Very carbonated.

Gription79 (2839) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Poured from a pint sized can, thanks to CLevar. The aroma is very fruity, citrus, pine, green/grassy. The flavor is similar, the citrusy fruit is bright. Slight hop funk. Very nice and enjoyable.

oakbluff (437) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 22, 2012
Canned sample- glowing tangerine, cloudy with wispy white head. Nose-bright green hops, oranges, peach. Taste- almost creamy tropical fruit juice that drops into a resinous dry finish. The garlicy flavour noticable in other simcoe hopped brews not present at all for me. Excellent body and carbonation make this dangerously drinkable.

16 oz. can thatnks to CLevar. Canned 09/20/12. Pours a hazy golden color. Aroma has some pine, citrus and still really nice for being almost 2 months old. The taste is a little grassy, fruity, and crackers. The bitterness is not too high which I think is good. A very good beer.
