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.

Beautiful pour. Crystal clear straw blonde with two fingers of sticky off white head. Nose is woody with a nice and round fruitiness. Touch of citrus rind. Nice flavor, balanced. Touch of resin and citrus with woody hop notes. Round medium body with a wonderful mouthfeel.

16 oz. can shared at Dave’s tasting. Pours a very hazy gold with a white head. Pleasant aroma that is dominated by grapefruit. The flavor is similarly dominated by grapefruit. Strong bitterness at the finish. Very one-dimensional hop-forward beer.

Thanks to whit for this. Pours cloudy golden with a small white ring. Aroma is fruity and grapefruit hops. Taste is a fabulous bouquet of grapefruit and floral hop bitterness. Great grain sweetness for balance.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4668) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 6, 2013
Can shared at the First Kinki Beer Tasting. Considering the hype I was expecting more. It poured a cloudy gold with a grape, slightly funky fruity aroma. The body was a bit watery while the taste was bitter, fruity grape with a clean ascerbic finish. I am surprised at the hop bill, how did I pick up grape???

16oz can shared by jsprime. canned aug 2013, enjoyed nov 1st 2013. pours hazed golden with a white head. not the most expressive nose but still nice. the flavour is balanced, quite hoppy, lean body. not the freshest can but still very enjoyable.

barn0216 (537) - California, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Full disclosure, this can was more than a month old. Color was golden brown, somewhat peculiar foam, rather large bubbles. Aroma was unremarkable, lightly hopped. Flavor tended toward the malt end of the spectrum. The hops were there but didn’t live up to the hop forward character i expect from surly wet. So not a bad beer, but doesn’t meet expectations.

Had not had previous wet beers. Tasty but not one of my favorite wet hopped beers. Overall still a really good beer. Funky and fresh
