Canned 10/11/10. Consumed 10/19/10. I like those numbers. Big shout out to Einweizenbitte for making this possible! Thanks again Todd.

Poured into a New Belgium globe.

Appearance: Cracking the can unleashed a bouquet of wonderfully hoppy aromas. The pour was fantastic. Dumping Wet right down center of my goblet produced a gorgeous cascade of bubbles and at least two fingers worth of dense, eggshell-colored froth. A modest column of carbonation did its best to hold up the massive pile, but eventually it collapsed, dragging a thick web of lacing in its wake. The body looks like polished copper; bright and crystal clear. Head retained as a creamy cap for the entire session. Excellent!

Smell: Ocean-sprayed pine trees, tangerines, herbs, grapefruit, earth, and lemon zest. I can't help but think of fresh Sculpin right now - I'd love to try it next to fresh Wet. Pungent, complex, and delightfully hoppy.

Taste: Mango, grapefruit, pine, earth, and hop resin. Each sip starts off with several seconds worth of sweet, tangy, complexity; followed by a delicately adjusted bitter finish, dominated by earth and pine. This section was really hard to put into words. India Pale Ale bliss.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and resinous with soft, rolling carbonation. Finishes a bit sticky and dry, with the perfect amount of bitterness. Aftertaste is earthy, bitter, and long-lasting.

Drinkability: Have I achieved nirvana? My mind is at ease. I crave nothing; care for nothing. Oh shit, the can's empty. Dammit. I could really go for some more Wet. Thank Buddha, I've got two more cans of nirvana replenishment in the fridge. Ohhhmmmm...
