Notes / Commercial Description:
We took a break from brewing our Wet Hopped West Coast Style IPA in 2014 while we moved into our new brewery so for 2015 we came back with a bang. Our 2015 edition features 6,000 lbs of Simcoe hops harvested from the Yakima region of Washington. We went all out in 2015 and brewed 600 barrels, TEN TIMES as much WET as we first brewed when we started wet hopping back in 2009. And, for the first time ever, WET distribution will reach our neighbors in Wisconsin, Iowa and Chicago in both draft and 16oz cans.

2013 was a mix of Cascade and Centennial hops
2012 was Simcoe hops only
2011 was Citra hops only

2,400 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.

Wow, just popped a can of this - the hops hit the nostrils before I even poured it. Pours a beautiful licht copper with a thick golden head. Massive lacing as i drink. The taste is the most floral arrangement of hops I've ever tasted, like drinking a bridal bouquet. It nicely crisp in the mouth, and alcohol is no part of the palate. 6% abv and 90 ibus makes this a hop head's dream. Outstanding job Surly.
