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.

2017 was Mosaic hops only
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.

2015 version - exceptional. 100% simcoe.

Extremely dank throughout the entire drinking experience. Fragrant earthy tones with citrus in the background. Quite fragrant beer from the can and even better on tap. Mouth feel is super liquidy - not dry by any means. Poured into a Surly Teku and pours a beautiful yellow-orange and a solid 3 inch head.

Favorite Surly Wet thus far. Cheers!

Poured from can into beer glass. Warm, orange in appearance with a half inch head. Smelled of mandarin oranges and fresh citrus, with the faintest smell of fresh hops. Complex, colorful taste that is extremely crisp and not bitter. Medium citrus and hop flavors.

Definitely one of my favorite beers by Surly.

Picked some up today at Total Wine in Bloomington - they had a bunch and it was flying out the door. Surly pricing $14.99 a four pack :(

Couldn't wait so I had one with lunch - nose is almost white wine like? Sweet but not fresh squeezed
sweet. Finish is smooth with a touch of bitterness. More later when I have another one.

Had on tap at the Bryant Lake Bowl L: Brilliant straw gold with a thin white foam collar. S: Spice, herbs and fruit. T: Well developed hop flavors supported by a rich malty texture balance an assertive hop bitterness. F: Low medium body, high medium carbonation. O: Big hop flavors are well handled.
