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.

Poured from a 16 oz can into a tulip. Acquired as an extra in a trade from Surge1311. Thanks bud!

A- Pours a clear honey colored body with a medium 2" head with high retention and medium lacing.

S- Earthy and floral with citrus and grapefruit notes.

T- Big fresh pine notes. Fresh juicy citrus hop character. Finishes with a sweet and spicy bitterness that demands another sip.

M- Low carbonation, medium body.

Overall an excellent brew. Sweeter and more subtle than others, almost like it's less developed, but it works.
