Burnished golden orange pour with great clarity and a creamy half inch of bubbly foam on top. Nice active carbonation. Aromas kick off with juicy, fresh, resinous hops. Lots of citrus and grapefruit all over the place. Mellow roasted malt in the background with some caramel sweetness, but hops rule the show as it was brewed with 100% Citra.

First sip is...HOPS! Bright green citrus with lots of orange, grapefruit and resinous oils. Lightly toasted malts with some caramel sweetness. Flows down with a nice kick of bitterness. Great stuff.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and creamy with great carbonation. An easy drinking brew that brings the fresh dank hops! Glad I happened to be up in MN when this was out so I could grab a 4pack, my only regret is this being my last can...yum!

Tara picked me up a four pack this week in MN. Price tag was 15.99 for the set. Served up in a tulip.

A: Got a dark orange to light amber color coming across, has some burnt brown hues in places. Held to the light, the orange really thrives. Got some chill haze, but otherwise all is clear with a hefty amount of carbonation activity in there. The pour got me about two fingers of tight white head. Pretty good retention and it keeps sheets of lace on the glass all the way down.

S: Sweet, dank, hop goodness. Just so much hops that it is almost a religious experience. Citrus really comes through with tons of orange, grapefruit, and lemon notes. Pine notes round off the nose. That's it, just hops. Not getting any malt notes whatsoever and I can appreciate that. When I think of this beer,I want this nose. And it delivers.

T: Not much unlike the nose. Lots of citrus hops. Grapefruit, orange, and lemon zest, meat, rind, etc. Just bright, bitter and abrasive at times (in a good way). The malts don't bring much flavor, just a little sweetness and balance to keep this thing from getting out of hand. Things round out with pine and some dank, illegal goodness. Very nice.

M: Medium mouthfeel with a bright carbonation level. Its bitter on the palate. ABV isn't a problem, and harshness is coming from hops and hops alone. Aftertaste is all pine, pot and grapefruit.

OA: Jeff was right, she should have brought me more. These four will be gone today and I will be left wondering why. Why I couldn't contain myself? Why I live so far away from Surly? Why I don't smoke out anymore? its going to be a day of self reflection. Thank you, Wet.

Picked up a 4-pack of this stuff from Edina Liquors for $15.99. Pricy but worth it this year. Drank from my Minneapolis Town Hall weizen glass while watching the Desperation Bowl (Dallas vs. Minnesota).

Appearance- Pours a light crystal clear yellowish orange with a decent half finger fluffy off-white head. The head actually disappears fairly quickly and no lacing or head is left what-so-ever.
Smell- Very fresh and super fruity with hints of mango and pineapple right from the pfffttt of the can. Almost a green apple like scent as well and I almost always get a sort of light vegetable thing on the Wet Hopped brews. It’s not bad, it’s just really the only way I can describe it.
Taste- Nice light bitterness upfront along with a somewhat subdued fruitiness. Some hoppy peach notes along with a touch of pineapple and mango. The beer is actually a bit more intensely flavored than most Wet Hopped brews. The bitterness grows and but is quickly cut off by a surprisingly noticeable biscuit malt finish. The malt adds just the lightest touch of caramel in the finish.
Mouthfeel- Light body with a nice tinge of carbonation that is spot on.
Drinkability- I really like Wet this year a lot. Last year’s was a bit boozy and just sort of out of whack. This years is freaking spot on delicious. Everything is right in balance (for a bitter, hoppy IPA anyways) and it’s a wonderfully enjoyable beer.

After erroneously being served Broodoo due to a tap handle mix-up I finally got a tulip of this stuff.

A - One finger of off-white foam with excellent retention that finally dissolves to a thick cap with lots of lace. Nice hazed glowing dark red-brown color.

S - Pine, grass, dankness, fresh hop oils, some light citrus and tropical notes. Well-balanced with caramel and multi-grain malt characters.

T - The taste is more malt-forward with smooth caramel and bready flavors. A good amount of Yakima hops that ooze pine and lemon. Tons of residual bitterness in the finish.

M - Lots of oily resins, medium-bodied, lower carbonation. Pretty much what I like from an IPA.

D - Well-hidden booze, easy drinking. The only thing that gets tiring is the high level of bitterness.

Nice change of pace, but I think I prefer fresh Furious.

This review is not for virgin eyes nor is this beer for virgin hophead wannabes as Surly "Wet" is nothing but a straight up wet spot! Whoops, I mean, wet hop.

Bright burnt orange with a slight scarlet cast to its body. Nice medium sized rocky capping of yellowed firm foam that sits like a pro stripper earning an extra $20 for lengthy lap dancing. Lots of lacing in droppy sheets that could possibly be mistaken for the details of lingerie.

Alurring aroma makes you lick your lips with enticement and excitement as its damp and oily resinous quality perfurmes with freshness that peaks out perfectly from its layers of citrusy zip. Orange oily, lemon rindy, grapefruit skinned, and mango sinned; this stuff begs to be lapped up.

The taste is infatuating with a tongue teasing temptation of pleasingly bold, heavy hops that lay in deep earthy plant herbalness. Moderately resinous with a two part weedyness - as in the ones you pull from the garden and the ones you grow in you basement closet. Quite herbal and cannibus hinted with hugely deep darkness of whole hop goodness. The flavor spreads its wholesomeness wide and encapsulates the tongue as it has all you'd ever want or need from a hop, the whole plant; the vines, leafs, roots, you name it, its in there. Lots of backened citric action in the finish with piney bitterness and ground up pithy toned grapefruit fluff coat the tongue with a tender but firming herbal prick.

Moist and bold medium body with lots of zippy hop tang and oily pizazz on the palate that shoots a wrench load of hops to delightfully coat the tongue and pucker the cheeks. Keeps barely enough tepid balance within its tantric malt backing. Yet the tightness in bite and bitterness creates enough pleasure with an exceptable girth and length as not to be pre mature in its hop ejaculation.

"Wet" is a beer made to have hop sex with your mouth. An orgasmic deep quality of hops so invigoratingly fresh you'll need a post coital cigarette. Or at least a shower.
