Welcome to Cosmo's Beer Blog!

We’re a small group of friends and family scattered across the country who’ve all developed a thirst for craft and import beer. We decided that a blog would be a great venue for us to share our hobby. Here we will review beer, compare notes and challenge each other with "Beer Missions".

So welcome to our little world of discovering great tasting beer!

Surly Wet

Wet by Surly
Style / abv: American IPA / 7.5%
Source / Temp: 1 Pint Can / 55 deg
Glass: Half Pint Glass

Appearance: Clear reddish-gold ale with a thick white head.

Aroma: This brew has an awesome citrus aroma with notes of orange and grapefruit. I also notice a hint of lemon-grass.

Taste: The taste is so full of crisp citrus fruits that it literally reminds me of biting into a juicy orange. The middle is sort of a sweet pine and is followed by a big hop finish.

Drinkability: The body is surprisingly watery with medium carbonation. This is easily one of the most drinkable 7+ percentage beers I've ever had.

This beer tastes and smells so good that I don't want to put down my glass. I have had the pleasure of trying some of the finest IPA's that America has to offer and Wet is easily one of the finest IPA's I have tried. The only real problem with this beer is that it is not readily accessible in Indiana. Fortunately I have found a couple of great traders in Minnesota that are willing to help me acquire  future batches.

I give Wet 9.5 out of 10.

Eis Igian,
