Wet Hopped IPAs Now Available
Wet hop IPAs are here! I tried the first wet hop IPA of the season on Saturday when I had Get Wet at Pizza Port Ocean Beach. (At least it was the first wet hop IPA I had seen.) Wet hop IPAs are made with fresh hops and have an intense, juicy bitterness, more so than most IPAs, as they are released just a few weeks after harvest. More wet hopped IPAs should be arriving on taps in the coming days and weeks. A few of these beers make it into bottles, Port Brewing's High Tide being one, so you can check bottle shops, too. The freshness of these beers declines fast, so it's best to drink wet hop IPAs as soon as possible to get the full experience of the fresh hops.
