Masthead Brewing Co. – Wet Work
It’s that time of year again. The time of year hop heads dream about; hop harvest season. Brewers scramble to get their freshly picked hops into the boil as fast as humanly possible. Masthead recently released their fresh hop double IPA, Wet Work at one of their famous Saturday canning releases. I wasn’t able to attend personally, but a friend saved the day and brought me a 4pk. Wet Work is a perfect marriage of Simcoe and Amarillo hops flown from the West Coast and tossed into the boil, giving this double IPA intense floral aromas, and bursting with a crisp, dank bitterness on the finish, underlined by notes of citrus and pine throughout. Wet Work is a complex and full flavored double IPA that will satisfy every hop head’s palate. Wet Work is 8% ABV and 60IBUs.
