Where: Petaluma, Calif.
Type: American Pale Ale
Availability: October 2013 in extremely limited release
Each year California's Lagunitas steps away from the dry hops and pulls in some fresh Simcoe that they wet hop into small release batches to create Wet Dog New Dogtown Pale Ale. The recipe is based on their earlier Dogtown Pale Ale, an American Pale Ale with a significant malt profile to balance out the featured hops aroma. The brewer reports that the Simcoe hops have just been added, so the beer should be ready in the next few weeks.
