Most likely only one of the pipes is leaking but weaping enough to cover the top and indented places near both inlet and outlet. This leak has most likely penetrated all the insulation and is a problem throughout the tank wrap insulation...If you are able to blow air continuously long enough to determine which connection is leaking then fix it. It will likely to take quite a while to dry out all the insulation if the water has migrated down into the tank wrap... If you determine that the insulation is waterlogged, you may be able to drill several small holes in the external cover.

it might be hard water in the heater. the hard water flakes and when your water heater turns on it creates some movement in those hard water flakes and makes a popping and hissing noise then when it comes to temperature it should stop. the temperature and pressure relief valve shouldn't make this noise. but if you stick your finger in the pipe and it is wet then you might have problems some where else. let me know if it is

1) Shut the breaker off to it at the panel. 2) Hook a hose up to it (the bottom has a drain). 3) Close the valve to the water heater (on the cold water supply). 4) Open drain on the bottom of water heater. 5) Open the relief valve to allow air into the tank (it won't drain otherwise - think if you put your finger on one end of a straw - the liquid stays in until you let go). Why are you draining it by the way?

There is an address near the end of this link to request manuals of reliance water heaters not listed. http://www.reliancewaterheaters.com/lit/om.html
it is quite possible that your heater works on the same principle as one of the other models and just differs in capacity or power rating.

I wrote a page for changing water heater thermostat.
The photos take you through step-by-step
I recommend replacing both upper and lower thermostats so it eliminates thermostats as possible cause if water heater keeps overheating.
The Reliance 606 manual shows your water heater uses generic upper and lower thermostats from hardware store.
Likely the thermostat will solve the problem:

it is important to turn off
the gas supply to the water heater at the manual gas shut-off
valve. This valve is typically located beside the water heater.
Note the position of the shut-off valve in the open/on position
then proceed to turn it off.
2. On the lower front of the water heater locate the combination
gas control valve/thermostat. Depress and hold
the lock tab located under the gas control knob on the right.
Rotate the gas control knob on the combination gas control
valve/thermostat clockwise until "OFF" aligns with the mark on
the front of the gas valve. Once the gas supply has been shutoff,
remove outer door. 3. Using a 1/4" nut driver or socket loosen the two screws securing
the manifold door assembly until they are free. Do not
totally remove the screws and plastic retainer washers from
the manifold door. The screws and retainer washers will be
needed to reattach the manifold door. 4. In this step, the thermocouple, manifold tube, pilot tube and
igniter wire will be disconnected from the combination gas
control valve/thermostat. Using a 7/16" wrench
disconnect the thermocouple (left-hand thread) and pilot tube
(right-hand thread). Using a 3/4" wrench disconnect the manifold
tube (right-hand thread). Carefully pull the igniter wire from
the igniter button.
5. Grasp the manifold tube and push down slightly to free the
manifold tube, pilot tube, and thermocouple from the combination
gas control valve/thermostat. when installation is complete and gas is back on, You should be able to relight the pilot and the functionality of your gas hot water heater should be restored.
