COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A perfect blend of Cascade, Centennial, and Northern Brewer hops gives this classic India Pale Ale the kind of robust flavor that Il Vicino restaurants are known for. This lush hop character is layered with rich malt undertones to create a tasty and satisfying ale. Tawny-hued and aromatic, Wet Mountain IPA is a brew you won't soon forget. NOTE: Bottled version is contract brewed by Bristol Brewing Company.

smaynard6000 (635) - Apopka, Florida, USA - MAY 18, 2012
On tap at brewery canteen. Clear amber collor with a small creamy white head. Excellent lacing throughout the pint. Aroma is simply pure hops and citrusy. Medium bodied with sticky mouthfeel, soft carbonation and intense bitter finish. Flavor is just pure hops, long in duration and just heavily bitter and citrus on the tongue. Good.

Miksu (4948) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JAN 15, 2012
Cask at GBBF 2011. Copper color. Pungent juicy hop aroma with grapefruit and pine. Dryish bitter flavor with lots of lemony, piney and grapefruity hops. There are some soapy notes too which I’n not so fond of.

Oakes (12612) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 29, 2011
Draught, Santa Fe location. Amber with a slight haze and thin head. Big, assertive hop aroma - woody with grapefruity accents. Pithy bitterness with nice and very subtle brown sugar sweetness. Rich, earthy and again slightly grapefruity in character. Very good, balanced, easy-drinking IPA.

Draft at brewpub. Nice floral notes on the nose. Pours orange with a finger of white foam. Beautiful hop flavor on the tongue without a lot of bitterness. It’s a very drinkable beer.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 10, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2011 @ ABQ brewfest. Hazed out dull copper. Fuzzy fir aromas and cannabis. Healthy hops. As soon as the fruity hops cut through to the palate, the flavors unfortunately fizzle. Very nice brew but not yet special...Draft @ the brewery canteen is dark copper 4 the aroma is really bright and foresty with cannabis and huge juicy malts, 8 juicy palate with lingering hop oils 3 medium body is on the thin side which is nice bc not so many malt sugars but has great flavors match the aromas except the lingering finish is super grassy good and dry. Solid IPA; rating updated
