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.

Sampled from the tap at the Canteen. Pours a clear amber with a creamy tan head that lasts throught the beer and laces. Aroma has lots of grass with a hint of resin and a bread backbone. Flavor has has more of a bitter citrus and grass combination backed by sweet grains.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 5, 2006
Bottle from beerandblues2. Pours cloudy copper. Smells of yogurt and tea. Tastes mildly citrussy and tarte. Not much hop presence to speak of. I noticed the cap was a Bristol cap. Contract brewed?

Ernest (6148) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 22, 2002
Draught. Body is dark amber. Aroma is moderately hoppy (resin, grapefruit), lightly malty (cookie), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, heavily bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Fans of citric pine sap cocktails will like this more than me...it’s good for the style, I suppose, but there’s dozens upon dozens of others just like it out there.

Rastacouere (6122) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 31, 2005
Clear orange. Irregular off-white topping. Not the most aromatic hops in there. Greenish woodstick flavours, somewhat sweaty and earthy. In mouth, it comes out dry and tannic, certainly earthy, apricot like and above all, reminding me of an old pocket of herbal tea, dull and astringent. Light bodied, fair carbonation. A pretty disappointing example of weak character for its reputation.

arminjewell (6067) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark orange-red with thin white head, aroma brought notes of old hops, grapefruit, orange, some caramel, toffee, rich earth in there, slight grass, slight berry as well. Taste is a mix of sweet caramel, toffee, earth, hints of old hops, slight orange and berry notes, hints of earth, finishing fairly sweet, slightly bitter. Wish I could have tried this fresh!

blutt59 (5999) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 28, 2010
Bottle, via trade with jbye4334, golden amber with soapy foam, aroma of malty vanilla animal crackers, flavors of hoppy fruit and caramel with a bitter finish

riversideAK (5582) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 15, 2010
Bottle from jbye4334. Thanks Josh! Nose is floral with some citrus notes. Malt is a little doughy with some caramel as well. Not overly aromatic. Pours murky amber wit ha nice head and good sticky thick lace. Medium floral hoppy flavors, light bitterness, doughy malts, soft caramel sweetness, and floral, peppery, light grapefruit hops in the finish. I could see this kicking a lot of ass on draught at the source, but as a contract brew, it is not bad, but seemingly uninspired.

Braudog (5582) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAY 6, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2007 Deep red with a solid head and bountiful hop aroma. Awesomely balanced creamy hoppiness. The perfect blend of grain flavors and hops. I love Il Vicino beers, two of which are the only ones I’ve rated as 5’s.

(12oz bottle thanks to BMan1113VR bottled in May) Pours clear orange-yellow with nice bubbles. Nose of pineapple, melon, and light citrus. Taste of bread, medium bitterness, orange oils with a medium-thick body.

Beershine (5212) - 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
