RATINGS: 144   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.57/5   ABV: -
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.

Pours a clear orange amber color with a small white head. Faint aroma of tangerine and wet spring grass. Taste is slightly sweet with hints of tangerine, caramel and light hops. Average at best.

Bottled in May. Pours a mostly clear, orangey, amber color with a less then moderate, creamy, and off-white head; settles quickly leaving a small amount and minimal lacing. Nose is fair and faint; notes of tangerine, grass, biscuits, and caramel. Flavor is much of the same; starts with tangerine and light caramel sweetness with a grassy, slightly dry, moderate bitterness following and a touch of biscuits. Palate is soft to lively, a bit watery, and medium light. Finishes with the grassy bitterness lingering for a fair amount of time. Not a bad IPA but somewhat lacking in character or interesting qualities. Simple and more like an APA than IPA.

On tap at the CO springs Il Vicino location. Hoppy aroma with a slightly sweet tinge. Faint hop taste and highly carbonated. Quickly finished since this was an unpleasant restaurant to enjoy a beer.

Thanks to BeerandBlues2 for this brew--which I greatly enjoyed. The pour was a nice hazy orange and brown color, Aroma is a great hoppy aroma that doesnt overpower you with cloying sweet smells that you get from many IIPAs. The palate is so nice--perfect carbonation and very smooth. Great balanced flavor right off the bat. Easy to drink and the perfect amount of bitterness and caramel/biscuit flavors make this really enjoyable. I wont soon forget this one...

Draft at the Brewery. An excellent IPA for sipping on while getting a tour of the brewery (Thanks Jeff). Nice amber color with not a lot of head. Lots of hoppy citrus aroma and more in the flavor. Very hoppy and pretty smooth in the finish considering all the hop bitterness in there. Very good.

Bottled by Bristol Brewing. Opportunity courtesy of the generous Mr. Bert. Light orange/amber color, nice initial head, good retention. Lacing was nil. Caramel was dominating in the aroma. Flavor was caramel, spices, slightly sweet, too sweet? Average mouthfeel, significant carbonation, slightly astringent, and a little sticky all at the same time. I dont like when caramel takes over my IPAs, and this had a sweetness added to it that was undesirable.
