At Fulton, we love hops. That star in our logo is made out of hops, in case you hadnít noticed. Of course, the hops plant contributes to the character of all of our beers, but sometimes we just want more. Thatís why we decided to brew the Sweet Child of Vine. Generous quantities of Simcoe and Glacier hops are added throughout the boil. Then, late in the fermentation process, we infuse the Sweet Child with another dose of Glaciers, imparting a bouquet of hop aroma that veritably bursts forth upon serving. But donít let all this talk of hops mislead you. The Sweet Child has a serious malt backbone to stand up to all those hops, creating a delightful balance that will keep you coming back for more. Itís an IPA, Fulton-style.

Sampled at Winterfest 2012. Poured pale amber with little white soapy head that dissipates. Aroma is really nice and bright hop fruitiness and orange peel. Taste is big bright fruity hops and oranges with a malty bitter finish. Palate is medium clean and crisp.

On tap. Pour dark amber with a foamy sticky kahki head and leaves sticky lacing. Aroma is malt metallic and no real noticable hops. Taste is bitter hops and bready caramel malt. Palate is medium feel with a gritty chaulky finish.

An already nice IPA with even more fantastic hoppy aroma! I suggest you pick some of this up.

Bottle courtesy of dougofthefuture. Served in a Bruery tulip. Pours a nice amber-copper color with a thin white head that very quickly recedes into a thin collar. The nose has some slight floral elements along with a lot of bread and some caramel. Very reminiscent of Dogfish 60. Flavor is similar with more of a malt emphasis. Even for an English IPA, this is really malt heavy. Very slight dryness to the finish. Brew itself is rather chewy. Decent enough, but nothing out of the ordinary.

Jan 29, 2012 tap at valley tap house. Cloudy orangish brown pour with some head and lacing. Weak hoppy aroma and taste is mild but nicely balanced.

nuplastikk (5270) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 26, 2012
12oz bottle shared by Mr. Pickles. Filtered. Orange tan with a large white head. Old school sort of Burton style aroma, some mild tropical tones..but a little odd. A little buttery, butterscotch. Some flowery action, sort of an English feel. OK, but. A little sub par.

madvike (3135) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 26, 2012
Bottle - Pours amber with a fluffy light tan head. Pretty caramelly, with almost chocolate notes in the nose. Light piney hops--pretty subtle. Tastes a little watery, with a big malt base and some spicy, piney hops. Real sharp on the finish--not sure if thatís hops or alcohol. Nicely carbonated, but a little watery. Kinda meh on this one.

Slight hoppy aroma but not super hoppy in its taste. Pretty light ipa flavor with subtle fruit and with a slight resin aftertaste.

Draft. Hazy amber color, thick tan head, delicate lacing. Aroma of tropical fruit, citrus, grass. Taste is bitter grapefruit and summer fruit. Nice.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2012 Growler from brewery. Copper color with foamy white head. Fresh hop aroma. Piney/citrusy hops are up front but balanced with caramel malt. Rather creamy texture. Easy drinking. I like this one...hops are prominent but not overpowering...some may not like that in an IPA but it is right up my alley. I know this IPA doesnít have quite the full body of others but this is one of the better IPAís Iíve had. Helps that itís fresh from the brewery.

Foamy head atop a deep orange body. Grainy, alcohol with light citrus hop aroma. Light bitterness, pretty tame for an IPA. Medium body thatís very bubbly.
