COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

As far as English IPAís go, itís not bad. Thereís more spice in this brew than others of the same category. Itís almost a hybrid beer: wheat and IPA. Iíd probably go for it on-tap but not again in the bottle. I also noticed that with every sip the taste seemed to be a less satisfying. However, if you are a big fan of English IPAís and want a bit of a change from the everyday beer, then go for this one.

Bottle. Golden pour with a small beige head. Modest aroma is malty and sweet. Very little hops.... similar in taste. Malt base is a little too dominant. It is sweet though, like the name implies.

Poured a dark golden orange with a half finer white head. Not much on the nose but what I do get is some mild earthy aromas. On the taste there is some sweetness up front with a light smooth maltiness in the middle. It followes with some grass and earthy hops on the finish that linger just a bit. Mouthfeel is light but smooth with soft carbonation.

TheAlum (5687) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Draft on tap at the brewery (Minneapolis, MN). Pours a deeper copper amber hue, darker body, richer orange honeybrown glow, mellow haziness. Orange amber edges glow. A frothy offwhite head laces well on the glass, mellow lacing. Frothy head laces ok. Aromas are a good deal of english malt, biscuit and gentle toffee. Toast, dry florals and earthy hops. Mellow bitterness, toasty malts. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, offering toasty malts, biscuits and a decent floral and earthy hopping. Grass and gentle lemon. A bit of body, gentle spiciness as we move back, firmer florals and grass bitter it up a bit. A touch of body, toast and biscuit. Bready malts. A firm hopping that is in the true English tradition. What it lacks in creativity or oomph, it makes up for in sound and balanced brewing. Not bad.
