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.

Hmmm Hops ? Pours a copper brown color with a touch of foam that settles out fast. Aromas are pizza dough, caramel and even a little graham cracker. On the palate its smooth malty and easy to drink... but Im not really detecting much hop presence at all... maybe a little earthy spice peaks through on the late to mid palate.

Bottle. Pours clear deep coppery amber with a large beige head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma its caramel, spruce, and flowery notes. Flavor is much the same, medium sweet caramel biscuit, very light bitterness, notes of pine and sweet caramel in the finish. Whereís the Simcoe?

Poured from keg at the local. Sweet an hoppy. Thicker beer. Enjoyed it. Different IPA than I'm used to ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I love IPAís. I am shocked at the low ratings this beer received. Nice hoppy taste and great full flavor. The finish was nice too - not too bitter with an IBU rating of 69. I recommend this IPA. The review that wondered if the keg was old...something was wrong. I drank the IPA out of a bottle. This beer has a really nice balance with the flavor!

on tap at rePUBlic, Iím hoping this is just an old keg, otherwise they donít love hops.. there are none in this beer, and i get no simcoe which is easily distinguised.. sad attempt at an IPA

Double dry hopped special at Fulton brewery. Cask pour into brandy tulip, hazy chestnut brown, fine head, lots of lacing. Floral and citrus hop nose. Very creamy mouthfeel, initial hop bitterness melts to a strange bread midrange and then finishes with a hint of alcohol and more hops. Hard to rate. Nothing is obviously wrong but it tastes just a bit off. Maybe that malty midnote...

12 oz bottle pour into pint glass. Good color and flavor, not a palate wrecker by any means. Solid hop flavor with a clean taste. Solid head on the pour, decent tracing

Bottle. Pours a light coppery color with a small egg shell head. Nose is earthy notes with resiny hops. Palate is medium with a slickness and a bite in the swallow with a throat sting. Flavors of tobacco, resiny hops and earthy malts.
