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.

Citrus and malt nose. Not as Hoppy as advertised. Malty palate with slight lingering bitter finish. Its ok.

12oz bottle at Sweet Child o Vine. Pours a clear amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is malty, bready, some grassy hops. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, bready, fruity, some light hop bitterness, with a light fruity finish.

On tap @ the Wild Onion. Appearance is a clear copper color. Aroma is a medium amount of flowery hops, and just a little caramel malt. Taste is a controlled dose of hops, with some caramel and toffee mixed in. This is not in-your-face citrus like west-coast IPAs, but instead the taste fades quickly and leaves a small amount of bitterness. Itís really drinkable, and medium bodied with good carbonation (not watery).

On draft at the airport. This is full of orange rind. Hints of tartness, malty/ grainy, slightly soapy. This is off, not very enjoyable.

Iíve had this brew numerous times and have noticed a common theme: itís rather delicious out of the tap but quite mediocre from the bottle. Served from the Fulton Tap Room by Target Field, it had a nice caramel color, prefect thin head and quality hop flavor. Out of the bottle it tastes like home brew. Will continue to order this on tap and avoid it from the retailers.

Pours a nice orange colour. Nice fruity aromas. Hops too. Similar flavours follow. Decent stuff.

Not the most intense IPA, but still a pretty nice one. I think itís a bit better than the average rating lets on.

Nero55 (829) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Bottle. Pours coppery-amber color with off white head. Some citrus notes with a slightly sweet, malty body. Not much of a hop aroma or flavor for an IPA. Not a beer for hopheads.

mnmike (1054) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 5, 2012
On draft at Target Field. Not really what Iím looking for in an IPA. Aroma and hop profile are not pronounced enough. Still a decent, but underwhelming entry to this crowded field with high expectations.
