COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At Fulton, we love hops. That star in our logo is made out of hops, in case you hadn’t noticed. Of course, the hops plant contributes to the character of all of our beers, but sometimes we just want more. That’s 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 don’t 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. It’s an IPA, Fulton-style.

I always thought Surlys Furious was the best until I had Fulton Sweet Child of Vine, (on tap).It blew Surly’s away. Every beer they produce is top notch. And they bottle it (not can’s). Highly recommended on tap, but bottled is pretty darn good as well.

Draft. Pours bronze with thick light beige head and lacing. Grapefruit and earthy grass hop aroma. Bread crust malt with earthy hops and grapefruit notes. A maltier IPA; not an especially hoppy IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Tony Roma’s, Mall of America. Sweet toffee malt in balance with pine and stone fruit and with strawberry notes. Almost clear bronze under a lacy white ring. Flavour is a balance of sweet caramel and assertive bitterness with apricot, pine, and a little pineapple. Medium body, medium carbonation, crisp.

drpimento (3126) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 14, 2016
Aroma isn’t bad; appearance is pretty good Taste at first, while seeming more like a PA versus an IPA and fairly balanced, then in the finish lost that with an almost burning bitterness that was unpleasant though thankfully not too long lasting.
