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.

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.

Poured from a 12oz bottle. Not a lot of aroma, malt forward. Not a bad ipa, but not be best. Better fresh and has a nice after taste. But has the potential to be a malt bomb if not consumed fresh.

riversideAK (5697) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Nose is mostly toasty malt with a fairly herbal hop presence. Some light caramel notes. Amber hazy pour nice head some lace. Flavors of toast, someone sweetness, herbal hops some dank bitterness. Balanced but just not assertive in one way or another for me to love it. Not bad though.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2015 I was addicted to this stuff at one point where I was getting a 6 pack a week. A very solid ipa thatís not overly bitter or citrusy. Pretty smooth stuff at 6.4 abv.

A hazy amber beer with a small off-white head. The aroma is floral, piney hops and toasty malt. The flavor is the same.

Bottle gift from a neighbors visit back home in Wisconsin. Pours an orange color with a small white head. Aroma is earthy hops and malts. The taste is earthy too. Sticky sweet malts as well. Kind of plain but in a good way. Very drinkable.

DeanF (1746) - Nunavut, CANADA - AUG 7, 2014
Has a boring foggy brown body with no head. Soft hazelnut malt aroma with plenty of hops. Flavour has plenty of sharp hops with a bitter dry finish, but somehow comes off as a little watery on the mouthfeel. Well constructed but somewhat lacking, and doesnít emerge from the pack as memorable.

Caramel orange in color... Smells like the first pitch of hops into the brew kettle... Flavor is tea, berries, earthy hops... Great beer, nice break from west coast IPAs ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
