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.

Excellent IPA. Found this by accident at a TGI's in MSP. Very impressed. Will have to look for more Fulton beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I personally found this to be an interesting contrast to American IPAs. Hoppy, but without the prominent citrus, pine , or resin notes that are typical of IPAs here. I canít come up with a good description other than perhaps earthy or more base. Bitter, but also subdued in this way as well.

Served in Shaker glass. Dark amber in color with a medium head. Mild floral nose with some citrus notes. Nice malty flavors with a surprisingly mild hoppiness for an IPA. Pleasing on the palate with a smooth, not overly drying finish. Very easy drinker by IPA standards and a fun break from intensely hopped versions.

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!

Tap at Whiteyís served up pint glass style. Color is borderline mahogany. A very deep copper. Head prevalent throughout consumption indicating some strong freshness. Plenty of hops to be found but not heavy on bitter mouthfeel. Strong piney aroma. Ends like an IPA should with some bite and a pleasant hoppy aftertaste. This one does indeed have eyes of the bluest skies.

Poured from tap into Pint glass. Appearance: Clear dark amber with moderate off-white head and nice lacing lines. Aroma: Nice hop aroma of pine and juicy grapefruit and citrus, countered by toasted malts. Taste: Very well balanced for an IPA. Nice hop taste of pine and grapefruit balanced by caramel and toasted malts. Ends slightly bitter, but only slighty - more spicy than bitter. Palate: Relatively low carbonation, medium body with very dry finish (especially considering it is only somewhat bitter). Overall: Very well balanced and easy to drink IPA. Great flavor overall but could use a little more bitterness so I need to dock it a little. Just a touch too balanced for my IPA tastes.

Tap. Pint glass. Hazy cloudy red. A unique ipa with some heavy sugar notes. Full bodied. Aroma is of sweet hops. One of my standby beers in the twin cities.
