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.

draft 2/26/16 (Crowne Plaza-Bloomington)-Pours amber with a decent head. Aroma of hops, malt, and sweetness. Taste of the same. This medium bodied brew is well balanced.

asheft (2901) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2016
On tap at Tony Romaís, 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.

DandyWolfFloyd (1007) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2016
Aroma - caramel and pine hops. Appearance - the body is hazed mahogany. The head is 2+" and beige in color. The head slowly settles. Great lacing. Taste - rich caramel malt, pungent and piney hops. There is also a little bit of herby hops. Palate - medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, dry abrupt finish.

drpimento (2966) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 14, 2016
Aroma isnít 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.

CanIHave4Beers (3942) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - DEC 28, 2015
Bottle, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
Pours a full on orange color with a big tight white head and some lacing on the glass.

The aroma is sweet tarts, aspirin, melon and citrus forward hops, and a mild bit of crystal malt.

The flavor is leafy like romaine lettuce, lightly bitter but still manages an astringent finish, and has a bit of sweet tart flavor. The actual hop flavor is reasonably low but features a bit of citrus zest and a little bit of floral character.

Um, I swear this was reasonably good on draught, but wow!

16 oz can to pint. Pours hazy copper, creamy beige head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine and grass. Taste of the same with a green tea bitter finish. Mouthful is mod syrupy, appropriate carb.

Tap in MSP airport. Remembered as a good IPA, this tap seemed boozy and off putting. Very possibly a bad snapshot. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tmongoose (2106) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 14, 2015
16iz can shared. Poured a medium dark orange with white head. The aroma is strictly English ipa. Medium malt base and a medium hop aroma light citrus scent. The flavor is more of the same nice mellow malt and a medium hop flavor not a west coast or east coast ipa but an English ipa. Very drinkable.
