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.

Bottle at Andy’s while watching football with him, Pearl, Max, and Paul. Pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Soft malt and a bit of sweetness and a touch of hops. Malt, a bit earthy, sweet malt, not much else. Finishes with a bit of earthy bitterness. Decent I guess.

Bottle. Caramel, tree bark, tootsie roll, and light butterscotch nose. Medium copper color with a one-finger creamy head. Rough malty initial, with some bitter and candyish notes / mild and balanced...and not a lot else. Medium body. Okay. Very mild all around.

They say they use a lot of hops. This ain’t no San Diego IPA. But it is good. Well balanced. I decent session beer.

Pours a red-orange, clear color. A bit of white head. Aroma is resinous, with some sweet malt. Flavors of pine resin again, and fresh bread. Very doughy for an IPA with a fairly malty finish. I would probably consider this more of a regular pale ale, but I do find it pretty enjoyable.

Had it out of a 12oz bottle. Poured a dark clear amber color with a yellow head, and the dreaded wet basement aroma. The taste has blast of hops with notes of caramel.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2013 Tasted from a 12 ounce bottle. Clear amber color with a white bubbly head. More malt than hops on the aroma, and surprisingly, the taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Meh, pretty forgettable overall. Not much complexity, not a lot of flavor, but definitely an easy drinker, which might the appeal. Nice bottle design, though.
