At Fulton, we love hops. That star in our logo is made out of hops, in case you hadnt noticed. Of course, the hops plant contributes to the character of all of our beers, but sometimes we just want more. Thats 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 dont 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. Its an IPA, Fulton-style.

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.

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.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Appearance: Copper and amber under an off-white head which fades slowly into a thick collar with nothing much left in the middle. Swirls with tight arcs of lace.
Nose: Mild. What I am able to discern is sweet malt caramelization and sticky pine resin.
Palate: Just as mild as the nose which requires lots of digging deep for discernible flavors. Medium light weight and mouthfeel. A tad sticky up front and in the middle. Hop leaves and pine in the breath. A touch astringent underneath and in the back. Dried apple peel in the back of each swallow. Stale bread crust underneath.
Final Thoughts: Not horrible, not great, and quite forgettable. Cool name and quaint logo does not a good beer make. Back to the drawing board.

Bottle - Had a deep copper, earthy look to it on the pour with a medium foamy head. The aroma was disappointing as it seemed a little sour (not sweet at all). Has an earthy malty backbone to it and a dank finish. Not all that great. Next.
