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.

OnWisconsin (140) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 5, 2013
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.

TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Draft on tap at the brewery (Minneapolis, MN). Pours a deeper copper amber hue, darker body, richer orange honeybrown glow, mellow haziness. Orange amber edges glow. A frothy offwhite head laces well on the glass, mellow lacing. Frothy head laces ok. Aromas are a good deal of english malt, biscuit and gentle toffee. Toast, dry florals and earthy hops. Mellow bitterness, toasty malts. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, offering toasty malts, biscuits and a decent floral and earthy hopping. Grass and gentle lemon. A bit of body, gentle spiciness as we move back, firmer florals and grass bitter it up a bit. A touch of body, toast and biscuit. Bready malts. A firm hopping that is in the true English tradition. What it lacks in creativity or oomph, it makes up for in sound and balanced brewing. Not bad.

12oz bottle at Sweet Child o Vine. Pours a clear amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is malty, bready, some grassy hops. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, bready, fruity, some light hop bitterness, with a light fruity finish.

3.4
Ericular (1038) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 27, 2013
On tap @ the Wild Onion. Appearance is a clear copper color. Aroma is a medium amount of flowery hops, and just a little caramel malt. Taste is a controlled dose of hops, with some caramel and toffee mixed in. This is not in-your-face citrus like west-coast IPAs, but instead the taste fades quickly and leaves a small amount of bitterness. It’s really drinkable, and medium bodied with good carbonation (not watery).

Gription79 (2892) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JAN 22, 2013
On draft at the airport. This is full of orange rind. Hints of tartness, malty/ grainy, slightly soapy. This is off, not very enjoyable.
