COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

I love IPAs. 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!

Double dry hopped special at Fulton brewery. Cask pour into brandy tulip, hazy chestnut brown, fine head, lots of lacing. Floral and citrus hop nose. Very creamy mouthfeel, initial hop bitterness melts to a strange bread midrange and then finishes with a hint of alcohol and more hops. Hard to rate. Nothing is obviously wrong but it tastes just a bit off. Maybe that malty midnote...

12 oz bottle pour into pint glass. Good color and flavor, not a palate wrecker by any means. Solid hop flavor with a clean taste. Solid head on the pour, decent tracing

Bottle. Pours a light coppery color with a small egg shell head. Nose is earthy notes with resiny hops. Palate is medium with a slickness and a bite in the swallow with a throat sting. Flavors of tobacco, resiny hops and earthy malts.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Bottle. Poured a clear dark orange color. The head was two fingers high and off white. Malt-predominant nose with caramel, butter scotch, and steeping barley notes. There was also a decent whiff of citrusy hop. Light to medium bodied and slightly sweet with mild bitterness. Malt heavy as foreshadowed by the aroma. Buttery caramel and light pine-like hop. Not bad, but too much butterscotchy malt backbone and not enough bitterness for me.

Golden in color, clear with a thin head. Easy drinking ale with light hops and mild malt.
