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.

Ericular (1042) - 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).

On draft at the airport. This is full of orange rind. Hints of tartness, malty/ grainy, slightly soapy. This is off, not very enjoyable.

I’ve had this brew numerous times and have noticed a common theme: it’s rather delicious out of the tap but quite mediocre from the bottle. Served from the Fulton Tap Room by Target Field, it had a nice caramel color, prefect thin head and quality hop flavor. Out of the bottle it tastes like home brew. Will continue to order this on tap and avoid it from the retailers.

Pours a nice orange colour. Nice fruity aromas. Hops too. Similar flavours follow. Decent stuff.

Not the most intense IPA, but still a pretty nice one. I think it’s a bit better than the average rating lets on.

Nero55 (947) - Nevada, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Bottle. Pours coppery-amber color with off white head. Some citrus notes with a slightly sweet, malty body. Not much of a hop aroma or flavor for an IPA. Not a beer for hopheads.

mnmike (1091) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 5, 2012
On draft at Target Field. Not really what I’m looking for in an IPA. Aroma and hop profile are not pronounced enough. Still a decent, but underwhelming entry to this crowded field with high expectations.

2.7
bottleforager (3211) - Gray, Maine, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Hmmm Hops ? Pours a copper brown color with a touch of foam that settles out fast. Aromas are pizza dough, caramel and even a little graham cracker. On the palate its smooth malty and easy to drink... but Im not really detecting much hop presence at all... maybe a little earthy spice peaks through on the late to mid palate.

3.2
bytemesis (9515) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear deep coppery amber with a large beige head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma its caramel, spruce, and flowery notes. Flavor is much the same, medium sweet caramel biscuit, very light bitterness, notes of pine and sweet caramel in the finish. Where’s the Simcoe?
