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.

brokensail (16486) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 3, 2012
The pour is sort of a dark amber color with a white head. Quite malty and sweet with minimal hop aroma. A hint of floral hops and maybe a touch of citrus peel. The flavor is similarly lacking in the hop department. Bread and toffee are the prominent flavors with a little caramel, too. Mild floral hop flavor and very little in the way of bitterness.

On draught at one of the bars at MSP. The beer pours a clear copper color with a medium foamy off-white head that dissipates slowly. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, pine and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of hops, grainy malt and a touch of pine. The finish is moderately bitter with a short resiny hops aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

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.
