Best beer I've ever had. A gift of Minneapolis!!!!!! You must get a pint.

I always thought Surlys Furious was the best until I had Fulton Sweet Child of Vine, (on tap).It blew Surly’s away. Every beer they produce is top notch. And they bottle it (not can’s). Highly recommended on tap, but bottled is pretty darn good as well. Wheels2509 (2) - - MAY 14, 2013 does not count
Excellent IPA. Found this by accident at a TGI's in MSP. Very impressed. Will have to look for more Fulton beers.

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2015 I was addicted to this stuff at one point where I was getting a 6 pack a week. A very solid ipa that’s not overly bitter or citrusy. Pretty smooth stuff at 6.4 abv. mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - MAR 3, 2014
I personally found this to be an interesting contrast to American IPAs. Hoppy, but without the prominent citrus, pine , or resin notes that are typical of IPAs here. I can’t come up with a good description other than perhaps earthy or more base. Bitter, but also subdued in this way as well.

Served in Shaker glass. Dark amber in color with a medium head. Mild floral nose with some citrus notes. Nice malty flavors with a surprisingly mild hoppiness for an IPA. Pleasing on the palate with a smooth, not overly drying finish.
Very easy drinker by IPA standards and a fun break from intensely hopped versions. mikehanneman (63) - Iowa, USA - OCT 2, 2012
I love IPA’s. 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! commonmac (1311) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Tap at Whitey’s served up pint glass style. Color is borderline mahogany. A very deep copper. Head prevalent throughout consumption indicating some strong freshness. Plenty of hops to be found but not heavy on bitter mouthfeel. Strong piney aroma. Ends like an IPA should with some bite and a pleasant hoppy aftertaste. This one does indeed have eyes of the bluest skies. bsp77 (724) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Poured from tap into Pint glass.
Appearance: Clear dark amber with moderate off-white head and nice lacing lines.
Aroma: Nice hop aroma of pine and juicy grapefruit and citrus, countered by toasted malts.
Taste: Very well balanced for an IPA. Nice hop taste of pine and grapefruit balanced by caramel and toasted malts. Ends slightly bitter, but only slighty - more spicy than bitter.
Palate: Relatively low carbonation, medium body with very dry finish (especially considering it is only somewhat bitter).
Overall: Very well balanced and easy to drink IPA. Great flavor overall but could use a little more bitterness so I need to dock it a little. Just a touch too balanced for my IPA tastes.

Has a nice golden amber color with short white head. Has a super nice bitterness with a nice malt.
