Fulton Brewing Company: Sweet Child of Vine

Sweet Child of Vine
Fulton Brewing Company
No known address
(contract brewing)
14B. American IPA

Aroma: (10/12)
Aroma is very piny and hoppy.  As description
from their website states, the glacier hops
do shine through.

Appearance: (3/3)
Copper color. Pours from the tap a small
head that quickly subsides, yet laces
glass fairly well.

Flavor: (14/20)
The flavor is hoppy of course, but there
is little, otherwise. Lots of hops upfront,
then lingers well; quite dry!

Mouthfeel: (4/5)
Nice light body. Beer is pretty darn dry.
The typical general IPA feel here...

Overall Impression: (7/10)
The beer is very sessionable, although almost
too piny and one-dimensional. Piny flavor lingers
a long time even after the dryness.

TOTAL: 38/50


  1. Looking forward to trying some of their stuff. Where did you find this on tap?

  2. They have it on tap right now at the Muddy Pig in St. Paul.
