Had this in uptown at Williams, and I will lead off by saying this is one of the most sessionable IPA's I've had the fortune of enjoying.

I do enjoy a super hoppy beer -- my recent experience with Surly Wet reaffirms my faith in the hop gods -- but Fulton shines in that it doesn't destroy your taste buds after 3 sips, like some IPA's do.

The glacial hops blend well with the malt, but still remain at the forefront of both smell and taste. It tastes a lot like an ESB might if you juiced up the bitterness a notch, clearly letter the imbiber know that hops is in charge. I love balanced beers, as they provide me the best drinking experience.

Serving type: on-tap

3.64/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

On draft at The Local, Minneapolis.

Dark amber with off white film.
Resin and apricot on the nose.
Toast, chocolate, butterscotch, and burnt orange hops with some lean bitterness.
Medium, chewy, round.

Some odd notes, but a steady IPA overall. Departs from the usual IPA profile, but I’m not sure how purposeful that is - why the all the dark crystal malts? Not very English either. Mostly sessionable, if curious.
