Minnesota, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly Batch 300

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND, PERMANENTLY

Originally brewed as a one-off in celebration of the 300th batch at our original downtown Minneapolis brewery, this West Coast IPA was so well received we had to make it available year-round. It's built on a base of Pilsner malt and heavily hopped with Mosaic, one of our favorite -- and unfortunately nearly impossible to procure -- hop varieties. At 74 IBU and 7% ABV, 300 is pure hop candy.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 12 oz bottle on June 18, 2016. 74 IBU. Smell is floral, tropical and fruity with some sweet malt aromas. Taste is a reflection of the aroma with some berry flavors as well. Feel is medium in body and initially bitter but finishes with a creamy smoothness.

12oz bottle of the Garage Series release. Served in a snifter glass.

Pours a clear, darker copper-orange body, two finger effervescent offwhite head with good retention. Nice splotchy lacing. Smells of citrus and passion fruit, sweet grainy toffee. For the most part, nice hoppy aroma and pleasant. This beer ratchets things up quite a bit on the palate, though. Very nice grapefruit and passion fruit with sweet toffee in the background, a bit of graininess. It's very nicely balanced with a solid tropical fruit bitterness on the backend. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, solid carbonation, with a moderate grapefruit bitterness on the backend. Overall, a very more than solid single hop IPA that is quite balanced. Mosaic is expressed fairly well here with a nice bitterness to round things out.

Canned 1/23. This a magnificent mosaic showcase. Up front I tasted bountiful, fresh tasting, sticky sweet tropical fruits. The finish brings a pleasantly biting citrus rind note and some tingly pine. This liquid hop candy goes down quick and easy. Highly recommended .

16 oz can poured into a pint glass. Clear orange, white head. Sticky lacing. Sweet citrus and malt on the nose and palate. Orange, melon, papaya, touch of pine. Slightly sweet malt backbone. Semi-dry finish. Great balance with subtle bitterness. Medium bodied and an easy drink. My first experience with Fulton and a pleasurable one. Nice use of Mosaic hops. Will revisit again soon. Recommended.

I read that this beer won a blind tasting of 50+ Minnesota IPAs, so I bought a six pack the first time I saw it on the shelf. A: Orange/gold, average head, good lacing. S: Slight malt, lots of citrus. T: malt is kind of sweet, a little caramally, and just enough flavor to stand up to the hops, which are more bitter than expected--less citrus, more pine. Nice, but something in the aftertaste doesn't sit well on my palate--definately the malt flavors, but I don't know how to describe it. Astringency? Otherwise, these flavors are right up my alley. M: medium body, a little thick at the end and somewhat astringent. O: Pretty good but not as good as I was expecting. C'est la vie, non ? I suspect my expectations were too high.

12 ounce bottle into an IPA glass. (And I've also had this on draft.) Appearance is a deep golden color, with a nice head that fades to quite a lot of lacing. The aroma is piney hops. The flavor is piney and hoppy, with malt and some sweetness. The body is medium full. It finishes with appropriate bitterness, but it's not a bitterness bomb by any means. Very nicely done.
