COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lager meets IPA in a winning combination.

Our Fathom India Pale Lager combines time-honored lagering techniques with the hop profiles of a West Coast IPA recipe. The cold-fermenting lager yeast provides a clean base that allows the citrus and pine aromas from the hops to really shine. The result is a gold medal beer with a refreshing, easy drinking character and just the right amount of depth.

Hopmaestro (321) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2015
The aroma is medium sweet from apricots and a touch of honey sprayed with hops. Taste is delivered in a softly carbonated body, and it comes in a perfect mix between Westcoast IPA and fresh, crisp Pilsener. Grapefruity hops mixes with biscuit notes together with pineapple and flowers shaking hands with the bitterness that follows.

Senap (409) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2015
En riktig trevlig bekantskap. Funkar perfekt till den lite mer kryddade grillade korven eller något annat grillat.

Can from Systembolaget, Haparanda. Deep golden, quite clear beer with a thick white head. Tea and apple juice in the aroma. Flavour is a bit sweet, teaish and bitter. Very refreshing palate. Quite nice this union of IPA and lager.
