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.

Bomber packaged 15147. Pours bright golden that leaves a small white film. Very grassy and earthy on the nose. Flavor is more mild and the malt comes through much more. Pretty sweet overall. Clean finish. Decent.

stefannilssons (1530) - SWEDEN - JUN 29, 2015
Det här var en trevlig och kraftfull sak med toner av grapefrukt och tallbarr. Kroppen var okej men balansen satt inte helt på plats. Men på det stora hela var det en finfin upplevelse!

Amber. Nose of citrusy pine and mild grapefruit. Light sweet malt with sudsy citrus. Cleaner than an ale but not overly lager like in character. Good but somewhat scaled back. Not sure how old, due to the born-on date being smudged.

Draught @ The Ginger Man, New York, NY
Pours clear amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, alcohol and floral. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long malty, caramel and floral finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

TChrome (1447) - Bedford, Texas, USA - JUN 24, 2015
Beer pours a clear golden color with an off white colored head that mostly dissipates. Aromas of citrus and pine. Taste is mostly bitter with a bitter finish. Probably about as good as this category can get. Ballast Point rocks the house, again!

PriorL (2643) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUN 24, 2015
CAN shared with Mathieu87. APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, small unstable white head. NOSE: hoppy, pine, fruity, rather sweet. TASTE: hoppy, rather dry, fruity, caramel. Decent in general, but lacks something.

Had a sample at World of Beer Fest. Taste was refreshing as advertised, but a little watery. The bitter finish then takes you by surprise. I much prefer Sculpin.

Man tror sig vara i sjunde himlen när man plötsligt snubblar på en malplacerad alkoholhalt - en tillsynsmyndighet borde införa gränsvärden och utdöma viten för överträdelser - och faller handlöst tillbaka till jorden, krasch, boom, bang. Hoppas att detta blir en läxa och att de nu tar fram en säkrare modell, fri från riskfyllda alkoholhalter.

Gaultier (892) - SWEDEN - JUN 22, 2015
@ Agards väg. Can from Systembolaget. Hoppy and fruity with grapefruit and pine needles, also some malt (in the aroma). Body is medium, the finish is dry and fruity.

elosop (203) - SWEDEN - JUN 20, 2015
Halmgul med lite skum. Aromen frisk och fräsch. Smaken välbalanserad mellan citrustoner och balanserad lageröl. Den relativt höga alkoholhalten känns inte alls. God.
