2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Despite the overall numbers, I gotta say that I’m not a fan of this beer. It has a really off-putting and nasty flavor that I taste, especially toward the finish. I was struggling for a long time, trying to nail down what exactly that flavor was. The only thing I could really come up with was a sour, grassy, fruity flavor that just completely ruined the entire brew. It seemed to leave a thick, velvety film on my tongue, tasting almost like a boozy, outdated banana. After drinking another can of this, I believe that undesirable flavor to be black licorice. Everything else was going decently until that off taste turned up: light gold pour with a thick and sticky white head, nice lacing, mostly hoppy aroma with some fruit thrown in. This is the first bad experience I’ve had with Ballast Point (that I can recall), and I’m really shocked the Fathom IPL turned out to be such a disappointment. I’m not sure what to do with the other four cans of this sixer...

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma hits hard with the stonefruits, papaya and peach in plenty amount. Slight caramel. Flavor is very crisp and clean with tons of stonefruit flavors, crisp, bready, malty flavors and a finish that rounds it off nicely. This was incredibly good.

Can from total wine.
Fuck, I can’t believe how bad this is. Ballast Point never seems to even swerve the least bit in quality, but here they drove the bus right off the bridge. It starts out OK. Orangish pour, white head. Pretty decent citrus hop aroma. Hops on the front end of the flavor profile, but then this sickly sweet fermented fruit thing kicks in and ruins the entire experience. Wow. Total drain pour. I’m going to go pour myself a decent pils and try to forget the experience.
