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.

Draft at the Ballast Point. Poured a clear yellow-orange color with a small off-white head. Aroma was light resin, hoppy notes and a grassy character. Flavor had strong grassy notes, floral hops.

35,5cl can from Arve_Christian - thanks a lot! Pours clear deep golden with a white head. Fairly fruity and hoppy aroma with notes of tropical fruits, some pine, herbs, pale malt, caramel and hints of grass. Medium sweet with quite balanced hoppy flavours, medium bitter and surprisingly tasty and easy to drink. Usually not a huge fan of strong lager or IPL, but this one I enjoyed,

Rune (9405) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 16, 2015
355ml can bought from djoeye. The body has got a golden-orange colour, slightly hazy. Stable off-white head, spotty lacing. Moderate fruity aroma of peach and apricot. Mixed flavours of pale and brown malts along with notes of pine and apricot. Rounded mid-sweet ending, mostly hidden alcohol. Smooth on the swallow. Not bad at all (enjoyed in sunny weather up north in Tromsø 15.08.2015).

AirForceHops (4692) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 15, 2015
650 ml purchased at One Stop Market. Clear gold color with skimpy head. Aroma of fruity peach, Mango, pine, maybe even citrus.

Well crafted lager. Body is a bit bolder then I was expecting, juicy fruit texture with some moderate amount of malt to give the hops balance. Mild bitter. Nice drink.

emusche (70) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 14, 2015
Pours gold with a thin, tinny head. Aroma is heavy citrus, forward hops and piney resin. Taste is hops, dank pine, citrus and semi-sweet malt. Slightly oily mouthfeel, but not undesirable. Seems well-balanced; I like it.

Nordcore (1166) - Lyngen alps, NORWAY - AUG 13, 2015
Can 33 cl. Amber, clear with a medium white head. Hoppy, floral aroma with some tropical sense. Bitter taste, Hoppy and a metallic end.

yngwie (15567) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 9, 2015
On tap at The Ginger Man, NY. Almost clear in the glass, amber in color and topped by a dense, finger-thick off-white head. Pine cones, some grass and booze and a rather malty touch in the aroma. Caramel too. It has a nice bitterness to deal with the caramel malts, along with grass, piney flavors. It’s dry and nicely carbonated, with a faint warming touch, and a long finish. Not my kind of beer this one, but at least it gets better after a few sips. 150624

larsga (6771) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 7, 2015
Big white head quickly shrinks into coarse lacing. Clear amber body. Resiny floral plastic aroma with raisin notes. Dry-sweet resiny spicy floral taste with plastic notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry resiny floral herbal aftertaste with minty fruity saffron notes. Partly excellent, but the plastic does it no favours. (0.355l can, from Systembolaget, Visby.)

Wasn’t sure about this at first, but I’m sure glad I took a chance on it. Subtle citrus and floral aroma. Taste added a hint of sweetness that morphed into a long-lasting bitter finish.

Yeah it's really good. This and the Sierra Nevada Hoppy Lager are the two best IPLs out there right now. The review just before mine gives a perfect description of Fathom! Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
