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.

Hoppy crisp aroma. Some notes of the lager base but some sweeter yeasty flavors come through. An unfiltered feel to it. Nice floral hop flavor and a bitter finish. Probably the best IPL I have had, but do prefer the ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Top marks for me exactly what a strong lager can taste like gobble gobble yum yum. Tasting notes ? Get me another fathom, barman

Cybercat (3984) - Georgia, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Pours a nice clear amber with a thin ivory head. Aroma is quite hoppy with a malty underpinning, like a good IPA. Flavor is boldly hoppy, just a little bitter - you hardly know this is a lager rare than an ale. Finish is lively and hoppy. Texture is fairly firm and leaves a good tingle. Fathom this.

Good for style. Big ibu of 70, orange citrus, very much like a regular West Coast IPA. Green hop aroma.

On draft. Bullshit marketing beer category, and you can kind of tell by the beer. Lager. Ridonk hop presence, to little particular benefit. Meh.

mixmasterob (959) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 14, 2014
Bright golden pour with a small white head. Aroma was fresh and citrusy with a nice bready backbone. Flavors were slightly sweet and syrupy, big citrus kick. Mouthfeel was medium and somewhat viscous, syrupy finish. Moderate carbonation. Grassy bittersweet finish. I’ve always liked this style, this is a prime example.

Tap at rattle n hum, new york. Clear deep golden color, white head. Aroma is sweet malty, fruity, vanilla, caramel, hops. Sweet malty body, nicely hopped, vanilla notes.

Bottle:   Golden, a little fiery, very fine sediment, thin to moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Strong grass up front, hidden behind some alcohol and hops.   Oh nice, soft straw/hay up front, sweet, smooth, with citrus bitterness and hops coming in on the backside.   This one is very well balanced.   Finishes both aspects of a big lager with a nice Pale Ale or IPA.   Well balanced is how I would sum this up, everything works well together, and clean!
