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.

Grabbed this thinking the IPL concept is pretty interesting. Pretty big hop aroma with a bit of bread. The flavor is a bit of citrus with a touch of grass. Maybe a touch of pineapple juice. Not very bitter. To me, it taste like a pale ale with a bit less maltiness. Pretty decent beer.

I just finished a bomber of double IPA so what better to help me fall farther into the abyss of drunkenness than a bomber of Fathom. I had never heard of an IPL until I saw this beer sitting on the shelf a few weeks ago, so I really don’t know what to expect. Pours a clear golden orange with a nice frothy white head. Seems to be sticking around pretty well. Aroma is orange juice, citrus candies, and pineapple. It honestly smells like a bag of those little orange slice candies with the sugar on them. I think Crush made them. I haven’t seen them in years but that is exactly what this reminds me of. The aroma is on the lighter side but it smells delicious. Flavor is orange, some nice bitterness from the hops, all rounded out by a sweet malty flavor that settles on the palate. Quite refreshing. A pretty straightforward brew that’s very enjoyable. A great summertime option. Ballast Point makes a hell of a beer.

Vignale (1975) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 20, 2014
Flaska från Galatea via SB. Gyllenfärgad, kompakt vit skumpuck. Ren, lätt humledoft med citrus och tall. Lätt krämig munkänsla, torr, ren, frisk smak. Bra västkusthumleprofil med citrus och tall och nyanser av aprikos och physalis. Torr eftersmak med lätt men tydlig beska. Snygg! Gillar den torra strama kroppen som ändå är mjukt krämig. Riktigt trevlig.

Draught @ Haket. Pours golden with a frothy offwhite head that slowly dissipates while leaving some thick sticky lacing and trace on the glass. Smell is fruity with white bread, overripe tropical fruits, moist grass, grapefruit hard candy, lemon zest, soil and pine needles. Taste is sweet and fruity with white bread, mango purée, pineapple juice, moist grass, moist soil, pine needles, resinous wood, cereal, lemon hard candy, lemon zest, orange peal and hints of alcohol. Mouthfeel is round, soft, slightly astringent and medium bodied. Finish is sweet, bitter and fruity with white bread, overripe tropical fruits, grapefruit rinds, resinous wood, moist grass, lemon peal and wine gums. Interesting but I imagine it’s much better if it hasn’t been forced to travel all the way here before being served...

Smell is clean, fresh and slightly fruity. Orange gold pour. Taste is hoppy but not too bitter. Some orange and malt flavor with a slightly bitter finish. Basically tastes like a pale ale. Good

Lager malts, IPA hoppning. Good bite, aromatic hops, body and malt backing that is fullbodied lager. Creates a body that is a bit thin. But all in all an interesting beer!
