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.

Tasting at the ever gracious ChrisO’s. Thanks to our host for this winner. Clear pale gold beer, good fluffy white head. Palate is very light and airy. Superfine carbonation. Very light malt base, slightly sweet. Little floralness. Hops are a nice combo of mild skunk, resinous orange and mild tropical fruits. Light airy finish. Tasty and super drinkable.

Bärnstensfärgad med vitt skum. Den har en mycket angenäm arom, påminner något om parfym. Smakar mycket humle men man kan ändå känna malten och det avslutad med en tydlig härlig beska.

minutemat (1653) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2014
Bottle @ Chriso May 14 tasting. Big juicy IPA with big juicy aroma, fresh, zesty and full of life. Bitter grapefruit, orange peel and lime batter you before a dry finish. Lovely stuff.

jmacraider (4) - - JUN 2, 2014 does not count
The aroma coming through is pine and floral. The 7% alcohol is present, but not over powering. The hops are there to enjoy, but balanced and smooth. Full on the palate with a nice lingering citrus finish. Another good beer from ballast.

maneliquor (3112) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 27, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2014 Tap at Young & Jackson’s. Pours bright and vibrant orange with a small, firm white cap on top. Nose is full of pine and big tropical fruits - pineapple, mango and lychee. Kind of like a slightly toned down Sculpin with a heavier base to it. Lager yeast goes well with the huge amount of hops. Plenty tropical and piney with typical sweet lager yeast which keeps it all in check. a solid drop

Cask from BP Restaurant. Pours clear golden with some foamy head and chunky lacing. Nose is pine and citrus fruit. Notes of pine, fruit, maybe hint of kiwi. Taste was medium sweet, light/medium bitter. Medium body silky, low to medium carbonation. Nice beer.

Scopey (6865) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle thanks to Chriso. It pours clear golden with a small white head. The nose is fresh, floral, lemony sherbet, candied orange peel and juicy peach. The taste is crisp, bitter, clean, dough, bitter-sweet feel, sherbet, florals, light grain, lemon, lime and orange peel with a dry, crisp finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Crisp and crushable. Very nice.

I could be wrong about this, It wouldn’t be the first time. I found this to have a hoppy baseline through it, and it was all of its 70 IBU, the over layer of oranges and sweetness balances it well and makes this very drinkable. Is it clever, yes it is. Is it a style that has legs and others will follow? I don’t think so. It drinks well and has many interesting things about it that means you finish the beer and wonder how that happened, and that’s a good thing, except that it’s a bad thing too.
