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.

651 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, we’ll retained ivory head, with some lacing, over a clear medium amber (SRM 12) body......nose is light pine, slight citrus from the hops, cereal, light toffee/caramel from the malts.......taste is light toasted malts, with cereal, biscuit tones, honey tones, along with pine, light citrus from the hops leading to a moderately bitter but lingering, clean finish.....mouth feel, body light medium, slightly sticky, alcohol hidden, light clean acid on the finish. This is a slightly light take on an IPA. It is nicely balanced, is very clean, but lacks a bit of the malt depth found in the best of this very broad style. I would suggest a slight increase in the number of malts used. What would this be like with a bit of rye? BJC P 8/3/15/5/7

22oz bottle. lively clear pale orange with a large, whipped white head. peach, pale malt, marshmallow aroma. a lager smoothness with a clean bittering and long hoppy finish. the body seems slightly more full with the lager yeast. i like the bitterness level.

Very good beer. Nice citrus pine flavors in a nice crisp and refreshing lager.

canary dog (655) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Taste is predominantly citrusy hops and caramel malts; which concludes in a clean, cold lager-like finish. Very drinkable, but towards the end of the session it just reminded me of any other American IPA, and I kind of had forgotten that I was actually drinking a lager.

jbruner (2136) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Pours a clear gold on tap with bubbly white cap of head. Aroma is clean and fruity, sweet citrus. Taste follows with a hint of biscuit on the back end. Easy to drink with the crisp lager finish. Impressive for the style, but not sure I can hop on this train yet.

deyholla (6486) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Sampled at the 2014 Untapped festival in Fort Worth. Pours a clear gold with a slight orange hue and a white head htat dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a really nice citrus pine combination with resin underlying and a touch of earthy grain. Flavor has a really nice pine and citrus combination as well as grapefruit coming through.

kindacold (210) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAR 8, 2014
This is a great twist! Pours from the tapas nice golden amber with a lacy head that dissipates somewhat quickly. Smells floral and citrusy with pine notes. Tastes of grapefruit, pith, a bit of salt, and some bell pepper. Finishes cleaner than most IPAs, with only a little stickiness and a creamy citrus aftertaste.

kidmartinek (3508) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Brilliant gold beer with a copper tint and a giant foamy white head. Smells malty. Tastes mostly so as well with the hops in the background. Might as well be a 4.2% English mild crossed with a Czech pils and a bushel of hops thrown in dry. A very complicated beer.
