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.

The aroma is fresh malted barley, breakfast cereal, flowery hops, some grass, and a bit of caramel. The mouthfeel is medium-thin, with a slightly firm body and medium carbonation. The taste is moderately bitter, with a nice cerealy sweetness and a slight alcohol prickle. Nice and drinkable.

September 6th, 2013 - As of June, 2015, Ballast Point’s incredible label art for Fathom adorns the wall of the tasting room near Old Town, San Diego. But back during the review, I believe this was still just paper on bottle, showing off a fresh and crisp beer for San Diego late Fall drinking. The body is deep and gold, giving off a fresh and hoppy aroma. The flavor is sweet and surprisingly tangy, with some lemon and orange. Hops and a fresh, clean "pils" taste still define the body, and overall I’m feeling ready for another round of late September sweating.

355 ml can. Clear amber colour, thin white head. Fruity aroma with grass, pine and bready malt. The flavour is malty, with caramel and citrus notes, and a resiny, grassy-hoppy finish.

jdjuice (448) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - JUN 13, 2015
Aroma is a nice combo of piney hops and pilsner-y hops, nice and refreshing. Pours yellow-gold with soapy white head. A bit thick for a lager, kind of sweet that changes into dryness that kind of clashes with the piney hops. I wonder what it would be like if they put a ton of Saaz in. Really easy to drink though, dangerous for 7%.

Growler from growler guys pours light, clear gold. Aroma is citrus and pine. Taste is moderately bitter with pine and grapefruit. Lager yeast makes this kinda dry and refreshing. Good summer beer.

Tölkki @ Systembolaget. Kaatuu lasiin oranssinkultaisena ja kirkkaana, noin kahden sormen paksuisen vaahdon suojaamana. Tuoksussa on ruohoista ja sitruksista humalaa, kipsiä ja hiven viljaisuutta. Maussa ruoho, sitrus ja viljaisuus jatkuu, nyt humalointiin sekoittuu myös puumaisia elementtejä. Suutuntuma on makeahko ja etenkin lopussa hieman katkera, alkoholikin tuntuu hieman. Pettymys, panimon huomioon ottaen, hieman viinainen vahva lager, joka on jenkkihumaloitu, ei paljon muuta.
