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.

ACHops (1355) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 7, 2013
On tap @ Chuck’s 85th. Pours pale yellow golden with thin white head. Aroma is crisp pale malt and a hint of fresh hops. Taste is clean thin earthy malt with a solid bitter floral hop finish. The IPL style is new to me, but exactly what it sounds like: light lager malt with big IPA hops. Light bodied but drinkable. I won’t give up my Sculpin anytime soon, but this is a fun experiment.
