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.

hapjydeuce (975) - Carlsbad, California, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Bottled; color is light yellow with a golden center, lively carbonation produces a fine textured head with lacing. Aroma is grains/cereal, dry pine wood, apricot and orange and grapefruit citrus. Interesting flavor that has highlights of both cereal, biscuit and apple notes typical of lagering that transitions into a slap-in-the-face dose of peppery hops. Im really enjoying this one; the lack of the typical malty sweetness of a San Diego IPA leaves nothing but unadulterated hop flavor. A great deviation from the west coast IPA by a great brewery. I could drink this ALL DAY during a summer beach outing here in San Diego...

Nice foam and a golden color. The aroma is very suttle and almoast alcohol notes, but not bad in any way. The typical Ipa flavors are there and a nice ibu level. Balanced nicely.

Darwenus (647) - Virginia, USA - JUL 23, 2015
I don’t know if I’d have guessed that this was a lager if you’d served it to me blind. The hops are huge and up front in the aroma and flavor, the lager yeast that shows up on the tongue is very reserved. This beer pours a clear, golden color with a lot of suds. The aroma is slightly sweet, but mostly grassy/pine hops. That’s the flavor, too, but if you know to reach for it, you might pick up on a sweet, caramel lager character. Not bad, but not the best thing I’ve had from the brewery.

Can from Systembolaget. Clear bronze with strong white head. Sweet, citrusy and fruity. Caramel grapefruit and herbs with some lager yeast. Bitter with medium body and a long, IPAish after taste.

Holmen1 (3536) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2015
0,33 boks fra Systembolaget Vasagatan Stockholm, på hotellrommet og delt med Kitty: klar oransjegylden med hvitt skum. Overmodne citrusfrukter, brøddeig, karamell og en diskret alkohol i bakgrunnen både i aroma og smak, virkelig kjærkomment etter to svenske starkøl (hva er det med denne miserablwntradisjonen?). Ikke en apa, heller ikke en imp.pilsner, men en vellykket og meget lettdrikkelig hybrid.

BeerRenter76 (291) - Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2015
A clear rich burnt orange infused golden body with a great looking large fluffy white crown that settled slowly leaving alot of broken lace behind.Aromas were yeasty with overripe citrus fruits and a bit toasted bread,a hint of sweet booze as well.Flavors of somewhat sweet doughy bread with a big shot the overripe citrusy hops,again the yeast plays a big role.I really liked this hopped lager,it actually seems bigger than what it is.

mambossa (90) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2015
Bomber to tulip. Pours a clear, serious gold with clingy head. Nose is super floral upfront, fresh foliage, some juiciness and pine riding slimly under the radar. Crisp flavor of bright citrus, unique floral/sweet-leaf-dominated palate, clean finishing with light bitter and malt-sticky linger. Irrisitably balanced mouthfeel with low carbonation. Always have enjoyed this one a great deal.

355ml can from Systembolaget, Nyköping. Amber color, thick dense white head. Nice citrusy, piny, grassy, spicy hoppy aroma. Flavor continues the same, hoppy fruitiness, citrusy. Creamy palate, very quaffable. Could not tell this is a lager in any way. Fresh.
