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 (966) - 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...

Draft pour at Flipdaddy’s pours dark gold with orange hue and thin white head. Nose sweet tropical fruit hop, sweet malt, sweeter character all around. Taste similar to nose, sweet and juicy, fairly smooth. Not bitter but tasty.

Mycket bra ipa. Rätt lukt, smak och allt men ändå inte bäst ändå. Något litet saknas, om än något väldigt litet!

superspak (3161) - Michigan, USA - APR 27, 2015
22 ounce bottle into lager glass, bottled on 2/2/2015. Pours lightly hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, herbal, floral, grass, honey, bread, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/tropical hops and moderate pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, herbal, floral, grass, honey, bread, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, melon, lemon/orange zest, pine, honey, bread, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Super clean lagering with zero yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice IPL style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Suttree (5396) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 27, 2015
Orange, slightly cloudy, and a smallish white head. Smells grassy, toasty, with some oaky aromas, as well. Taste is crisp, and kinda hoppy op front. Grassy, peppery hops, some biscuit flavors. I like this.

Fantomasus (269) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 24, 2015
Not my favorite Ballast Point product. Bland burnt gold with a flimsy head. Aroma: sour malt and honey? Almost unpleasant. Taste is fairly balanced. Nice clean palate that leans a little sticky. It’s okay.

Här finns inte mycket att hetsa upp sig över. Inget som får nerverna att knyta sig, vare sig av lycka eller besvikelse. Idén är kul, men utförandet mindre lyckat när den veka kroppen inte orkar bära upp ryggsäcken full med humle.

very nice aromas and flavours but they are overwhelmed by the heat of the alcohol. OK but incongruous.

SB Oskarshamn, flaska. Frukt Habanero (?) i aromen, läckert skum. Rund inte ipa humlad. För stark kanske . Helt OK långt bättre än Arboga 7,2 men den ribban ligger bra lågt.
