3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
On tap at Namtoms house bar shared with Jmgreenuk.
Thin white head. Hazy golden pour. Nice bitterness. Easy drinking. MarcoDL (4964) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2017
Bottle at tasting. Golden pour. Aroma of citrus and malt. Taste has citrus, peach, malt and that typical lager yeast sweetness. Meh. BlackHaddock (7346) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2017
On a flight at the Ballast Point place in Temecula, California on 9th Feb 2017. Golden amber pour, white head. Citrus notes ruled the nose and flavour, light piney hops almost getting through, but not quite making it. Refreshing enough, but too citrusy for me, even if it was in fact fairly sweet.

Can. Pours hazy straw with airy white head. Clear aroma of hops and grass, with estery notes. Bitter, hoppy flavour with sweet notes of fruit and malt and pastorianus notes Bitter and estery aftertaste. Good. MiP (15667) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2016 Can, 7.0%. Distinct grapefruit aroma, slightly perfumy. Hazy dark golden colour. Very big stable creamy white head. The flavour starts off with a good grapefruit note. Then comes a good bitterness along with a nice malt note. Late spicy hoppiness. Powerful but fairly clean. And tastes good, by the way.

I was a bit hesitant about drinking Fathom at Ballast Point since it’s fairly easy to get elsewhere, but having it fresh on tap was a treat. Clear gold-amber appearance. Hugely fresh and tropical nose. Mango, lemon, grapefruit, peach, tangerine, guava, and melon. Flavor showcases juicy, bittersweet fruitiness and some biscuit malt. It’s hop-forward but the malt provides enough of counter balance to make this crisp and satisfying. Dry, chewy, and resinous feel. One of the better IPL’s I’ve ever tried. kermis (13480) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 4, 2016

Bottle. Pours a clear dark gold color with a nice laced head. Malt and hops spring from the aroma. Slight dry flavor with some hops in the background. Very crisp with that IPA lingering. Solid brew. jiwookdo (74) - changwon, SOUTH KOREA - SEP 21, 2016
