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.

BlackHaddock (6978) - 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.

MiP (15453) - Snderborg, 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 its 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. Its 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 IPLs Ive ever tried.

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.
