Poured into a standard pint, this is a medium amber colored beer with a modest head. The nose offers plenty of hops, as expected, but also a nice clean malt aroma. The flavor mirrors this, with a great balance of toasty malt and sharp, bitter hoppiness. Very drinkable hoppy malty lager, like a hoppy octoberfest!

Purchased this at BEVMO in a 22oz bomber and am anxious to try it. Poured a straw gold with a decent head. The aroma is a combo of resinous hops and sweet malt. The taste is a replica of the nose, but the flavors are a bit more intense than the aroma would suggest--the piney hops flavor was most prominent. I was pleasantly surprised that there was a good malt character to the brew. The finish, as typical with lagers, was very clean. Overall, it was a flavorful, well-balanced brew. I wish I could find a six-pack!

New to this style and wasn't expecting to like this...
Slight hoppiness with no maltiness; admittedly, I'm not a fan of overly strong / present malts. Prefer the hops... and Fathom doesn't disappoint. Slight sweetness that continued throughout the 22 oz (drank from a bomber).
Again, not sure if the IPL style is a common offering; however, highly recommend those who like IPAs / Pale Ales seek this out. Ballast Point doesn't disappoint (disclaimer: biased towards SD beers)
