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)

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served from 22 oz bottle poured to a pint glass

A: Goldenrod/dark yellow with 3/4" white foamy head. Lots of tiny carbonation bubbles
S: Light hop aroma with slight biscuit smell
T: Hops produce bitter taste and aftertaste, but not too bitter. Notes of citrus - mainly grapefruit and pine
M: Crisp and clean as is typical with a lager
O: A really good beer. A lager with a west coast IPA taste. Nicely hopped but not overpowering. I'll have another...

Clear golden colour with a moderate fluffy off white head.

Moderately malty and smooth. Slight hop aroma.

Resinous hop character with light malt. Quite sharp but in a good way.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. Good.

A crisp, clean strong lager. Nicely hoppy.

Serving type: on-tap
