A sweeter take on an award-winning IPL
Our Orange Vanilla Fathom India-Style Pale Lager continues our quest for exploration. The piney and citrus hop aromas of our India-Style Pale Lager combine with sweet orange and creamy vanilla - while staying true to classic lagering techniques. Brewed with a touch of nostalgia, it may remind you of a childhood treat, but this one is just for adults.

Looks great, smells good but it taste like they bought the cheap generic creamsicles and stuck them in a great IPA? Doesn't work for me.

Was worried it would be too sweet but was extremely surprised that it wasn't. Very smooth and all too easy to drink more than one. Exceeded my expectations.

650 ml bottle.

Pours orange gold, impressive head of foam, lacing is also good.

I smell orange blossoms, vanilla, overall, a nose that suggests some bitterness.

Cream soda and orange blossoms taste, pretty bitter, finishes with more orange than vanilla, which is good for me.

Good mouthfeel, good different Lager.

Good look and smell
Feel is dry yet smooth with smooth vanilla texture
Taste has orange zest and mild malt sweetness with vanilla in finish
Overall a pretty good cream without a ton of adjunct to mess with the base
