Fathom IPA

Ballast Point Brewing (Escondido, CA)
"Fathom IPA highlights our favorite characteristics of the west-coast IPA style. This crisp and clean brew features a touch of malt on the surface with an ocean of zesty orange and piney hops below. The result is a refreshing, easy drinking IPA with just the right amount of depth."

Tasty, not too complex, and not "too IPA". Some pine and herbal notes and a hint of citrus. Very quaffable ... but unremarkable. I put it in the everybody should like this category. At its price point ($8-$9 a 6-pack) it's perfect for taking to a cook-out or other such gathering.

6% ABV, 50 IBU
