COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ten different malts and six different hops (Ahtanum, Cluster, and Spalt to name a few) combine to create this full-flavored, small beer. Even Keel features a silky malt backbone and a bright hop flavor and aroma that come from the late kettle additions and dry hopping with 1.5 pounds per barrel. Even more layers of flavor are created with fermentation being done by two strains of yeast. This session ale is herbaceous with additional citrus aromas of lemon and grapefruit. The orange to copper hue draws you in and the low alcohol volume keeps you coming back for more.

12 oz. can from Ales Unlimited. Hazy orange colored body with an off-white head. Nose of light floral hops and grapefruit. Taste of grapefruit citrus on a smooth malt base with a bit of cracker and cereal. Not piney. Excellent balance. Medium to light bodied with moderate carbonation and mild bitterness. Good flavor for the low ABV. Imminently drinkable.

tiong (4012) - Espoo, FINLAND - NOV 30, 2014
355ml can from Beer Culture, New York

Pours clear golden with a smooth white head. Aroma of pure fresh hops, grapefruit, lemon, pine and citrus. Taste is smooth, citrusy and piney with loads of fresh juicy hoppiness. Finish is watery, hoppy and fruity with some citrus and pine. Quaffable and hoppy session IPA, although a bit light bodied and watery.

jbruner (2485) - Athens, Georgia, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Pours a clear golden brown from the can with fluffy white head that leaves good lace. Aroma is great hoppy citrus notes that go into nice malty backbone. Taste follows, way more than the 3.8% abv would make you assume. Very nice beer, definitely will be drinking a few of these.

Tasty session ipa, albeit with maybe a touch too many hops. Some orange notes happen early on, but then the beer slides into a long, bitter finish that swallows much of the flavor. Itís still pretty flavorful for under 4%.

Prufrockstar (1130) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2014
12 oz can, picked up at the recommendation of OldMrCrow. Pours clear amber with rocky white head. Aroma: mostly onions. My wife says it smells piney and not at all like onions, so what do I know? Taste: Minimally sweet, moderately bitter end. Palate: lean and clean. Light body, average carbonation. Overall: Impressive session IPA, especially at 3.8% ABV.

Itís OK. I like Ballast Point, and this beer starts strong while cold, but as it warms it gets a bit odd. The aroma gets grassy and garlicy, as does the taste. But almost a taste of butter. I think itís more onion than butter, but itís still odd.

Pours clear gold with a medium white head. Aroma has mild sweet grassiness. Flavor Follows suit and adds an earthy tea note. Mouthfeel is medium and slightly resinous with a dry earthy finish.

Can at Antenna America. Nice. Pine, citrus, how many times can I write this about an ipa. Malty sweetness there, easy going good starter.

malrubius (1855) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Can from Meditrina. Clear copper with lasting head and some lace. Spicy bready aroma with some citrus. Mild biscuity fruity sweetness with assertive slightly harsh spicy hop bite made harsh by aggressive carbo. Light and a little watery and not covered up by excessive bitterness. Good.
