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.

Scottishchris (500) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 15, 2015
Can from bottledog Edinburgh. Copper orange with small white head. Malty citrus and caramel hop nose, really fresh. Medium light body, soft fizz. More malts but with fairly hefty bitterness. Stoned fruit and lemon. Long bitter finish. Smells amazing, not quite as tropical as the bravertown neck oil for instance.

DuffMan (8318) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 14, 2015
Bottle. Medium golden hue with an average white head. Green leafy hop character, pale malts, assertive bitterness. Lots of character for such a low ABV, but the bitterness is a bit out of balance.

danlo (1839) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2015
12 fl oz can from Brewdog online store. Orange gold amber colour, foamy white head and aroma of tropical fruits, citrus, hoppy. Taste is malt caramel, some biscuit, with peach and floral citrus grapefruit hop bitterness. Thin mouthfeel, light bodied, soft carbonation, dry tangy bitter finish. Nicely drinkable session IPA.

Habanero (3430) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2015
Canned. Pours clear deep golden with an average off-white head. Aroma of sharp citrus, grapefruit, spicy and floral hops. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and decent bitter. Light to medium bodied, watery texture and soft carbonation. A nice SIPA indeed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

gegwilson (2379) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2015
Can in the Junkyard, Nottingham. Amber with a frothy white head. Nice pine hop aroma. The taste is very hoppy with loads of pine. Some caramel too. Really refreshing and easy to drink. Excellent.

Really enjoyed this low-alcohol, full-flavored hop bomb. Not long ago, you really couldn’t find "small beer" that was packing this much flavor, but Ballast really came through on this one! Taste like an assertive IPA. Nice job. Multi 12oz can experience.

Clear in appearance. Dark copper in color. Thick, frothy head. Good lacing. Piney and citrusy notes. Also some what i can only think of as clover in the aroma. Very watery texture. Low carbonation. Not much of a hoppy taste at all. I want the hoppy if i am getting a IPA. Starts out dry and finishes watery. I guess that is why they call it a session IPA. No kick to it at all.

Bottle. Good for what it is: a light, watery IPA with some citrus hints. Have one after you mow the lawn.

Great tasting beer in my favorite category. Balanced hop flavor. Easy to drink and enjoy with a meal
