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.

Can. Pale amber with an inch of loosish white head that sticks around. Aroma of grapefruit, passionfruit, peach, crackers. 7 Light bodied, really nothing in the middle. A little sweetness with crackers and slight toast. A hint of butterscotch - maybe an attempt to fill things out a bit? Light tropical notes, more grapefruit and some lemon. Dry with moderate bitterness at the end. Sure, the alcohol is lowish but I couldnít drink several pints of this. OK dust-cutter.

(Sight - 3.63) Smelled sharp Citra notes up front, mainly grapefruit and nectarine rind. Also caramel, peppery spices, floral, tropical, light mango, rye and buttery malts late. (Smell - (Smell - 4.25) Taste was much less flavorful than the nose, unfortunately. Got Citra, rye, iced tea, floral, grapefruit zest, caramel, lemon, light pine and mango rind. (Taste - 3.50) Light body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt finish. (Feel - 3.50) This was just an OK session ale.

nuplastikk (5071) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 12, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2015 12oz can. $9.99 six pack. A great example of the style. First of all it is 3.8%, whereas most session IPAs tend to just sneak under 5.0%. Whatever...this is excellent either way. Solid, steady hop bill. Mellow citrus grapefruit tones fitting for the style. The malt has a little depth to it to, not the seltzer feel. Solid offering.

yngwie (15381) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 12, 2015
Can. A hazy, golden beer topped by a small, dense, off-white head. Itís quite malty on the nose, bready and lightly caramel-.ish, but thereís also a nice hoppyness, with pine cones, grapefruit and a generic citrus touch. Itís medium bodied, quite dry and with a tad too much carbonation. Quite bitter, with grapefruit, pine cones and some citrus peel. Lasting bitter, grapefruity finish. A bit on the malty side this one, but it sure ainít a bad one. 150612
