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.

355ml bottle pours a copper color with a finger of white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus and pine with some caramel notes. Taste is a citrus and pine hop bitterness with a herbal note and a caramel malty sweetness. Light grainy mouth feel. Light bodied with good carbonation. Overall, this is a nicely crafted ale that is balanced and tasty. recommended.

Pours dark amber brown with sparse white foam. The nose shows a lot of clean round malts/big notes of biscuit with a subtle notes of grapefruit. The palate shows a lot of juicy but unripe, grapefruit pith (sharp & tart), grapefruit bitterness and spicy zestiness on the finish but clean malts lingering on the end.

Draft at Klobys. Light copper with white head. Nice hop nose with pine resin and citrus. Much more pine with some dank notes on palate... A bit thin in mouthfeel.

chinchill (3888) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 3, 2015
12 oz can served in a lager glass. Good looking beer with a light copper colored body topped by a semi-durable, off-white head. Exceptional lacing. The herbal-grassy-citrus hop mix is not exactly what I prefer, but works quite well anyway and has excellent balance with the malt load. O: a flavorful ale with less than 4% ABV, this is a true and exemplary "session IPA"

patricks110 (2376) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 1, 2015
Super easy going with moderate hop bite, light bitterness and resin presence. A nice low alcohol brew. I could drink all of these! Pours a bright golden straw with a hue of orange. The nose is fruity, fresh, and citrus heavy. Light malts, honey sweetness, mild caramel. Nice well balanced ISA

biirusaikou (2305) - - SEP 1, 2015
Taster at AEON Liquor. Quite hoppy, leaning towards herbal and piney flavors with a light caramel edge, bitter finish. Decent session IPA even though I like them more fruity than bitter.

AWISLguy (2284) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 31, 2015
Bottle from Breeze Thru. A golden orange, very clear, pour, with a white head leaving some streaky lacing Aroma has a nice piney citrus boost, with some lemon and light caramel. Taste is of tangy pine, grapefruit, nice caramelly malt, and some chewy resin. Medium bodied. Little alcohol presence. Finishes lightly bittersweet. Well blended, but light. Solid for style, well balanced. 14
