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.

ABR 2014. Very sessionable, just as they describe. I was not aware that the alcohol was so low. Sweet malt and citrus flavors from the hops.

Can. Bright orange. Grassy citrus hops , light, crisp, refreshing. Mouthfeel is a little too thin and watery. This isnít the greatest session ipa but, I could definitely see drinking a bunch of these on a summer day. Pretty good

Bottle. Dark clear gold with thin white head. Aroma is citrusy hops. Taste follows and adds a tea like quality. Thin mouthfeel, moderate carb and quick finish. Ok.

Tap@bishops, gamla. Amber. Real nice fruity hoppy nose. Grapefruit, caramels, peaches. Soft nice body. Doesnít feel watery, but light though. Hoppy lingering finish. Good session ipa. Understandably a bit thin in the middle, but very enjoyable still.

Tap@ bishops arms, gamla stan, Stockholm. Mahogany color, thick white head. Citrusy fruity hoppy aroma, some sweetness, floral notes. Flavor has grapefruit, blood orange, juicy as hell. Lovely session IPA. Could drink this every day. More please.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2014 Sampled at ABR. Clear orange pour. Mild session IPA. Citrus. Brilliantly crafted in its style. Liked this one.

J_man (773) - Tustin, California, USA - SEP 23, 2014
12 oz. can. Nice grassy/floral/pine hop aroma from the pour. Clear medium yellow with a frothy white head. Thereís a bit of herbal grassiness along with a grapefruit citrus and pith hop bitterness in the flavor. Nice smooth biscuity malt body to compliment but not overpower the bitter bite. The body is a bit watery but thatís probably the curse of a lighter session beer. Leaves behind a nice spicy bitterness with a bit of creamy, woody malt. Nice session IPA.

New Beer Distributors, NYC can ($2): Pours light copper with a frothy white head. Aroma is grapefruit, lemon, and pine with light malt backbone. Taste is lightly bitter hops. Body is a little on the watery side. This is very light even for this characteristically light style. Refreshing and even a little sweet. It is kind of what I was looking for.

I was disappointed with this one. Had a tuna fishing trip out of San Diego, but this just seemed too watered down surprisingly, even for the "style" of session IPA. I mean, it did taste like a light IPA as opposed to an American pale, but the flavor just didnít work for me.
