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.

dmac (5287) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2015
12oz can from Xroads. Poured a nice looking rusty orange with a large frothy eggshell colored head. Aroma/flavor of dry citrus rind, amber malts, grain, lemon, passion fruit and a slight touch of copper. Medium body with aggressive carbonation and a lingering dry bitterness. This is really good and then when you consider the ABV it’s like WOW!!!

12oz can in a tulip. Pours amber with a white head. Aroma of citrusy and floral and earthy hops, some pale and light caramel malts, and some dough. Flavor the same with some bitterness at the end. Average texture. A pretty good session IPA, but not the best beer ever.

cheap (5147) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2012 Had this on tap at the double wide. Clody light brown with a clean fresh somewhat sterile aroma. Quite strong in personality for a beer that is less than 4%. Flavorful hops for a light beer but it goes down rather easy. A little watery on the palate. Good amount of co2. Medium bitter linger for a finish.

Tap@bishops, gamla. Amber. Real nice fruity hoppy nose. Grapefruit, caramels, peaches. Soft nice body. Doesn’t feel watery, but light though. Hoppy lingering finish. Good session ipa. Understandably a bit thin in the middle, but very enjoyable still.

mansquito (5036) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 15, 2014
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.

Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2010
Pours a bright gold with a good-sized off-white head. The aroma is very nice, with some floral and citrus hops that aren’t too overpowering, but are well situated for the style. The taste has the floral and fruity character from the hops, a little bit of bitterness, and a little bit of bready malt. Light to medium-bodied with good carbonation. Not as enjoyable overall as some of the other Ballast Point offerings, but a very nice and sessionable hoppy brew. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 02-17-2010
