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.

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.

Growler shared thanks to largadeer on BA. Pours clear golden with a one-finger white head and good lacing. Aroma showcases loads of hops for the ABV. Citrusy and herbal, along with a touch of sweet malt. Flavor is solid for a session beer (in the true sense of the word) like this. Slightly sweet malt with a hop kick that is orangey and herbal, almost tea-like. Medium-light body with lots of resins attacking your palate. Overall, wow, this is an excellent a pale ale, especially at 3.5% ABV. I could session the hell out of this, and what do you know, I can even use the verb "session" and not offend the term’s tireless defenders when referring to this one.

Draft at the brewery. Pours opaque amber with a fizzy, bubbly white head. Feel is very light, but there is a strong, dry hop presence, with some light citrus and light resin. Light body and low carbonation. Light aroma of hops, lemon, and resin.

I’ve gotta give some points to Ballast for making a session IPA under four percent alcohol. It pours a nice clear orange color w/ a foamy white head that leaves patchy lace on the side of the glass. It has a great hop nose with lots of mandarin orange specifically along w/ maybe a bit of pine and some assorted and various fruity flavors some of which seem to come from an estery yeast well. This is a dry beer but there is some malt character which implies a bit of sweetness and brings out a slight cherry-like note from one of the six hops they used in this thing. It finishes w/ a firm, earthy bitterness. This is a nice beer something about the hop character to this strikes me as not quite dead on but I enjoy it quite a bit nonetheless.
