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.

travita (4805) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 17, 2015
Copper colored beer from a can. Mostly clear with a cream colored head. The smell is malty, caramel, pine, fruit, and good. The taste is pine, bitterness, some sharpness, fruit, good. Good overall tiny bit harsh that leads to a slight off balance.

Marheb (4578) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Un nez splendide aussi puissant que leur ipa. Une charge juteuse plus qu’intéressante, amertume moyenne, croustillance extrême avec un certain sucre résiduel qui disparait totalement au final.

kidmartinek (4577) - austin, Texas, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Big hop aroma. All kinds of citrus going on. Full copper color. White head settles to a thick ring. Flavor is a hop bomb with citrus and soda.

luttonm (4485) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Draft at The Beer Authority, Seattle. Bubbly head on more clear dark gold. Lighter body of course, much more like an amber-malt pale. Some hop, crisp certainly, but overall vacant malts. Very clean, some bittering on finish. Nice enough.

superspak (4477) - Michigan, USA - FEB 25, 2016
12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 11/19/2015. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy deep orange/amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, honey, light caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of bright citrus/tropical hops and light-moderate bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, honey, light caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine/citrus rind/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, melon, lemon/orange peel, pine, honey, toasted bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/pine hops and light-moderate bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness and lighter body that increases through the glass. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp/sticky/resinous, and lightly creamy/grainy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 3.8%. Overall this is a very nice Session IPA style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/pine hops and light-moderate bready malt flavors; and very smooth, crisp, and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
