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.

Dogbrick (9611) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2012
Sample at GABF 10/11/2012, thanks to Bluemeow76 for assistance with note-taking. Pale amber color with a thin white head and spotty lacing. Aroma of citrus and hops. Light-bodied and effervescent with flavors of grassy hops, citrus and malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

crossovert (9527) - Illinois, USA - APR 22, 2015
355ml can. Impressive deep gold color, foamy white head. Aroma is melon, fuzzy peach, hibiscus, dank, tangerine, and pretzel. Flavor is dry and almost savory in the finish with a pretzel-like malt quality. Some herbal notes int eh flavor, bone dry pine finish. Interesting session ipa, pretty much just malt and bitterness in the flavor but a complex aroma.

GT2 (9408) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 12, 2010
Tap at Toronado SD. Poured a hazy orange with a thin white head. Good lace sticking around despite the mediocre tap pour. Aroma is lemony, dank weed with massive orange peel oil and perfume. Taste is insanely perfumey and oily bitter then moves to chewy kumquat and curacao. Just not quite enough body to be an IPA- more of an APA. But now I’m reading 3.5% abv! Holy $#%@. This is one hilarious mild ale that will destroy your face.

Scopey (9372) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2015
Can from bottle shop. It pours deep orange-copper with a decent white head. The nose is bitter-sweet, stewed orange, peach, muffin, toasty sugars, mild caramel and marmalade. The taste is crisp, bitter, big grapefruit hit, lemon, pine needles, light metallic twang, caramel, pepper, toasty grass and resin with a dry finish. Light-medium body and moderate, prickly carbonation. Decent session gear.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2008
Tap at the tasting room. Very pale straw-coloured beer. Aroma is lightly citrusy with a light orange peel flavour. A little bit of honeyish sweetness to the malts with a lingering fruity flavour on the back. Easy to knock back... a pretty solid session beer.

rosenbergh (8690) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 29, 2014
12 oz can. (Bruisin Ales) Asheville, NC.
Clear golden amber colour with a small off-white head. Bitterness, piney and resiny hops and malt in the aroma. The flavour is piney hops, moderate bitterness and malt. Very balanced and surprisingly rich for a 3.8% brew.

DrSilverworm (8686) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Pint on tap at Dutch’s. Very convincing, is my initial impression. Good Moderate to bigger bitter taste, minimal sweet. Mostly clear red orange color. Nice Thin off white head, with good retention. Good bits and splotches of lace. Nice piney aroma, some orange citrus, caramel biscuity malts. Lightly toasty. Medium, maybe slightly lighter body. Very satisfying, convincing session IPA.

jercraigs (8666) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2015
2015-08-14. Dark orange body with a small beige head. 3+ Aroma is hoppy, lots of leafy green hop character. Flavour is moderately bitter, some green hops and malty base. Average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Didn’t really do it for me. Can at Campground Brewdown.

MartinT (8619) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2012
My Bottom Line :
Mildly honeyed and toasted malts garnish this session APA’s citrusy hop resins for lean quenching experience.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A slice of foam tops the misty bronze.
-The wooden hop bitterness is leveled with the rest of the flavor profile’s moderate intensity.
-The mouthfeel is slender, but never thin.
-The nose could be brighter. This smells (and tastes) like a second running brew...

On tap at The Ginger Man, NYC.

DSG (8575) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 16, 2015
[2/20/15] Draught at Ballast Point Old Grove in San Diego. Hazy golden-orange. Aroma of nice citric and slightly tropical hops. Rather dry flavor with fruity hops. Quite light-bodied. Nice and refreshing.
