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.

Draught. Pours a very clear amber color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose is nicely floral with some slight pine and slight pepper elements to it; awesome! Taste is light and clean, very fresh, and not too bitter. Easy drink.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 29, 2008
On tap at Ballast Point during the RBSG Pub Crawl Tour on 08/01/2008. Slightly hazy golden body with a medium creamy off-white head. Big floral hoppy aroma. Mildly grassy and floral hop flavor. Medium light body with moderate carbonation.

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.

mansquito (3578) - 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.

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.

HonkeyBra (3528) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUL 10, 2014
12 oz. can. Pours an orangish amber with a big ol eggshell colored head. Aroma of pine, herbal notes, grass, and citrus hops. Flavor is herbal and pine bitterness, mild caramel sweetness. Light bodied with zippy carbonation. Finishes long and hoppy. Pretty nice.

bytemesis (3520) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Can. Pours clear orange, large puffy off-white head, dissipates slowly, nice residual lacing. Aroma is perfume, pine, grapefruit, herbal. Flavor follows, light sweet and light bitter, a bit buttery, lots of perfumy hop presence. Light body, pretty solid beer for <4%.

Cybercat (3514) - Georgia, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Comes out of the tap a beautiful golden Amber - not much head, but that is an artifact of the pour. Aroma is SERIOUSLY hoppy - like getting a good whiff of fresh-cut pine, evergreem and woody, plus fruity hints. Bold flavor makes you feel as though you’re drinking a liquid pine tree. This is a brewski for serious hop fans! Fruity and malty hints come through as well. Texture is firm and very lively and sassy, leaving a woody evergreen finish. Get on an even keel if hops are your bag!

joeneugs (3497) - Livermore, California, USA - DEC 12, 2014
12 oz. can. It pours a deep golden color with a foamy off white head. The aroma is very floral, leafy and citrusy with mild hints of caramel in the background but very hop forward. The flavor has more leafy, herbal, floral hop notes with some grapefruit and lightly toasted caramel. The bitterness is a little strong in the finish, and it has a little more caramel than I would like, but the hop character is up front and center. The strong bitterness gives keeps it dry in the finish as well. Overall, pretty nice, but I would’ve liked less specialty malt and less bitterness.

Hermod (3459) - Vantaa, FINLAND - SEP 28, 2014
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.
