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.

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.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - DEC 10, 2007
Tap @ Ballast Point. Poured a mostly clear golden color with an off-white head. The aroma was citrusy and hop forward. Citrus flavor that was light with a semi-sweet malt base. Bitter dry finish with a light body.

joeneugs (4220) - 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.

ClarkVV (4219) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 8, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2015 Draught at Brava, 7/5/15
Medium-copper with lighter blonde tints and a large, well-retained white head.
Plenty of citrus and light tropical fruitiness in the nose is clean, as allows from these guys and leads to light traces of biscuits and dry caramel. Big notes of grapefruit, softer meyer lemon-like juiciness and touches of pine and mango round it out. No alcohol, obviously and quite clean and bright (and low on resin).
The flavor is amazingly full, robust and deliciously hoppy without being overdone. Not something one can just chug too easily, as there is a good deal of bitterness. Quite impressive they’ve got this much flavor and body in to a beer of this size. I was generally treating this as a sipper, not because it was too bitter/resinous or anything, but because each mouthful was quite enjoyable and the flavor lingered nicely. May actually buy a six pack of this soon.

boFNjackson (4191) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Tap... Poured copper/amber-orange with a thin, white-ish head. Cracker-like and bready malts balanced a faint hop character. Like it says, it’s session ale. Very drinkabale, paired well with all sorts of food too. Hops were earth and grassy, but too floral or citrusy.

maxwelldeux (4164) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - AUG 30, 2014
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.

mansquito (4117) - 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.

Had this on draft at sheffields. Orange cloudy pour with creamy white head. Light honey pine and slightly hoppy taste. Good for a session IPA
