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.

At BPB. Hazed yellow orange pour with gooey lace. Sweet malt aorma backed by solid hops. Very hoppy but good malt balance. A lemony hard bitter finish (nice) just a bit fizzy with medium body. Another very refreshing drinker that has a lot to offer.

Draft. Golden pour with frothy white head. Tropical fruit, grapefruit, grassy fresh hop tones. Flavor lacks any strength of hop flavor, letdown on flavor.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 31, 2013
On tap at Milltown, Carrboro. Nicely complex and flavorful APA, with a handsome orange pour, a leafy and aromatic nose, and a pleasingly bitter profile. Some fruit notes and substantial malts in there for balance and body. Admirable session brew.

bhensonb (12012) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours copper with a creamy white head. Light citrus/piney aroma. Med body. Flavor seems moderate pine over caramel. It is finishing nicely bitter. Excellent for a 3.8% ale.

DrSilverworm (7958) - 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.

Tmoney99 (11582) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 5, 2014
Tap sample. Poured clear golden color with an average to large frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate citrus hop and earthy aroma. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Solid brew.

Kroney (189) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Can poured into a pint glass. Pours dark orange with a tan head. Aroma is mostly citrus. Taste is unique for an IPA... mostly caramel and brown sugar sweetness. Smells like an IPA but drinks like an Irish red ale. Not bad, but not what I’d expect from a session IPA.
