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.

12 oz can, PDT June 2, a little over three weeks ago is all!- Pours clear old golden with a large white head that reduces leaving cobwebby lace and a small blanket. Aroma is hops man, hops, slightly dank, citrusy, pine, light caramel malts. The taste is extremely hop forward, vegetal which i don’t mind too much, sweet caramel malt. This is a balanced session IPA, aggressive hop profile, but the type of malt they used combats that. Not my favorite Session IPA, i usually prefer mine with lighter malts, and cleaner hops. Half way through my impressions of this beer only grew as i drank it, the strong vegetal notes have seemed to have faded leaving a nice very lemony citrus hop punch with some more or less clean malt. Originally i was going to give this a 3.6, but upping my overall by one and taste by one leaving a 3.8.

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.

12 oz. can from Root Cellar. Pours a clear somewhat burnt tea-like orange color with a couple fingers of off-white head. Notes of pine, grass, tea, tangerine, lemon, biscuit, caramel, orange zest. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth, thin, refreshing mouthfeel. Nothing blasts here, in that west coast IPA kind of way. It lives up to its way in the most satisfying manner.

(Can). A perfect choice for after sun at the beach in Lavalette. One of the best session IPA's I've had. All the flavor with smooth palate without the ABV. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice fresh 12oz can. Pours light golden with small white head. Nice fresh hop and citrus notes is the aroma. Flavor is citrusy hops, grapefruit, zest, light malts. Finishes with nice amount of bitterness. On par, if not better than FW Easy Jack. Good stuff.

bulldogops (2270) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 1, 2016
Rating #1509 17.03.2015 - 355mL Can from Palm Liquor. Killer tropical punch erupting from this foaming straw-coloured pour. Lemon rind, grapefruit, cookie dough. Palate is more citrus, decent bitterness for a session, and a fair malt backbone. Crushable beach beer.

Panzerfaust (790) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - JAN 31, 2016
355ml can from Club de Cervezas. Pours a beautiful clear orange color with a big white frothy head that diminishes slowly and leaves a nice cap. Aroma is intensely hoppy, fruity and citrusy. Huge notes of mandarines, tangerines, oranges and grapefruit upfront and backed up by hints of green herbs, grains, white bread and mellon nectar. Delicious. Taste is mostly bitter, expressive and showcasing sweet citrus fruitiness in harmony with herbal and grassy touches. Nice neutral bready backbone. Body does not feel that light, considering how punchy this one is. You would never believe it’s 3.8% abv. Medium carbonation, strong finish and aftertaste. Definitely an excellent session IPA showing remarkable craftsmanship.
