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.

Pours a bright gold with a good-sized off-white head. The aroma is very nice, with some floral and citrus hops that aren’t too overpowering, but are well situated for the style. The taste has the floral and fruity character from the hops, a little bit of bitterness, and a little bit of bready malt. Light to medium-bodied with good carbonation. Not as enjoyable overall as some of the other Ballast Point offerings, but a very nice and sessionable hoppy brew. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 02-17-2010

On draft at Capones. Pours a cloudy light orange yellow gold with a frosty medium sized white head. Aroma of grapefruit, bitter hops and light floral hints. Taste is much the same as the aroma. Has a perfumy aftertaste. Hoppy.

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.

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.

Un nez splendide aussi puissant que leur ipa. Une charge juteuse plus qu’intéressante, amertume moyenne, croustillance extrême avec un certain sucre résiduel qui disparait totalement au final.

UPDATED: MAY 7, 2006 Hell yeah. I like this stuff. The first time I had it was at O’Briens and that followed a strong belgian, so I don’t think those were the right conditions to accurately come to judgement. Had some down at the brewmart today and it was delicious. How do you get such a big body out of a beer with such little alcohol. Trade secrets! Anyway, I’d drink this stuff religiously if they would bottle it. It’s like a safe version of North Star.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 2, 2008
Draft at RBSG. Pours a golden amber with a dissipating white head. Great floral hop aroma. Light to medium bodied. Flavor of pale malts and dry biscuit, countered by a nice aggressive citrus and spicy bitterness. Finish is grassy, semi dry and hoppy. Great concept and great beer.

Draft at sb. Pours a crystal cear medium amber with a loose whitish head. Big sweet tangy nose, showing pineapple and grapefruit. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel, pineapple, and grapefruit mid palate. Beautiful light body and very clean. Nice light finish.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2014 12 oz can. Pours a copper color with a small off-white head that slowly fades to a fine film. The aroma is fairly strong and features grapefruit and lemons. The taste is more lemons and grapefruit set in a biscuit malt base. The palate is just bit thinner that I would prefer and the carbonation is lively. Finishes medium in duration and leaves a citrus aftertaste. Overall: First rate Session IPA.
