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 from SoHo Organic Market, Elizabeth City, NC. Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Nice piney and grapefruit hop aroma with light caramel malts. The taste is bright and moderately bitter with piney, grassy, and citrus hops taking center stage. This is one of the first session IPAs I have tried that I could imagine myself wanting to drink several of. An impressive feat that this seems like an IPA and not a pale ale yet weighs in at only 3.8% ABV. Very nicely done.

12oz can from Hippo Beers. Amber brown, big foamy head. Woody hop aroma. Boiled sweet citrus hop flavour. Bitter hoppy aftertaste. Really well balanced good example of this style.

Easily the best session Ive had. Drought. Amber, decent head. Floral sweet on the nose, tropical fruit and hops throughout. I was amazed that they crammed so much into 3.8%... Nothing seemed subdued.

If I lived here, this would be my beer of choice. Very nice hop aroma with a bit of malt. Citrus and pine stand out. The flavor is very bitter with a big hop hit. The finish is very dry and refreshing. This is one you can have several of and still stand up. Excellent.

can. lightly hazy with a dusting of sediment under medium sized, creamy, white head. citrus peel, lime, white grapefruit aroma. nice limey bitterness with hints of bitter pith. medium bodied that has a bigger palate than you would expect for low abv.

Really packs in a good west coast hoppy pine and citrus aroma for only 3.8%. Im a sucker for session IPAs because they taste great and Ive learned over the years that many, if not most situations I dont want a 7-10% beer but I always want some flavor. I can definitely see me picking up some more next summer for going up north and hanging out on the boat during the day. Still not my favorite session IPA but very good.

Oh man, this is pretty close to the perfect session IPA for me. Pours orange with a fluffy off-white head. Massive tangerine aroma with a bit of pineapple and something else tropical--lychee? A bit of crackery malt on the back. Good citrus hop flavors (I dont get any of the onion that Prufrock does, and usually Im super sensitive to onion/garlic). Super crushable. At 3.8 ABV, one can crush away. I love it. I hope I can find a regular source.

tl;dr summary: Perfect ISA.

BOD 042/15. Pours a clear amber with a hint of garnet. Outstanding head volume and retention, world class lacing. World class nose of blended hops. Citrus (grapefruit, lemon), tropical (mango, pineapple) and pine all make an appearance over a subtle biscuit. Light medium body that has a smooth texture and a bit of oiliness. Slightly above normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a nice burst in the finish. The outstanding flavor profile is intense and hop flavor forward, slightly complex and fairly balanced. It begins with hop flavors that never relinquish the forefront. The flavors follow the nose with a blended hop profile that begins with tropical, flows to citrus and shifts to grapefruit and pine in the middle. The middle is mildly bitter over a hint of biscuit. The finish is slightly dry and a rind bitterness lingers. A superb session beer and possibly the ultimate lawnmower beer.

Can poured to pint glass. Sweet and fragrant aroma. Juicy hops bite, citric sweetness. This does not taste like a session beer, its become my new favorite low abv beer.
