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.

On tap at Hop Scholar. Pours a clear copper with small frothy white head that lasts leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is strong citrus, grapefruit, hemp. Medium mouthfeel with nice grapefruit, resin, and light malt. Very good.

"Session" pale ale (SD session beer is what they call it). Solid aromatics, abounding in citrus. Big nose, semi sweet adequately bitter flavor. Pretty easy going.

Beautiful citrus grapefruit hop aroma. Taste is not as hoppy as the smell, but still there. Bitter hop finish. Citrus hops not in the flavor that much. Nice malty backbone. Very good session ipa. Very balanced and flavorful. For the price I would probably just get sculpin. Has sculpin hop aromas but the citrus hops don't come through in the flavor like in sculpin. But still a good session ipa. Maybe slightly too piney finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 13, 2006
Cask at O’Brien’s: Golden color with a light white foamy head. The nose is pronounced with that typical fresh ask hoppy note. The flavor is a bit on the dry side but has a nice chewy malt backbone to back up all the hops. The finish is tangy and lightly sweet with some honey flavors. A balanced APA that just loves being on cask.

RBSG08 tap. Amber pour with nice dim. head. Fruit, hop, citrus. There is an "airy" dryness to it which is very light and easy to drink with nice flavors.
