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 nice clear gold with massive, pillowy off-white head that lasts forever and leaves good lacing. Aroma is balanced hops, primarily citrus, plenty of pine, some floral and herbal to complement. Taste is very full-flavored for a low ABV beer. Stays light and citrusy with hints of lemon and lime, adding a smooth malt backbone that avoids the cereal, grainy, corny flavors that other light beers have. Lots of flavor here. I’d like to try this against Stone’s Go To IPA on a hot summer day. This would be a good one - maybe best ice cold if slamming a few on a hot day.

You know what is better than zombie dust? This session ipa. Very similar in flavor but slightly less alcohol. Citrusy and hippy and extremely crushable. Had a can pour at home. Bitter finish. Pours orange il with a hick white head ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz can from Xroads. Poured a nice looking rusty orange with a large frothy eggshell colored head. Aroma/flavor of dry citrus rind, amber malts, grain, lemon, passion fruit and a slight touch of copper. Medium body with aggressive carbonation and a lingering dry bitterness. This is really good and then when you consider the ABV it’s like WOW!!!

All flavors are combined in a very harmonic way. Enjoyed, pity, I do not have this piece in a Key KEG in my cellar.

Can from a 6 pack bought a corner Super America gas station at 38th and Park in South Minneapolis next to the usual MGD and Mickeys - woohoo for quality microbrew bought at MN gas stations! This is very new here. Pours beautiful copper with light foam leaving a fair trail of lacing. Nose is big citrus hops, a little hop resin backed by caramel malt. Flavor is very rich considering the abv - has very mildly sweet and bready caramel malt , great soft texture in the malts - very well thought out malt bill here - followed by a cascade of citrus hop flavors in the finish and lingering resiny bitterness. Wow - as long as my corner SA keeps carrying this it’s like my local bitter at the corner pub.

Perfect alcohol content for a beer I want to pound a ton of. Lots of juicy fruit flavors. Pineapple mango grapefruit citrus on the finish. Decent body and flavor. Solid. Maybe the best session I have ever had.

Aroma is pine, tropical fruit, really a lot of scent. Appearance is golden amber, white head. Taste is very piny, a small bit of tropical fruit, some malt. Mouthfeel is light, decent carbonation. Overall, this is a very good session.
