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.

Great session beer with awesome citrus hop aromas. Average IPA color and light palate. Good flavor with fruit and hops up front and a very light malt backbone.

Pours a nice deep gold color with nice lacing and minimal head retention. Smells quite floral and hoppy. Tastes the same as it smells. If this had a higher ABV, it would be epic!

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.

phaleslu (7536) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 25, 2015
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

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.

From tap at the brewery. Pours clear and golden orage with a lacing white head. Dense hoppy and smooth aroma. Peachy and light grapefruity hops flavour. Smooth and crisp hoppy for flavour. Mild caramel malt base presence. Light crisp and flavourful finish. Lovely.

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.
