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.

tap. aroma of clean dank citrusy hops with a pleasant tropical fruit tangerine sweetness to round things out. nice balance. not too bitter, not too sweet. worked pretty well. not terribly potent aroma, but very easy to drink. good job at the session hoppy pale ale style.

For having such a neutered abv, Ballast Point really took their craft to another level in making this session IPA both complex and unique. The hops are definitely palatable, and the nose is wildly misleading. This is definitely a masterful brew with humility that other breweries should take note of.

sloth (2501) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - OCT 13, 2014
Small, tight, white head, good lace and a clear, copper hued appearence. Nice flowery, grassy nose with light fruity citrusy notes. Nice mouthfeel, good carbonation, lightly oily and a hint resiny, clean and light. Dry, pale malts, nicely biscuity and freshly grainy, slightly juicy hops and a clean dry finish with a balanced bitterness. Cool little quaffer! Pretty tasty, clean aromas, nice mouth feel for such a small brew. Cans from statelineliquors.

Tap, O’Briens. Pours light golden orange in color. Mildly hoppy aroma. Good malty balance with the bitterness. Good APA.

ABR 2014. Very sessionable, just as they describe. I was not aware that the alcohol was so low. Sweet malt and citrus flavors from the hops.

Can. Bright orange. Grassy citrus hops , light, crisp, refreshing. Mouthfeel is a little too thin and watery. This isn’t the greatest session ipa but, I could definitely see drinking a bunch of these on a summer day. Pretty good

Bottle. Dark clear gold with thin white head. Aroma is citrusy hops. Taste follows and adds a tea like quality. Thin mouthfeel, moderate carb and quick finish. Ok.

Tap@bishops, gamla. Amber. Real nice fruity hoppy nose. Grapefruit, caramels, peaches. Soft nice body. Doesn’t feel watery, but light though. Hoppy lingering finish. Good session ipa. Understandably a bit thin in the middle, but very enjoyable still.

Tap@ bishops arms, gamla stan, Stockholm. Mahogany color, thick white head. Citrusy fruity hoppy aroma, some sweetness, floral notes. Flavor has grapefruit, blood orange, juicy as hell. Lovely session IPA. Could drink this every day. More please.
