Our Even Keel is a hoppy ale designed for smooth sailing. A full-flavored beer with a silky malt backbone and a bright hop profile of herbs and citrus, it packs all the taste of an IPA in a sessionable alcohol content. This ale is perfect for leisurely days on the water, when all you want are a few beers and a level ride.

Can - Slight sweet smell to it from all the malt varieties. Nice Amber color as well. Good balance of malt and hops, neither flavor profile is over powering the other. With all the varietals of hops and malt, I really dont taste any single flavor just a lot of balanced nuance on the palate.

Can at the Lincoln Wine Bar. Surprisingly good. Bigger body than most sessions. Crisp flavors. Really good for a hot summer evening.

Exceptionally smooth. Hoppy, but not too light. Nice body and thick head. Good light citrus notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a can. Im tempted to give this beer a perfect score just because the quality of flavors and richness defy 3.8%?! Looks beautiful, technically sound in clarity with a healthy pillowy head. Malt is smooth and rich, nose is up in my grill with an aggressive west coast theme in the entire sensory realm. Damn BP..damn.

HuskerTan (2049) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - JUL 20, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2016 Can. A- Subtle pine, caramel malt, mango, citrus, stone fruits. A- Amber color, clear liquid, off white head. T- Subtle bitterness, citrus, tropical fruits. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, balanced finish. O- This is light! About as session as it gets. Very balanced between the bitterness, malt, and notes of citrus. There was nothing that stood out and made me say wow, other than wow, this is solid and I could drink a ton.

With an ABV of only 3.8%, Even Keel is laid-back, even by Session IPA standards. With a modest 40 IBUs the bitterness scale is similarly "even." Thats the kind of result youd expect with 10 malt varieties, 6 hop varieties, and 2 yeast strains. Small beer doesnt always mean a scaled-down brewing process. Golden pour. As youd think, theres a large dosage of lemon, grapefruit, and pine. However, dont be surprised to note some malty sweetness. Crisp and slightly sticky texture. If all-day enjoyment is your thing, Even Keel is one of Ballast Points best.

This is probably one of my favorite session ipas. The aroma is really crisp and the taste is very hoppy with a nice bite of bitter. No really strong characteristics populate this beer but its got a nice strong generic hop aroma and taste that seems very fresh. Its not really overly complicated, which is really within the style. Plus the low alcohol is a great way to mow the yard and not cut off your toes.

355ml Bottle - Amber with a foamy head. Pine, dried apricot and tea in the aroma. Hoppy and tangy taste with pine, tea, peach and grapefruit.

Pours clear orange with a large white head. Smells juicy with hints of pine. Taste is fruity with some solid bitterness. Light-bodied with a wet texture and average mouth-carbonation, Ballast Point Even Keel finishes with a lingering juicy bitterness.
