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.

Light copper coloured body with a amber glow and a thin, soapy white head, only about a centimetre tall. Aroma of fresh grassy hops with a touch of herbs, soap and some very mild bitterness, but not much at all. Super light-bodied; Very mild flavour of grass, herbs, hops, resin and a faint bit of pine - the hops are noticeable, but very mild, and the beer goes down very easily given that there isnt much malt here at all. Aftertaste shows the grass and hay with little else, a touch of light tropical fruit flavours and thats about it. Overall, a good beer for the style - shows the hops, shows a touch of bitterness, a tiny bit of complexity, yet remains super easy to drink and doesnt show any alcohol at all - perfect for the summertime, which is just about everyday in California! I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 12-July-2015 for US$1,79 sampled on the train from Washington to New York (while in New Jersey) on 18-December-2015.

Lightly hazed amber color with a taller light taupe colored head. Full citric aroma, with backdrop of lightly toasted malt and caramel. Mild toasted malt and citrus. Mild finish and linger. An easy drinking hoppy amber.

Had this on draft at sheffields. Orange cloudy pour with creamy white head. Light honey pine and slightly hoppy taste. Good for a session IPA

I was disappointed with this one. Had a tuna fishing trip out of San Diego, but this just seemed too watered down surprisingly, even for the "style" of session IPA. I mean, it did taste like a light IPA as opposed to an American pale, but the flavor just didnt work for me.

[email protected], gamla. Amber. Real nice fruity hoppy nose. Grapefruit, caramels, peaches. Soft nice body. Doesnt feel watery, but light though. Hoppy lingering finish. Good session ipa. Understandably a bit thin in the middle, but very enjoyable still.

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 its like WOW!!!

Growler from JCs, wasnt terribly impressed by the sample but wanted to give it a chance with volume, where my opinion of these lighter offerings tends to improve. Nose orange peel and citrus, very hoppy , pine. Pours hazy orange with a lacing, rocky off-white head. Taste is extremely, bone dry and strongly bitter, light wood and resin, touch of astringency. The light body makes the bitterness stand out all the more. No signs of alcohol, no signs of malt, but great repeatability for such imbalance. Crisp, refreshing session, ein gelungenes Experiment

oof, or better yet, OLOF. This sucked. Tasted like cardboard, i know sessions are all about the nuances but this was LAME. Nothing, just wet cardboard.

Pours deep gold into a shaker. White head with good retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Dark resin aromas. Thin with resin and grapefruit upfront with an abrupt pith finish.

New Beer Distributors, NYC can ($2): Pours light copper with a frothy white head. Aroma is grapefruit, lemon, and pine with light malt backbone. Taste is lightly bitter hops. Body is a little on the watery side. This is very light even for this characteristically light style. Refreshing and even a little sweet. It is kind of what I was looking for.
