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.

BeerdedDave (1416) - Beckley, USA - AUG 13, 2015
nice, citrusy hop aroma; really citrusy hop flavor; very light malt base - really like liquid hops - no malt to get in the way; all the hoppiness of an IPA at only 3.8% abv so you can have a bunch

tfontana (815) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 23, 2015
Keg pour at NH Brewfest. Appearance is clear golden pour (absolutely gorgeous) with finger-width white head, mild sparkle and nice lacing. Aroma is strong pine/spruce. Taste is pine/spruce bitterness with some corn. Palate is light-to-medium with average texture and carbonation and strong (almost too much) bitter finish. Overall, a decent amount here for a session IPA.

flying_pig (1443) - SCOTLAND - NOV 23, 2015
355ml Can from BottleDog (Glasgow, 2.80):
Fresh & hoppy with lots of flavour despite the low abv. Good bitterness with nice citrus & pine hops. Definitely one of the better session IPAs & very easy to drink, maybe not quite as good as Stones Go To IPA or Founders All Day IPA but it runs them very close & is a nice beer that I wouldnt mind getting again.

superspak (4882) - Michigan, USA - FEB 25, 2016
12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 11/19/2015. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy deep orange/amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, honey, light caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of bright citrus/tropical hops and light-moderate bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, honey, light caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine/citrus rind/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, melon, lemon/orange peel, pine, honey, toasted bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/pine hops and light-moderate bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness and lighter body that increases through the glass. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp/sticky/resinous, and lightly creamy/grainy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 3.8%. Overall this is a very nice Session IPA style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/pine hops and light-moderate bready malt flavors; and very smooth, crisp, and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Burk bestllningssortimentet SB. Brnstensfrgad, klar, lgt vitt skum. Fin fruktig doft med tropisk frukt och citrus. Rejl kropp fr stilen och om inte humlen ocks var s bra hade jag skrivit maltfokuserad fr kroppen r rejl, mjuk och med fina smaknyander utan att bli fr st och til det fruktig humle medvl avvgd beska. En av de bsta Session-IPor jag druckit.

HuskerTan (1809) - 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.
