I love the fullness of flavor from IIPAs and IPAs. So, session IPAs make me a little leery. However, Ballast Point has developed some real fullness in Even Keel that I don't pick up in other sessions. Well Done.

A-pours a clear golden color with a 1finger white head some lacing
S-slight tropical and citrus notes some grassy and sweet malts smells
T-light on the citrus/tropical hop taste had some baked bread cracker malts that competed with the hops
M-medium carbonation a tad watered down
O-typical session brew taste and hops were light its worth a try
