this beer is bangin! one of the best of the seemingly endless stream of fruited ballast point beers that have been rolling out since their acquisition. ive been generally fairly negative towards the other ones, much preferring the base beers to most of the slightly gimmicky variants, but this one is amazingly delicious. the mango is very forward and very ripe, always seems like mango is in conjunction with some other more powerful fruits like pineapple or passion, and its lost. here its on its own and its really vibrant and forward, even in front of the hops. so sweet and tropical up front, honey notes and the fruit together, a little more of a caramel type malt base than i expected for such a low alcohol beer. the hops are awesome too, juicy and citrusy, and not even a little bit bitter. the fruit and the hops together are a perfect marriage, each one really prominent and fresh, this is summer beer for sure. i am not sure i have had the regular even keel, but i cant imagine it being better than this. the mango is the perfect fruit and the amount of it is perfect as well. i love how low alcohol it is too. one of the best sessions of the summer this year!

Ballast Point Brewing Co. "Mango Even Keel"
12 fl. oz. can, no packaging code or freshness dating
So remind me, what's the "Even Keel"? There are so many beers anymore I just forget. Right, it's their "Session IPA", got it. Well that should be good then, right? A little more tropical character to give it a little more berth and depth.

Well, it's OK. In comparison to the standard "Even Keel" I'd have to say it doesn't really improve it. It's quite different, and it's OK, but it's not any better in my opinion. The mango's pretty solid in both flavor and aroma, and it's almost a fruit beer except that it's got a solid bitterness to it. Ballast point seems to be going crazy with all of these fruit flavored versions, and some of them are great, but I'm not so sure this one works as well. On the other hand it's not bad, there's a pleasant malt/fruit balance, and it's not overly bitter. There's certainly nothing technically wrong with it, and it's both interesting and refreshing. I wouldn't turn it down.
