In this beer blog, we are going to sample another beer from Ballast Point Brewing. We are going to sample a session IPA. This will be second from last session IPA that will be featured on this blog. We will feature Ballast Point Brewing Mango Evan Keel Session IPA. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this west coast craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this California base craft brewery. Let us get into this session IPA.
It has a slightly dark golden color to a light cooper color with a white constant head. The aroma has a citrus to heavy mango notes. The taste has a nice mango notes with a nice mango aftertaste. It is extremely drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.ballastpoint.com):
Our Mango Even Keel is the ideal beer for easy drinking. This hoppy, session ale gets a flavor boost from mango, which perfectly plays off the citrusy hop bouquet. With fruit, hops, and a low ABV, this beer truly is on another level.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
In closing, I am a pretty big fan of Ballast Point Brewing. I am done with Session IPA but mangoes are what made me buy this brew. Session IPA’s are Pale Ales. I am sick of the marketing gimmick. I am not a fan. Ballast Point, please, call it a Pale Ale. I hate session IPA’s and this is the second frkm last one that I will try. I recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
