The name is true. This is very drinkable but not an overly flavorful or hoppy IPA. Great summer beer but don't expect to have your senses blown

This beer hits you with a nice floral smell and provides a good hop bite that finishes clean.

Nicely hoppy and refreshing. May be my 1st choice for the category.

Very "sessionable". A decent mix of hops and malts. It does have a watered down taste to get to the 4.7% Abv, a taste some other session ales are able to combat. It's exactly as described, an ipa to drink "all day".

This is great IPA. I prefer Two Hearted Ale, but Founder's makes a smooth and balanced beer. The hops are just right, and the aftertaste leaves you wanting more. Darker in color with an orange tint, I recommend this beer.

Orange or dark gold in color. The taste was tangy, almost sour, with a weird after taste to follow.

I haven't been much on the session IPA craze but this is a very nice beer. My main aversion to the style is monetary. I can't bring myself to spend $11 on a six pack of beer this low ABV. However it was a hot day and I had just walked a couple of miles. This was on happy hour special and it hit the spot when the others choices were heavier IPAs or Allagash white. This split the difference of what I needed. Great hop flavor but a lighter more drinkable body. Really good.

Best thing about this beer is a relatively low alcohol content for an IPA.

Best tasting session IPA I have had. Nice and hoppy full body taste, very smooth finish, I purchase these in 15 pack cans and it's very reasonably priced.

Perfect session IPA, reminds me of moon man with a little more bitterness. Refreshing, good color for the style with nice head retention. Slightly floral with citrus. I love it

Poured into a tumbler from a 12 oz bottle

Color is clear gold with a frothy white head that slowly receded to clumpy islands. Lacing is okay. Smell is really nice - tropical and citrus fruit. Flavor is also very good. It's a little subdued, being a session IPA, but still very tasty. Body is light/medium with good carbonation. Overall, one of the first session IPA I've had that I actually would enjoy sessioning.

Heavy grapefruit, a bit much for me otherwise would be a 4. Good balance malt, crisp and not too dry

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a tap into a 16 oz pint glass, an unremarkable blonde-gold color with a short lived white head that left a lot of lace. Mild hop aroma. Tastes strongly of piney resin and bright citrus hops, rather astringent at first, almost more Pine-Sol than pine, but then rounds out with a little more malt for a clean light finish. Mouthfeel is pleasant and slightly sticky. The overall flavor profile just slightly off-key, the front a tad too bitter, the finish a tad too watery. This reminds me of sodas or juice drinks with reduced sugar: my tongue misses the boozy heft of the real thing. However when you want those bitter hops but only a minor buzz, this gets the job done and is fairly pleasant.

All the facets of an IPA like the bitterness, stinky Hop breath, and satiating of the pine tree palate without all the buzz. I guess I'm happy that I can reliably go beer for beer with my Bud drinking friends IPA style now without looking (or feeling) inadequate....at the same time it's a bummer that I'm gonna have to drink a few more of these IPAs before I'm feeling good. Though it may take one or two more to get me going, that's okay, because this one has a bright, citrus flavor to it that tastes pretty good actually.

A - Pours a clear golden orange with a two-finger foamy white. The head dissapates quickly and leaves some soapy lacing.

S - Aroma is floral hops and citrus.

T - The flavor starts with a nice hit of piney hops that quickly into some nice citrus and bready malts.

M - Light bodied with high carbonation. The mouthfeel is crisp with a dry finish.

O - This is a great session IPA. Perfect for a drinking session or a warm day.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Look: Nice hazy golden color with a quickly dissipating head. Minimal lacing.

Smell: The smell is light and hard to distinguish. I suppose its a result of its low ABV and light body, but what little smell there is, is pleasant. Citrus with light hops. Melon and orange come through. Very light and refreshing.

Taste: Hops peak and fall quickly, leaving citrus throughout the entire sip. Alcohol is nonexistant, obviously, which is welcome with its light and refreshing nature. IPA style is present without having to go to the nth degree with its typical features. Extremely tasty. Can't wait to sip this at a BBQ or while camping during the summer. I want to see how it will hold up as it gets warm in the heat of outdoor activity, which might effect its taste (particularly in the can). This will likely be avoided considering the fact that it is drinkable and goes fast.

Feel: Very thin, but fits with the session style and taste of the brew. Salivation from the small hop hit and citrus keeps it from being TOO thin. Good.

Overall: Easily the best session IPA i've ever heard. No reason to ever drink a bud light again with this beer. Easily worth the extra money for a 15 pack as opposed to a 12er for 18 for little difference in price. Glad I found it.

Prefer it in cans, the 15 pack of Founders All Day IPA can almost always be found in my fridge. Excellent, excellent IPA, punches way above its "class/ABV," and is enjoyable one at a time, or eight at a time!
