12 oz bottle poured into a Sierra Nevada imperial pint.
Bottled 12/26/11, 42 IBU, 4.7% ABV.
A - Vibrant golden hued, plenty of carbonation streams through the perfectly clear beer to a well-retained ivory head. Thin, clingy lace dots the pint delicately.
S - Holy dry-hopped aroma Batman! All Day IPA smells incredible! Voluptuous citrus; lemon wedge, cubed pineapple, and balled mango make up this very tropical aroma that finishes out with a touch of pine. Pale graininess and smooth pils sweetness back up the near-orgasmic hop nose.
T - Pale and pils malt provide a great base and delicious flavor behind the bold hop profile that mirrors the aroma. Tropical but balanced.
M - Lighter bodied, perfect for a session ale, this crisp IPA has an impeccably balanced finish that allows the moderate bitterness to be accented without becoming a chore to drink.
O - Damn near flawless, All Day IPA is a session ale packed with hop flavor and character that's exciting but not overwhelming or taxing after a few. It's not often I want to drink pint after pint of a beer but, I'd be overly willing to put six of these back. Founders has nailed it; All Day IPA is the quintessential American session ale!
