This beer is what it is, something with a little more bite than an off-the-shelf or "big-box" offering, something you can drink more than one of, but really not a mindblowing IPA experience.
I think this is the perfect beer to introduce to non-craft-beer drinkers. I brought a 6-pack of these to a BBQ recently. The fridge was filled with Miller Lites and Coronas, and my Founders were gone in seconds. They were really well received, fortunately I was able to get one for myself!
Refreshing, citrus, a great warm/hot-weather beer. Nice with food, not overpowering or bullish.
I would definitely buy this beer again, it's a great standby when you want something simple, with some flavor, that doesn't break the bank, that you can share with other non-beer-snobs.

Single can from a friend, no apparent date code. Poured into an All Day IPA pint glass.
A: Pours a hazy golden body with an inch of soapy, white head. The head hangs around for a few minutes, but eventually recedes to a wispy cap, leaving no lacing as I drink. It looks like a decent, but not spectacular, IPA.
S: Opening the can releases quite the burst of aroma; in the glass, I get an ample display of citrusy hops and fairly strong grain scent. Not bad at all for such a "small" beer.
T: A bit of citrusy hops, some more generic hop bitterness, and a lot of grain. Finishes with an interplay of hop bitterness and malt sweetness, though as the beer warms more of a lingering grainy bitterness shows up. On the whole, the flavor is good, but I don't see myself drinking this "all day."
M: Medium-bodied, with a grainy mouthfeel. I wasn't expecting much, and it delivers.
O: As an IPA, this would be a one-time beer for me. As a "Session IPA," it really does manage to hit all the notes while keeping the ABV low.
