My everyday beer

It's the one of the few IPAs that I can drink honestly, everyday. Drinkable, super drinkable. Loads of flavor, lots of citrus little pine. Amarillo and Centennial hops, they are the ticket

It's so effing drinkable. Goes down smoother than a MillCoorWeiser, with a shit ton of flavor. A++ Founders.

The best session ipa in my opinion. Fruity and hoppy on the nose but smooth taste.

For someone who isn't a fan of IPA's, this was a contradiction. Light body but still plenty of hopp flavor. Goes down smooth to allow more consumption

This beer is a cloudy, yellow amber color with earthy/soil aromas. The hops are slightly overwhelming with a strong bitter finish.

This beer is pale and hoppy but light at the same time. It is somewhat cloudy and has a yellow color. I am not really a fan of IPA but it was a good one for someone new to IPA.

Bitter but not as "hoppy" as one would come to expect from an IPA. Not as high of ABV than other IPAs but has very distinct flavors. Good but not great.

Golden and hazy with hints of orange. It smells of orange, bananas, wheat, and slight sourness. As for taste, this beer is flavorful with hints of citrus and noticeable hops. If you like IPAs, give it a try.

All Day pours a light gold/hay/amber color with very little head. The nose has a nice balance of floral and pine hop aromas matched by a light, crisp mouthfeel. This beer is super balanced and sessionable, perfect for spending a summer day outside.

This is an all around great beer. For the low alcohol content, this beer packs a lot of citrus hop notes and hoppy taste that's just bitter enough to remind you that it's an IPA.

Great carbonation, lending to its drinkability.

This is a damn spunky beer for sure. Tickles your senses. Even tho I am partial to stouts and porters... I decided to venture out my comfort zone. Boy did it pay off. Pours a cloudy golden haze with minimal white head with light lacing. Smells of skunky pine, floral, and a bit of hops. Intoxicating. Taste is actually like it smells but very light bodied to what I was expecting. Not as bitter as you would think. Finishes very smooth. Well done guys well done. Yummm

yum yummy yum. better than most IPAs and all the flavor of the hard hitting Higher ABV ales.
pairs wildly with pizza ala pepperoni.

the price is nice. i like and you will like too, if you prefer India Pale Ales. Take comfort!

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.

Awesome hop flavor with low alcohol content. Perfect refreshing beer on a warm day. It is a session ale that is first of its kind. It has a very crisp hop. It comes in cans now so it is easily portable for any all day activity!

A - Poured Vigoursly into a plain pint glass, awesome carbonation, tons of bubbles rising from the sides and bottom. Has a gorgeous golden blonde color, pretty clear, no sediment floating around. Leaves a nice inch and a half white head with some decent size bubbles. I love the label on this beer, it pretty much it explains the beer to a T. Old station wagon headed to the beach. a 4.7% ipa that tastes like its from Cali.

S - Has a strong west coast aroma, lots of citrus, pine, and floral hop characters with little to no malt aroma at all.

T - No way is this under 5% abv. The hop profile strongly resembles Double Trouble, only thing missing is the strong alcohol taste that double trouble leaves behind. This is much cleaner, and has no alcohol taste. It leaves a refreshing crisp taste. A lot of reviews I've read about this on here mentions a metallic taste but I didn't notice any from the bottle.

M - Wonderful! Very crisp, clean carbonation that is extremely refreshing. If there's a beer out there that makes your mouth water, its this. Obviously since it's only 4.7% there is no warm alcohol feel. A very light viscosity adds to the overall drinkablity of this beer.

O - The name of this beer describes it perfectly. This is exactly what i'm looking for in a session beer. Lots of flavor refreshing mouthfeel and low abv. I could drink a whole six of this while playing a round of golf or fishing with no problem. For your next poker night be sure to grab a six pack of this.

Never poured it out of the can. Smells super piney. Tastes just the same. Just a touch of bitter. So easy to drink. Exactly what it says it is. I could drink these all day at the beach. I might even be able to talk some of my cheap beer drinking friends to try this. Wow an IPA that is not over the top and is ok with itself.

This beverage is straw-gold in color. It smells STRONGLY of hops. The hops smell kind of hits you in the face. The taste is strongly of hops, but it is not overwhelmingly bitter even though it has bitter notes. The body is good light-medium. For as hoppy as it is, it is fairly drinkable. For the type of beer it is, it is done well. It is just not my style.

Oh I love this IPA! It is a bright golden yellow and a little cloudy. It smells of hops and is really crisp. It is easy too drink and for being an IPA it isn't terribly bitter. It actually tastes pretty amazing. It is really refreshing!

Okay I am not a huge fan of IPA beers. Most I don't like but this Founders All Day IPA is good. It has a bitter taste like all IPA's but its not super bitter like most are. It has a light body, even though it isn't a light beer, and is average in beer calories so its very easy to drink. I don't like how you get a choice of both bottles and cans. It kind made me skeptical at first since it was offered in a can but every Founders beer I had so far was good. The cost was decent at $18 for a 15 pack of cans. Bottom line if I want an IPA this will be my first choice.
