when they were filling the growler I could smell this thing from over yon... damn...

eyes...
clean golden brown hue, white head of a concave stance, nice lacing, pretty basic but effective (like a good judo chop)
nose...
nice pine bomb with citric notes, in some way it doesn't totally go off into pine psycho ville but it is strong, damn hoptastic smell, it is pretty same song but that aint wrong imo... scent wise this is really nice for a lower ABV, this would give run to some DIPAs

taste etc...
medium light body with a nice prickly carbonation bite, some lemony afterbits, hop flavor is solid but not overwhelming... at first sip you almost think this will get old quick... but it doesn't ! this has big hop flavor that sort of smacks you in the face... and then retreats so you say "thank you sir may I have another".. and so you shall

verdict?
session able but tasty as balls ? (if you are into that sort of thing...)
damn tasty stuff, really enjoyable, almost too much flavor for the favor, well done

My everyday beer

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.

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.

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!

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.

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

A - Nice, clear orange-amber color, with a moderate white head, quick to fade, and some lacing.

S - A traditional IPA nose of grass, pine, and citrus.

T - Follows the nose, with lemon and orange, and a sweet malt element of burnt sugars and a bit of cracker in the background, fading to a mild bittering line that lasts.

M - The bitterness is moderate, but it sticks around. Some drying, but nothing too aggressive.

O - This is a good IPA that happens to be sessionable. That is rare in the session IPA sphere. Add to it that All Day is a reasonably priced offering from Founders, and you get a rock solid brew.

When fresh and out of a can, this beer is addictive. The can is empty before I know it. I truly love it when it's on point. The problem is that you never know if it will be great or mediocre til you buy it.

This is a very drinkable beer. It is the light version of Founder's Centennial. It has a light hoppy presence, just enough to keep it interesting. There is also some malt behind. This beer is just not outstanding in any way, however with its lower alcohol content that you can drink all day....

I could drink a million of these at a baseball game. I mean for a 4.7abv beer its going to be watery. I find nothing wrong with this brew. This reminds me of Victory’s Headwaters, but the aroma is slightly better though. Citrus, resin, herbal tea, can’t go wrong. Perfect summer beer. Recommended.

I have a special fondness like alot of people do for this GR brewery.Poured into a standard pint glass a dull medium golden with almost no head to speak of,I gotta say alittle unhappy with the pour.Tropical fruit-like hop aromas along with grass to give the hops more punch,a lightly sweet malt base underneath,nice hop complexity.Tangerine hops dominate the palate with mild caramel sweetness and toasted cereal grains underneath the good hop profile.Yeah this is a great American style session ale with its big hop presence,Iam gonna buy a few six packs before grillin season.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. The color is a hazy amber/copper mixture, along the lines of what you'd expect for an American IPA. Minimal head and minimal lacing left on the glass. Smells very earthy, even more so than many full-on IPAs. Heavy on the hops and very piney, full of oils and resins. Tons of citrus on the nose also, especially as it warms up, mainly grapefruit and pineapple. The taste follows right along with a heavy dose of pine, hops, and dank resins, balanced superbly by the citrus flavors of the grapefruit and pineapple. Slight warmth, which is funny considering the low ABV. Carbonation is nice and provides a good bite. The aftertaste is slightly woody and definitely bitter.

My only main complaint is that the beer tastes a bit "watery" at times, but nonetheless, is still packed with flavor for a 4.7% ABV beer. This is definitely something I could drink all day.

A: Golden with a light haze.

S: A strong citrus hop aroma with some pineapple, tropical fruit notes. There is a moderate amount of a herbaceous, grassiness from dry hopping and just a slight bit of malt sweetness.

T: This is a great hop delivery device, with strong citrus and tropical fruit flavored hops and a moderately-strong hops bitterness. The isn't much in the way of malt, just a light clean sweetness. The balance is bitter with a dry finish.

O: A great take in a lower abv IPA which highlights the hops even more than a maltier strong beer would.
