Poured into a tulip. Sort of a nice light orange amber with a white foam. Dissipates very quickly to a small ring with a little lacing. The smell is a wonderful hoppy citrus with a bit of spruce. Taste is light, clean and fresh citrusy hops with a mildly bitter finish. Light mouthfeel with good carbonation. Overall great session IPA. I could easily see myself going through quite a few of these.  (399 characters)

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 (193 characters)

It's so effing drinkable. Goes down smoother than a MillCoorWeiser, with a shit ton of flavor. A++ Founders. (108 characters)

The best session ipa in my opinion. Fruity and hoppy on the nose but smooth taste. (82 characters)

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. (358 characters)

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! (236 characters)

Look! This is not the tastiest beer in the lot. But, if you want a step up from lawn mower beer with some taste and some body, then this is your dude. If you are 30yo+ and want to get drunk and don't want your wife/friends/neighbours to think you are still a college jackass with your bud lights and millers, yet still want to tune at least 12-24 of these bitches, then this is your new go to. Light, has hops, not to rounded, but cant complain since the 18 pack comes in at only $17.99 here in Ohio. (500 characters)

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 (152 characters)

This beer is a cloudy, yellow amber color with earthy/soil aromas. The hops are slightly overwhelming with a strong bitter finish. (130 characters)

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. (176 characters)

Beautiful fresh piney hop smell. Taste is Fresh and pretty much all hops so not very balanced but I don't mind. Flavorful and great for the price. Really good straight from the can actually. yb (193 characters)

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. (152 characters)

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. (210 characters)

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. (248 characters)

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. (228 characters)

Summery: A great session ale... I am slightly bias to Founders beers. Still it's the value in the 15 'Brewers pack' for $17.99 that really makes me get giddy over it. Adding on to the fact that it moves rather fast at a few local shops, means I can almost always swoop this less than a month old. Such a great value and readily available go-to~ (517 characters)

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 (475 characters)

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! (231 characters)

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. (1,263 characters)

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! (229 characters)
