Pours a slightly hazy, pale golden orange color with a half finger white foam head that immediately fades into a very thin ring. Minimal spotty lacing left behind.
Dank, floral hop aroma with lots of resinous pine and earthy grass character countered by subtle citrus fruit and a pale malt backbone. Slightly spicy with grass, pine needle and über-fresh sticky buds followed by some grapefruit, pineapple, biscuit and graham cracker. Kind of reminds me of fresh cut grass. Very nice!
Medium bodied with a crisp and spicy earthy hop bite that lingers over the sweeter fruit notes and pale malt backbone into a dry finish. Fresh juicy hops with some dry, earthy bitterness and resinous pine flavor countered by hints of grapefruit, mango and pineapple. Could use a bit more citrus/tropical fruit flavor but there is enough there to add complexity and balance out the bitterness. Underneath, there is a pale malt backbone that really helps balance things out without taking away from the hop flavors. Some bread, biscuit, graham cracker and a touch of sweetness rounding things out in the finish. Really tasty and excellently balanced with a low ABV making this beer extremely drinkable. Not the most flavorful or aggressively hopped IPA but it's really nice and I could see myself drinking this "all day".

Founders All Day IPA has a fairly thick, foamy, off-white head, a somewhat hazy (suspended sediment), bubbly, burnished gold appearance, and a bit of residual lacing. Aroma is pineapple, hop resin, and white bread. Taste is the same, with moderate bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Founders All Day IPA finishes semi-dry, easy drinking, and refreshing. Overall, an excellent example of a ho-hum style. Elevated price and disappointing presentation, in the overall scheme of things.
