look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

12oz Bottle
$9.99 6-Pack
4 Season's Liquor

Bottled: 4/21/14

A pour from the bottle fills the glass with a liquid that glows like polished brass. Harvest orange hues run through the body when backlit. The foam is antique white with a bubbly, soapy appearance. The initial pour produces a solid head that slowly settles at a chunky skim coat with scattered chunks floating about.

The nose is bright with hops. The malt base is pale with a sugar cookie and soft biscuity sweetness allowing the hop profile to take center stage. Citrus abounds, mostly in the form of grapefruit and tangerine, but remnants of apricot and pineapple play their role as well. Fruit salad is first and foremost but there is also an underlying herbaceous quality along with mild florals. This beer gets my mouth watering every time.

White grapefruit is big, in your face, and pithy upfront. The grapefruit is bright and freshly squeezed, pushing it's way throughout while being accompanied by the occasional tangerine, candied citrus peel, and apricot. The herbaceous quality is still present but with pine characteristics, and softer than in the nose. Sugar cookie malt adds a touch of sweetness that helps balance the pithy grapefruit.

The body is light with supple carbonation a luxuriously silky mouthfeel. There's a sturdy bitterness present but not at all palate wrecking. drinkability is off the charts with the low abv and juicy hop profile.

I have to say, I'm not very fond of the new "session IPA" craze, but All Day has been a favorite of mine since it was released back in the day. I just wish fresh bottles/cans were a little easier to come across because if that was the case it would be All Day, everyday.

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.
