Looking forward to trying this new session ale, picked up a six pack at my local shop. 12 ounce bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled on date of 2/2/12.
A- Pours a nice and clear light amber color with a fingers worth of head. The head dissipates rather quickly. The carbonation is noticeable with many fizzy bubbles coming from the bottom center of the glass.
S- Awesomely aromatic for a such a low ABV beer. Smells of citrusey hops.
T- I know its only 42 IBUs, but the smell really had me ready for a more flavorful experience. Up front is some nice hop bitterness, quickly changing toward a malty backbone. Not bad, but I expected more.
M- Light, nicely carbonated, balanced well. An easy drinker as a session ale should be.
This is a good IPA. However, if I was looking to drink several beers for whatever occasion, I would probably choose something else. All Day IPA is definitely worth a try though.

Single can from a friend, no apparent date code. Poured into an All Day IPA pint glass.
A: Pours a hazy golden body with an inch of soapy, white head. The head hangs around for a few minutes, but eventually recedes to a wispy cap, leaving no lacing as I drink. It looks like a decent, but not spectacular, IPA.
S: Opening the can releases quite the burst of aroma; in the glass, I get an ample display of citrusy hops and fairly strong grain scent. Not bad at all for such a "small" beer.
T: A bit of citrusy hops, some more generic hop bitterness, and a lot of grain. Finishes with an interplay of hop bitterness and malt sweetness, though as the beer warms more of a lingering grainy bitterness shows up. On the whole, the flavor is good, but I don't see myself drinking this "all day."
M: Medium-bodied, with a grainy mouthfeel. I wasn't expecting much, and it delivers.
O: As an IPA, this would be a one-time beer for me. As a "Session IPA," it really does manage to hit all the notes while keeping the ABV low.

This is an amazing beer. Something that you can truly drink ALL DAY! Hmmm, wonder if that has anything to do with the name of the beer?
Great golden color and very clear. Small inch head that dissipates quickly with mild lacing. Probably one of the reason I enjoyed drinking this beer so much was from the mouthfeel. It was so smooth and light.
It is not an overpowering hoppy IPA, but still has a great hop taste. Minimally bitter. And can be enjoyed ALL DAY as it is a session beer.
Overall: I loved it and would drink it as a go to daily beer. In fact, I might just do that with St. Patrick's Day coming up in Savannah, Georgia in a week!

4.5/5 rDev +16.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
A- Dark yellow/light orange with a thin head that doesn't lace.
S- Tropical fruit, Citrus, Pine, Funk, and fresh apple aromas. It smells clean and refreshing.
T- Slightly sweet upfront with a burst of tropical fruit. Citrus and pine make an appearance in the middle followed by a mellow bitter finish.
M- Medium-light bodied with low carbonation. It is also slick on the tongue.
O- A very tastey and refreshing beer. It's the perfect beer when you're craving flavor but not an abundance of bitterness or alcohol.
Serving type: on-tap
