The name "All Day" IPA is quite accurate, this beer definitely packs the hops seasoned IPA drinkers love, but it's just a bit lighter on the hop and citrus side. Just enough to make this IPA not too bitter on the pallet over time, not tongue-numbing and quite sessionable.

12oz bottle in standard pint glass. Slightly hazy golden color that projects a heavier beer than it is; virtually no head, only slight, fleeting lacing, visible carbonation; citrus scent; very dry, the citrus hop profile is the prominent taste, but bitterness from start to finish. Overall: A refreshing beer that beats most low ABV options and probably in the top-tier among session IPAs. Given how much I like Founders' offerings, I was hoping for more. (7.5)

Appearance - 4/5
very clear light orange. About one finger of head, disspates down to a minimal layer of head on the top of the beer. An average amount of carbonation can be seen rising from the beer.

Smell - 3.75/5
Strong pine hops smell. Can't really smell anything else.

Taste - 4.25/5
The pine-hops taste is not as strong as the smell, rather it is balanced with a light malts taste. I really like the taste, because it provides the pine taste, but almot no bitterness. I definitely see this being a session beer, as the name suggests.

Mouthfeel - 4/5
Slightly less than medium body. Smooth, with only a hint of bitterness. A medium amount of light carbonation. The carbonation level fits nicely with the rest of the beer.

Overall - 4/5
Overall, this is a good, sessionable IPA. I'm not an IPA fan, but I could see myself easily drinking a few of these in one sitting no problem. A highly drinkable IPA. Recommended for those who are just trying to break into the IPA style, or those who enjoy IPAs only occasionally.

For a session, it's great! Light enough for anytime of day, yet it has a strong hop forward taste that packs a crisp, pine/floral punch. Great outta the can...My go-to for the outdoors!
