A simple beer all around. Pours a nice golden amber color with a decent head that sticks around for a nice amount of time. Smells of your typical IPA elements; grapefruit and pine. The taste though is very simple. There is a forward push of hops and citrus notes but very little behind it. The initial taste is very enjoyable but quickly turns to a bitter, astringent flavor that is vaguely reminiscent of(what I can only describe as) feline urine. Its not a horrible beer but definitely not what I expect from a brewery like Founders. Would purchase again only in a pinch.

Pours a little cloudy, yellow with a thin head and no retention. No lace, a little yeast floating on top. It doesn’t look like much. The nose is big. Crisp with citrus, spice, tangerine, hay , floral and a even a little lemon. Good pine and resin. There’s a touch pale malt and only a very little bread. Some caramel sweetness as it opens up. Catty as it warms. Taste is really terrific for a very light beer. This has a low abv but it smells and tastes like a big beer. Citrus and floral. The hops pronounce the drink delicious and and stay with it all the way through. There is a just a little grain and bread and a decent bitterness. Some yeast and sour grapefruit. Body is a little thin and has brisk carbonation.Slightly bitter and slightly dry in the finish. This is a good session beer just like it promises. Low in alcohol so you can drink it all day and low in calories too. Has plenty of flavor and was satisfying.

As the label on the bottle tells us this this IPA is a session ale. It fills that role very well. It pours golden with a very fluffy two fingers on top. Smells really good, kinda sour like pickle juice, along with a mild hop scent.

this is the least bitter ipa ive had in a while. very good for novice beer drinkers that want to get into hoppy beers but can't pallet the high IBUs. this guys comes in at just 42 IBUs.

a little sour and a little hoppy, nothing amazing in the taste.

watery mouth feel, not great.

a good ipa session beer I would go for ranger from new belgium for a a better session ipa.

Bottle (2012)

Acquired via trade
Thanks, dannyfrost!

Clear golden orange with a very small bone-white head that doesn't last long. This leaves the glass nearly clean on the way down.

The best part of this beer is it's aroma and it consists of pine and grapefruit hop aromas, along with a bit of biscuit.

Very simple, drinkable IPA. This is not hugely flavorful, but what's here is nice. There's mild grapefruit and pine, cracker and biscuit, and some grass elements.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

A very simple, straightforward, boring low ABV IPA.

First time having this one. Poured aggressively and was rewarded with a two and a half finger off white head that didn't stick around. Body is orange around the middle of my glass and golden where the light shines through the bottom.

Nose is awesome. pine, apricot, orange rind and flesh, tiny bit of lemon. Pick up a fair amount resin also.

Front of flavor is tart, piney, and heavily resinous. There's a nice light malty sweetness that carries through. I miss the majority of the juicier fruit flavors but still pick up orange and lemon rind. Overall, very tasty, refreshing beer.

All Day IPA

Served in New Belgium tulip

A: Pours clear pale gold with modest head that has little retention. No lacing. Modest effervescence. 

S: Ripe fuzzy fruits, especially peaches, some resin, instant tea, and biscuity malts. An unexpected note of strawberry. I'm tempted to say grapefruit, but I never quite get there.

T: Tongue disappoints. Light, general fruit joins stronger resin. Malts taste more toasty. Relative bitterness is strong. Finish is bitter and grainy. 

M: Light body and medium-light carbonation. Out of the growler the beer drinks as though it were on cask. 

O: All Day IPA drinks packs quite a bit of smell and taste for being a lower ABV beer. It feels a little too "on the fence" though, meaning it isn't quite a session beer or a proper IPA. Still, it is quite drinkable due to its simplicity and lower ABV.

Bottle poured into a tulip glass

Pours a gold color with decent white head.

Smell is of a citrus IPA with a little pine. Not malty at all.

Taste is a bit of a letdown. Tastes like a solid IPA that had some extra water added to it.

Know what they were going for but it is just a miss for me. I would rather have less of bettter than this alternative.
