Had this on 2012-02-12 in Normal, IL

A - Very clear gold with a hint of orange. 1-finger head and mild lacing.

S - Fragrant citrus, light tropical and grass, pale malt and a little yeast.

T - Nice flush of citrus flesh, light pine, light grass, pilsner-like malt, orange zest bitterness increases as it dries. The bitterness lingers nicely for a minute. Well balanced.

M - Light body and medium carbonation. Crisp, dry and scrubs the taste buds.

O - Enjoyable. I like it better than Victory Headwaters but not quite as much as the Lagunitas Day Time or the 21st Amendment Bitter American.

12oz bottle
Served in a conical pint

A - It pours golden amber in color, and presents one inch of off white head.

S - I get fresh citrus and tropical aromas. Mango is the most apparent.

T - This beer just seems to be dominated by mango and tropical fruit. I really like this aspect. I get some mild bittering at the end.

M - Medium

O - This is a very good, easy drinking ipa. I always expect quality with Founders and was not disappointed.

First, thats an awsome label and kind of says what this beer is all about.
Bought this at the Wegmens and looks to be very fresh even though the date escapes me.
Aroma was fantastic. Its fresh and aromatic with citrus and pine hops. plenty of sweet malts for balance.
Taste was a little thin and washed out but still plenty of taste to go around.
Hops where bold with a citrus bitterness. Like grapefruits. Very pleasent tasting.
Oh, the appearance was a clear amber with a thin white head that was somewhere between soapy and dense. Some lacing.
Drink quite bitter and had a clean aftertaste.
A very good sessionable brew with lots of flavor.

All Day IPA pours a clear, light bronze color with a moderate, fizzy head and a fair amount of bubbles in the glass. The foam on top dissipates quickly leaving behind a few spots and lines of lace.

The aroma is loaded with orange and tangerine citrus. A little lemon grass and a touch of sweet caramel malt is also present.

Each sip of this light to medium bodied beer is watery with firm carbonation. The flavor begins with lots of orange and lemon citrus before grassy bitterness takes over. Bready cereal malt tries to balance out the hop bitterness, but it comes up short. It finishes dry with lingering orange citrus when gone.

It's nice to have a very hoppy beer that's not 8%+ abv. This beer does tend to lean on the bitter side, but it has tons of hop flavor if that's what you're after.

Glad to see this one as beer of the month at Pints in Elmhurst.

Served in standard shaker, the beer is a nice copper with a semi-clingy beige head.

Classic pine and caramel malt taste. Balanced and well put together. I like the citrus and pineapple that sneak in late.

The mouth is a trifle thin, but that is kind of expected for a session beer if this style.

Picked up a couple of singles from Total Wine at the end of April for $1.99 each. No freshness date.

Beer poured orange with a very smallish head that dissipated quickly.

Nose is of fresh citrus hops.

Taste has hints of mango, with a good dose of citrus.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with decent carbonation to make it somewhat refreshing.

Overall this is a very nice brewing job. Plenty of flavor is packed into this small beer. Don't expect a full on IPA beer here but definitely give it a shot if you want to sample a nice recipe.

A- Pours a pretty clear golden yellow color with a thin white head. Head is gone in a flash and pretty much no lacing at all.

S- Pretty much picking up all fruity hops and no malts. Usually I'd say this is a good thing but the smell is very very light.

T- Again fruity hops are here but they are very light. A bit of a bready taste is here too.

M- Lighter side of body and carbonation was good.

D- I suppose this is a fairly easy to drink beer. I was a bit disappointed in this one and thought it was rather boring.

Golden body, still, very slight haze. Four fingers of snow white foam. Minimal lacing.

Strong inviting fresh grapefruit and orange aroma.

Light malt base lays a thin coat. Juicy fruit abounds. Hop nip at the swallow. Clean finish.

Light mouthfeel.

Good but not impressive in Beer Geek mode, when its characteristics are under deep scrutiny, by works damn well in its intended role: having one or more when involved in other activities, like fishing or mowing the lawn.
