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.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a moderately clear amber color. The head is about one finger high and white, with a somewhat rough-looking texture. It retains itself alright, though, and leaves some lacing on the side of the glass.

S: I've noticed how I kind of like catty IPAs, and this one fits that mold. The hops also provide melon, mango, and herbal notes. There is a touch of sweetness, as well.

T: The first sip strikes me weirdly with its finishing herbal hop tones. After another sip, it smooths out nicely. There are twinges of juicy tropical fruits on the front end; I wish this was more pronounced. Otherwise, it's a simplistic, enjoyable small IPA.

M: I look for these kind of beers to be crisp and light - and this fits that criteria well. I'd enjoy it more if some of the finishing astringency was cleaned up a touch, but this still has good drinkability.

O: Good, not great. As much as I love trying these session IPAs, there's only one so far I can say I loved (DayTime). Not to mention, session IPAs don't make a huge amount of sense from a monetary standpoint. Having said that, between All Day and Centennial, I'd choose this one every single time.

I have had better IPAs but none that were this low alcohol/sessionable. This beer brings big flavor with an easy swilling alcohol profile. This one should be in cans!!!

Pours a hazy golden amber color with an average size white head and head retention. Leaves some lacing.

Good hoppy smell, mostly citrus but some piney as well.

Taste is good. Very hoppy, mostly citrus, the tangerine reminds me of Legend DIPA (2011....the 2012 stinks!!!)

Mouthfeel is a hair thin, but what do you expect for under 5.00%

This is a good sessionable beer. I will be buying more this summer.

Pours pale orange with a decent white head. Not much retention, and the head is a bit fizzy. Some lace.

Big fruit aroma right up front, with orange, citric notes, maybe even some apricot. Toasted malt in the background.

Fruity, malty, and citric bitterness up front. All within balance. Toasted malt has just the right amount of sweetness and depth, while hop qualities actually support the malt. Hoppy goodness stays on the palate to the finish.

Medium bodied, good carbonation.

A winner. One of my favorite IPAs . Easy to drink, tasty, and complexly balanced.

12oz can poured into a snifter 9/4/2014. Have had this multiple times, not sure why I never got around to reviewing this.

A- Slightly hazy medium golden body, one finger white head with good retention time and plenty of rings of lacing. [3.75]

S- A slight touch of grainy malt, plenty of piney, leafy and a bit of citrus hop aromas though. For the most part this is pretty dang hoppy, with as little malt as they can get away with. [3.75]

F- Pine, resin, a bit of grapefruit, tangerines and a little bit of caramel. This is noticeably light on the malt backbone, which is of course the whole point behind this beer. Plenty of hops to be found here. [3.75]

M- Medium in body, not noticeably thinner than any other standard IPAs. This is Founders' biggest achievement here, to be honest- a 4.7% IPA that isn't thin at all with plenty of hop aromas. [4]

O- One of the better session IPAs out there; this is very good with plenty of hops for the hophead that can be consumed in as large quantities as you want at its 4.7% ABV. [4]

Final score: 3.825

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.

A - Minimal (less than a finger's worth) snowy white slightly lush crisp head... The head quickly fizzes away leaving a full veil of slightly frothing lacing and moderate collar... Loads of moderate to rapid paced swirling carbonation... The color is a pale golden straw color with a slight glowing amber hue... A slight bit of lacing clings to the glass...

S - A very inviting complex hoppy nose that is far from overpowering... Grapefruit... Orange zest... Some floral hops... A very light malt base comprised of graham crackers and biscuit...

T - An enjoyable bitterness to start... Lots of piney and floral hop notes... Lemon zest... A light pale malt base barely registers... The bitterness is even and consistent throughout...

M - Light to medium bodied... Limited carbonation... Ever so slightly on the thin side... Goes down easily with each and every sip...

D - This is an ideal alternative to the not so hoppy spring and summer seasonal offerings... Highly quaffable... Quite refreshing... Simple, but with a enough depth, character, and complexity to keep it interesting and enjoyable... Not my favorite Founders offering, but one that has a spot in my spring/summer rotation... I would have no problem drinking several of these in a sitting, but I guess that's the point...

Poured from a bottle into a Gulden Draak tulip

A- pours a transparent light orange with a one finger white head. Fades pretty fast, leaves a nice white film on the beer

S- holy cat pee. Must be a decent bit of simcoe in this one.

T- starts off with some citrus, finish is sightly bitter. Not a lot of extreme flavors with this one, but I wasn't really expecting any

M- body is pretty light, especially for an IPA. Solid

O- easy drinking beer, but not something I'd drink by the gallon at the price point. You can get better IPAs for less money, and that unfortunately puts a hole in the whole sessionable aspect of this
