Founders All Day IPA has a fairly thick, foamy, off-white head, a somewhat hazy (suspended sediment), bubbly, burnished gold appearance, and a bit of residual lacing. Aroma is pineapple, hop resin, and white bread. Taste is the same, with moderate bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Founders All Day IPA finishes semi-dry, easy drinking, and refreshing. Overall, an excellent example of a ho-hum style. Elevated price and disappointing presentation, in the overall scheme of things.

I have recently gotten into the "session" IPA realm. I tried the Stone which was amazing for the amount of alcohol. It usually takes more alcohol to boost up the flavor profile but it was great.
This one is not far from that range. Its about the same alcohol content so you can drink a few which is nice.

Appearance: Golden with a little red hue going on, but pretty much a straw yellow.

Smell: Not overly powerful, but there is a good amount of that flora hop aroma there along with some malt sweetness, this one is very balanced in that regard.

Taste: It has the hops but is a bit more sweet than the Stone. It was good, but I still think for this one anyway the Stone edges them out. Which is hard for me to say because I do tend to favor Michigan breweries, now if Bell's could get something going? They may, and I just don't know it yet.

Overall: This is a good beer and one I would go to for sure, especially if the price was right and the price was right on this one. About the same quality and taste as the Stone but less expensive, so in the future I may go for the Founders more often.
