look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottle: a stumpy 355mL brown bottle with a nice old-school label.

Appearance: pours a crystal clear golden amber with a decent off-white head that sits at one-finger. Minimal lacing.

Aroma: an intensely nose of orange citrus, pine and grass hops. There are some earthen characters in the background too, which is nice.

Taste: follows from the nose, and I am happy to report that unlike most IPAs that have a strong nose, this one also has an even more intense flavour of pine and citrus. Those earthen characters and some malts are around in the background again.

Aftertaste: hangs about for quite a time, with a touch of alcohol to boot. Plenty of hop bitterness. Nice.

Mouth feel: a moderate body with plenty of carbonation.

Overall: a particularly good example of the American IPA style. Plenty of hops up front with just enough presence from the malts and warming alcohol to round it out. At AU$75 a case of 24 x 355mL (2013) it is better value than plenty of less impressive options.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Appearance. Gold, a little hazy and clear.

Smell: Right off the bat I think grass and pine. That's it. At this point, my expectations were lowered.

Taste: I'm liking this. I'm not a fan of bitter IPAs (not sure why anyone would be), but this was not bitter. Nice hoppy flavor (citrus, grapefruit), nice and clean.

Mouthfeel: Very smooth, nice body. Very light. I see why they call it All Day IPA... you could definitely drink it all day, no doubt.

O: Compared to other beers that you can drink "all day", this is one of the best. Not my favorite, but in my top 10 of "all day" beers.
