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.

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a snifter.
Medium to light amber with minimal head that disappeared relatively quickly.
Aromas were of mild hops, with presence of slightly bready malt background.
Taste was spot on. Mild bitterness with good high notes of citrus hops.
Mouthfeel was fine.
Overall for a 4.7% ABV beer, this had great hop profile and fits the definition of a sessionable IPA.
