Poured a cloudy amber with a short lived head. Aroma is rich and sweet, with strong fruit notes. The taste is a wonderful mix of hop bitterness (pine, citrus) and the tropical fruit, citrus, and pine. Little carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. A great big flavor IPA with a session-able ABV.

I'm behind the Bar at Barleyvine (per usual)
All Day IPA
Founders (i want some kbs. its because everyone else wants it.)
Grand Rapids, Michigan
4.7% abv
IBU-42

Poured into standard pint glass...bottle @ 53* F

A- Wet hay/Golden..lacing nonexistent, quarter inch head that dissipated quickly, slightly hazy.
s-juniper berry action, green apple skin,aloe, fresh cut grass
t-poundable. hops are crisp, not bitter.. more green apple skin business.. true to style and intent. which makes me happy.. nice aftertaste. pairing with a cuban sandwich..the homemade pickle and the hops make great friends. the sweetness of the pork joins the olfactory party.
m-very carbonated... not my favorite trait in the world but again it makes sense.

o- i could see many a summer day that i make at least of 3 of these vanish... for breakfast. great with spicy food... we have a pulled pork sandwich that this would DANCE with. Points for stylistic authenticity.

A: Crisp, clear IPA with little head. There is a small island of soapy white foam in the middle of mine and barely a ring around the edges. Looks lively with bubbles streaming to the top. Light amber body.

N: Having not expected much out of the nose on this one since it is only 40 or so IBUS, I was VERY pleasantly surprised. Straight up west coast grape fruit hoppiness, tropical fruits, a bit of caramel.

T: Very good. Again, with economy model the elements are--such as the IBUS and ABV, I'm pleasantly surprised. Very refreshing, which was to be expected--but also very flavorful. A little toned-down but you get the same floral, grapefruit, perfume character on the taste that you get on the nose. Just slightly subdued.

M: Crisp, clean, refreshing. Perfect for a camping trip, which the bottle seems to depict :)

Sidenote: I just want to say that I'm glad that Founders has made a really good, complex, flavorful beer that I can take to a BBQ or other outdoor long-lasting event and not be a mess. The ABV race to the top gets annoying to craft beer drinkers who want to kick back and enjoy a few but are often limited to splitting a 12 oz. bottle and that's it (unless you want to get sloshed).
