355ml bottle poured into tulip 28/5/12 bottle sent out by liamt07 cheers dude

A clear golden liquid with lots of slow bubbles feeding a finger of foam that quickly falls to a thin film leaving just a couple random patches of lace

S big nose on a small beer, tropical fruits, tangerine, mango, pineapple, some melon a little lemon and lime with some faint pine and some caramels

T a slight herbal aspect with a little more pine and rind then I could smell, still solid but the nose was better

M somewhat light but far from thin, good pinprick carbonation a little grit left behind on my gums

O pretty nice offering that I could drink all day, a session ale indeed, not a big palate wrecker but very easy to drink and lots of hop character

no complaints with this one other then the fact I can't find it in my home town, thanks again liamt07 for sending me this one

Bottle from Siciliano's, 330ml into a tulip. Bottled May 5, 2012.

Clear golden orange with a finger of white head. Moderate retention and good lacing. Nose of bright citrus fruits, a bit of sugary malt and slight grassy/herbal/dank hoppiness in there too. Taste has only a glimpse of the citrus before opening up into some toasty grains and more prominent herbal and grassy notes. Light sweetness but bitterness prevails. Light body and genuinely 'poundable' (hence the "All Day" title?). Medium light carbonation. A solid IPA, wish there weren't so many other things I wanted to buy when I was in Michigan, more of this would have been acquired.

Bottled on 5/5/12...

A: Pours a clean translucent light yellow. There is a full finger of pure white foam that settles fairly quickly over time. I'm only getting a bit of lacing as it drinks.

S: The nose is crisp, clean, slight citrus, and pine. It packs a punch for a 4.7% brew. There are way more hop characteristics than I would have expected.

T: Boom! Pine and Lemons! Wow. This is solid. It's super light and super flavorful. This has to be the king of session beers. It's just so damn light, and so damn flavorful.

M: Light bodied beer. The flavors are remarkable. It's super refreshing, clean, crisp, and delicious.

O: This is one of the best (if not the best) lower abv beers I've ever had. It's just so flavorful and drinkable. I could pound these stubby bottles all day, and that's the point. Heading home after a long day of work, and cracking this beer open on a hot summer night on the deck is something to look forward to.

5/18/2012 and 5/20/2012

On tap at URGE.

A: Dark yellow with a white frothy head. Poured nearly to the top of the glass so not much head action.

S: Floral with mild orange and grapefruit aromatics. Restrained hop profile. Some biscuity malt. Light but bright.

T: Grassy and clean with light orange and grapefruit rind notes. Bread is faint and biscuity with cracker notes. Smooth lower moderate bitterness and dry.

M: Upper light body with upper medium carbonation.

Overall: Very light and pretty simple, but very drinkable and quite enjoyable on this warm day. I'm glad I came back to try this again as I could hardly taste it after drinking a couple Double IPAs on Friday night. Though, All Day Pale Ale would be a more fitting name for this beer.

12oz. bottle poured into a nonic.

(A)- Pours an orange color. Some white froth and lace.

(S)- A nice dry piney lemon lime citrus. Hints at subtle caramel malt.

(T)- Again, a nice piney citrus and subtle malt profile. Straightforward, but good.

(M)- A good carbonation level and balance. Subtle citrus and caramel malt.

(D)- Its nothing to write home about, but definitely another solid IPA from the midwest.

Served on tap at Founders.

A: Pour was fairly translucent copper with a thin white fuzzy head that broke down to splotches and a thin film.

S: Earthy hops, flower, pine, malt, grains, and citrus scents.

T: A nice balanced drink that has some juicy citrus sweetness to it, finishing with nice bitter hops without getting out of hand. A nice flavor complex of spice, hops, malt, and citrus.

M: Massively refreshing and easy to drink. Lighter body with complex warming and aftertastes.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Pours a light orange-yellow with a 1/2 finger head that slowly dissipates
S: Has a nice hoppy bite, pine and grapefruit, along with fresh light grain
T: Matches the mouth- hoppy with floral notes and light malt. Surprisingly long finish.
M: Light-bodied & crisp
O: Easy to drink, low abv yet packed with flavor make this a winner. I only bought one bottle to try it but will definitely be getting more.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Apperance: Clear and pale, looks like a pils. Pours a one finger head, with evident carbonation; it recedes quickly.

Aroma: Refreshing hops, not too strong, not too weak. Some floral aromas.

Taste: Quite light, but nice and tasty hops. Fairly dry finish with some light hops in the aftertaste. Pleasant and refreshing.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, medium to high carbonation.

Overall: A very nice session ale. It hasn't been overdone, just a plain and simple, robust but light ipa.
