It's the one of the few IPAs that I can drink honestly, everyday. Drinkable, super drinkable. Loads of flavor, lots of citrus little pine. Amarillo and Centennial hops, they are the ticket

Prefer it in cans, the 15 pack of Founders All Day IPA can almost always be found in my fridge. Excellent, excellent IPA, punches way above its "class/ABV," and is enjoyable one at a time, or eight at a time!

It's so effing drinkable. Goes down smoother than a MillCoorWeiser, with a shit ton of flavor. A++ Founders.

A - Poured Vigoursly into a plain pint glass, awesome carbonation, tons of bubbles rising from the sides and bottom. Has a gorgeous golden blonde color, pretty clear, no sediment floating around. Leaves a nice inch and a half white head with some decent size bubbles. I love the label on this beer, it pretty much it explains the beer to a T. Old station wagon headed to the beach. a 4.7% ipa that tastes like its from Cali.

S - Has a strong west coast aroma, lots of citrus, pine, and floral hop characters with little to no malt aroma at all.

T - No way is this under 5% abv. The hop profile strongly resembles Double Trouble, only thing missing is the strong alcohol taste that double trouble leaves behind. This is much cleaner, and has no alcohol taste. It leaves a refreshing crisp taste. A lot of reviews I've read about this on here mentions a metallic taste but I didn't notice any from the bottle.

M - Wonderful! Very crisp, clean carbonation that is extremely refreshing. If there's a beer out there that makes your mouth water, its this. Obviously since it's only 4.7% there is no warm alcohol feel. A very light viscosity adds to the overall drinkablity of this beer.

O - The name of this beer describes it perfectly. This is exactly what i'm looking for in a session beer. Lots of flavor refreshing mouthfeel and low abv. I could drink a whole six of this while playing a round of golf or fishing with no problem. For your next poker night be sure to grab a six pack of this.

I'm not giving this one a typical review, as I'm rating this one 5 across the board because I love an IPA that, like it's name, I can drink all day and love every since can/bottle. A session IPA to soothe the taste buds and not knock you out with a high alcohol content. Excellent aroma, even better taste, and I'm happy. So this one is right up my alley!

This is my go to beer. Starting last year I have been able to get 15 packs of cans for around 16$. I buy them whenever I can.

Okay I am not a huge fan of IPA beers. Most I don't like but this Founders All Day IPA is good. It has a bitter taste like all IPA's but its not super bitter like most are. It has a light body, even though it isn't a light beer, and is average in beer calories so its very easy to drink. I don't like how you get a choice of both bottles and cans. It kind made me skeptical at first since it was offered in a can but every Founders beer I had so far was good. The cost was decent at $18 for a 15 pack of cans. Bottom line if I want an IPA this will be my first choice.

The best session ipa in my opinion. Fruity and hoppy on the nose but smooth taste.

This beer hits you with a nice floral smell and provides a good hop bite that finishes clean.

Best tasting session IPA I have had. Nice and hoppy full body taste, very smooth finish, I purchase these in 15 pack cans and it's very reasonably priced.

This is an amazing beer. Something that you can truly drink ALL DAY! Hmmm, wonder if that has anything to do with the name of the beer?

Great golden color and very clear. Small inch head that dissipates quickly with mild lacing. Probably one of the reason I enjoyed drinking this beer so much was from the mouthfeel. It was so smooth and light.

It is not an overpowering hoppy IPA, but still has a great hop taste. Minimally bitter. And can be enjoyed ALL DAY as it is a session beer.

Overall: I loved it and would drink it as a go to daily beer. In fact, I might just do that with St. Patrick's Day coming up in Savannah, Georgia in a week!

Can into pint glass.

Awesome amber, golden color. Lacing all the way down.

Glorious hops and malts balanced in the nose.

Wow. Flavor is outstanding

Goes down smooth and easy.

This beer is amazing! Throws down the gauntlet for what a drinkable, clean full of flavor beer should be. All day indeed. Good job Founders. Awesome, awesome beer. Do not miss it. Buy it when you see it.

One of my Top 5 favorite IPA's. Don't let it's low ABV draw you away. Boasts a nice, hoppy, citrus taste you'd expect to find in higher ABV IPA's, however, the lower alcohol volume makes this a perfect "All-Day" IPA :-)

I notice a BIG difference in flavor from the can compared to the bottle... Can (IMO) is the only way to go.

I don't care if this is a 6.5% IPA or a 4.7% IPA. Bottom line it is juicy hop laden treat and one of the best tasting IPA's I've had.

Big fresh citrus aroma of oranges and tangerines. Pineapple mingles in next along with more tropical fruitiness from Mango's and Papaya.

The flavors mimick the aroma....big on juicy citrus fruits ad tropical fruits. Malt is clean and light and gives a nice unobtrusive backing.

Bitterness is held in check but finishes real clean. Body is maybe a little light for an IPA but makes this very drinkable as well. Carbonation is spot on. I could see kicking back a ton of these particularly once they come out in 12 pack cans. This is one of the best IPA's I've had. If you are a sucker for jucicy citrus/tropical fruits in your IPA this one is for you.

One of my favorite beers. Love the grapefruit flavor. Perfect for a hot summers day.

A: Light golden hue. Bubbly white head. A small amount of lacing.

S: A great balance of sweetness along with fruity hops notes.

T: Lots of citrus flavors: grapefruit, lemon and orange. The flavors are perfectly balanced with a slight hop bitterness.

M: Light-bodied with a good amount of carbonation.

O: This stuff is great. Exactly what it says. The kind of beer I could drink all day. I am sure hardcore hopheads will not be satisfied by it, but I see this becoming a beer I keep stocked in the fridge.

Appearance - A darker IPA than some. It pours with a very slight head and seems to be unfiltered.
Smell - The most prominent smell is grapefruit which I especially like in a good IPA.
Taste - Again, the grapefruit takes center stage which is more than adequate for me.
Mouthfeel -Light mouthfeel and a decent amount of carbonation.
Overall - This is a fantastic IPA. This has been my go to beer for the last two outings of a fishing weekend that involves playing long sessions of Texas Hold' Em. Everyone else at the table thinks I'm drinking a 8-9% DIPA and they are drinking 5% Buds. so I think I have a leg up on them.
