Simply the worst thing that I've ever put in my mouth. And I have great respect for Founders; I like their Curmudgeon and Dirty Bastard ales very much. But All Day has a funky, sulfurous aroma that reminds me of body odor of the worst kind and its taste closely follows the smell. But I see that All Day has gotten some enthusiastic reviews so quality is clearly all in the eye (or the nose, or the mouth) of the beholder.

I know that I have a profound aversion to Simcoe hops - it astounds me that there are people in the world who like them - and All Day is Simcoe-heavy. But AD is a blend of Simcoe and Amarillo hops. I have to assume that I detest Amarillo hops just as much. For me, this is the worst of both worlds.

I can't tell you how much I was looking forward to this IPA. I haven't been let down by Founders yet. Unfortunately all good things must come to an end. I was expecting a light, refreshing summer beer with Founders All Day IPA. What I got was something that tasted like body odor in a bottle. That's really the best way I can describe it. Is it the type of hops they used? Was it the ditch weed that was mixed in? Did my bottle of beer go bad? I don't know. All I know is that I didn't like the cut of this beer's jib.

I drank it straight from an ice cold bottle, so I can't tell you what it looked like. The smell was hoppy. The taste as soon as it hits the tongue is refreshing at first with a decent amount of carbonation. But as soon as it begins to go down the gullet that bitter aftertaste starts, overwhelming the senses. It's like a skunky beer....not like it went bad but as if skunk was part of the ingredients. The taste lingers erasing any memory of that initial refreshing gulp. That aftetaste ruined this beer for me.

I'm not an expert on IPAs and I'll admit they're not my first choice when drinking, but I can dig a good IPA. All Day IPA did not taste good to me. Mark it up to my bad taste if you must, but I will never buy this beer again. I still love you Founders, just not this beer.
