look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Dogfish Head snifter.

A: Aggressive pour leads to a half-finger head. The lacing on this one was thick and plentiful.

S: Lots of hops in the nose, piney resin standing in front of citrus hops make it a delicious nose. Certainly the highlight of the beer.

T: Delicate malt in the foreground, piney hops take over midway and don't let go.

M: Crisp finish, lots of carbonation. A bit bitter on the aftertaste.

O: Decent IPA, would drink a lot of these at a party or on a hot day.

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, slightly hazed copper coloring with a thin, low profile white head that quickly disappears. The nose is very fresh hop forward, with a steady dose of bitterness and resin, with an underlying sweetness of citrus fruit and caramel to balance. Flavors are much lighter than the nose would hint at. Rich caramel and tart grapefruit on the forward tongue, with a peppery dry hops characteristic immediately following. Peppery and bitter aftertaste, with some resiny properties. Mid-bodied, with a slightly dry, slightly effervescent finish. Very easy to drink, which from the title was what they were going for.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass

A: Not bad for a "session" IPA, fairly deep copperish orange, with a sizable head and some lacing.

S: Wow! Kind of like having a pine tree shoved up your nose. I honestly could not pick up anything other than pine-resiny hops. Not necessarily a bad thing, but somewhat unexpected.

T: Um ... Yuck? There is some strongly dominant flavor happening here that I just can't identify. But whatever it is, it ain't good. Given the nose, I would have expected this to have a more hop-forward flavor, and maybe that's what it is, but it ain't like any hops I've ever tasted before.

M: Nothing special, but it is sufficiently carbonated and light enough to be refreshing.

O: I'm pretty disappointed in this one. I'm a big fan of what Founders does and I was really looking forward to my first "All Day." I love IPAs and the thought of being able to consume an extra one or two at a sitting without falling down was very appealing. Unfortunately, this just isn't a beer I want to consume more than one of -- and even one is likely to be too many. This is the oddest tasting IPA I've ever tried. Maybe it will grow on me with time, and I have another 5 to test that hypothesis. But right now, I'm not too optimistic.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Golden with good lacing. An appetizing ale.

Smell: Pear and pineapple. I especially like the pear, but this is a bit sour.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Extremely bitter, and not in a good way. Skunked pine cones. It is smooth, but definitely flat.

Overall Drinkability: I can officially say I've found a Founders beer I don't like. They say every dog has its day. Whatever the opposite of that saying is...this is it for Founders.
