All Day IPA
12 oz brown bottle
Served in a 20 tulip glass

Pours a light copper orange with some yellow highlights on the bottom of the glass. A thin white circle for a head forms along the top of the pour. Random patterns of sticky lace cling to the glassware.

Floral aroma with some citrus whiffs and a baked vanilla cookie.

Toasted biscuit malt backbone with a pleasant citrus blast that opens and brightens the profile of this IPA. Subtle hints of lemon tart and orange juice sweetness each sip. The carbonation level is great too. A well crafted IPA that has an excellent drinkability level.

It's refreshing to have an enjoyable IPA that doesn't overpower the taste buds with an aggressive hop finish. This offering by Founders is appropriately named a "session ale" because I'm ready to pour another freshy.

Finishing up the 6-pack, bottle date looks like 2/15/13.

Pours into a pint a hazy pale orange with a white head

Nice hop forward scent with decent strength. Earthy, grassy and tropical hops

Taste also brings a nicer plethora of hops, more well-rounded than the smell overall. Weed, earth, citrus, grapefruit and tropical notes all make their mark on the palate. Malt is definitely the lesser extreme with just a bit of bread/biscuit coming in a the end.

Pretty good mouthfeel, a little high on the carbonation. Light but not too light.

For whatever reason, I enjoyed this last bottle much more than the rest of the 6. Definitely lots of good hop flavor for a low ABV beer, I think I would prefer Lagunitas DayTime for a session IPA though.

A-darkish gold with a stable cream colored head

S-yes, a fist full of grapefruit...exactly what I'm looking for. Strong scent.

T-comes in with a light flavor of cooked vegetables, corn, and a hint of grapefruit. Very crisp and tasty. Lasting flavor of vegetables.

M-medium creamy carbonation with a creamy finish

O-I really wouldn't say this is an IPA. It's just not hoppy an bitter enough. I really like it, but I did like the Lagunitas Daytime better.

Pours out really bubbly and clear with a slight yellow tint. Two fingers of white suds adorn the glass. Not a lot of lacing.
Smell is piney hops and wonderful grapefruit hints with just a tad of malt sugar.
Taste is a slight pine tar with lemon peel and grapefruit rind. Quaffable as all get out.
Mouthfeel is very clean and not sticky at all. However there is a black pine bitterness that lingers in the palate for quite some time.
Overall this is a great beer. Great for lawn mowing. Great for frisbee golf. Great for fishing. Just great.

3.58/5  rDev -7%

12oz bottle poured into a New Belgium globe.

A: Crystal clear golden-amber. One inch of bubbly white head settles quickly. Thin, scraggly rings of lacing.

S: Mango, clementine, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, lemon peel. Subtle hints of resiny hop oil and grapefruit rind. Very mild peppery scent.

T: Grainy. Melon rind, tropical fruits, clementine, lemon peel. Thin resiny impression. Bone dry. Extremely dry and abrupt grainy finish with some hollow tropical hop flavors.

M: Very light. Stiff carbonation cuts through and lifts the already feather-light body even more. Slight creaminess, but it feels like I'm drinking air.

O: I'm going to start by saying that I think the concept of the session IPA is dumb. I haven't had one yet that I can say I truly enjoyed. This is no different. The nose is great, but it falls flat from there. It's just the nature of the style. There isn't enough body and malt backbone. It feels emaciated and hollow. That's the price you pay for the lower abv.

Appearance: Clear gold, ok head.

Smell: Grapefruit rind, somewhat mild.

Taste: Starts with a mild breadiness, then hits hard with citrus bitterness that turns almost to an aspirin pill-like dryness. The dryness/astringency doesn't stick around long though.

Mouthfeel: Light feel, the dryness makes me want to drink more.

Overall: All Day IPA showed up in Minnesota so I grabbed a sixer. It is definitely a bitter and dry IPA, and the lightness means I could have several in a sitting. Unfortunately I don't really like IPAs quite this bitter, a little more sweetness would be nice. But then it would probably be above 5%.

All day IPA pours a frosty copper color, with a very small head. Their is a strong malty/hoppy floral aroma mixed, very unique. The taste is much of the same strong sharp maltyness, with strong floral bites. Very full flavors, nice strong body. Overall its not bad, very unique, maltier then other IPAS.
