650ml bottle of the recent release. Poured into a Lawson's snifter 10/20/2014.

A- Hazy medium yellow-golden body, two finger frothy white head with long hang time. Lots of thick lacing. Looks par for the course as far as Lawson's pale ales go. [4.25]

S- Strong grapefruit aromas, a bit of nectarine. Tropical fruits. Mild pale malt sweetness. No graininess. Smells excessively resinous, especially for a session IPA. [4.25]

F- Grapefruits, tropical fruit- mango and papaya- with a nice orange-nectarine bite at the end. In between, there is just the perfect amount of pale malt sweetness to balance out the hops such that there is plenty of depth to the sweetness, but without even coming close to overwhelming the hops. Deliciously fruity, not too bitter and not too sweet. Strikes a good balance. [4.5]

M- Medium bodied, not watery at all, which is one of my most common knocks on session IPAs.. this is not the case here. Very substantial, nice and soft mouthfeel with a nice creaminess. Good carbonation. Extremely drinkable. The only bitterness on the finish is a orange-nectarine kick that finishes resinous and dry. [4.5]

O- This is a great session IPA. I wish All Day could be more like this. As it is, the mouthfeel and flavour are quite outstanding in this one. [4.5]
