My go to beer- the new definition of great sessionable American beer. Well balanced with a good kick of hops on the nose and great balanced flavor. I love having a full flavored IPA without the heavy alcohol content!

Pours golden with a half inch white head, which disappeared quickly. Light carbonation, minimal lacing.

Decent hop aroma. Slightly "grassy".

Taste of grapefruit and pine. Light bitterness for an IPA.

Mouthfeel is thin bodied and slightly watery.

This is a good beer, one I could drink all day!

The concept of this session beer was great but the execution in my opinion was not. This is supposed to be a flavorful beer that you can drink all day. There are suck strong fruitiness and piney flavors that I felt a beer with this low of an abv should be flavorful but not too strong. Maybe that’s no what people want, but that is my take on it. Should be quite smoother and a little less bitter.

As advertised. Very good every day lighter craft ale that still comes across as a reasonably full flavored IPA. Has become a regular addition to my summer frig.

Just okay. Drank it all day and could still perform surgery on myself. needed a stitch or three. Taste was good, no buzz though. Liked the fifteen pack, but AbV should be closer to six or seven for me. I need an IPA called divorce or wife eraser or something along those lines. Everclear IPA might do it. The perfect fluid...

The working man's IPA at a great price. Great head on the pour with some lacing. Complex hoppy taste with a crisp, smooth finish...one of of my go-to beers....

Quintessential. Basically the new craft version of Sam Adams' Boston Lager. Its what a "GOOD" or "OK" craft beer should be, and a great gateway craft beer to get macro drinkers into the craft realm.

Decent for a low alcohol IPA. You are definitely sacrificing some flavor from a DIPA, but you know what you are getting, and it is a decent tasting drinkable beer if you are looking to go the distance without getting completely blasted. A good go to for day drinking.

Tallboy 19oz can dated /filled on 5/19/19 -dating cans the right way!
Pours straw gold, nice head....
Not much aromas, but my schnozzola is old...
Tastes crisp fresh dry, but really plain. Like a "station wagon in the midwest" zzzz.
Decent, but just so many better local session ales around, for same or less $
Accept it politely, or find on sale maybe. Not a full price brew in 2019. Over rated

A strong pour from a 12-oz. can (Canned on 4/11/19) raised a finger of fizzy and rocky off-white head with short retention, no lacing. Light haze to a golden straw body with rising bubbles. Hops and grain greet the nose faintly with bread dough and cracker. The taste features toasted malt, lemon, apple, grain and grass with a pronounced hop bite. Semi-dry, a hint of malty sweetness is replaced by hop bitterness and peppery spice. Quick and clean at the finish, the hop/spice bite lingers a while. Medium light body, a little below average carbonation, smooth and light yet flavorful. The malt and grains(wheat+oats?) are well blended and contribute to the body. Alcohol is well hidden in the spice.

Pours a clear honey golden with a quick receding head.Looks more like a pale ale. Smells like an IPA, taste is not bad. Feels well built. Nice carbonation. Overall I gave it 4 across the board. Not too thrilled they used corn. Probably 90% of our corn is tainted with Monsanto herbicides and pesticides. AKA; "roundup corn"

Hazy amber, not so much foam.
Quite fresh smell, citrus (grapefruit), a hint of camomile. Without peaks.
Less citrus in the taste, more resinuous. But very simple, without any peak.
Done to be easily drinkable, so it is.

The name IPA is simply being abused. When opened and poured the beer does have a pale ale look and the smell of fresh hops abounds but then you actually taste it. Perhaps I should have read the can and maybe I would not have bought it. IPA is: Barley, Water & assorted hops with an above average ABV. This has corn, wheat, oats in addition to barley WHY?Why then does this sweet weak and bland syrup get to be called an IPA? Sorry but it is simply awful to the taste. I like to try the numerous USA beers on sale in the UK and some are very good - this should not have been allowed to have been exported.

This beer sucks, & founders is a great brewery.

Not sure why you’d wanna drink an ipa that tastes like its cut with Budweiser at best, it tastes like a sly bartender poured half a Pabst in my ipa

Canned on 4-16-19. Clear gold pour, white top with weak lace and retention. Apple, plum, citrus, pine, floral aspects from the hops and fruity ale yeast, backed by a substantial honey biscuit malt. Slightly sweet finish. Low bitterness, well balanced, easily sessionable. Hits the mark. Good summertime ale, and would be a nice gateway beer for those who aren't ready for a big IPA.

Served from the bottle into a 16 oz (473 ml) conical pint at Carson's American Bistro in Ann Arbor, Michigan; bottled 04/10/19.
A: Pours a nearly clear, golden-orange-light copper with emphasis on the former, a less than one finger, spotty, white head, low retention, but decent rings sticky lacing.
S: Aromas of nectarine (first), orange/tangerine, and caramel.
T: Semisweet (lightly so). Flavors follow the nose fairly closely. Bitterness solid and consistent with the contemporary take of the style.
M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, but persistence of fairly large bubbles.
O: A very enjoyable and easily quaffable take on the AIPA. I wouldn't say no to another.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 19.2oz can

Appearance - Pours a copper amber with three fingers of frothy white head.

Smell - piney, leafy, weedy, earthy, and floral hops, bready malts, caramel, pine resin, grapefruit peel, and earthy yeast.

Taste - pine, leafy, earthy, and floral hops upfront. The pine resin and grapefruit peel come through next. The bready malts, caramel, and earthy yeast finish off the brew.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Finishes slightly off-dry with the hops, pine resin, and malts lingering.

Overall - A classic West Coast session IPA that delivers on both the flavour and sessionability fronts. A bold and flavourful brew that I could easily enjoy at anytime of the year.

Clear rich gold with fluffy one finger near white head. The smell is a pleasant balance of sweet malt with lemon, pine, melon, pineapple, grass. The soft pine is foremost in the flavor, the other hop characteristics and malt playing a supporting role. Some lingering toastiness. Mildly bitter (like many other "session IPAs" this is really more of an APA). There mouthfeel is thin to medium thin. Drinkable and smooth, but I wouldn't call it crisp.

This is an underrated IPA. It is smooth, goes down easily, yet has a kick. If this beer had a higher ABV, it would undoubtedly be rated over a 4. Good beers too often get rated lowly for lacking the booze.

I like the option of drinking a good ipa with lower alcohol. Not the greatest, but good for it’s niche. I couldn’t detect any particular smell, and it feels thin, but tastes good.

Great density, great fruit, great fruit and hop balance, for a session IPA it has a great depth of flavor. Nice amber-orange color, a full hoppy flavor, and a worthy beer to drink, eat or cook with. I want to say its a solid session beer but its beyond solid. You can't go wrong. If you like IPA's in any capacity you WILL appreciate this beer.

(This review is written after the can exploded all over my table) The beer is a golden color with a very foamy head. I get a nice aroma of bready malts off the bat followed by a minor pine smell. The flavor is very light and very drinkable (guess thats why its a session ipa). The pine flavor and bread malts are there but very light. The beer has a nice fresh crispness to it.

OK I am becoming an IPA fan after years of resistance. Tried the Founders All Day and quite frankly, could drink this all day. It’s flavor is not too bitter or over powering and it taste good from the first gulp till the last. This is under priced and probably the best kept secret in the IPA world. Buy it.... drink it.... repeat!!!

Pours with minimal white head, light amber color. Smell is bready malts up front and some pine hops. The beer is crisp, light, and has a piney hop flavor profile up front with bready maltiness in the background. Overall, enjoyable beer, it reminds me of a classic hoppy pilsner.

Very hoppy smell, but not super hoppy on the flavor. Somewhat smooth tasting. Smells slightly citrus, but mostly pine and wood. If I had to guess the IBU based on taste I would say 6% or more, but its only 4.7%.
