This could be the last beer I ever need to drink. A beer you could spend the rest of your life with.

Friggen store keeps raising the price though. Drive out to Nevada and you can still buy the 15 pack for $16, and no recycling crap attached to it. Great drinking two of these after two scotches. All you need for a good night, besides a good woman.

12oz canned 2-27-23, opened 4-16-23.
2 finger dense off-white head with excellent staying power. Sticky lacing. Glowing, dark golden and clean body. Citrus - orange, lemon and pine in the nose. Oranges on top of doughy malt and a lingering pithy bitterness. Bright entry, light body with medium carbonation. Nice pop of bitterness in a lengthy off-dry finish. Impressive in a sub 5% abv package. Very Good.

If there was a specific ranking class for low ABV IPAs I think this would score considerably higher. But as it is trying, at least here, to stand against other American style IPAs, it falls a little short.
For a sessionable IPA though, it has enough bite to cut the thirst and enough flavor to hold up to a sandwich and fries without getting lost in the mix.
I actually like it for what it is.

Recommended to me by a friend. Don't typically drink IPA's; poured with well rounded foamy head, left good amount of lacing. Fair amount of carbonation, gold color. Aroma and taste too citrusy, piney, and sour IMO. Was easy drinking, but one was more than enough for me. Count me as another person not on the IPA train.

12oz can

Founders All Day IPA poured a clear amber hue and produced a 1-finger off-white head. The head left thin rings of lacing on my pint glass. The smell was of citrus hops, orange and grapefruit. The taste, like the smell was dominated by the citrus hops with a lingering bitterness at the finish. Mouth feel is light to medium with moderate carbonation and is crisp.

This Ale is a session IPA alright.

An above average light beer. Lots of flavor and smell for a 4.7%-er. Hard to rate, because there isn't anything "wrong" with it, but it's not special in any regard. Piney bitter, little (to no) sweetness. Again, there's a noticeable amount of flavor and smell for a 4.7%-er.

There’s a ‘little bit’ of everything a session IPA should have, but not a damn thing that distinguishes it from the rest of the pack.

Everyone else has it pretty much covered. For what I’ll say, there’s quite a lot of additions here to bolster up the smell, taste, and mouthfeel. Flaked corn, wheat, barley, oats. Definitely comes through in the body and finish, body is thicker than any beer at 4.7% should be, crisp finish. Excellent malty, grainy, aftertaste with the weight of a medium bodied beer, despite the beer being a little more sessionable than a full medium-heavy bodied beer . Not particularly bitter, though my tastebuds might be hop fried these days. Founders knows what they’re doing. It’s not unbelievably complex and yet, for a session beer, it also kind of is. Very pleasant stuff.

Yields a slightly clouded golden amber color with a huge, spongy head.

Smells of ripe oranges, papaya and spicy garden herbs among lighter blueberries and fresh cut limes.

Has an utmost refreshing and light mouthfeel to it, due to its well balanced body and fitting, prominent effervescence.

Tastes of malty, slightly resinous caramel among headstrong, bitter hops, leading with unpretentious limes, as well as more subtle exotic fruits. Offers a pleasant bready middle part, with even more pronounced bitter limes, creating an intriguing, yet easy to comprehend and well working interplay. Finishes with a bit more luscious oranges and papaya among rustic bread rind, a note of resin and long lasting, finish defining bitter limes.

This is great! Such a refreshing, perfectly balanced low abv beer with a satisfying complexity is hard to find.

Clear light amber color with a moderate ivory head that sticks around fairly well and produces some nice lacing.
The aroma is light sweet malt with citrus and a touch of pine.
The taste is likewise grapefruit, tangerine, light malt with a dry lingering grapefruit pulp and pine resin finish.
The body is medium, fairly smooth, good carbonation, very drinkable.
Altogether this brew is, as advertised, an excellent session brew, especially during warm weather, light and refreshing, enjoy.

OMG, why have I waited so long to try this beer. Its been out for several years now and it's still the best sessionable IPA I've ever had. Mouth feel is crisp, refreshing, and carbonated. Taste is that of an old school WC IPA, hoppy, malty, with a little pine. This beer is great for day drinking. I'll be keeping my fridge stocked with these guys this summer.

Founders Brewing Co. "All Day IPA"
19.2 fl. oz. can "CANNED ON 03.22.22 21:14:48 1". Sampled on 05.16.22

Notes via stream of consciousness: I'm not sure what happened to the review I already did but at the end of it I said that this was my favorite session IPA. Let's see if that stands the test of time. It's poured a lightly hazy deep gold body beneath a full head of slightly off-white foam. The aroma is citrusy and piney over a delicate and lightly bready malt base. On to the taste... it's basically the same. The malt is lightly sweet, bready, grainy, and biscuity. The hops deliver notes of grapefruit, tangerine, and pine. There's a light touch of hop resin to it as well. The bitterness clocks in at 42 IBUs balancing it and bringing it to a dry, bitter finish with some citrus pith and pine lingering. In the mouth it's medium bodied and crisp. The head held up pretty well and it's left some nice lacing about the glass. In my opinion this is very much a pale ale with extra hops and that's fine with me. It's 4.7% ABV which is .3% below Budweiser (at least in the U.S.), and 140 calories. I've had multiple servings of this over the course of a day (COVID lockdown!) and I can truly say that it continues to deliver. Now, are there pale ales out there that could do the same thing? Of course there are, but this is an easy go to. If you haven't had it I suggest you try it.
