Meh, hop water, the first sip was great bit fizzled more into what I expected. I definitely think for session beers it's probably excellent but eh I'd rather just not have IPA at all if I'm concerned about ABV at this point. That's just me though like I get why they make this in 15 packs, I think All Day Vacay might be more suited to me, hopefully I can try that soon.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a royal gorge souvenir pint glass. Looks like an IPA. Smells like an IPA. Tastes like an IPA that lacks backbone. There should probably be a different style classification for this watery half-assed mess. IPA requires a hearty malt backbone to back up the hop bitterness.

I like this. I'll drink it again but it's not IPA. It's more like a heavily hopped kolsch.

A good IPA fucks your mouth and this one attempts to make love, only succeeding in creating want.

3.34/5  rDev -14.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

Canned on 10-13-20.
Clear, amber-gold color, low, white head and slow, occasional big carb bubbles rising supports a cap of foam. Wispy lace remains drape onto a dense ring hugging the glass.
Sweet floral hop aroma with tangerine jam and hints of honey. A swirl brings up the bubbles and the hop nose.
Flavors are timid and weak. This is better fresh on tap. This can tastes a bit pasty - malt sweetness and body are no where to be found. This does not taste like the same beer I've had on tap a couple times/years ago.
Decent hop flavor and mild bitterness but no malt to compliment, no grain complexity, just a clean, sorta hoppy light pale ale.
Almost harsh, astringent bitter aftertaste.
Ya know, just because you call something an IPA to get sales doesn't mean it's an IPA.
If you really care about making a session ale less than 5%, try focusing on the grain and malt bill and make a SPA or Bitter or Special Bitter or even a Mild. Just throwing more hops in the brew kettle doesn't make a beer an IPA.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the 19.2oz can into an imperial pint glass.

A: The beer is a pure clear orange color with lots of streams of carbonation within. Head was 2 fingers, foamy, and slightly off-white.

S: Light aroma of citrus zest balanced barely by some crackery malt. Hint of pine. Mostly citrus peel.

T: Typical profile for IPA. Good amount of citrus peel, a hint of sappy bitterness. More on the hoppy side for sure. Slight bread malt backbone but just barely. Light.

A very typical IPA, but indeed sessionable. Nothing to think too hard about... almost forgettable, which is kind of the point isn't it? Nice for summer.

Poured from a 19 oz stovepipe. Golden amber color with decent head. Watery, hoppy taste that's both refreshing and satisfying. One of the better "pound-able" beers I've tasted. Not to quibble, but it's really a 'pale ale' instead of a 'session ipa". For what it is, it's really good.

L: Having it from the can. It has a feel-good label that I wouldn't want them to change.

S: Hops.

T: Two-row barley, oats, and copious amounts of hop extract.

F: Exceedingly bitter, which helps distract from the mass produced feel.

O: It works. Plus, I don't see anyone making anything better.

This isn't anything flashy, but it's a really nice, quite hoppy low ABV session IPA, great for a warm summer afternoon. Pours a nice amber/golden color, slight, short-lasting head. Smells both of malt and hops. This isn't going to rock your world if you're a hop-head, but if you're looking for a crisp, IPA-bitter summer beer that you can drink all afternoon and still function working the grill, this is at the top of my list. Very nice!

This compares to Bells light hearted ale. This is what you want if you love that American IPA bitterness and flavor but don't want a ton of calories or alcohol. You could drink these all day like you would a traditional light lager but the experience is far more enjoyable. I'll pack my cooler with these this summer.

I believe there are about 5 World-Class Session IPA's.
This is no doubt one of them!
If you're a hardcore IPA'er or if you're just a hot summer day, Coors lite sippin' neophyte, give this one a try.
I drink about one thousand of these during the summer up here in Michigan. Good stuff!

When poured this has a fantastic amber color. Very appealing look. Smells bready malty and hoppy. Taste wise is just a less hoppy version of your typical IPA, which I like because I don’t love hop flavor that much. Refreshing when ice cold. Overall a good sessionable brew from Founders (no surprise here)

Looks like an ipa, smells like an ipa. Ok feel in the mouth. Works as a session beer. Having had this a few times, sometimes it is more satisfying than others. I'll say that's on my palate, not the qc.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Overall hits the spot. Medium finish with lingering bitterness. From a can packaged six months ago. Better after it warms up slightly from the fridge.

Look: Like it should, good white foam light gold color, appropriate carbonation.
Smell: Mostly pine, touch of caramel malt.
Taste: Resinous bitterness, caramel malt presence, bread crust.
Feel: Carbonation pushes beer to sides of mouth, semi dry with lingering bitterness.
Overall: Refreshing after a day of hard work, can put down a couple and still be able to get up and walk. IPAs aren’t my go to anyway, this wouldn’t be my first choice, but can definitely see where it should fit in the rotation.

Can from BevMo San Jose.
~2 months old in refrigerator so thought I’d give it a chance.
L: clear, caramel, fizzy, minimal-moderate head.
S: toffee, weak pine?
T: Toffee, caramel, resiny bitterness.
F: medium to thin. Appropriate.
Overall: Light ipa. I have no problem with this. I like how it was sold in a 20oz can though. Tastes similar to many Midwest ipa’s (Floyd’s, founders, bells). Balanced. More malt-forward.

Pours a really cool hazy orange color with a nice white head. Smells very floral & piney right off the top, earthy notes as well. This beer has a perfect amount of hoppy bite that balances out very well with the malts. Medium-bodied beer, pretty thin. This is simply a crisp & clean IPA, a damn good one. You can sit back & session on this beer with ease.

This beer has a lot. Great taste, smell, body and lacing. It goes down smooth foe a session IPA yet has more body that any other session on the market. This not a beer you want to shotgun or chug at a party. This is a beer you want to sip on and enjoy for what it is, a damn good beer.

3.77/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Look: Semi-clear orange with a nice head forming that pulls back to ½ finger, leaving decent lacing
Aroma: Citrus fruits, a little pine, some fir notes, and light bready malt as well
Taste: Mainly citrus fruits (lemon-led) and a little pine sap to close. Sweet malt notes come into play and mingle as well. A little bite with some astringency in the finish and quite dry as well
Mouthfeel: Not bad considering the style – pretty full, a little slick, medium-high carbonation and dry on the finish.
Overall: This is solid and definitely one of the better examples of a ‘session IPA.’ More malt presence than expected, good hop flavors, and a decent finish. These 15-packs lend well for a camping/fishing beer and this one fulfilled that role nicely. Not usually a style I dig as many are too watery/light and lacking malt presence but this is a solid effort

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Nearly clear orange beer with a pillowy 1 finger white head that leaves good lacing down the glass. The hops on the nose are floral and citrusy, maybe a touch tropical. Touch of malts up front with nice little punch of hop flavor in the middle that finishes with a pleasant lingering bitterness. The hop flavors that come through are earthier than the nose suggested they would be, but with an almost tropical juiciness that can be detected as well. It's a nice mix of flavors and fun to break down, but also the malt bill can't quite hold up to them and the beer tends to finish overly bitter and feels pretty weak and unbalanced. This of course is what they were going for, but without the balance, sessionability can be negatively effected due to the richness of those hops. It is a nice substitute for a bigger beer if thats what the occasion calls for, but as a standalone beer, I would rather reach for something with some more balance. Hard to knock it too much though -- it certainly packs more flavor than most lower abv IPAs.

Poured from a can -have several and the dates are all smudged so not sure if it's fresh. Nose is mildly piney and dank. Taste follows in a really mellow way , me thinks " IPA lite" or something like that. Finishes smooth and easy with just the slightest bitterness. This is exactly what it claims to be.

Have had this brew many times. Great beer for the golf course or beach, because of low ABV. Still tastes like an IPA, & this is usually only about $15 per 15-pack.

After years of enjoying All Day, I’ve just accepted the fact that this is my summertime craft go to. Checks all the boxes for me: hops, bitterness, balanced malt, crisp, refreshing, crushable. I always have a 15pk or two in the house. Truly an excellent all-around beer!

Bought a 15-pack cans $15.99 Target.
82 days old
Clear golden-amber color
Medium-light mouthfeel
Medium-high carbonation
Come citrus orange taste, light bitterness finish
Overall a nice session beer. Especially for the price at Target. $20.99 at Whole Foods so don't buy it from there.
