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.

It’s not exciting, but it doesn’t need to be. It’s fresh, bright, crisp, refreshing, low alcohol, everything it should be. I gave the look a 5 not necessarily for the beer, but the art work on the can. One of my favorite beers of all time.

Look - poured into a 5 oz tasting glass. dark golden in color, slightly hazy, with not much head but moderate lacing.

Smell - a balance of citrus (both orange and grapefruit) and pine on the nose, along with a bit of sweet malty fragrance.

Taste - light on the palate. moderately hopped with a robust malty backbone that balances well. citrusy hops are detectable on the tongue, but focus is more on flavor rather than bitterness. finish is smooth with lingering hoppy fragrances.

Feel - light bodied, average carbonation, and low ABV at 4.7%.

Overall - this beer is everything as advertised: a sessionable, good tasting IPA that is easy to drink and easily enjoyable by anyone.

It lives up to its claims and available moderately priced at my local grocery store.

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a glass.
The All Day IPA has a nice golden amber color with a good head.
Citrusy aroma, including orange and tangerine with a touch of grapefruit.
The grapefruit and orange flavors come through nicely, but after each sip you're left with an astringent dryness on your tongue.
Light to medium body, perfect for a session beer
It's drinkable, but after one or two the astringency definitely has me wanting to switch to something else.

Nice mid-hopped moderate ABV IPA. It's called a Session IPA for a reason. Satisfies the IPA hoppiness without blowing you away with bitterness. Purchase 15-pack of cans from Foundry Wines & Spritis in Owings Mills, MD.

Bottle to pint glass. Bottled 9/1/2021.

L: Clear, copper colored, moderate head with good lacing.
S: Pretty light, mostly grassy/floral hops.
T: Stronger version of the smell; light hop flavors, nothing too overpowering.
F: Dry, a little resiny.
O: Nothing extraordinary but a good beer for sessioning at the bar or in the backyard.

Sweet floral and citrus on the pour, medium sharp tang on the tongue that settles into a slightly-bitter pinewood taste. Subtle malt flavor in the background. A nice step up from an APA for the recent hops voyagers out there, and a decent "all day" for the rest of us.

Not sure if my bottle was on a shelf to long, but did not taste like others say. Smell saw hoppy but not intense. Had a woody taste added to a cardboard finish.

From a 19.2 oz. can, 5 months old. Light cloudy amber color. Aroma is a citrus variety, I’m not going to tell you what you will smell.
Taste is light and extremely crushable. This is the drawback to me, I don’t want to drink “all day.” Feel is one of moderate carbonation.
This would be a good introduction to folks that aren’t familiar with the IPA style. I ❤️ Founders.

Standard IPA, perhaps a bit light in flavor but pretty much matches the label. You can in fact sitting around and drink this all day due to it's easy drinking and light ABV. Nothing special however.

Pints on tap, cans and bottles. First tried in 2011. Today a 19.2oz can with a traditional pint glass.
L: Pours a golden amber almost clear with a thinner spongy off-white head that falls fast to a milky skin. Good carbonation, some skeletal random lacing.
S: Grassy, soft dank biscuit, light citrus.
T: Light grapefruit, tangerine, cracker, bread crust and pine, caramelized malts, lemon rind and piney hop resin. Medium bitterness and is clean overall. The pine taste, being the core of this ale, has the malts wrapped around itself.
F: Light-bodied, semi-juicy and lightly drying mouthfeel. It is crisp with a medium length finish, is lightly sticky and has a wide feel.
O: Hop forward, well balanced, non-aggressive and lighter in body this session ale is packed with flavor. An inviting and delicious tasting beer with a pacifying overall taste and feel. It is excellent in it's style.

De color anaranjado, con una leve espuma de retención media. Cuerpo medio y ligera carbonatación. Aroma lupulado y notas cítricas. En boca es cítrica, con sensación astringente, y un final a lúpulo.

19.2oz can. Medium amber color with nice off white head, good lacing. Straight forward ipa. There is a bit of sweet malt, piney hops with a bitter backside. This is an ipa for all day drinking. If you want malt look elsewhere. For me there’s too much pine but fine for the style.
