It's the one of the few IPAs that I can drink honestly, everyday. Drinkable, super drinkable. Loads of flavor, lots of citrus little pine. Amarillo and Centennial hops, they are the ticket

Did a blind taste test with this against some formidable non session ipas and chose this. This is now my go to session beer. Can be hard to find fresh in NE but will always pick up if under two months old. Props to the obvious 'packaged on' date on the outside of the 15 pack. Founders certainly gets it.

It's so effing drinkable. Goes down smoother than a MillCoorWeiser, with a shit ton of flavor. A++ Founders.

The best session ipa in my opinion. Fruity and hoppy on the nose but smooth taste.

This beverage is straw-gold in color. It smells STRONGLY of hops. The hops smell kind of hits you in the face. The taste is strongly of hops, but it is not overwhelmingly bitter even though it has bitter notes. The body is good light-medium. For as hoppy as it is, it is fairly drinkable. For the type of beer it is, it is done well. It is just not my style.

Oh I love this IPA! It is a bright golden yellow and a little cloudy. It smells of hops and is really crisp. It is easy too drink and for being an IPA it isn't terribly bitter. It actually tastes pretty amazing. It is really refreshing!

Look! This is not the tastiest beer in the lot. But, if you want a step up from lawn mower beer with some taste and some body, then this is your dude. If you are 30yo+ and want to get drunk and don't want your wife/friends/neighbours to think you are still a college jackass with your bud lights and millers, yet still want to tune at least 12-24 of these bitches, then this is your new go to. Light, has hops, not to rounded, but cant complain since the 18 pack comes in at only $17.99 here in Ohio.

For someone who isn't a fan of IPA's, this was a contradiction. Light body but still plenty of hopp flavor. Goes down smooth to allow more consumption

This beer is a cloudy, yellow amber color with earthy/soil aromas. The hops are slightly overwhelming with a strong bitter finish.

This beer is pale and hoppy but light at the same time. It is somewhat cloudy and has a yellow color. I am not really a fan of IPA but it was a good one for someone new to IPA.

Beautiful fresh piney hop smell. Taste is Fresh and pretty much all hops so not very balanced but I don't mind. Flavorful and great for the price. Really good straight from the can actually. yb

Bitter but not as "hoppy" as one would come to expect from an IPA. Not as high of ABV than other IPAs but has very distinct flavors. Good but not great.

Golden and hazy with hints of orange. It smells of orange, bananas, wheat, and slight sourness. As for taste, this beer is flavorful with hints of citrus and noticeable hops. If you like IPAs, give it a try.

All Day pours a light gold/hay/amber color with very little head. The nose has a nice balance of floral and pine hop aromas matched by a light, crisp mouthfeel. This beer is super balanced and sessionable, perfect for spending a summer day outside.

I have decided that this is the official beer of Summer 2016. It's great on a hot day after being active in the outdoors. Very refreshing, with mild hops bitterness that is not overpowering.

This is an all around great beer. For the low alcohol content, this beer packs a lot of citrus hop notes and hoppy taste that's just bitter enough to remind you that it's an IPA.

Great carbonation, lending to its drinkability.

Summery: A great session ale... I am slightly bias to Founders beers. Still it's the value in the 15 'Brewers pack' for $17.99 that really makes me get giddy over it. Adding on to the fact that it moves rather fast at a few local shops, means I can almost always swoop this less than a month old. Such a great value and readily available go-to~

Let's face reality. I'd love to drink 9.0 IPAs all the time but life SOMETIMES dictates less boozy choices. You won't be fooled that this is anything but a thinner sessIon but Founders puts it in a can and offers it as a 15 pack. In my world there's a place for that. Its a great beach / daytime / cooler beer.

This is a damn spunky beer for sure. Tickles your senses. Even tho I am partial to stouts and porters... I decided to venture out my comfort zone. Boy did it pay off. Pours a cloudy golden haze with minimal white head with light lacing. Smells of skunky pine, floral, and a bit of hops. Intoxicating. Taste is actually like it smells but very light bodied to what I was expecting. Not as bitter as you would think. Finishes very smooth. Well done guys well done. Yummm

Prefer it in cans, the 15 pack of Founders All Day IPA can almost always be found in my fridge. Excellent, excellent IPA, punches way above its "class/ABV," and is enjoyable one at a time, or eight at a time!
