Founders All Day IPA
Look: straw, or golden color with tons of carbonation and a large off white fluffy head. I noticed there was not alot of lacing. In fact not much at all. That is kind of odd for an IPA.
Nose: Citrusy hops, lighter malts, grassy
Taste: Kind of the same as the smell. The hops are there and you can tell they are somewhat citrusy, but it is pretty light in flavor. I have had it on tap and it tasted better. This was out of the bottle. The aftertaste is the same as some of the IPA's, but it is just so much weaker and less bitter. If you wanna sit there and sip beers this is the one for you. Maybe good for someone transitioning from lagers to pale ales. It tastes more like a regular pale ale.
Mouth feel: very light, crisp, thin and refreshing.
Overall: It is more like a regular pale ale than an IPA and would be good if you can't hang with the strong hops bitterness of the real IPA's.

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.
