It is a common IPA that I’ve had many times. It is easy to get and definitely good enough.

Look: semi-clear amber with an inch white head.

Aroma: pleasant piney and lemony aroma

Taste: Piney, fruity, mango, grapefruit, medium bitterness for an IPA.

Feel: Light to medium body, easy drinking, and definitely sessionable.

This beer is one of the most drinkable ipa's I've ever had. It has a strong hop punch but with only a 42 ibu it is easy to drink and well balanced. Pours a cloudy light amber orange with a light head. Highly recommended

Nice light yellow to orange pour. The nose is of light floral and light citrus peal. Taste of light citrus and as little bit of tropical fruit. Thin mouthfeel but it is a session and very easy drinking. I enjoyed this one.

Summer weight IPAs shouldn't work. Somehow, Founders All Day IPA is one that does. But when the leaves start changing, I stop drinking
L: Much lighter than a typical IPA but would never be mistaken for Bud
S: Yep, there's hops in there. Some, anyway.
T: Took some getting used to, honestly. Initially thought it tasted like an IPA-flavored light beer. Eventually came into its own, though. Skillfully made.
O: If the only think you don't like about summer is that it isn't IPA weather, give this a try. It's weird, but it works.

Poured into a glass.

Clear orange hue.

Minimal off-white head; almost no lace.

Mango & orange nose.

Thin mouthfeel.

Light citrus flavor, light hop bite. Slight macro aftertaste, but not overpowering. Decent.
