smells blandly hoppy, vague citrus with no distinguishing notes. the profile of this beer is really, really watery - hopped san pellegrino. there's a malt flavor similar to something like the Oscar blues ipa, and the aftertaste is dominated by this sticky dryness. if not for the lingering malt this might have been a serviceable cookout beer, but as it is I would rather have the cheap local lager alternative.

The light heavyweight champion of the world, your Session IPA champ - All Day IPA. A gorgeous pour and blast of hop aroma prelude a poundable session IPA that has defined a genre.

My first Founders brew doesn't disappoint one bit. I'd consider this a solid and satisfying IPA without the "session" modifier. That said, it would be hard to find a better session beer of ANY kind, especially pale ale or IPA. Will be seeking this one out again.

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.
