Just found Founder's recently. The All Day IPA of theirs is the only Founder's beer I have seen in stores. Do they make a regular IPA? I usually don't buy session IPAs because it seems like a scam, less alcohol and more water for the same amount of money. But I saw a 15 pack of Founder's All Day session IPA cans when stocking up for hurricane Irma on sale, so I bought it. It was delicious! Very light, refreshing, decently carbonated, almost bitter enough, and not too much aftertaste, fairly dry and clean. Easy to drink, and very convenient for long days of drinking... not much alcohol in them, a bit hard on the wallet, but a lot of fun.

Can. Hazy light amber. 1cm frothy head.
Tangerine, pine and grapefruit aroma. Distant apricot. Malt is subdued.
Mild version of the smell on tasting. Decent bitter completion.
Light to moderate body. Medium carbonation.
Good to taste a low ABV AIPA for a change.

Truly sessionable yet still an IPA and decently priced . Definitely a good summer beer with a crisp clean finis! Piney yet a tad juicey. As with most session IPAs the taste falls a little flat but very good for the style.

Pours a very lightly cloudy amber with tall active head; subsides rather quickly, leaves moderate lacing. Some active carbonation visible throughout. Aroma is mostly of malt; not a good sign for an IPA, even a session; some very mild citrus / tangelo aroma. Taste follows with not much going on in the hop department; acidity from the carbonation is too pronounced up front with too little hops to drown it out. Some light taste of citrus, but it's mostly just the rather bland malt flavours that dominate. Even maybe a hint of adjunct-like flavour poking its way through at the end of each sip. Mouthfeel is neither full nor even close to juicy. Somewhat watery as I find most session IPAs are, sadly. Disappointing for Founders, even though I wasn't expecting much given that it's a 4.7% session. If you want to try a session that keeps all the flavour of a good IPA with a low ABV, you've got to try Maine Beer Company's "Post Ride Snack". It's the only session IPA with which I've been pleasantly surprised instead of disappointed.
