12oz bottle with "1/04/12" stamped on the neck of the bottle.

Pours pale orange in color with really good clarity. The head barely stood one finger tall and faded to almost nothing after only a few minutes. There is some lacing, but nothing to write home about. This baby looks more carbonated than it taste.

The aroma is fresh, crisp, and citrus forward. Very nice. I'm getting orange and grapefruit zest.

Thin malt body up front. Nice bitter bite from the hops. Somewhat fruity...again, I'm getting oranges and grapefruit. Very clean and crisp finish with the bitterness lingering ever so slightly.

Thin bodied mouthfeel. Very wet with moderate carbonation.

To me, this is an American Pale Ale. It's just so easy to drink, and the alcohol is below 5%. It's still a good beer overall regardless.

Morey's Bottom Line: I could definitely see drinking this all day during a BBQ on an 80 degree summer day. If I was in charge at Founders, this would be a May or June seasonal without a doubt. I wouldn't make this year round.

Pours a gorgeous orange-honey color with a solid, finger high, off-white/light tan head. Only slightly hazy, light gets all the way through but is filtered and it actually makes the color pop more, in my estimation. Good lacing as well.
Smell is hops (grapefruit with a hint of pine), wood, malt, all balanced very well.
Taste is spot on with the olfactory presence, grapefruit/pine hops, wood and malt notes. Very well balanced with the hops being exactly where they should be. A light medicinal not creeps in during the aftertaste but does not detract at all from the experience.
Watery at the start and through the middle, the body fills in just at the swallow ending up medium. Carbonation is medium plus. For an IPA it is rather less biting than most though not smooth as I cannot bring myself to describe any IPA that way (save a double/imperial). Well named, I could easily drink several of these throughout the day. Sadly, I only have two.

This is a sessionable IPA by all means it pours a golden hazed hue with a one finger head that stays and leaves a rim of lacing the smell is straight out pineapple and citrus with a hit of pine,the mouthfeel is light bodied but for an all day beer it makes total sense and has tastes of pineapple first up which is very prolific followed by a smack of fresh citrus intertwined with a small cameo of toffeeish malts and the cameo Is short but just like the name says its an all day IPA and to be honest funnily enough I could drink it all day cheers.

Pours a light copper color with two big fingers of head. The nose has the mild essence of hops. The body is quite thin and the flavor profile is not even terribly hoppy.

I have had better IPAs but none that were this low alcohol/sessionable. This beer brings big flavor with an easy swilling alcohol profile. This one should be in cans!!!

Pours a hazy golden amber color with an average size white head and head retention. Leaves some lacing.

Good hoppy smell, mostly citrus but some piney as well.

Taste is good. Very hoppy, mostly citrus, the tangerine reminds me of Legend DIPA (2011....the 2012 stinks!!!)

Mouthfeel is a hair thin, but what do you expect for under 5.00%

This is a good sessionable beer. I will be buying more this summer.

12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a small head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale orange color with great clarity and slow moving bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Grapefruit, tangerine, many, passion fruit, a little caramel, and resiny pine.

Taste: All the hops are there, but it seems like it is missing something. A little more maltiness and balance of flavors would be good. Still tasty though.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, light, low to medium carbonation, and extremely drinkable.

Overall: A nice session IPA like it was intended to be. Hoppy and light is not a bad thing and great for the warmer months.

Pretty good clarity and a fairly minimal head. Light golden color with good carbonation. Pine like hop aroma with some biscuity malt following. Lots of flavor from the pine like hops. Hard to believe it is only 4.7%! Very smooth mouthfeel. Very well done.
