Purchased December, 2016, Founders All Day IPA looks and tastes good. The 4.7 alcohol content is an asset when I want a beer well before bedtime, and the price is competitive. Poured cold from a can into a thin walled glass. The initial hop aroma is good and strong; the color is rich amber. The beer develops a fairly thick, lasting white head. Taste is satisfying, with a tilt toward fruity, bitter hoppiness. Moderate lacing as the glass is emptied.

This beer was my first session IPA. It was delicious! I bought a 6 pack of these, believing I wouldn't be disappointed by something that said "IPA" in the title. And disappointed I wasn't. However, the cans I got were very over carbonated. When I opened up the can, and later I found every can did this, beer rose to the top real quick and spilled over. Messy, sticky. I was not pleased with that. I told Founders and they compensated with really cool merchandise! So, to the beer itself
Appearance: pours a typical IPA amber, touch lighter maybe. Overcarbonated as it was, I was able to pour a reasonable head on it.
Aroma: Citrusy and tropical fruits.
Taste: Follows the nose with some pleasant malt sweetness. Balanced. My favorite type of IPA
Overall: It's delicious. It has a good citrusy tropical punch with a balance of malts on the front. Balanced IPA's are the way to go!
Update: I've been I'm search of my go to beer for over a year. After trying this beer, then trying others and then revisiting this beer, I think I found my go to with this one. It's just well balanced and my friends and family that aren't IPA fans love it. Keeping it in the fridge will be a must

Poured from 19.2oz bottle into Spiegelau IPA glass. Canned on April 27th 2017. A bit old and a revisit so let's see here.

L: Clear gold, with an off-white two finger head that has moderate retention.

S: Gentle aroma, light citrus note of grapefruit with some nice floral notes. Super light aroma of malt.

T: Again very light flavors, citrus and floral with some herbal backnotes as well. Definitely a Session IPA. This is better than when I had it last and probably because my palate has changed.

F: Light, crisp and semi-dry.

O: Much better than last time, which was quite some time ago. I like this.

This is a very good and well balanced IPA, there is a nice color as well as a nice hop presence without being to bitter. It is also a low ABV beer, so you could drink more than one. Overall a very good IPA

This is a good tasting and balanced IPA. It's not the best I've every had, but it is certainly a good experience. Despite its low ABV, it surpasses Goose and Redhook IPAs in my tongue's humble opinion.

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.
