12oz Bottle
$9.99 6-Pack
4 Season's Liquor

Bottled: 4/21/14

A pour from the bottle fills the glass with a liquid that glows like polished brass. Harvest orange hues run through the body when backlit. The foam is antique white with a bubbly, soapy appearance. The initial pour produces a solid head that slowly settles at a chunky skim coat with scattered chunks floating about.

The nose is bright with hops. The malt base is pale with a sugar cookie and soft biscuity sweetness allowing the hop profile to take center stage. Citrus abounds, mostly in the form of grapefruit and tangerine, but remnants of apricot and pineapple play their role as well. Fruit salad is first and foremost but there is also an underlying herbaceous quality along with mild florals. This beer gets my mouth watering every time.

White grapefruit is big, in your face, and pithy upfront. The grapefruit is bright and freshly squeezed, pushing it's way throughout while being accompanied by the occasional tangerine, candied citrus peel, and apricot. The herbaceous quality is still present but with pine characteristics, and softer than in the nose. Sugar cookie malt adds a touch of sweetness that helps balance the pithy grapefruit.

The body is light with supple carbonation a luxuriously silky mouthfeel. There's a sturdy bitterness present but not at all palate wrecking. drinkability is off the charts with the low abv and juicy hop profile.

I have to say, I'm not very fond of the new "session IPA" craze, but All Day has been a favorite of mine since it was released back in the day. I just wish fresh bottles/cans were a little easier to come across because if that was the case it would be All Day, everyday.

I like this beer more than others I guess. It tasted very much like alpha King to me. A little bit sweet with a nice hop kick to it... more of a hoppy pale than an IPA but still a good brew...

I wouldn't want it any hoppier for a session so im good with this... piney hoppiness lingers on the finish but it doesn't overwhelm... good malt base...

What's not to like here? Super refreshing on a hot day....
