Overall a decent IPA but not the best, if it was anymore bitter it should be classified as a ESB. It was semi sweet and had a great taste. I'm a big fan of IPAs but there are better ones out there, if this was conditioned a little longer it could definitely be a better beer.

12 oz bottle poured into a Sierra Nevada imperial pint.
Bottled 12/26/11, 42 IBU, 4.7% ABV.

A - Vibrant golden hued, plenty of carbonation streams through the perfectly clear beer to a well-retained ivory head. Thin, clingy lace dots the pint delicately.

S - Holy dry-hopped aroma Batman! All Day IPA smells incredible! Voluptuous citrus; lemon wedge, cubed pineapple, and balled mango make up this very tropical aroma that finishes out with a touch of pine. Pale graininess and smooth pils sweetness back up the near-orgasmic hop nose.

T - Pale and pils malt provide a great base and delicious flavor behind the bold hop profile that mirrors the aroma. Tropical but balanced.

M - Lighter bodied, perfect for a session ale, this crisp IPA has an impeccably balanced finish that allows the moderate bitterness to be accented without becoming a chore to drink.

O - Damn near flawless, All Day IPA is a session ale packed with hop flavor and character that's exciting but not overwhelming or taxing after a few. It's not often I want to drink pint after pint of a beer but, I'd be overly willing to put six of these back. Founders has nailed it; All Day IPA is the quintessential American session ale!

massive thanks to bierenutz for this excellent extra. bottled 12/26/2011 - 11 days old...i hear ipas fall off after hour 23, but i'll take my chances with 11 days! woo hoo!

a - opened the bottle and filled my blue point snifter. poured straw yellow that settled into the glass as a yellow orange with a full finger of white frothy classic ipa head. lacing was chunky and clingy. has a pale ale look to it, subtle visible carbonation swam to the surface.

s - nice sweaty hops, but not too intense. the odor makes me expect a bit of a bitter bomb. again, seems like it would be a hoppy pale ale as opposed to an ipa, but i guess that's what these huge hop bombs that pass off as ipas these days have done to my perception of an ipa. then again, this is almost a session beer whereas most ipas these days have more strength.

t - nice. some sweetness with the hops and finishes pretty bitter. nice classic ipa...good, not crazy.

m - light and easy drinking. some bitterness.

o - overall a nice ipa, nothing earth shattering. glad i got to try it extremely fresh. i do get founders locally, not sure if this one will come to town, but i imagine so. i'd definitely reach for this one if i was looking for an ipa to drink all day (as advertised), but would definitely take double trouble over this one in a heart beat.

A half-finger of fluffy white head on top of a transparent honey-colored beer. Great looking. Has a powerful citrus and piney hop smell accented with some grassy notes. The taste has the hop character but not much balance it. Almost a light pilsner-like background to it. Nice, light and smooth mouthfeel and lightly carbonated. Overall, this would be great in the summertime at the river. It's got great hop character but not really much malt backing to balance it out for me.

4/30/12 edit-this beer is really growing on me. It's a great session beer. I bumped the taste up to a 4 and the overall up to a 4, as compared to my first review.

A: pours a clear honey with two fingers of white head that fades into a thin ring with no lacing.

S: loads of citrus here. Pineapple and grapefruit with some pine notes as well. Smells amazing, especially for such a low abv beer.

T: lots of grapefruit and pine with some pineapple and grassy notes as well. Nice and earthy.

M: medium-light body with medium carbonation, this beer is light, dry, and clean. Quite drinkable for such a hoppy beer.

O: a great IPA, especially with such a low abv. I could definitely drink these all day.

12 oz. bottle. Bottled 12/26/11.

Clear, clean, light copper orange body. Small, but persistent, light beige-white head. Some lacing. Lots of fresh hops on the nose. Big notes of mango, pineapple, cannabis, resin, and some citrus. Maybe a little sugary malt in there as well.

Toasted malts and some lemon mineral water bitterness up front. Herbal, grassy hop flavors become weedier through the palate. Some pine in there too. Bitterness stays strong, and even gets a little aspirin-y in the end. Light malt presence with some caramel and fruit flavors. The hops definitely win this battle though. Very dry finish. Moderate body, with a little bit of a gassy, bubbly feel. Definitely tastes like a "session" IPA, with all the hops but less malt/alcohol. Ultimately, although I quite like this beer, I think it would really shine on cask; the carbonation is a little too prickly and gives the beer too much of a mineral water feel.

Poured into a Tulip.

Appearance. Dark golden color. Pours with 2 fingers of head that slowly dissipates to a layer of tight bubbles on top of the beer. Lots of effervescence.

Smell. Floral, slightly citric, herbal and grassy. So much here, hops wise.

Taste. Starts out, and continues to be surprisingly dry. A moderate resinous, piney and floral bitterness builds. Grapefruit and other citric flavors join the floral notes as the pineyness fades. At the same time a slightly herbaceous, or even medicinal and grassy flavors join the citrus and floral notes. The finish is dry, crisp and refreshing. Very little, to almost no malt backbone to speak of.

Mouthfeel. Light body, effervescent carbonation and very dry as stated before.

This beer is insanely drinkable, while at the same time being one of the most uniquely hopped beers I have ever tasted. There are so many of the standard hop flavors that you usually find in IPAs, This one just combines them all in one beer.

"All Day IPA". 12 oz bottle. Bottled on 12/26/11.

It pours a light, clear orangeish amber with a foamy white head that quickly dissipates with no lacing.

The smell is pretty good. There is a lot more grain than your typical IPA, but it is pleasant. There is a tangy fruitiness as well in the aroma.

The flavor is decent. Definitely more malt-oriented. It tastes like pretzel and grain with a touch of pine in the aftertaste but it is by no means bitter. Grapefruit comes in as you go.

I am confused why this is an IPA, more of a standard pale ale.

A: Light golden hue. Bubbly white head. A small amount of lacing.

S: A great balance of sweetness along with fruity hops notes.

T: Lots of citrus flavors: grapefruit, lemon and orange. The flavors are perfectly balanced with a slight hop bitterness.

M: Light-bodied with a good amount of carbonation.

O: This stuff is great. Exactly what it says. The kind of beer I could drink all day. I am sure hardcore hopheads will not be satisfied by it, but I see this becoming a beer I keep stocked in the fridge.
