From a 355ml bottle served at 13 degrees Celsius into a stemmed IPA glass. Best before date: 25.11.2017.

Look: A good-looking beer. It pours a veiled amber with two fingers of foamy, off-white head that settles to a small cap after three minutes. Decent persistence and poor lacing.

Smell: Nice, hoppy aroma. Medium intensity and well-balanced. Prominent hops with resinous, earthy, and citrusy notes of pine, cut grass, and pineapple. There's a honey-like malt backbone to support all that hoppiness. No esters and no alcohol.

Taste: Very much like the aroma. High hop flavour with citrusy lemon, resinous pine, cut grass, and pineapple. Low yet strong enough malt profile to make this a balanced brew. The finish is medium-dry and well-balanced.

Feel: Medium body with lively carbonation. Creamy, fizzy, and slightly drying. No apparent alcohol warmth.

Overall: All in all this a very good beer with no apparent flaws. Great flavour and very drinkable. An epitome to what an all day IPA should be. I'd have it again given the chance.

"All Day IPA" is currently my favorite Session IPA. It has a great citrus flavor and the hops are wonderful. It's great to have the IPA flavor with less ABV.

Not bad at all. Definite taste of grapefruit but a nice change up. I'm normally a German/Czech pilsner type but this was nice. I'd definitely have it again

Light bright golden color. Low head but lots of champagne-like bubbles. Smells of clean bright pine resin and a touch of creamy wheat and steel. Taste is bright green grass and a slight herbal oregano. Tasty, juicy, floral and smooth. Tons of fresh hop flavor without the big bite on the finish. Slightly thin on the texture, but that makes it very refreshing and clean. Slight dry finish but crisp and tangy. Love that this comes in a 19.2oz can.

Literally bought this one and will leave all others alone, in the fridge, and run out to buy more. AWESOME BEER and light alcohol.

Been putting off trying this beer. It is much better than expected, does not taste very sessionable, which to me means its pretty dang good!! Juicy, bitter, and refreshing.

Edit: After having it many more times, I have upped the rating.
