I recently switched to beer primarily for lower calories per ounce than other alcoholic beverages. Over the past year my taste has evolved. Most notably I couldn't drink IPAs at first, but this is now one of my favorite styles.

Founders All Day is my current favorite IPA because it has all the clean, spicy hoppiness of a great IPA without a heavy bitter finish or aftertaste. The low ABV is also a big plus for me.

Overall my favorite IPA and one of my favorite beers.

12oz can dated 7/27/15 poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Pours a deep amber color with about a finger of head that quickly dissipates to a very tiny ring of head with little lacing.

Smell is of citrus and tropical fruits with a hint of breadiness from the malts.

Flavor is a bit disappointing. The malts seem to dominate up front. There is a hint of the citrus and tropical notes followed by bitterness.

Feel is a bit thin but it is nicely carbonated with a nice, dry finish.

It's a nice beer but not one of my first choices in the style.

My second favorite session IPA Behind GF Citra session. Super tasty and only a bit thin and watery. High carbonation hides the "session" feel. Great aroma, good taste. Can't ask much more from a light IPA.

I'm a small person with a very low tolerance for alcohol, so this has become my go-to IPA. Is it the best in the world? Of course not. But it's very reasonably priced (less than a dollar a can) and I can finish several in one sitting comfortably. Not as 'chewy' as full-strength IPAs, but the juicy hop terpenes kick more than makes up for the slightly thin malt palate. Long, satisfying finish.

Pretty good beer. Never disappoints. First drink or last drink of the night, it will go down smooth.
