Absolutely love this IPA. Really easy to drink so the name all day reads exactly that.
Golden yellow appearance
Aroma is piney, hoppy, and floral
There is a nice citrus and hoppy taste that is very well balanced and makes it easy to drink.

This beer made me re-look at the bad line up from founders. Cans are cheap and delicious and I like that I get 15 for such a good craft beer.

A: Light pale straw color. With pearl white head.

S: Moderate aromas of citrus a touch of pine. I want to live in a house that smells like this.
.
T: Just like the smell, the taste has lots citrus and pine flavor hops. Overall not a lot of malt or big body to this "session" but I may be buying a keg for the tap box.

M: Nice carbonation, a little thin overall which had more body, but typical among most American IPA, pale and DIPAs.

O: Love the low alcohol, lets me drink more of these on these hot Louisiana days where temp is 95 and up. This beer is quite easy to drink, I have bought multiple "almost cases" bought out the whole food and ordered more. If you buy more than three 15 packs they give you the case discount. Awesome! Again love the low alcohol I can have a few of these and unlike a normal IPA I can actually function and drive after multiple pints. Has become my go to beer.

Okay I am not a huge fan of IPA beers. Most I don't like but this Founders All Day IPA is good. It has a bitter taste like all IPA's but its not super bitter like most are. It has a light body, even though it isn't a light beer, and is average in beer calories so its very easy to drink. I don't like how you get a choice of both bottles and cans. It kind made me skeptical at first since it was offered in a can but every Founders beer I had so far was good. The cost was decent at $18 for a 15 pack of cans. Bottom line if I want an IPA this will be my first choice.

I'm not a fan of IPA's but this one won me over. Great nose, nice bitterness but not overpowering with no nasty IPA aftertaste. It really is an all day beer.

This beer is one of my absolute favorites. Very good dark caramel color, slight orange, with a white head. The smell is strong hops and other florals and citrus fruits. Very good on the tongue, definitely very hoppy. Strong flavors that last awhile, makes you want that second sip. Very refreshing, 100% recommend.

One of my go to favorites.
Look: pale golden color. clear.
Smell: Hoppy and somewhat grape fruity.
Taste: Clean and hoppy. Not extremely bitter but I would not call it sessionable.

The best session ipa in my opinion. Fruity and hoppy on the nose but smooth taste.
