look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Appearance: orangey gold with a thin white fizzy head, and great clarity

Aroma: very grapefruity, strong tropical fruit aroma. No malt character.

Taste: very thin, actually surprisingly thin tasting. Almost no malt character and almost all grapefruit hop flavor. It actually tastes likes hop steeped water.

Mouthfeel: very thin and light bodied in a way that is wrong for the style. Medium carbonation

Overall: Disappointing for such a great brewery, especially one known for such strong beers like Dirty Bastard. No malt flavor makes the beer taste like hop steeped water.

Poured a nice, a clear orange amber with a light white head.

The smell was light and floral, light bit of grassy hops.

The flavor is mild, a touch of light caramel bready malt and a bit of light pine and citrus hops, flavors are clean and balanced but very underwhelming.

The mouthfeel is a touch thin, even for such a low ABV beer.

There really aren't any flaws here, its just very underwhelming, I was expecting more of a dry hopped prescence. Should be Blah day IPA.

Average IPA. Very drinkable, so the name is true.

12oz. bottle poured into a glass.

Appearance: Pours a rusty, clear orange. Head and lacing both minimal. Carbonation moderate.

Aroma: Smells of citrus, pine, lemon, hops and grass. All typical IPA smells. Smells hoppier than 42 IBUs. Alcohol is faint.

Taste: The taste follows the nose, but it's kind of underwhelming. The lemon note is a little too dominant. It's very average.

Mouthfeel: It's thinner than I'd prefer. Somewhat watery for an IPA.

Overall: This is a very mediocre beer in my opinion. It does what they want it to do - it's an IPA you can plow through all day because of low ABV - but it's really boring. It seems like a stab at a pale ale / IPA hybrid and I think it would be better if they'd committed to one or another. It could serve as a good "bridge" beer to help folks move from pales to IPAs, so it's not without value.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

L: bright pale gold body with little off-white head. Did not have much retention

S: Did not have the full aroma qualities. Citrus and grassy is what I wrote down.

T: Bitterness with mildly balanced malt backbone. Citrus and little piney resin in the back but not very apparent.

F: It feels very clean and refreshing. Very high drinkability. As common with the style, it has higher carbonation helps keep it light and refreshing,

Poured from a bottle.
Looks like a nice clean pale ale. Nothing overly memorable.
Smells like hops. Not as citrusy as some other IPAs
Tastes like hops. Not a lot of balance here. This is just a very hoppy beer.
Mouthfeel is what you'd expect from a very hoppy IPA without a lot of balance. Finish is bitter.
Overall: not one of my favorites in this category:

Bells Two-Hearted>Sierra Nevada Torpedo>NOLA Mechahopzilla>Founders All Day IPA.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Appearance: Nice amber appearance with a small white head.

Aroma & Taste: Heavy hop notes. Floral herbs and pine mixed with citrus grapefruit and orange. Even with the citrus notes the beer has a heavy bitter taste with a long finish.

I was surprised by the low ABV for this beer, which is why it's an "All Day IPA." Overall this beer was a little to heavy on the hops for me (I like hops) but I also thought it was better when the beer got a little warmer.

Did an A/B comparison between this and my current favorite session IPA

A: Slight deep amber color. Head retention was OK with minimal lacing

S: No real blast of hops. I had to search really hard to smell (imagine?) some pine and citrus

T: See directly above. IMHO this is more of an amber than an IPA

M: Fine

O: I think Founders is a great brewery but this one really disappointed me. The SingleCut 18Watt I compared this to (or say a Hill Farmstead Edward) both are state of the art in terms of a sessionable IPA and the comparison was night and day. Maybe the bottle was too old? I dunno, but another reason to buy local I reckon...
