Poured from a 19oz can into a glass. Pours a wonderful golden amber color with a light white head that fades quickly. Upon cracking the can, the air is filled with the smell of lemongrass and citrus. A wiff of the glass reveals hints of melon and pine.
A decent malt profile takes a backseat in this hop - forward sessional. Flavors of citrus and lemongrass rush in with a touch of chamomile. Then, juicy notes of melon sweep over, immediately followed by a classic resinous pine and a lingering bitterness.
Perfectly carbonated per style; this brew has a smooth, almost silky finish with a refreshing but not-too-thin body. This is a fantastic example of a session IPA; it definitely showcases some classic and delicious hop character.

Average. Not bad but not great. Like an "IPA Lite". Less filling. Works great for while working outside without being too full.

Maybe it's not the best representation, but I'll take it for what it was - I grabbed this Founder's All Day IPA 20oz for $2.00 at HEB here in Beaumont, Texas. The look - golden. A little sticky, with a decent retention. I'm surprised. The smell on this one is nice, how could anyone complain? Have you seen the alternatives people?!?! Smell is of pine, hop resin, and just general dankness. Had I not known better, this would be a lot more expensive of a beer. In fact, lots of fools try to pass off beers as being "great" when they are no more fresh or better than this one. The flavor is also great, matching the hops, just a little light on the bitterness. The feel shows that it is a session ale - super light. I guess that's why people don't rate this higher or something? Maybe I just got a really fresh can, but I would say that this is a perfect introduction for someone to an IPA without all the barriers that might stop your everyday Natty Lite type drinker. I've drank a lot of beers and this one is not bad at all. There is a little bit of barley/grain that kind of seems to sit in the finish, but this beer is supposed to be a session ale, and it does what it does like a boss. Cheers.

From a can stamped 9/18/17. Pours a clear orange with a finger of white head that dissipates quickly. Smells of grapefruit. Fairly light feel, slightly sticky. Tastes of citrus, hop resin, and a touch of malt. I still prefer stronger IPAs, but this is decent and at $15 for a 15-pack, the price is right.
