On tap at Kahootz, Meridian ID.

Pours a mostly clear golden orange, with very little lacing. Pretty nice aroma of orange, citrus, and grapefruit zest. A little malty backbone but not a ton...more of the same citrus peel on the palate, with light pine and grassy notes. Lighter bodied and easy drinking.

Decent session hoppy ale. I think Stone's Go-To is still my favorite but it will be nice to have this one in the market year round.

A nice smooth session IPA, with strong hops and a citrus flavor. Definitely great for hanging out outside.

Solid session IPA, loads of hops on the nose and tongue. Fruity citrus hop notes with a decent caramel malt backbone. Light on the tongue and goes down smooth. Easily sessioned.

19.2 oz can packaged 2/22/17 poured into a pint glass.

Pours golden copper in color with a small, white head that recedes into a film that lasts throughout the experience. Some lacing clings to the glass as you drink.

Smell is hop forward: Citrus rind, grapefruit, some floral and pine.

Taste follows the nose, featuring citrus, floral, and pine notes. Finishes with a lingering hop bitterness. Malts play a purely supportive role.

Mouth feel is on the lighter side of medium bodied, generously carbonated.

Drinkability is excellent. This is a session ale if there ever was one.

There is a time and place for every beer. All Day IPA is there for you when you want a sessionable high quality brew at a reasonable price.

12 oz bottle from a six-pack purchased at the LCBO; best before Nov 25 2017 and served well-chilled.

Pours a foggy, translucent golden-blonde hue, generating one finger's worth of soapy white head which requires a minute or two to recede down to a bubbly collar and film. At the same time, a smooth curtain of sticky lace is deposited. Grapefruit, lemon pith and clementine citrus are apparent from the first sniff, alongside some earthy pine needles and floral, leafy hop notes. There's also perhaps a hint of grainy sweetness - but truthfully, the malts lack the oomph needed to punch through the strong current of hoppy goodness which characterizes the aroma. Is that a problem for me? Hell naw; not for this sort of beer.

An appealing, flavourful session ale, with the profile basically adhering to the same specs as the nose. Wheaty, grainy pale malt sweetness is relegated to a purely supportive role, allowing for citrusy grapefruit and lemon rind notes to run roughshod over the taste buds. A slight hint of apricot or melon surfaces mid-sip, but is soon lost amidst the piney, floral bitterness of the back end, which culminates in an earthy finish and slightly resiny aftertaste. Quite light-bodied, with fairly sharp, biting carbonation that is in no way shy about prickling the palate. Exceedingly drinkable for such a sturdily-hopped brew.

Final Grade: 4.2, a solid A-. Founders' All Day IPA is an excellent session ale that I'd buy by the case, if it were sold in that format in this market. While it's not exactly a complex (or even especially memorable) pale ale in terms of hop profile, it's still quite well put-together - particularly for a session IPA, a pseudo-style which I am admittedly not a major proponent of. Certainly better than nearly all of the locally-brewed competitors in this hoppy, crushable sub-style, with only one or maybe two exceptions coming to mind. I'd encourage Ontario BAs to grab a sixer while it's fresh and near its peak.

Very good fresh IPA. Don't usually enjoy IPA but had good color and taste.

Heard a lot of good things over the years about Founders. Bought a 19.2 oz can, poured into a chilled tulip glass.
Pkgd on Jan 30/17. OK.

Pours clear gold, nice thick head.
Not much to talk about taste wise. Very bland, not much hop bitterness or flavor.
Very light, but not satisfying if you expect any sort of IPA body.

I suppose if you get it cheap enough, and you're at an all-day BBQ, this might be an okay choice. But I'm glad I only bought one.

The advent of the $18 15-rack of IPA has breathed new life into this beer. While not a sipper, it makes a great affordable Beer Pong or Slap Cup beer.

12 Oz bottle. Bottling date 12/14/16

Pours a hazy honey colored body with a white head. Not much retention. A little thin lacing

Overall smell is not very prominent.(perhaps because it's 3 months old?) I'm getting mostly lemon citrus with a little malt

Taste is a little bolder then the smell. The hop bite is very slight

Slightly prickly feel

There is a lot to like about this session IPA. It's very drinkable and the price of a 15 pack of cans cost less then some 12 packs of other beers. I bought this single beer to see if I wanted to invest in a 15 pack next week... I think i will!

This is my go to beer for a long day of drinking, like on a Saturday during college football season. Saw the new 19.2 oz cans and picked up 5 of them for 1.99 each! 15 pks and now these great tallboys. There's certainly better beers, but it might be the best session ipa. Especially, for the price and convenience of the packaging.
