This is my first founders beer review so here goes.
The pour is a nice light golden color with a light head that recedes to a ring fast. However plenty of bubbles remain so looks like an average session ale, I give it a 4
The smell, loads of citrus and pine, but at a lighter level than say a double IPA. There's plenty to take in here and I'm lovin it. 4.5
Taste is equal to the smell. This is by no means a heavily flavored brew, but bygosh there's lots of different notes. There's a rich citrus quality, more on the lemon side. Also there is some pine, reminding me of when I've gone camping. Theres a decent malty backbone to it, but it is lighter than usual, and the flavor slips away quickly and doesn't linger. This is a very flavorful beer for 4.7%. I give it a 4.25
The mouthfeel is slightly watery but still tastes like a good beer, not much to say here so 4
Overall I like this beer as a session ale but its not what you are looking for if you want full flavor. 4.25

Founder’s All Day IPA has become my regular rotation go to fridge beer. A good session blend of hops w/o slapping your taste buds excessively with pine needles, as well as very crisp and refreshing. Not filling at all and goes well with food. Also it’s only 147 cal a can so practically lite beer for people who actually love beer.

Can to becher pint glass, the appearance was a nice looking crisp amber color with a finger's worth of white foamy head that fell off at a moderate pace. Some stringy lace.
The aroma had a nice sweet grassy hop contour flowing over some light floral and steadying a slight malt base soaking in the hops.
The flavor was fully bittersweet bringing the hops to the malts and carrying a beautiful blend of it all into the aftertaste and finish.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a nice sessionability about it. Carbonation felt good. ABV felt appropriate.
Overall, pretty nice IPA that I could have again, makes for a great session while fishing.

From a 355ml bottle served at 13 degrees Celsius into a stemmed IPA glass. Best before date: 25.11.2017.

Look: A good-looking beer. It pours a veiled amber with two fingers of foamy, off-white head that settles to a small cap after three minutes. Decent persistence and poor lacing.

Smell: Nice, hoppy aroma. Medium intensity and well-balanced. Prominent hops with resinous, earthy, and citrusy notes of pine, cut grass, and pineapple. There's a honey-like malt backbone to support all that hoppiness. No esters and no alcohol.

Taste: Very much like the aroma. High hop flavour with citrusy lemon, resinous pine, cut grass, and pineapple. Low yet strong enough malt profile to make this a balanced brew. The finish is medium-dry and well-balanced.

Feel: Medium body with lively carbonation. Creamy, fizzy, and slightly drying. No apparent alcohol warmth.

Overall: All in all this a very good beer with no apparent flaws. Great flavour and very drinkable. An epitome to what an all day IPA should be. I'd have it again given the chance.

"All Day IPA" is currently my favorite Session IPA. It has a great citrus flavor and the hops are wonderful. It's great to have the IPA flavor with less ABV.

Not bad at all. Definite taste of grapefruit but a nice change up. I'm normally a German/Czech pilsner type but this was nice. I'd definitely have it again
