From bottle. Dark gold pour with minimal white head that doesn’t hang around. No lacing. Big grassy nose with some bright fruit in the background. Aggressive up front, giving way to a bit of resin and a very clean finish. A lot going on in this one. This pretty much matches the commercial description. Don’t be deterred by the low ABV; this is a very tasty beer.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2014 Bottle from Appellation Wines, Dalry. Pours a clear yellow with nice white head. Good carbonation. Lots of tropical fruit aromas, plus something nicely vegetal. More fruit flavours when tasted, and a very long bitter finish. I’d say too bitter for a session beer, a bit one-dimensional, but it’s a good dimension!

All day ipa, exactly that. Smell of pure pine and grapefruit, light copper pour with white head. Nice clean hop taste of pine and citrus. Good stuff again from founders.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours golden with a cloudy orange tinge. The bubbles are steady and the head is quite proportional and attractive. The nose is grapefruit and orange. The taste is grapefruit with a green tomato stalk or nettles thing on the finish. I think the carbonation on this is the maximum that I’d prefer. Overall, a good American pale ale possibly on the limit of bitterness for my preference.

Bottle. Pours a thin head, orange body, quite a clean, grapefruity aroma, sweet light hop taste with a very dry finish; quite an easy going session beer; does what it says on the tin. Not bad!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Purchased at: John’s Grocery, Iowa City, IA
Pour: Dark gold pour with a medium-sized white head.
Aroma: Pine, citrus hops aroma dominate along with some dankness on the nose.
Flavor: Citrus hops dominate the flavor, maybe a tad of floral taste as well. The bitterness is missing but doesn’t take away from the brew.

My recommendation: A go to beer for the summer for sure. A great concept, and they come through by providing a very tasty sessionable beer.

Strong aroma of pine with hints of floral. Pours a clear golden amber with a rapidly dissipating off-white head and no lacing. The taste is grapefruit with some floral notes. Medium body with medium carbonatin. Overall, the name says it all, yes you could drink this one all day.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2014 Wonderful crisp hopness that won’t overwhelm. I’m so glad to see it come in cans now; the perfect beer for a day of playing outdoors. And now they’ve improved the unimprovable: 15-pack "Brewer’s Dozen" available. Wow.
