Draft at Thirsty Monk. Pours a clear copper with a thin off white head. Scent is light roast and earthy. Sweet caramel and earthy bitter taste.

12oz Belmont bottle. Thank you for making this Founders. This is to IPAs what Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is to pale ales: classic and dependable. As advertised, I could drink this "all day. "

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a thin head. Great citrus hoppy aroma. Just enough of the hops on the palate but certainly not an overpowering amount. Absolutely canít wait to drink this on a hot summer day.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy straw color. Very thin white head that did not leave any lacing. Aroma is great...hoppy. Mouthfeel is thin, watery. Not a ton of malt backbone but I didnít expect it. Hoppy flavors and slight bitterness. Will be a great all day drinker at the lake in the summer.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Looks ok, Light color, a little watery as well. Very strong aroma of hops, citurs, mango, grapefruit, and definitely pine as well. Very pleasing. The taste does not live up to this. The taste has some of all of these flavors with an average hoppy bite, but overall tastes kind of watery. Altogether it is very good, but I would probably enjoy it more outside in 100 degree weather I believe.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keeping in mind this is a session ale, I think Founders does a good job with the All Day IPA. Sure itís not packed to the gills with flavor, but itís not supposed to be an in-your-face brew. Itís cold out right now and I want to be sipping an Imperial Something-or-Other, but I think when Iím sweating myself silly in my air condition-less home this summer, I could go to this brew pretty quickly.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pleasant aroma with citrus and pine. Very light body and minimal carbonation. Wouldíve liked a more sturdy body and heavier fizz. Grapefruit pith finish. Love the color-a reddish gold. Havenít met a Founderís beer I didnít like and this is no exception. Will relish the other five.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle poured to a shaker at Lunar Brewing Co.. Displayed a clear, golden hue, with a modest amount of off white head foam that reduced fairly rapidly to a ring & film, and left some dots & dashes on the glass. The aroma was expressive, non-catty pine, with a pleasant citrus backup. The flavor also presented a medium hop bitterness that balanced well with the malt in a light to medium body. The carbonation was soft+ but didnít promote any watery sensation, and the hop lingered mildly into the finish. A very nice brew for any IPA newb. Nicely sessionable for all!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a nice light gold-to-copper color with a white head and a good amount of lacing. Smell is quite strong and hoppy with some excellent floral, citrus, and tropical notes. Taste draws back a bit, but is still quite nice. Light malt character, but really not too much. Mouthfeel is light and dry. I see drinking this one all summer.A Nice session summer brew.
