Bottle. Has a yellow color that is very similar to the piss you will take the following morning. A very strong hoppy aroma that i feel does come through in the overall taste as well, but this bitterness is noticed later as this will stick to the palate like glue. Not the best thing Founders has to offer, but if available to you, I would recommend this beer for your next session.

Pale hazy yellow, white cover. Nice hop aroma, spicy and citrusy. Taste is citrus, spicy, bready malt, nice stuff.

Bottle. Smells like a double IPA but goes down like a light beer. Overall smells better than it tastes. Truly a sessionable IPA.

kevinsenn (1120) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 25, 2012
12 ounce bottle from Sicilianoís in Grand Rapids, MI. Aroma is fantastic; floral hops, citrus hops, and more hops! Taste is quite mild, no hint of malt, but quite hop-filled. Clear a too-light-pale, and a little on the flat side. All around an extremely drinkable IPA (hence the "Session Ale" label on the bottle).

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. "

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.

screigh (463) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 22, 2012
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.

Scipio (714) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2012
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.

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.
