3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A - Pours crystal clear amber with a frothy white head. Sheets of lacing cling to the glass.
S - Citrus fills the nostrils, grapefruit, orange, and lemon, bright fruit, pineapple, white bread yeast with a biscuity pale malt underneath.
T - Follows the nose with bright grapefruit, tangerine, lemon and orange. Nice hop flavor with ample bitterness. Tangerines show up and the pale malts support the zesty citrus with some grassy and slightly spicy hops coming in as it warms. Finishes crisp and clean with a pithy grapefruit bitterness.
M - Light to medium body, solid carbonation, crisp and clean finish.
A great session IPA, especially for the ABV. Grapefruit dominates with a light pale malt base. It’s crisp and clean and you could drink this all day... get it.
Serving type: on-tap

Bottle from vino. Citrus, bitter and slightly sweet to finish. Packs a decent hop punch compared to higher abv equivalents.

I believe Founders has achieved what they set out to do with this one, a session ale with flavor enough to satisfy the hop heads out there. I don’t think this is an IPA though, and I know I’m going against the grain here, but I think this is more closely associated with an American Pale Ale, and obviously there is going to be some overlap here, but I think its closer to that side than an IPA. Still wonderful

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden colour with a big soapy white head. Lovley aroma of of grapes, passionfruit and peach. This is how a proper west coast ipa should smell like. Taste is wonderfull, loads of passionfruit and grapes, but also a healthy bit of malts which manages to balance it all off nicely. It avoids feelong watery, the body is quite big for just 4,7 % abv. Refreshing carbonation. A perfect sessionbeer indeed!

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can-pours golden amber with a lasting white head. The smell that pops out is citrusy hops and hints of pine and apricot. This IPA is amazing. There is little to no bitterness . I guess that's why it's labeled all day IPA. Lots of character. A lighter side IPA but with lots of character. I love cans!

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light, a bit thin for my tast. Wide, put not deep palette, good hops, mild malts, but somewhat burned in the edge. Short, but fresh. Low alcohol for everyday use.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the can: nice and clear brassy color with decent orange hued, off-white foam. Bright aroma of citrus rind, grapefruit, pine, with some caramel. The flavor is pretty bitter, citrusy, with a quick finish and a hint of sweetness. Quite refreshing with the lower abv and crisp carbonation. All day indeed.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: pours with a smaller head that is beige in color, beer has a haze to it, it's an average gold color, head dissipates quickly
Aroma: citrus, pine, grass, smells like a good hoppy beer without much malt aroma
Taste: has a nice hop character to it of pine and grass bitterness, a crystal malt finish
Palate: this is where this beer is interesting, it almost brings up the idea of a light beer into your head but then destroys it when you feel the nice malt backbone
Overall: awesome beer, really wish I could get it locally, really delivers on taste and the fact that it's a session beer only makes it better
