3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy true golden color with a white head. Aroma is of hops (obviously), grapefruit, pine, bark, grass, and grain. Not too carbonated on the palate. Flavors include just about everything in the nose. There seems to be a little more malt present in the taste than in the smell, but that’s to be expected with the low alcohol percentage. Leaves a dry hoppy finish.

Pours hazy golden-orange color with a medium sized head. Aroma of hops, floral notes, exotic fruits, grass and some juice. Flavor of mandarin, mild hop notes, faint caramel, goose berries and citric fruits. Somewhat watery palate but it doesn’t disturb a bit, a very nice session ipa indeed.

Bottle from Good Spirits, Glasgow. Pours gold with plenty of fizz, and a tight, foamy, off-white head. Pine, citrus and sweet malts aroma. Flavour had solid cereal malts, a touch of mandarin and apricot, before a moderately bitter finish with hint of white pepper. Good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tan with orange tinges, pretty clear, good head and lace.
Aroma is very nice, plenty hoppy and inviting, more than you’d expect from anything with "session" in the name. Same goes for the taste, it’s plenty IPA-like, while being superbly drinkable, even almost summertime lawnmower drinkable. "Refreshing" isn’t an IPA type of term very often, but this time it just about fits.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 ml bottle.
Pours an unclear pale golden colour with a white head. Aroma is strong with fresh floral hops, caramel and some lemongrass. Flavour of floral hops, grapefruit, citrus, lemongrass. Light bodied, medium carbonation and a dryish, lingering bitter finish. All Day IPA is rather well described, I could drink this all day as it’s light and refreshing. An even more fresh bottle would be even better of course.
