Canít wait to return up north to "get me some." In the meantime, Lagunitas IPA will have to do but Iíd brave the cold and snow to "hit" that All Day IPA!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Poured clear, lighter golden with a short, white head. The aroma picked up grassy and citrusy hops over soft bready malts.. aiight. The flavor found bitter floral and orange zesty bitterness over dry pale and bready notes.. finished dry and tangy. Light-bodied and tangy on the palate. . Ok feel and flow.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2013 12 pz bottle to glass. bottle from Jason/umich in trade. Really like the aroma on this - a sticky kind of citrus hop bomb. beer looking pour Taste for me was the meh ipa - not much on the malt side and hops werenít enjoyable to me.

Bottle after bottle after bottle. Clear golden-orange. Powerful hop aroma of pine, citrus, peach. Flavor is lighter than aroma suggests, with cereal upfront, followed by bitter citrus and a spicy finish. Delicious, and one of the best session IPAs I have had.

Aromatic without being overwhelming and tasty without distracting from the food you might be enjoying alongside. This is an excellent session beer. I think this IPA really nails what Founders set out to do. Itís one of the few IPAs that isnít a monster - itís good without saturating your palate. Thereís nothing to get fatigued by in the aroma or the flavor profile. Itís a good, solid IPA.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
off orange pour w/ a small white head with thin lacing that dissipates quickly. Clean light citrus and grass hop notes in the aroma with a tiny touch of sweet caramel. Palate is light and well carbonated. Flavor is subdued for an IPA, clearly designed as a session beer with light pine on the swallow and a good amount of floral hops but not overly bitter, and a fair amount of citrus. Enjoyable to drink, but not a really special beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled with Moreau and Andrew at GABF 2012. Pours a hazy bright amber orange body with white head and lacing. Aroma is fresh, clean citrus hop. Mouthfeel is medium with nice carbonation and notes of citrus, pine, grass hop. Slightly bitter and dry in the finish, but still drinkable and sessionable. Nice overall.
