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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Aroma has notes of pine, citrus and floral hops and a slight caramel maltiness. Light amber hue with a small white head that mostly diminished and left little lace. Flavor is medium sweet and bitter. Palate is medium/light bodied with watery average carbonation. Overall a very easy drinking IPA but nothing to rave about. A session beer I guess but why bother then?

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, bottled on 2/2/2012. Clear yellow/orange color, one-finger off-white foamy head. Nice lace. Really nice hoppy nose. Great light bitter taste, carbonation is crisp and smooth, and on the lighter side, making this very drinkable. Such a good session ale. Perfect for itís purpose.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle, bottled on 12/26/2011. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a mostly clear golden/orange color with a half inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both decent. Aroma is mostly hoppy, the brew smells like citrusy (tropical fruit, orange peel, mango) and pine hops, along with a little bit of bready malt. The taste is similar to the aroma, but for whatever reason it just doesnít taste quite as good as the aroma would lead me to believe. The flavors seem a bit watered down. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, itís a bit slick, is well carbonated and goes down easy enough. However, at $10.99 a 6-pack I wouldnít buy it again since I can get better IPAís at that same price or cheaper (for example, Columbus IPA or Brew Kettle White Rajah). With that being said, I do think itís worth trying.
