3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a Portsmouth Brewery tulip glass.
The color is a orange/gold with a finger or two of foamy white head with a little thin lacing left on the glass.
The smell is hoppy pine at first. There is a nice sweet malt backbone that does have a presence here in the nose. There is some nice flowery grass aroma here that is quite pleasant.
The taste is bit different with some bitterness charging forward giving a slight resin flavor that is a little off putting. The is a touch of grapefruit and pine flavor there before going into a malt flavor that barely has a chance to get used to before the bitterness returns pop at the end.
The feel of the beer is medium bodied and has a nice drinkable feel to it. There is lighter carbonation on this beer and the low ABV helps bring the flavor without bringing the intoxication.

Bottle at home in garden, 13th April 14. Nice pale ale, light and easy drinking, not a patch on the aromatic Centinial though. OK to try on a hot day

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Founder’s ALL DAY IPA is a naturally brewed American craft beer with a complex array of malts, grains and hops. It is balanced for optimal aromatics and a crisp finish with hints of citrus, grapefruit specifically. The hops are not as brutish as other varieties but they pack a clean, fresh punch that makes this beer perfect for pairing with your favorite medium-bodied cigar, perhaps a fine Alec Bradley American Blend Sungrown. When gently poured into a pint glass the brew emits a golden hue that foams a gorgeous white head. The light feel with bursting flavor is the great paradox that completes this beer.
I characterize this beer as the perfect “weekend beer”, and may be a bit premature by saying this, but this brew has definitely made my list of all-time favorite IPAs.

Nice floral IPA. Not overly hoppy. It's nice to have a session IPA. Drank it out of the bottle so I really can't comment on appearance.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Big flavor from a "session" IPA. Crisp light and no heavy aftertaste. I think it's better canned.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Free Press, Cambridge. Light amber with low visible carb and almost no head. Aroma of guava, pineapple and lemongrass. The taste is bittersweet throughout the profile. Not crazy about the aftertaste. The carbs and medium body make for a nice palette. Best beer of the night for me.
