I don’t love this beer. Lots of bitterness but not that much flavor, mostly floral notes, and a long bitter aftertaste that makes it not feel very refreshing. No sweetness at all for balance.

Can pour to compare to bottle. Sunshine yellow with white head. Aroma is huge notes of citrus. Just an outstanding beer. Not to bitter with just the right amount of hop. A true companion for these upcoming summer months. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bartlebier (1184) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - APR 18, 2014
(backlog, retrieved from lost notes 2013) Tap at source, MI 09/2013. Poured an expectedly thin bright gold with quickly vanishing head. Floral nose, with inviting lemongrass and light pineapple notes. Taste is thinner than expected, reiterating some of the pine and lemon notes, gone in a very quick finish. Not sure whether it was the keg that night, but given high expectations, ratings and a dire need for more flavoursome light IPAs, this failed to impress and did not invite our group to much sessioning. To be revisit from bottle... (note: very reminiscent of a few Störtebeker Atlantik Ale, entry level sessioner).

From tap @ BBF 2014. Pours clear golden with a small white head. Moderate hoppy aroma, tropical fruits, mango. Flavor is moderate bitter with a long duration, tropical fruits, citrus, a bit weak.

Tap at ML Rose West: Ah, the first Founders brew on tap in TN that I have seen. A session IPA but still good on hoppy flavor. Aroma of pine/hops, decent color and a dry hoppy taste. Not my fave brew from Founders but it definitely has it's place as a session. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JanLaursen (2731) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 14, 2014
Fra fad. Har glemt barens navn, men det var i Greenwich Village. Orangegylden og klar med et ok hvidt skum. Frisk, humlet sag. Masser citrusfrugtige og granagtige humle-noter. Let, men ikke så let. Bitter, men ikke mere end medium. Crisp, ren, tør. Og god.

Brentv (232) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 14, 2014
From bottle. I’m a fan of big beers: Imperial IPAs are one of my favorite styles. This is a session ale, and while it packs a lot of flavor, it’s missing the punch I like in my favorite beers. Don’t get me wrong, this has a a nice color, a pine citrus aroma, and a hoppy pine citrus flavor, but there’s no head, no lacing, and it has a thin mouthfeel. I admire the effort, and I understand that this is the perfect answer for someone who wants an IPA flavor profile without the associated alcohol, but that’s not why I choose a beer, and this just feels thin to me.

Duhast500 (374) - Cumberland, Rhode Island, USA - APR 14, 2014
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.

CraftBeerNick (751) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2014
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

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.
