3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a moderately clear amber color. The head is about one finger high and white, with a somewhat rough-looking texture. It retains itself alright, though, and leaves some lacing on the side of the glass.
S: I’ve noticed how I kind of like catty IPAs, and this one fits that mold. The hops also provide melon, mango, and herbal notes. There is a touch of sweetness, as well.
T: The first sip strikes me weirdly with its finishing herbal hop tones. After another sip, it smooths out nicely. There are twinges of juicy tropical fruits on the front end; I wish this was more pronounced. Otherwise, it’s a simplistic, enjoyable small IPA.
M: I look for these kind of beers to be crisp and light - and this fits that criteria well. I’d enjoy it more if some of the finishing astringency was cleaned up a touch, but this still has good drinkability.
O: Good, not great. As much as I love trying these session IPAs, there’s only one so far I can say I loved (DayTime). Not to mention, session IPAs don’t make a huge amount of sense from a monetary standpoint. Having said that, between All Day and Centennial, I’d choose this one every single time.

Bought a 18 pack of cans for the same price as a 12. Can't beat that with this wonderfully quaffable beer!

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
My first Session IPA. I fell in love with this ale right away. I never would have imagined that a beer could have the taste of a West Coast IPA with the alcohol content of a lager. Hopheads don’t lose out on anything with this brew. It offers all the color, bitterness, and aroma of a more traditional IPA. This ale smells of grapefruit and there’s a hint of grassy hops. As you’d expect, citrusy hops steal the show with lemon, orange, and of course, grapefruit. Yet, the sweet, biscuit-like malts keep the bitterness at a tolerable level. Mouthfeel is crisp and smooth. All Day IPA made my day without impairing my judgment.

Bärnstensfärgad med mellanstort ljust skum. Doftar friskt av amerikansk humle! Endel humle i smaken men väldigt blaskig! Är ju inte så konstigt med tanke på 4.7%

On tap at the Kernels stadium. A golden beer with a yellowish head.. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, hops, and straw, leading to a bitter finish. Good easy-drinking beer.
