wimpyjoe (2963) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2014
Bottle @ 3 Wise Monkeys, Todmorden. Amber coloured, not much head. Dry hopped with a recognisable pale ale texture thatís very dry in character.

Pour - deep gold. Med head. Aroma - slight citrus. Mouth - high carb. Taste - strange hop flavor. Good taste. Good fake IPA. Not as strong in smooth hop flavor like a real IPA. Overall - great session.

ronaldtheriot (1102) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - APR 19, 2014
Founders All Day IPA has a fairly thick, foamy, off-white head, a somewhat hazy (suspended sediment), bubbly, burnished gold appearance, and a bit of residual lacing. Aroma is pineapple, hop resin, and white bread. Taste is the same, with moderate bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Founders All Day IPA finishes semi-dry, easy drinking, and refreshing. Overall, an excellent example of a ho-hum style. Elevated price and disappointing presentation, in the overall scheme of things. RJT

355ml bottle (S-Market, Helsinki)
Lovely grapefruity aroma right from the pour, in the glass there are some nice sweet light biscuity malts. Nice gold, brief tight off-white head. Clean palate, not too sticky, not too watery. Tasty - just some light malt backbone, and plenty of citrussy grapefruity hops. Finish just gently resiny, a little sweet. Slips down easily, could session this, and this would definitely quench my thirst on a hot day. Nice golden bitter.

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 (1186) - 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 StŲrtebeker Atlantik Ale, entry level sessioner).

andriesradu (402) - ROMANIA - APR 17, 2014
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.

mojoman (133) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 16, 2014
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 sŚ let. Bitter, men ikke mere end medium. Crisp, ren, tÝr. Og god.

Brentv (235) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 14, 2014
From bottle. Iím 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, itís missing the punch I like in my favorite beers. Donít get me wrong, this has a a nice color, a pine citrus aroma, and a hoppy pine citrus flavor, but thereís 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 thatís not why I choose a beer, and this just feels thin to me.
