3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355mL as "All Day IPA" thanks to mikem409. Super fresh bottle consumed two weeks after bottling! Pours clear, correctly filtered and non bottle conditioned orangish gold with lower carbonation and a medium, white, rocky head. Suddy lace. Nose is fresh orange juice, light mango, Valencia orange, sweet mangosteen, lemon zest, herbal hops, candied tamarind. Mild waffle and pancake sugary malt quality. Taste is quit old school- rich biscuity and full with faux diacetyl ending with sharp, herbal hops and juicy orange. No true diacetyl. Finish is super clean and light with hints of herbal soapiness and quenching saltwater. So good for 4.7% and bonus points for that. My sick girlfriend said it tasted like "grandma’s biscuits with hops." Terrific session beer. Thank the lord for this!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled at CBC 2013. Clear golden color, small to medium sized white head. Smell and taste lightly malts, moderate to heavy hoppy, lightly grapefruit and tropical fruits but mainly bitter hops. Nice flavor though and combined with the reasonably low ABV I’d say this is a very nice beer.

355ml bottle at Glød. Nicely served in a tall tulip shaped glass. Decent, lasting white head, snowy lace. Hazy golden coloured body. Moderate aroma of grapefruit. Similar taste profile added by a caramel touch. Semi-dry ending of citrus shells. Easy to drink. Session ale, indeed (Oslo 13.02.2014).

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2013 bottle. pale malt body with a white head. bright dried fruit and resin hop nose, very much like citra and simcoe. a bit of cheese rind and BO must at play as well. the body is wonderfully dry, carbonation soft, hop acid tingly, zesty, fresh and vibrant. maybe a bit over-hopped for it’s size but that’s a minor complaint given how soft, floral, fruity and well-integrated the hops are with the pale malt. delicious beginning to end. Re-rate: husky, resinous, messy. Disappointing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at Kalamazoo Beer Exchange (as "All Day IPA). Pours a lustrous clear yellow-orange color with a medium bone white head that burns away steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Light body with a moderately bitter hops character that has grassy and fruity notes. Malt and caramel in the background. The finish is hoppy with a citrus aftertaste. Solid "Session IPA" overall.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler as Founder’s All Day IPA thanks to womencantsail. Pours with a clear old body with a smallish off-white head. Aroma is huge, big time grapefruit and citrus hop character. Lightly dank. Minimal malt. Clean. Flavors of tea, grapefruit, tangerine. Fruity, bready, estery. Lively bubbles. Dry. A bit of papaya on the back end. Quite well done!
