On tap at Founders. Poured into a tall almost pilsner style glass. Golden amber color with zero real head poured. Good aroma of hops but not really citrus or piney but almost fruity type hop aroma. Fairly hop forward but pretty light. Like the hops. The back end falls apart a little for me. Lighter mouthfeel. Not bad overall.

Draft. Poured clear copper color with an average off-white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate earthy hop and toasted malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium earthy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew that exceeded my expectations.

Draft at The Bridge. Labeled ’All Day IPA.’ Pours a light, clear, bright gold color with a small white head that leaves an even layer of lace in the glass. Aroma of herbal and floral hops, lemon citrus, grass, and some light malts in there. Flavor of floral hops, lemon peel, lemongrass, doughy malts, minerals, and crackers. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a bitter mouthfeel that has a strange bit of soapiness somewhere along the way. Dry finish. Interesting beer and certainly has a lot going on for a lighter beer.

Tap at Maple Tree Inn, Blue Island, IL: Labeled "All Day IPA". Nose is pretty invitingly hoppy...citrusy and pine resin. The hop flavors are probably too mild and restrained to really be called an IPA, but still an exceptionally easy drinking and refreshing hopped up summer lawnmower brew.

Growler from Founders, poured into a pint glass. Clear gold color with lively carbonation climbing up the glass, and a frothy white head. Aroma is weeds, grass, and piney hops, with some slightly sweet biscuity malt. Taste is minorly sweet and moderately bitter. Crisp clean mouthfeel, quite light. To me, this is more of a highly dry-hopped Pale Ale, like Founders’ own Pale Ale. Quenching and tasty though.

POurs nice mid amber with muted hop citrus notes that drive into a very friendly mouthfeel that shows off the right amount of sessionable hops.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2012 Bottle @ home, courtesy of drfabulous. Thanks Jeff!! A touch hazy, golden orange appearance with a white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Big resiny, piney, ganja, clean pale malty aroma. Tangy, fairly bitter, ganja/resiny hoppy flavor with a sticky, piney finish.

Pailhead (5061) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Bottle: This is labeled as All Day IPA. The aroma consists of lightly sweet citrus, grapefruit, and light grass. It pours a transparent golden-orange with a one finger white head that fades to a soapy film and leaves spotty lacing behind. The flavor starts with quick dose a citrus and a touch of mango. The finish has moderate grapefuit, lighter pine, and a touch of grass. Light-medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, a solid sessionable IPA.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2013 12oz Bottle. Thanks so much Sean! My first beer in two weeks, following a gluten-free experiment that only proved the fact that beer keeps me fat. Fresh, zesty citrus-forward aroma. Ah yes, this is great. I’m so glad Founder’s pulled this off the way it should go and that they can make both this and something monstrous [insert your favorite Founder’s booze and sugar bomb here] of the same quality, under the same roof. Most brewers wouldn’t care to try. The hop action here is awesome. Prickly, alive, and reminding me what fresh green things, sunlight, warm breezes, and long days taste like. The body almost goes a little thin and astringent, but keeps it up, making this one of those beers that I’d put on my desert island selection.
