Draft on tap at Map Room with Drew after Kan’s. Awesome. Pours a nice glowing golden hue, a nice bigger thick bright white head, laces well frothy and laces good. Aromas are vibrant lemony citrus, grass, and florals, touches of grapefruit. Some bready and pale malts get well covered up by bigger hops. Initial is a bit lighter up front moving into lemons, grapefruit, touches pineapple. Touches of bread dough, pale malts, and crackers. Middle is citrusy, vibrant, floral and dry with good citrusy lemon. Finish is dry, citrusy, and a touch soapy with citrus rind. More of an APA, but a really good one.

Draft at Map Room as All Day IPA. It says IPA, but really more of an APA. Nose is brightly hoppy with a lighty catty note. Some strong citrusy notes in the nose as well. Great nose. Minimal malt character. On taste, firm bitterness and full of citrusy hops. Light malt profile and under-boddied for the level of hopping. A really good beer that I could drink a lot of, just lacking the body to really tie it all together. Solid. ngeunit1 (1555) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 14, 2011
A - The beer is a golden-orange/yellow color with a finger of white head. The head fades fairly quickly leaving behind some light lacing.
S - The aroma is a mix of some sweet malt and some piney hops. There is also some grapefruit aromas mixed in as well.
T - Starts off with a mix of piney hops and some bitterness with a bit of sweet malt in the background. Through the middle, some stronger grapefruit hops and some more bitterness come through. The finish is a mix of hops and bitterness with a touch of sweet malt that lingers.
M - Medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels very smooth and crisp. The beer also feels fairly dry, especially with the bitterness as the finish.
D - Extremely drinkable. Very interesting IPA with as much flavor as it has with the rather low abv level. It is very flavorful and does not sacrifice flavor. drowland (9184) - Georgia, USA - AUG 13, 2011
On tap. Huuuuge dank hop aroma with pot, citrus, pine, and more. Nice hoppy flavor as well but light enough to drink all day. Very nice. BMan1113VR (7930) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 19, 2011
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!

Growler...pours a very clear golden color with a thick, foamy white head...decent lacing. Aroma is fresh and floral...citrus...pineapple and grapefruit...just a bit doughy. Flavor has some pale malt and some spicy grapefruit notes...more spicy than the aroma suggests...tasty. mouthfeel is light and lively and the finish is dry and bitter with spicy grapefruit. Flavor reminds me a bit of a lighter version of sculpin...nice for a lighter IPA! GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 11, 2012
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! jtw (1170) - farmington, Michigan, USA - JAN 20, 2012
12 oz bottle labeled as "All Day IPA" at 4.7%. So really more of an american pale than an india pale ale, but i suppose that’s just semantics. a nice crisp hops aroma: citrus (grapefruit, lemon, lime), cut grass, pine, and a faint pale malt backbone. pleasant to smell, with no alcohol heat whatsoever. a very inviting first splash into my mouth; light-to-medium body, with a balance of malt and bitter hops, ever-so-slightly biased toward the hops and particularly in the finish. airy and lightly bitter finish, almost as if they took a full-blown IPA and simply diluted it to a more manageable/sessionable pale. Still, quite a nice beer and one that i would find myself drinking regularly as a nice break from heavier pale ales like two-hearted or red’s rye. milewide (2332) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Outstanding grapefruit aroma, and lingering hop bitterness. Low ABV "session ale" is appreciated as part of a reasonable beer menu. However, body was thin, and lacking the fuller malt input. zizzybalubba (1891) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 17, 2012
12 oz. bottle from SoHo Organic Market in Elizabeth City, NC. Pours the expected rusty orange with a bright white head. Aroma of grassy and Earthy hops mostly with just a hint of caramel sweetness. There is enough hop bitterness that I would say this is an IPA rather than just a pale ale although the flavor is plenty balanced. There is no wow factor with this beer other than the fact that this is a very flavorful 4.7% ABV beer. That alone makes this one a keeper in my opinion.
