on tap at Buckeye beer engine, nose is awesome, super bright super hoppy but not bitter hoppy just bright citrus. body falls off on the hops but without any alcohol or burn just finely balanced.. this drinks pretty easy.. nice job founders.. though it was cited as 6% abv on the menu I believe it to be 4.7% Spartan213 (11) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - FEB 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a thin head. Great citrus hoppy aroma. Just enough of the hops on the palate but certainly not an overpowering amount. Absolutely can’t wait to drink this on a hot summer day. MAFountain (48) - Cedar Rapids, Iowa, USA - MAR 4, 2012
12oz bottle to a New Belgium Globe
Aroma: Pine, citrus, the usual hop characters you would expect. A very minimal hint of toast character.
Appearance: Amber, slighlty cloudy, minimal head, and no lacing.
Taste: Medium bitterness, not overpowering at all. I
Palate: A light body, slightly oily, yet thin. Average carbonation, with a quick dry finish.
O: For what Founders was probably aiming for with this; they nailed it. It’s an enjoyable, flavorful IPA, that doesn’t overpower you. I liked it.

12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market North Raleigh and shared at the Baltimore Irish Chanukah tasting, 3/17/12. Pours a clear golden color with a thin fizzy off-white head. Decent retention. Aroma of herbal, floral hops and bready malts. The taste is bitter hops, bready slightly toasted malts. Medium bodied, quite drinkable. Butters (4062) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Sampled at the Irish Hanukkah Tasting. Clear yellow pour with ring of offwhite head. What a welcome change of pace after the hebrew jewbelation vertical. Lovely refreshing citrus green grassy pale ale. grapey. Good lingering bitterness is very enjoyable. I can definitely see why this would be so sessionable.

5 oz. flight glass draft from Malted Barley in Westerly, RI.
Appearance is pleasing to the eye. Filtered with a golden bright tinge, moderate head and moderate lacing. Smell is strong of floral fruity hops, some pine, lots of citrus including grapefruit and orange, a bit of pineapple. Slightly sweet malt.
Taste is refreshing, Floral and citrus, a bit of orange and grapefruit, a pleasant amount of finishing hops, and just a touch of bittering hops on the back end. Malt is slightly sweet, very drinkable. Nice mouth feel for the style, this is a summertime beer with more flavor than most.
Overall I was very pleased with this beer. Not my favorite style IPA, but it is certainly as advertised. A few of my friends told me that this beer just isn’t good, but I have to disagree. It’s an easy to drink IPA and that is what it is intended to be, hence the name "All Day." The 4.7% ABV is really condusive to throwing down several at a BBQ! blankboy (7881) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle [12oz]. Pours a cloudy, bubbly, copper-gold with an average size lasting frothy white head. Slightly mild but nice aroma of citrus hops, grain, tropical fruit and pale malt -- simple but pleasant. Flavour’s the same, nice citrus hops and tropical fruit along with grain and pale malt. Moderate bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Just a pleasant IPA, one that I could drink a ton of. sigh_borg (97) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 18, 2013
Pours a crystal clear gold with medium frothy white head. Aroma is intensely hoppy, mostly fruit. I get peach, apricot, maybe green apple? Also a hint of grassy/floral hops as well. Medium bodied, feels full in the mouth but not syrupy at all. Taste is mildly sweet and turns quickly to bitter, but not overwhelmingly so. Bitterness increases in the finish. Taste is really fresh and refreshing. Yum. Definitely a good beer to sip all day. :) JHeath99 (1680) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - JUN 18, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy gold. Smells of mixed fruits. Tastes of fruit and carbonation. Nice lasting palate. alcaponejunior (445) - Texas, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Tan with orange tinges, pretty clear, good head and lace.
Aroma is very nice, plenty hoppy and inviting, more than you’d expect from anything with "session" in the name. Same goes for the taste, it’s plenty IPA-like, while being superbly drinkable, even almost summertime lawnmower drinkable. "Refreshing" isn’t an IPA type of term very often, but this time it just about fits.
