Founders "All Day IPA"
Founders Brewing Company - Grand Rapids, Michigan USA
IPA (ABV 4.8%) (IBU 42)

[Best served in a Shaker glass]

Rating: 3.1/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 2/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 12/20

The pour was a cloudy light copper amber with a small (1 finger or less) white fizzy head that quickly diminished down to a very thin film and small collar with a minuet amount of spotty lacing.

The aroma was right up front with a spruce hop, some grain malts and a strong bitter citrus note (lemon peel and orange peel).

The taste was bitter from the word go with a nice strong hoppiness developing slowly and a harsh citrus peel note towards the end. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow with the strong hoppy taste left to linger for a while longer.

Mouthfeel was light in body and dry in texture with a nice mild carbonation.

Overall a very good IPA with a great hoppy finish along with low ABV, make this an awesome everyday brew...
