Review: Founders Brewing All Day IPA Session Ale

founders all day ipa 300x179 Review: Founders Brewing All Day IPA Session AleAnother entry into the growing category of sessionable (aka lower alcohol) IPAs, Founders Brewing’s All Day IPA clocks in at just 4.7% abv.

Hailing from Grand Rapids, Michigan, the beer is now available in 15-packs of 12 oz. cans, a way, I suppose, to make up for the lower alcohol level.

The abv is just 0.2% higher than Stone’s recently-released competitor, Go To IPA, but the upgrade is worth it. Here, Founders offers up a rich and authentic IPA, full of piney, hoppy flavors. Lemon and orange notes kick up alongside the rustic, forestlike body, but the finish is plenty big and bracing. Sure, a higher-abv IPA offers a slightly cleaner, crisper conclusion, but Founders’ lower-abv rendition is perfectly credible and, I expect, to many drinkers it will be nearly as good as the real deal.

B+ / $NA (same price as the old 12-pack, we’re told) / foundersbrewing.com
