All Day IPA Brewed By Founders Brewing - Grand Rapids, Michigan

All Day IPA is a session ale that has the traditional qualities of an India Pale Ale with significantly lower alcohol. At 4.7% ABV, the beer is highly drinkable, but maintains the intense tropical aromatics and complex flavors consistent with Founders' portfolio.

 

       
This beer was in development for nearly three years before the brewery perfected it. Then, the All Day IPA recipe won the silver medal at the 2010 Great American Beer Festival. Due to capacity constraints and multiple expansions, Founders Brewing Company now feels they are prepared to launch their first year-round product since 2006. Limited distribution is due to the soft hop harvest. "We will never compromise a recipe in order to increase sales," explains Engbers.

   

    
Beer Review from Beer Advocate:
Review by Beer Advocate:
Aroma- Has an intense citrus and grassy aroma from the beginning. Seems as if this was just brewed yesterday! Very fresh and may have been a bit dry hopped?

Appearance- Pours a 1 finger head that dies quickly. Has a clear, golden colored body and leaves a sudsy lacing behind.

Flavor- A HUGE hop punch hits hard from the start. Grapefruit and other sweet, citric fruits pop out and gives it a strong hop presence all the way through. Has a light-medium hop bitterness level at the end. Wonderful!

Mouthfeel- Light-Medium Bodied, Medium Carbonation, Smooth, and a mixture of fruit is left behind with light hops.

Overall Impression- A perfect example of this style! Didn't expect anything less from Founders. This is my first time seeing this brew from them and am wondering why?? Maybe it wasn't offered in the Missouri Market the past 2 years? Either way, looking for more! I suggest you do the same.

History of Founders Brewing
Mike Stevens and Dave Engbers both had steady jobs when they decided to chase their dreams and open a brewery–which meant writing a business plan, quitting their jobs, and taking out giant loans. They figured if you’re going to live life, you ought to live it hard, without regrets.

After some initial challenges, due to making well balanced but unremarkable beers, we were on the verge of bankruptcy. It was at this point that the original Founders team decided to brew the kind of beer that got them excited about brewing in the first place: complex, in-your-face ales, with huge aromatics, bigger body, and tons of flavor.

The Founders Family, a group of passionate beer enthusiasts, has grown around this simple philosophy: “We don’t brew beer for the masses. Instead, our beers are crafted for a chosen few, a small cadre of renegades and rebels who enjoy a beer that pushes the limits of what is commonly accepted as taste. In short, we make beer for people like us.”

We at Founders Brewing Company have been lucky to evolve into one of the highest recognized breweries in the United States. In 2011, Ratebeer.com ranked us as the 2nd best brewery in the world (up from 4th best in 2010), and we have several beers listed in the top one hundred beers of the world on Beeradvocate.com. We were the second fastest growing brewery in the U.S. in 2009, the winner of four medals at the 2010 World Beer Cup, and the winner of two medals at the 2010 Great American Beer Festival.

We are proud to be doing what we are doing, and we give great thanks to our many customers and credit to our staff for whom we continually work to reinvent and provide world-class beers.
