Founders Brewing Co. All Day IPA (4.7%)

All Day IPAFor an American IPA this has a rather low ABV, but then it does describe itself as a Session Ale on the bottle.
And considering the low ABV, this still packs a pretty good punch.
The smell is resinous and floral, with a splash of peach and mango juice, and the beer pours a nice bright amber colour.
There’s masses of hops in here, lots of sharp grapefruit and lime zest, some very nice sherbet fizz, and a glug of orange juice.
All this fruitiness is glued together by lots of pine resin and a malt that’s warm and sticky with melted toffee and a little French bread.
I absolutely love the thought of this being a Session Ale instead of the usual middle of the road, polite conservative brews that usually get given that title.
