Today marks my first entry in a review of all things alcohol (Catchy name to be determined later). Now bear in mind I’m not going into exaggerated detail, or reviewing every aspect of the alcohol. I’m going to give a concise flavor profile that may or may not be influenced by the very product I’m reviewing…then again it almost definitely will be.
I’m going to cover Beer, Wine, and Alcohol/Liquor.
I had a Founder’s All Day IPA yesterday. It was very good as IPAs go, I’m a bit of an IPA nut myself so bear that in mind, and especially tasty for a ‘Session IPA’ which is almost an oxymoron in my mind. My only real problem was that it was quite bitter on the back end, and if one were to imagine an IPA to be had during a session one would think low alcohol and ‘drinkability’ (that nebulous term that people argue over). Due to the dank hop character I would not recommend this to someone looking for a drinkable Session IPA. There are others that come to mind when jumping into a session of IPA drinking. However, if you want a really good IPA with a low ABV (alcohol by volume), look no further! If you happen to be a self-professed ‘Hop Head’ then this is a great Session IPA because you’ve undoubtedly bombarded yourself with some extreme hop profiles.
Basically this beer is a Session IPA that hasn’t sacrificed a bold hop flavor. It’s another example of how the people at Founder’s are very good at what they do.
