Founders all day ipa
« on: August 10, 2019, 12:36:53 AM »
I finally pulled the trigger on buying some of this: got a real good sale price.
I'm really enjoying this. It reminds me just how much I enjoy simcoe and amarillo together.

Awesome beer at any price. Any time I'm having a party at the house I stock up on All Day IPA so folks can knock back a couple and not get knackered. I also use it in my hummus recipe.

Give me a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale over this any time. I'm just not a fan of Session IPAs. That doesn't mean you shouldn't like it though. Cheers!

I agree with you about session IPAs, although I think the Founders is the best one I've tried.  But they always seem to thin to me.

First time I had it, I thought it was very watery.

Had one about 6 months ago, not watery. I think they tweaked it.

I think the last one I had was 6 months or so ago.  Maybe it was a pre tweak version.

SNPA is a tasty beer.  Love the perfect hop profile.  But everyone has their hangups and mine is crystal. Anything over 4-5% is too much. After one, this beer has me reaching for a bag of pretzels. But I do enjoy that one.

Agreed; I just had the same experience about a month ago. Probably more like 2 years since I had tried it prior to that though, and tastes do change.

   Session IPA is an oxymoron, kinda like lite pale stout.
   The last time I had any was a year ago in eastern TN, even at 2 tallboys for 3 bucks it's worthiness was questionable. I don't think it's even available here, which is fine by me.

I spent most of my money on beer, tools and guns, the rest I foolishly squandered on stupid stuff!

It's 4.7% and 42 IBUs which would have been a pretty good pale ale back in the early days of craft beer,but kind of weak (watery?) compared to today's standards.
My wife kindly told me to get something to hold me over until my latest batch was ready and at $16 for a 15 pack this was well worth the money.

I've had the same experience. Didn't care for it when it came out, but I had some in the UP about a week ago and it was very enjoyable.
