Good APA... But can't hold a candle to Sierra Nevada PA in my opinion. Obviously it isn't trying to be Sierra Nevada, but SNPA is the gold standard for balance, flavor and drinkability.
Dig is a bit sour and zingy on the hop end of things, and slightly toasty caramel on the malt side of things. Good... Not amazing.

Serving: 12 oz. bottle from the Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a nice gold color with a frothy white head. The nose has a bit of citrus zest, cracker and grain notes. Fairly crisp on the tongue with a little King’s Hawaiian roll note and a touch of citrus. Light to medium body with slightly higher carbonation and a pretty clean finish. Solid summer fare.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear golden amber with lasting head and spotty lacing.
Aroma is lemon zest and sweet caramel malts, a little funky dank maybe. More malts than hops here. Taste is along similar lines - malty, a little sour funk, mild hop bitterness towards the end, with a mild bready aftertaste. Medium bodied with lots of carbonation. Easy to drink.

On tap. This is a great summer beer with the hops and the lemon flavors abounding.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Dull brown appearance, but with nice foamy head. Somewhat sourish aroma. A bit bitter on the palette. Taste not unpleasant, but probably not one I would buy again for my taste.

Bold, clear amber with a firm, lasting head. Aroma is slightly citrus with tropical fruits in the back. Light grains finish it off. Flavor has some solid tropical notes, but not overly festive. A bit of cereal grain in the finish. Solid pale. Could easily go through a few of these in a night.

Bottle from South Bay Liquor: Poured a clear golden honey color that was amazingly crystal clear and had a frothy layer of head. Nose is bready with an aroma of biscuit and caramel malts but not much else and oddly enough reminds me of a whiff of mashed potatoes being cooked in the kitchen, wow. The flavor is mostly malty with a easy caramel flavor and only a minor taste of hops but nothing significant to ever make me want to buy this beer again in bottle or on tap.

Nice, smooth pale ale, with mild hops and some malty biscuit qualities that remind me of their Fat Tire. Highly drinkable.

Although I’m not much of a Pale Ale fan, this beer is quite nice! Hop character is strong but balanced with a fruit tinge- not like a lambic or wine, but perfect to make this a very dry, crisp, and refreshing brew. Great for a hot day and very smooth with relatively low carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear copper with about an inch of rocky white head that soon dwindles to a white film - good lacing. Aromas of citrus, lemon, and floral hops w/ some pale malts. Tastes follow with malty sweetness really only coming through as it warms a little. Crisp, med mouthfeel w/ fairly dry finish. Solid pale ale w/ a good hopp character. Straight-forward, nothing outstanding but a good brew. Nice session.
