COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unearth your bottle-opener because this Pale Ale is something you can Dig. Sorachi Ace hops provides a fresh Spring zing with incredible lemon aroma. Nelson Sauvin is next in line with bursts of passion fruit, mango and peach. American favorites, Cascade and Centennial round out this crisp, clean Pale Ale. Dig in!

Strong citrus and tropical fruit aroma. Definite notes of passion fruit and strangely enough notes of grape stems.. clean malt, slightly toasty with some light caramel sweetness. Finishes dry, clean, and refreshing. An interesting pale ale.

Tasted on 2/25/12 from a 12oz bottle purchased in a mixed sixer at Whole Foods Green Hills. Pours clear amber-orange with an average off-white head that slowly recedes to thin lace, leaving some spider-web-like lace along the inside of the glass. The nose is bright with citrus, featuring some very nice tropical fruit, bitter grapefruit peel, and lightly caramelized malt aromas. The flavor is light malt, tropical fruit, lively citrus, and bitter grapefruit with some pine resin throughout. The body is medium-minus with average, stinging carbonation, and a long tropical fruit, caramel malt, and bitter grapefruit peel finish.

An honest and true APA. Deserves higher marks than I can give it. Dig possesses a great hoppy bite, a rough-and-ready malt backbone and a tickle of yeast that elevates the beer to a higher plane. Why canít I rate it higher? The finish is a little washed-out, and its elegance is lost somewhere in the citric notes that make me wonder if someone brazenly put a deplorable slice of lemon in the tank rather than on the rim of a pretentious glass. Love Sorachi Ace hops, though.

Not at all bad pale ale. Normally Iím not impressed with new Belgium but this is a very good beer for its price.

Amber pour with off white head. Aroma is citrus and malt. Taste is lemon, a little fruity, malty. Crisp finish.

Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is light amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (resin, grapefruit). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately astringent. And the point of this beer is...what? This is about as simple, one-dimensional, and ordinary as a pale ale gets. There is absolutely nothing new, interesting, or different in this thing. Zero imagination or thought went into this...it is the definition of cookie-cutter. "Passion fruit, mango, and peach"??? Nope. Sorry, wrong beer, guys...this is just the same old resin-and-grapefruit thing that every single American brewer, including New Belgium, has already made before. Iím sorry to be so negative, I seriously donít like being like this, I want to have something positive and encouraging to say, I really really do...but beers like this irritate me because they show zero love for brewing. This is a "fulfilling a contract" sort of beer. I at least expected this brewer to add lingonberries or chia seed or something goofy, but nope. It is banality in liquid form. Arrgghh.

A decent APA. Caramel flavor with some citrus hops to it--lemon and orange and a bit of pine. Medium bitter finish. Itís certainly pleasant enough, just nothing special.

Nice aroma. Amber in color. Clear and bubbly. Small thick head thatís tan. Taste quite bitter and reminds me of a IPA not a pale ale. An enjoyable beer for a hop head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from BevMo. Lightly hoppy, grassy nose. Fairly dry in itís hop character. A little spice as well. Fairly easy to sip. Not really very interesting though.
