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!

12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear light brown with just a tiny fizzy head. Ok lacing. Aroma of biscuity malt along with a little bit of caramel. Some light citrus from the hops as well. Flavor is quite malty with a lot of biscuit that reminds me of Fat Tire. Some wood in there along with caramel. Some citrus from the hops comes in later with some orange and pineapple. An aggressive bitterness leads to a crisp finish. This is one impressive beer. I love the maltiness along with the nice bitterness to balance it off. New Belgium really hit a home run with this one.

Light toffee, hints of grapefruit, and peaches meld in the fruity aroma. A solid malt backbone carroes this well balanced American pale. Easy drinking but very flavorful, you will definitely Dig this Dig. Medium bodied, with a quenching summery feel. Pours a crystal clear amber.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - FEB 4, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours orange with sticky khaki head. The aroma is quite tropical, dominated by mango; there is a hint of peach and some iced tea in there, too. The flavor has more citrus than the nose, along with a dusty hay note. It finishes with a caramel, wood, and varnish. easy drinkiní.

This an enjoyable beer that I enjoyed. Huh? Character minimum? Whatís that? More description, you say? OK, hereís the deal - I like clean crisp, APAs, but at a certain point, I run out of ways to describe them. Citrus, caramel, itís all there. I mean, Itís not really innovative, just a tasty session pale that I will drink a lot of.

Cybercat (3384) - Georgia, USA - FEB 3, 2012
Pours a lovely dark, transparent amber with a fairly thick, if not persistent, light tan head. Aroma is hoppy and malty with a fruity hint, rather inviting. Crisp, lip-smacking flavor has a strong hoppy note and fruity and malty notes, with a hoppy undertone and a powdery hint. Smooth texture has average body and a good amount of fizz. Definitely worth a "dig" to find it!

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 2, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep orange with a small white head. Aroma is lightly citric lemon and a touch melon with some sweet honeydew and orange peel. Flavor starts sweet an melon very soft, before picking up some light Citric and orange. Finishes sweet and soft caramel. Medium body and soft carbonation. Ok

BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Bottle (best before of 13May12). Pours with a completely clear orange to very light copper hued body with a large and lasting bone colored white head. Great lace and retention. Aromas are of lemon zest, citrus hops, lightly dank, candied ginger and orange, passion fruit, light, dusty and bready malt, some mango. Really zesty. Mild alcohol noted. Flavors are a bit more malt forward than the aroma. Soft, bready and biscuity. Very nice malt flavor. Bitterness is pretty low and in the background. Hop flavors are also sadly a bit more subdued than the nose. Citrus, lemon, grapefruit pith, light pine-sol. Some peach. Dry, medium to light bodied with fuller carbonation. Good pale ale!

3fourths (8103) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2012
bottle. clear light amber with a quickly-dying off-white head. the sorachi ace provide a strong lemon character and the nelson sauvin adds more fruitness (generic, not exactly passion fruit / mango / etc). saccharine sweet and oily / syrupy / filmy on the tongue. bready but lifeless and stale wheat-cracker malt is a bit rough and husky. all-together a rather boring, forgettable and lifeless beer.
