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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Total Wine and More. Pours a clear copper with a creamy beige head and good lacing. Nose is a medley of hops, with citrus, flowers, pine, earthiness ,and tropical fruits, Medium in body. Smooth in mouth feel. Flavor is big on the tropical fruit and there is just the right amount of bitterness for an APA. Finishes very flavorful, and dry and lightly bitter. Really tasty.

New Belgium Dig Pale Ale has a thick, creamy, white head and a clear, bubbly, amber appearance, with nice lacing left behind. The aroma is of citrus, hop oil, sugar, and white bread. Taste is of those, with some pleasant and mild bitterness. Mouthfeel is watery and slick, and New Belgium Dig finishes semi-dry, refreshing, and quite drinkable. Overall, this one is very nice, and I score it as being excellent. RJT
