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.

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

Some fruit and citrus in the aroma with a very nice malt base. The flavor has the malt but is taken over by the hops. Very refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle to snifter. Pours a dark gold--almost like brandy or iced tea. About a finger of white, mostly dissipating head. Light to moderate lacing. Nose is slightly skunky with a touch of yeast. Nice mouthfeel. Light zesty fruit, nice hop profile and just a bit of the usual NB earthiness toward the lingering finish. Very good pale.
