I was sad to hear that Mighty Arrow was leaving but dayyum Dig is good.

Appearance: Honey in color. White head. Dissipates to a thin layer and leaves a fair amount of lacing.

Smell: Very citrus in nature but not grapefruit. It is very lemony and bright. Lots of hop on the nose. You've probably not had anything like this hop profile in front your nose before. Very unique imo.

Taste: Follows the nose. Lots of lemony citrus. Nice malt backbone as well. A little bitter and a little sweet. The sweetness from the malts compliments the zesty lemon hop profile perfectly.

Mouthfeel: A perfect balance between sweet and bitter means this one goes down smooth. There is a good level of carbonation as well.

Overall: This is a surprisingly awesome beer. Give it a shot and check your prejudice before you pour. NB is pumping out some super high quality stuff right now.

Wow, this is a GREAT APA!! Poured at a good temperature with a large, foamy, billowy, thick, golden tan head, that lasts a long time, and good lace. Color is a very clear orange amber with some nice bubble trails. Aroma is malt, hop, caramel, earth, spent grist, a little fruit and citrus. Flavor's much like nose, very well balanced with the bitter, sweet, and tang just right. Body is just right for this beer, a few round high points from hop and acid, full mouth. Finish is like flavor, quite short and extremely satisfying yet ready for more. Very well done.

Juicy hops, crisp mouthfeel, quenching but makes you want another. I hope this baby is a blockbuster. Per the label, spicy lemon and exotic fruit pour through, from the Sorachi Ace and Citra hops, respectively. Shares the same abv (5.6%) and hopefully the same esteem as what I see as a direct competitor, good ol' SNPA.

Best APA offering I've run into in a long time, such a shame that it's only a seasonal.

Expiration Date of 13 May 2012, very fresh indeed!

Pours amber with 3+ fingers of of cream colored head. Great head retention & fairly impressive lacing

S: Orange peel, lemon & pine

T: Some biscuitty malt, orange peel & tangerines & a touch of grapefruit & pine up front. Juicy hops, a touch of passion fruit & lemon as this warms. Finishes crisp with a bit of light breadyness & a bit of peach & some signature biscuit malt

MF: Light/medium bodied, crisp carbonation, great balance

Damn, this drinks so easy, clearly one of the better hop forward beers I've had from New Belgium. Having said that I really dig (pun intended) Belgo too. Dig would be a nice summer time brew fat into the dog days. A top rung APA to me

Appearance: Nice copper/bronze color. Small tanish white head that leaves too fast but laces nicely. I would like to see more carbonation.

Smell: Fruity, peachy, mango, grapefruit.

Taste: I never had hops that tasted fruity and this good. I don't know what kind of hops is in this beer, but I love it. It's hard to distinguish the sweetness of the malt with the sweet hops taste.

Mouthfeel: Thick and frothy, nice tingle.

This is a high quality great tasting beer that can satisfy an IPA craving. The hops are way more fruitier and less piney than anything I've had before. I love this beer.

Pours a hazy amber with a very white head that laces very stickily. Nose is almost like a mix of three distinct hoppy notes--citrusy, piney, and herbal--with some biscuity malt in the back. The taste is amazing, a big punch of lemony hops, a distinct malty middle, almost like a Saltine with some rye notes, and then a crisp, herbal finish. Mouthfeel is very complimentary, light and highly carbonated, but with enough body to let you ruminate a little bit.

I'd call this one of those seasonals you wish they would make year-round...but with New Belgium's lineup as it is, this one might not even bear mentioning. Good pickup this spring either way.
