Dig Pale Ale from New Belgium is another fine creation. The beer poured a clear copper with white head that left a nice lace. The smell included citrus and peach. The taste was a bit bitter with peach at the front and grapefruit in the end...decent malt balance throughout. The mouthfeel is lighter bodied ale with good carbonation. Overall it is a good beer, but there is a Belgium sugar twang at the end which I am not fond of...I hope this didnt replace might arrow.

Clear amber color under a persistent bubbly head that leaves behind abundant lace. Zesty, resinous nose...leafy citrus oil, light grain, and a touch of "cattiness". Fresh oily hop flavor. Earthy lemon, stone fruit, sweetness, some buttery malt. Definitely has a certain dank-ness going on. Medium-light bodied with appropriate carbonation. A quality, refreshing Spring seasonal. They seem to be switching up the seasonal selections all the time, but this one's a keeper.

A spring seasonal that has been out for a few weeks in early Feb. seems kinda odd,but heh I picked it up anyway.Poured into a standard pint a clear copper with a frothy 1/2 finger white head atop.Lemony aromas with some caramel sweetness,not overly assertive but not bad.Drunken apricots and caramel sweetness on the palate, the light sweetness makes me wanna grab more,the hop profile is not big but plays a big role in bringing everything together in this beer.Iam not a huge fan of the Sorachi Ace hop but it goes well with the other hops in this beer,a very good sessionable ale here although the alcohol is a little high for that title.

A - Poured out a clear, copper color with a good deal of carbonation. It had a two-finger, tan head of foam that left thin rings of sticky lace.
S - It smelled of grapefruit and other tropical fruits. Some sweet caramel, too.
T - It tasted of sweet bready malt with some tropical fruits - mango, pineapple and grapefruit. A nice spicy bite adds needed bitterness.
M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry finish.
O - This is a really nice brew. I like the choice of hops in this one.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had an amber color and a clear consistency. There was an inch of foamy, long-lasting head. Great lacing.
S: A very fragrant, fruity aroma, with some traces of hops. Sweet and alluring.
T: Tasted of hops, a little malt, and a variety of fruit: Lemon, peach, mango, and some others. An extremely zesty and surprisingly complex flavor.
M: A well carbonated beer with a dry finish. Light-bodied.
O: While this beer seems almost more like a straight up IPA than an APA, it is sweet, smooth and easy to drink.

Best by 13 May 2012.
Poured into a FFF shaped glass.
A: Poured a copper-orange color, crystal clear, and with a webby, sticky solid white head that stayed active throughout the session.
S: Lots of yummy aroma here: There was a huge floral bouquet component that was to die for, as well as a nice fruity and hoppy profile. The bit of pepper-like yeast was also a welcome surprise.
T: Once again, the floral and fruit in spades! Passion fruit, mango, lemon, pomegranate, and quite a hop sizzle! Not too overpowering or sugar... it was just right!
M: Fairly low carbonation-wise, but that actually worked in this setting so that I could get more of the complex fruit notes. The lacing was somewhat ridiculous.
O: This was at least 10x better than I was expecting and I totally welcome that. Also, at only 5.6%, I could easily pop a few of these.

Wow, this is one of the best pale ales I've had, period.
A-Pours a clear deep golden color with a creamy white persistant head that leaves great lacing.
S-Man the smell is FULL of fresh lemon zest, hoppy fruit juice, and a hint of pine along with some slightly sweet caramel notes from the malts.
T-The flavor is full of the same lemon zest up front, with hop fruity juiciness and pine in the back with a mild sweetness from the malts.
M-The mouthfeel is kindof too dry for my liking in this style. It's medium bodied, very balanced with carbonation, hop bitterness and sweetness, but again finishes to dry imo.
O-A very very good beer for the springtime indeed.
