    New Belgium Dig - I Dig It

    This American Pale Ale is one of the first spring seasonals to hit the shelves and its already going to be hard to beat. Great Citrus and pine aromas, wonderful "forest in a bottle" hop flavor in a light bodied, seasonable beer. I would recommend it.

    I've heard good things so far, and am excited to try it.

    I've had a few pints myself. It's a good beer for sure.

    Another FC resident here. I am going to have to respectfully disagree. Last years spring seasonal "Mighty Arrow" (while good) was very underwhelming, and i regularly ordered something else instead. Dig has many more citrusy earthy hop notes that were not present in Mighty, resulting in Dig being in my fridge much more often.

    As for the big hop flavor, i agree, you won't get it out of Dig, but its a Pale Lager, which is not supposed to be "kerpow" in the face with hops.

    that is exactly why they make our beloved beer in so many flavors! we all have our different tastes - i thought it tasted a lot like the really ho-hum arrow even with the distinct improvements.... i did think they were going for an ale - as a lager - i get it - i just may not like it...

    Very nice!

    It won't set the beer world on its ear, but it is a damn good pale ale!
    Enjoyed a nice 65 degree day here in KC and it was a nice accompaniment to my grilling and chiminea!

    Haven't tried a New Belgium beer that I didn't like! Definitely gotta find a pack of this one!

    Is that what that is? I thought they looked like helectites (from a cave), which would be bad juju.

    Did it!

    Well after a 12r this week I say very good. It has a bit of a bite but not harsh. I have been drinking Ranger almost exclusively since it came out and defiantly milder than that.
