New Belgium Dig

CIMG5424

This Spring Seasonal is one of the newest in New Belgium’s lineup. It’s an American Pale Ale that has a bit of twist, with some interesting hop additions. It’s got Pale and C-80 malt with Target, Cascade, Nugget, Nelson Sauvin, and Soriachi Ace hops.

Stats:
American Pale Ale. 5.6% ABV. 36 IBUs. Colorado. Spring Seasonal.

Orange to light copper in color. It’s got a decent head that fades, but leaves some nice looking lacing on the glass.

The nose isn’t as hoppy as I was expecting with that crazy hop profile. You get a nice biscuit malt profile with a mostly earthy and spicey hop profile.

Mouthfeel is solid, a bit light in body, but it makes for an easy drinking brew.

I get some black pepper and earth on the palate initially, then it transitions to a bit of a tropical fruit profile, but it’s quite light. Medium bitterness on the back with a grainy finish.

It’s a solid beer, but I find it pretty forgettable. 86 points.
