New Belgium Digon February 2, 2012 at 10:06 am
Need a new beer for the Superbowl? Try Dig from New Belgium Brewing. This pale ale has an interesting hop profile with Sorachi Ace, Nelson Sauvin, Cascade and Centennial hops. Malts include pale and C-80. I picked up a six pack at the Brookings Liquor Store for $8.49.
ABV = 5.6%
IBUs = 36
This ale pours out a medium clear amber into a pint glass with a white head. The aroma and taste are complex with lemon and tropical fruits up front with some hints of pine. This is a nicely balanced ale and is very drinkable. It is be a great choice for your Superbowl party. I wish the Vikings were playing (there’s always next year), but will not miss out on this annual event. Good luck to the Giants and Patriots. I hope the game is close. Cheers from the beer desert of South Dakota!
