COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
MIGHTY ARROW Pale Ale provides lots of pleasurable sniffs from Amarillo and Cascade hops with a fetching honey malt base. This is our brewed tribute to Arrow, Kimís Aussie/Border Collie mix who ran (literally) New Belgium for 12 years. When she wasnít patrolling the brewery grounds, she was famous for her office visits: She never met a tummy rub she didnít like. Atta girl Arrow.

Bottle from sampler pack. Pours clear gold with creamy white head. Aroma is floral and citrus notes, cereal and biscuit malts, light spice, and some lemon zest. Flavor is dry malts forward, light fruit esters, light floral hops, and faint toast; dry finish. Light/medium and medium carbonation.

From a bottle. Pours very clear light copper with a foamy frothy off white head and lots of lacing. Tastes malty, nutty, lightly hopped. Dry aftertaste. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet malt.

Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Karl Strauss pint glass From: VONS in Normal Heights (San Diego), Calif. Price: $12.99 for a variety Folly 12-pack (w/ VONS card) Purchased: March 2, 2014 Consumed: March 2, 2014 Misc.: Best by June 15, 2014 Poured a caramel amber clear color with 3-to-4 fingers of frothy khaki-white head. Lots of bubbles coming up. A healthy dose of layered foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Very good retention. Smelled citrus hops, apricot, peach, floral hops, caramel, honey wheat, lime, pine and some roasty malts. Tasted a bit darker than the smell. Got caramel, roasted nuts, floral hops, honey wheat, lighter citrus hops, light apricot and faint pine. Light body. Creamy-to-oily texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, but refreshing finish. Just a very nice pale ale. Would definitely have it again.

Great pale ale. Nothing exceptional, but eagerly quaffable and on par with the high quality brews that New Belgium continues to produce.

Bottle at friendís wedding. Aroma was slightly sweet malts, nice toasted notes and plenty of sweet, pine hop character. Flavor was nice, easy to drink hops and malts. Well balanced. Pretty easy to drink. I think this one would be easy for the newcomer but interesting enough to keep the serious beer drinker entertained.

Not a big fan of heavy hops. Pretty rich golden pour with a little bit of white head. Hop bitterness last a while in the after taste.

1guywith_aboat (212) - phenix city, Alabama, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Pours golden. Nice aroma but very light. Slight citrus hop with even slighter biscuity malt aroma. Flavor is just like aroma; very light. Nothing offensive, however. Good beer for a hot day after work or doing yard work. Light body, shy hop bite, very light but good nonetheless.

This is a very nice crisp refreshing ipa that isnt too over powering, a enjoyable brew that goes down easy

chucklemation (404) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Poured from a bottle with a yellow color and a foamy white head. Has a light hoppy citrus aroma. Unfortunately I didnít get much of a flavor from this. There was a touch of citrus and hops. It does have a nice medium body mouthfeel. Overall just okay. Maybe a revisit will change my mind, as I did have this after having a couple of other beers with strong flavors.

Pleasant, innocuous mouthfeel with some lemon grass notes. Thereís some moderate, fleeting hop complexity going on, but not enough to overwhelm the style. Decent brew that would pair well with most foods.
