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.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2008 This is an interesting take on an APA. It has a good cascade aroma nice caramel sweetness slight note of honey. A little on the soft side for a Pale Ale, nice mild bitterness and modest sweetness. I could drink this beer often and in mass quantity. My favorite from New Belgium so far.

Bottle. Clear, golden pour with a medium head that dissipated quickly. Aroma of herbal hops as well as sweet malt and caramel. Similar flavor with a nice carbonation.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUL 2, 2008
On tap at Famous Dick’s BBQ. Pours clear bright copper with a thick and lacy white head. Aroma of earth and citrus. Medium body and carbonation. Citrus, apple and toffee taste with a bit of bitterness, grass and touch of tartness in the finish. It held up well against the barbecue.

Trev (1868) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 28, 2008
Pours a clear pale amber colour with large tight creamy off white head. Aroma is nice floral hop. Light citrus-grapefruit, some caramel. Flavour is not as hop forward as aroma suggests. Nice earthy sweet malt presence, a little peppery. Good balance with the bitterness. Very nice APA.

Bottle. Clear amer color. Very earthy smell to it. A light bitter/sour aftertaste which becomes more delightful. A nice choice of drink.

stankenk (130) - Maplewood, Minnesota, USA - JUN 7, 2008
The nose is a very hoppy. A very smooth easy drinking pale ale. This has a very fine light finish that just makes you want another. I have yet to be disappointed with anything from the New Belgium brewery. Even if your not a pale ale drinker, I would highly recommend trying it.

New Belgium amazes me with how they are able to break their usual mold, yet keep their signature flavor... and still make an incredible beer! Mighty Arrow has a bold hop character, which is sort of out of the ordinary for New Belgium. The One thing that I think of with this beer is... BALANCE. When I think of New Belgium, I think of that signature malt character, you know... that nutty, Fat-Tire-esque flavor. I love that flavor, and it is paired nicely with the bold hop profile mentioned above, to create a very balanced pale ale. Definately worth buying.
