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, Kim’s Aussie/Border Collie mix who ran (literally) New Belgium for 12 years. When she wasn’t patrolling the brewery grounds, she was famous for her office visits: She never met a tummy rub she didn’t like. Atta girl Arrow.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 13, 2008
On tap at Green Dragon in Portland, Oregon--Served in a stemmed goblet--Poured a hazy amber-copper body with a welcoming thick white head. Biscuity and floral hops coexist in a surprisingly delicious brew. Spiciness and nuttiness linger over an array of citrusy quaffs. This is one of the best "regular" New Belgian brews in a while.

Sweet, yeasty aroma. Honeydew, floral pine hops, bisquit malty. Fresh cut grass, lite spice (clove, nutmeg). Taste is subdued grassy hops up front, nice balanced mid with citus (lime), melon and malt notes. Floral hops finish. Palate is lightly bitter, very smooth texture.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - MAY 6, 2008
Big bountiful head with a nice clear amber color. Very fresh hop aroma. Malty smooth in the flavor with some nice bitter hops. Citrisy very quaffable. Mellow finish. This beer gives full sail a run for its money.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - MAY 5, 2008
12oz bottle. Decent amount of mild citrus hops and caramel malt on the nose. Some dough and dry cracker malt as well. A lush citrus character takes over after a while as well. Pours a remarkably filtered looking amber/gold with a thick white head. Flavor is heavy on the doughy malt with just a touch of bitter hops. Medium bodied with a short finish.

ilovedarkbeer (2233) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 5, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Bman1113VR. Pours a pale orange color with a small white head. Nose is pine, citrus, floral, hops, and bread like malt. Taste is some caramel, floral, and apply. Finish is somwhat bitter but drinkable and an odd taste lingers. Not bad but kind of weak for an apa.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 2, 2008
Beautiful aroma of citric grass, perfume and slight apples. Brilliant pale amber in appearance with a quick head and lots of tiny bubbles. Crisp flavor, tart, some caramel-candy sweetness and bitter finish. Not a bad quaff. Thanks André.

BMan1113VR (7834) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 30, 2008
Sent in a picture. Pours with a big, rocky, white head covering a clear, deep gold body. Nice hoppy aroma with some bready malts. Good lacing and retention from the head. Nice lightly spicey, hoppy taste with a fruity malt back bone over the long duration. Nice level of carbonation.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 29, 2008
Pours a clear orange color with an average, brilliant white, pillowy head which is mostly diminishing but leaves some nice lacing. Nose is pleasantly filled with lots of floral notes followed by light grass, faint orange peel, lightly toasted biscuits, and a touch of caramel. Flavor is similar with floral notes taking the forefront, grass notes are fresh (not dry), and subtle caramel notes now dominate the very mild biscuity notes. Palate is typical; lively, moderately light, and a bit towards a watery mouthfeel. Finishes fairly long for the style with the somewhat sweet caramel middle giving way to a moderate bitterness and notes of caramel, lingering fresh grass, and faint nutty character. Certainly a very drinkable pale with a nice flowery aroma and a decent, supporting malt base. Simple, delicate, but nothing great to say.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - APR 27, 2008
Bottle. Poured pale amber with a thick white head. Lekker floral hop aroma with citrusy notes. Then i tasted it. It seemed flat. There was very little flavor. Little malt, little hop little anything. Thin mouthfeel. A tiny bit of bitterness in the finish. After beginning so well, this beer was a disappointment.
