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.

Bottle from Icecody69, thanks! Golden color. Tangerine, red berries, flowers and hay in the aroma. Tangerine and red berries in the earthy, slightly oily hopflavor, lingering on in the aftertaste. Pineapple. Friendly, very pleasant ale.

Ratman197 (9686) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 27, 2008
On tap @ Falling Rock poured a clear amber with a small lasting white head. Aromas of pine, citrus and carmel. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmewl, light pine and a hint of citrus with a smooth lightly bitter finish.
This beer turned out to be a big dissapointment, Big hops in the nose but the flavor just was’nt there.

BeerandBlues2 (9596) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - FEB 17, 2008
Draught at New Belgium. Pours clear amber with an average, fizzy, white head, mostly lasting with good lacing. Aroma is average malt (bread, grain), heavy hops (flowers, perfume, pine), average yeast (sweat) with notes of apple and pear. Medium bodied, oily and gritty texture, lively carbonation, and a bitter finish. Average duration, light sweetness, heavy acidity and bitterness.

hopscotch (9082) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2009
Bottle… Lightly hazed yellow ale with a small, creamy, white head. Pretty good retention. The aroma is a delicate blend of toffee, honey, grapefruit and Mandarin orange. Medium to full-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and radiant carbonation. Leans slightly on the sweet side of balance. Some mashy and toffee aspects. Finishes crisp and lightly bitter, then sort of dries out and fades away. Bottle provided by brokephibroke!

daknole (9049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 4, 2010
Deep gold pour, nice big white head. Citrus hops, light lemony notes and some very light caramel malt. Nice depth of flavor for a pale. A good mix of citrus hops and some sweet malt backnotes. Not bad.

adnielsen (9013) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 1, 2011
Tap @ brewery. Golden yellow orange appearance with a white head that disappears pretty quickly. Bushy hoppy nose. Pretty bitter hoppy flavor. The hoppiness is a mild bushy, piney flavor. Pretty mild yet refreshing IPA.

Drake (8322) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAY 31, 2009
12 ounce bottle from the Libation Station in Johnson City, TN. Pours a hazy reddish amber color with a medium head. Decent head retention and fair speckled lacing. Aroma is leafy hops, citrus and honey. The taste is very hoppy with grapefruit, pineapple, peach, light resin and honeyish malts. Medium bodied. Hits

3fourths (7977) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 20, 2008
Draft at New Belgium. Clear honey amber colored body, white head dies quickly but leaves sticky cobweb lacing on the glass. Strange blandness up front, pasty across the middle, with some sharp and moderately bitter hops notices... dry, catty, tastes like fresh cut pine. Strange and sort of gross flavors... something like catty simcoe mixed with a harsh cracked grain character. Body is medium up front, falls apart in the back... a nice simcoe/catty/pine hop aroma is noticed over time, but there’s too much wrong with this beer to do any good. Simple, unimposing, but boring.

BMan1113VR (7854) - 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.
