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.

3fourths (8546) - 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 (7902) - 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.

BVery (7878) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - FEB 8, 2009
BOTTLE: copper pour, aroma is grain, faint hops, and yeast. A little sweet/honey on taste. Decent beer, but not spectacular.

DuffMan (7798) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 5, 2010
Bottle. Clear golden, foamy white head that leaves some delicate lace. Nice pine and grapefruit hop aroma. Light malts, generously hopped with flavours of grapefruit rind and light pine, light in the body despite the 6%. Very good.

Skinnyviking (7729) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2008
Draught. Low fluffy off-white lasting head. Hazy yellow body. Fruity malty aroma without much character. Fruity dry and salty hops bitter flavor with high carbonation and a bit short aftertaste.

sebletitje (7498) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 25, 2009
courtesy of vasdef42. Props to New Belgium. Finally an APA that stands out. Pours a golden/copper with thick off-white head. Aroma of herbal/grassy hops.and some citrus notes. Taste, floral hoppy with thick mouthfeel light sweet honey malts and spices. Some pale malts and tittering fruit notes of grapefruit and some citrus. Overall it remains rather sweet and extremely drinkable. This is one fine beer, well balanced between the hops and the sweetness.

marcus (7441) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 20, 2009
This light amber ale poured with a fluffy off-white head and an intense floral aroma. The flavor is chock full of citrus floating upon a solid caramel malt base. Quite refreshing and fairly tasty.

phaleslu (7419) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 26, 2011
12 oz. bottle from Randall’s. Pours a clear, deep gold color with a thin white head. Aroma of floral, herbal hops, honey, citrus peel, and mild spices. Flavor of floral and herbal hops, pale malts, honey, spices, citrus peel, and corn flakes. Light-bodied, with medium to high carbonation and a spicy, sweet, and fizzy mouthfeel. Good APA, and interesting.

Ughsmash (7353) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 6, 2010
Bottled. Poured clear lighter orange with a short, spotty cap of white head. The aroma picked up juicy orange and lesser pine notes over a sweet caramel base.. soft and well-balanced. The flavor found caramel at the core along with cardboard oxidation-like notes.. a little honey as it warmed up.. bitterness was light with orange and pine again.. finished quick with a dose of orange blossom honey. Light-bodied and dry overall on the palate.. carbonation was on the light side.. just an OK flow.
