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.

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

chinchill (3128) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 8, 2015
12 oz bottle dated May 2011 served in pint glass (from notes) Amber colored; clear even with trace sediment at bottom of bottle added; moderate but good lasting ivory head S - fine fruity hops with malt background; would be higher if a bit stronger. T - fruity hop mixture; caramel and pale malt, nicely balanced, although there’s a bitter hop hit in the finish. IBU = 34. M - crisp, smooth and full; moderate/high carbonation.

Old rating. Solid pale. Grassy, slightly citrus, low bitterness, NB yeast taste. Nothing wrong but nothing spectacular.

slowrunner77 (7278) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 4, 2014
"another solid beer in the "regulars" of the NB line. lively but light hoppy aroma and flavor, with the honey sweetness coming out just enough - a little more in the flavor. great summer beer."

Pours a clear amber color with white head. Citrus and floral hop notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with some sweetness and caramel malt.

BrownALEx (351) - Portland, Michigan, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Nice tasting pale ale with that signature New Belgium yeast taste. Part of a variety pack. Might get again.

Campy877 (184) - Michigan, USA - APR 21, 2014
Bottle. Pours a beautiful golden color with a fresh spring hop aroma. Taste is mostly an IPA however with a very strong aspirin finish. The company claims honey malt but I could barely taste any malt let alone honey. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ebarnes (260) - Beech Grove, Indiana, USA - APR 13, 2014
Bottled as part of a sample pack. A really tasty ale that had a nice copper color and ample head. Sad there were only 4 in the sampler. Good beer!

umich03jm (2855) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - APR 6, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear light orange with a medium foamy head that lingers nicely. Aromas of sweet bread, flowers, and light citrus. Taste is too sweet for an APA. Sugary honey, flowers, sweet bread, and almonds. Very dry finish.

JMerritt (1894) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2014
Bottled as part of their 12 pack mix. Sunshade orange in color with a tremendously large and frothy linen white head. Mild-to-moderate citrus aroma (orange peel) with hints of peach and some nectarine and almonds coming out a bit later. Subdued bitter flavor with moderate malt sweetness, though the bitterness does grow a bit throughout the profile. Finish is rather dry with flavors of dried grasses, almonds and stale French bread. A rather light, airy and, dare I say, sessionable pale ale despite the 6% abv.
