UPDATED: DEC 25, 2009 Nice dark amber color with a white head that trails the beer all the way down the glass. Citrus notes are present the entire way through...both in smell and taste. puggy211 (712) - cordova, Tennessee, USA - MAY 1, 2009
Fresh tasting. Smells strongly of flowery hops, but not overly bitter taste.crisp and refreshing. It’s a shame it’s only available seasonally. Wish I could have this more often. SPDickerman (1239) - Texas, USA - FEB 6, 2011
Pours clear golden orange with fluffy white head. Smells hoppy and of sweet malts. Tastes mildly of hops but isn’t really bitter and has a pleasant honey malt flavor coupling. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and present mouth-carbonation, New Belgium Mighty Arrow finishes sweet that shifts to faint dryness. VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - FEB 15, 2008
Huge pine, citrus, and pineapple nose. Deep gold and orange. Great balance. The levels of of hops play through until the finish--almost like an IPA. This is really a good beer and a solid Pale Ale. kangaroo (67) - Everett, Washington, USA - FEB 4, 2010
The aroma is of hops, grapefruit and pine. The finish is short and mild. Wonderful rich hop aroma. A hint of honey in the malt. Pours a deep amber with a fluffy head. Overall excellent. I love any beer that can deliver this much aroma but keep the finish mild.

Nice pale! I particularly dig the amarillo hop nose (without being too strong) and the honey. Well put together. ceegod (26) - USA - JUN 13, 2010
I love this beer - best I’ve had from New Belgium. It strikes me as the Ranger with all the overwhelming qualities toned down into perfection. The midrange and finish are citrus, pine, almost juniper berry like good gin, with an engaging hops finale. Very clean but not sterile. Not so overbearing that it won’t go well with food, but interesting enough to drink by itself. rdenney18 (109) - Lawton, Iowa, USA - JUL 28, 2012
A very good pale. Has a hint of fruitiness, but not over the top. Close to perfect hoppiness.

Not sure why this has such low ratings and no idea why the dont make it regularly anymore. Good stuff Dmalone102 (223) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 6, 2008
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.
