Mighty Arrow pours a hazy light copper with active bubbles and two fingers of head. There is some moderate lacing, and the head sticks around like on an IPA...so the appearance is great. The nose is slightly hoppy and malty. The taste is very smooth and well rounded with a warming/bitter flavor that reminds me of a winter warmer; there is a nice crisp bite to this as well. I was expecting something more fresh and hoppy, but was surprised to find a more dirty and malty taste with some herbal spiciness. This is a late winter/earlier spring seasonal (for me) because it lacks the refreshing qualities of a typical spring or summer seasonal. This is a solid beer though, I'd love to try it on tap.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. bottle, with best by date June 15, 2014 printed on the label. Another new beer to me from New Belgium, acquired as part of the spring folly pack.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a brassy golden orange colored body with excellent clarity and two fingers of fluffy white head. Nice stringy scattered lacing. Looks very nice.

S - Smell is of bready biscuit malts and some pungent grapefruit / pine / citrus hop presence. Subtle peppery yeast presence also noticeable. A tame, but pleasant aroma.

T - Taste follows the nose - bready honeyed malt paired with a light earthy / piney / grapefruit hop bitterness. Lightly grainy. Nicely balanced. No alcohol detectable.

M - Feel is smooth, crisp, and clean. Light honeyed breadiness lingering on the palate. Lightly sticky. Medium bodied with good carbonation.

Overall, a very nice easy drinking pale ale from New Belgium. Nicely balanced, with a well-hidden, moderate 6.00% abv. Nothing spectacular or groundbreaking here, but it is good solid drinking.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Clear gold color, small white head but nicely bubbly with some sticky lace. Aroma is lightly sweet, saltine crackers, soft floral hop, hint of pilsener-like spice, bread dough, and a smidge of lemon. Flavor is very similar. No surprises. Mouthfeel is smooth, lightly resinous and a weeee bit syrupy over a light body. Bitterness is light but does exist just enough for some added excitement. Not bad. Nice clean flavors.
