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

Poured gold and perfectly clear with a significant nearly white head. Seemed a little light for a pale ale.

Smells of a bit of citrus but also some berry notes and a bit of funk.

I can immediately taste the bitter hops but the funk and the malt power through in a long and somewhat sweet finish.

Medium body and low carbonation.

Decently drinkable beer. The 'funk' smell and taste to me seemed to be typical of New Belgium and it's sort of reminiscent of a Belgian ale. Nice APA if you want a change from Sierra Nevada, especially in the hops department where I think this beer has the advantage in utilizing some of the more fruity notes from the hops.

Mighty Arrow pours a cooper color with a big fluffy lacing head. There is a weak aroma, with some notes of hops. The taste is rather balanced, some nice hop notes, but has a noticeable malty sweetness. Nice flavors, but could be so much more. Overall its a nice balanced easy drinking IPA.
