3.33/5  rDev -12.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Poured into a white wine glass (I'm at work, give me a break)

A - A golden amber, tons of tiny little bubbles floating about, a one finger barely off white head and some sticky lacing

S - Right off the bat (as with EVERY NB ale) smells of Fat Tire, lots of sugar, sweet malts, wet pine wood, pine hops, ripe sweet red apple, very subtle yeast, lots of brown/green earth, slight pineapple and common field flowers

T - Right off the bat the signature Fat Tire taste, turns into a very sweet malt, a bit of pine, some floral hops, green earth, terrior, apple? and some yeast funk

M - Mediumish body, okay balance, okay complexity, medium minus acidity and a very long sweet to malty finish

D/O - Very refreshing, easy to drink, not here nor there in flavor, just a decent, easy to drink pale ale, with just enough flavor for me to grab another

Final thoughts - Ale was in a 12 pack that was $13 and a nice 6% abv. I don't think I'd grab a six pack, but I will be drinking all 4 that I got. Very decent beer!

3.33/5  rDev -12.1%
look: 4.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

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.
