In this retro beer blog, we are going to sample a beer, which is Mighty Arrow Pale Ale, from the past that came back in Folly Pack from New Belgium Brewery. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of New Belgium Brewery. If you have not, please, read those beer blog posts to get to know this craft brewery. Let us get into the beer.
This pale ale has a clear golden color with a nice constant white head. The aroma is a nice citrus notes. The tasting experience has a light carbonated citrus notes with a dry hoppy citrus to dry bitter finish for the aftertaste. It is pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a descriation from their website (www.newbelgium.com):
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. Mighty Arrow makes its return as the revival beer in Folly Packs from January to April 2014.

In closing, I was pretty sad when this beer was retired. I learned at the beginning of the year that this brew was returning to the market. I was a little upset that I had to buy a whole sampler 12 pack bottles to get the bottles. I wished they would release it as 6 pack again. I understand why they did not do that. I love this beer and I love the hops to the malty backbone. It is pretty drinkable and it is perfect for the spring and summer time. I wish they would put this in their everyday beer line up. This is a great brew and I would hurry to the store to get this beer before it disappears again. I highly recommend this Pale Ale. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
