Just like those classic video games we all grew up with, 8-Bit Pale Ale is spectacularly simple at first glance yet remarkably fun and complex when you get into it. Our Hop Rocket infuses the character of Australian grown Galaxy Hops into an American Pale Ale, giving a unique tropical, almost melon aroma in a classic American style.

From the can. Pours a nice orange, some hazy and sticky whitish head. Nose is full and malty, toasty malt, some tropical mango in there. Fruity hops and clean. I like the hop blend. Not over the top. Bready malt richness makes this one different. Lacks caramel, which is good. Stiff bitterness and very clean. Outstanding APA.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2013 A very pale ale...packs a nice hop punch for a pale ale...similar to half acres Daisy Cutter in that it has large hop attributes but doesnt pull it off as well... rough around the edges yet a nice pale ale...must be galaxy hops I’m tasting ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a yellow color with an orange tint. Aroma is slightly fruity with a distinct hop and malt smell to it. Taste is slightly bitter for a pale ale, but a simple tasting beer. Decent beer for the style.

Straight from the can... Respectable pale ale here - I really like the 80s retro vibe this thing gives me though.

16oz can from Zipps, the galaxy nose gives me some must, which is weird, the taste is okay.. not tropical at all to me, just sort of grainy, awesome can design saves the beer

TomDecapolis (4617) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Pours a lightly hazy golden amber with a medium bubbly off white head. Aroma of tea, caramel and toasted malt along with some citrusy hop notes. Flavor of the same. Lots of tea notes and was hoping for a bit less of a malt profile.

jredmond (6385) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Can sampled at clockwork’s December 8th, 2012 tasting. Pours a deep, hazy body with thick white head. Aroma is full of spice, wheat and hop. Mouthfeel is medium and pleasant - well balanced with notes of citrus hop, spice and wheat malt. Nice.

16oz can thanks to RobertDale! Pours a hazy, glowing, full orange with a massive, dense, buttermilk head. Big retention and spotty/webby lacing. Nose is dusty, mild butterscotch, ground walnuts. Taste is woody, dusty, chalky, small cantaloupe. Palate nearly astringent, but very minerally, big slate. chalk. Interesting.
