COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

ABV: 5.2%
IBU: 40
Malts: 2 Row, Victory, Vienna & Munich
Hops: Magnum, Centennial, Cascade & Galaxy

From a can throwing cornhole, aroma is sweet and citrus. Taste is smooth and light bitter finish, great pale ale

Crash_the_dog (163) - Fairway, Kansas, USA - APR 24, 2013
Perfect pour out of 16 oz can - deep golden color with a thick, creamy head. Hops are at the forefront if the flavors, but aren't overpowering. There is a nice crispness the the mouth feel, which paired with the relatively low ABV makes this beer very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A-Bright Orange/Amber A-Big Citrus nose T-Malt is quickly subsided with citrus notes that move to bitterness. A nice snap at the end P-medium mouthfeel and carbonation that balances the hops O-Very drinkable Pale Ale with citrus and bitterness stealing the show at the end. I’ll try not to let the design of the can sway my judgement..very cool.

Aroma is a grapefruity citrus scent. Taste is a nice hoppy citrus, orange, grapefruit flavor. The malt is very prevalent also, nice caramel and grainy flavor. Overall a very balanced beer. One of my favorite pale ales.

Large head from the can, average bitterness with no distinct flavours, could not notice the "hop rocket" as the hops seemed to add bitterness but not aroma or flavour. Finishes clean with little aftertaste.

mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - APR 1, 2013
Nice session pale ale. Slight melon aroma. Good mouthfeel, with a unique combination in taste of hops and a wee bit of sweetness, the latter presumably from the galaxy hops. Even more wee bit of lingering bitterness. Would love to see an IPA version of this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Stevesie (336) - - MAR 24, 2013
On tap, McNellie’s Tulsa. Dark gold/light copper with a thick white (?) head. Nothing remarkable here, but very drinkable with the usual Tallgrass quality. Bonus points for the art work on the can.

crowderm (382) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Solid Pale Ale here. Copper pour with thick off-white head. Subdued hoppy aroma, a bit of tropical fruit/peppery bitterness. Flavor is similar, but a little more tinny than I was hoping. Nice brew.

SODAK14 (333) - Rapid City, South Dakota, USA - MAR 16, 2013
It wasn’t a bad brew in the first fulls sips. It was just too hoppy for me. I couldn’t even finish a pint... Might be a score for a Pale Ale fan though.

Not your typical pale ale. Good hops, but very sessionable at only 5.2% More of a light ipa than a pale, but the best of both
