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.

Can - thanks RobertDale. Pours slightly hazy yellow gold with a large white creamy head and nice lacing. Aroma is citrus, pine and a touch of caramel. Flavor is the same with some zesty notes. Just a bit of sweetness and light bitterness. Medium body, bubbly

TheAlum (6935) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2013
16 oz can at The Courtyard (Decorah, IA). Pours a rich deep amber darker pour, good haziness in the middle, frothy whitish head atop laces well as a thicker full film, laces ok. Aromas are mellow to decent bitter hops, lemons and some florals, grass and gentle earth. Touches of bready malts, mellow deadened sweetness. Ok. The hops start to jump a bit more as it warms. Initial is lighter end of the fold, some bready malts meet some florals, gentle grapefruit, faint tropical elements. Mellow on that end, decent to medium bitterness in this beer up front. A touch tropical, faint grapefruit. Some dough, florals, and touches of melon in the middle. Backend is a touch bready, almost toasty. Firm dryness, bitter earthy hops. Touches of florals, mellow tropical fruit. A solid pale that gets a touch sweet at times. A-Ok.

Pours a pale orange with a bit of white lacing. Aromas of honey and sweet citrus. Tastes like Christmas oranges with a bitter pine finish. Nice full mouthfeel with some liveliness. Very good.

Suttree (6052) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 13, 2013
I have to admit, my primary reason for wanting to try this was the snazzy can. That being said, this was a pretty tasty brew - crisp, snappy hop profile with a subtle, toasty malt. Simple, but tasty. Thanks to theisti for the trade!
