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

On tap at Burnhearts through an apricot and sage infuser (I think). Hazy straw yellow with a foamy bone topper that leaves plenty of lace. Aroma is grainy with light fruit, apricot and mild spices. Taste is grainy with pale malt, fruit and mild bitterness.

akoeninger (490) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Fruity, tangy aroma. Hazy amber color. Good amount of hop flavor for an APA. The hop profile is a bit sweet and melony. Good balance and just the right amount of hoppy aftertaste. Solid beer all around. Not sure u noticed the difference of using the Galaxy hops as much as I thought I would.

Very nice pale ale. Serious dosage of hops gives it a floral, grassy, and fruity taste and aroma. Very nice.

badgerben (4502) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 28, 2012
Hazy copper color with a medium head. Grassy aroma. Fairly grainy and grassy flavor. Moderate bitterness. I would never have guessed Galaxy hops, as it shows none of the character of that hop.

Steasy66 (995) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 24, 2012
16oz can into Duvel tulip. A- Golden flax with lacy two finger head, hazier than expected, but for some reason looks really appealing. S- Weak aroma of dank hops, really have to swirl it to get much aroma. T- A bit of light malt, some weak citrus and dank hops, overall pretty underwhelming. M- A bit thicker than expected given the ABV and overall lack of flavor, crisp carbonation. O- Pretty unimpressive pale ale, the flavor and aroma just arn’t there. Would not buy again.
