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.

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.

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

Tall boy can shared by my good friend dosbeerigos, you rock brotha! Nothing super special about this one but I dig tasty pale ale’s out of the can, and this one just that. Would love a few of these by the pool during the summer time.

Can. Looks amberish. Aroma of citrusy hops and some pale malts. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything, especially the galaxy hops. Average texture. A good pale ale.

NobleSquirrel (3439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2013
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.

Can at the Funky 8, Brooklyn, NYC. A good pale ale. Nice pine, lightly toasted malts. Good balance. Very drinkable beer.
