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.

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 (4618) - 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.

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.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JAN 2, 2013
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.

Shared can at Papsoe’s summer tasting. Pours a shimmering bright gold, topped by a low blond head. Light fruity hop aroma; Tropical, oranges and faint lemon. Medium malt body, lightly toasted with a caramel note. Clean fruity bitterness. Balanced malty/bitter ending. A decent, straightforward pale ale. [14.07.12]

16 oz. can. It pours a bright orange color with a nice white head. The aroma has some dry grainy malts with some orange, spicy hops, and a touch of florals. Not really that strong on the aroma. The flavor is pretty much the same with stronger bitterness than I expected. Good hop flavor with noticeable, floral and orange with some citrus rind in the finish. Dry grainy malts come through. Dry finish. I was surprised there were Galaxy hops in here, as I didn’t pick up much tropical fruit. Just the orange. Overall, this was a nice enjoyable APA.
