Draft. Poured clear pale color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. Very good brew.

Sample from beerfest. Poured a hazy orange color with a soapy white head. Aroma was pine, floral, grass and hops. Flavor was sweeter up front with a grass, spruce finish. Not overly hoppy but enough balance to really make this beer nice. Good apa.

Tasty pale ale with a great hop-based fruitiness. Grainy and semisweet at first, 8-Bit quickly develops a citric hop middle, before fading into a grassy, grapefruit fade. Nice geek packaging too.

Can via Mark and Matty. Pours a hazy orange with big white head. Nose is floral, some citrus, pine, a little bit of malt. Taste is hop forward with pine, not a lot of citrus, some peanut and slight salt. Overall, very nice Pale Ale and love the can!

Purchased at Breeze Thru Liquors in Milwaukee, WI; enjoyed at a north woods condo on a wedding weekend in St. Germain, WI. Couldn’t pass this one up due to the awesome artwork. Appearance is a slightly cloudy golden hay with a thin white head. Aroma of light hay, grassy hops, kind of grainy, nice light smell. Taste is pretty crisp with a light bitterness and a touch of lemon. There is something very filling about this one, in a different review the word ’biscuit’ was used and that must be it. Pretty good stuff, I can see this be refreshing on a nice hot summer day.

On tap at The Flying Saucer in Little Rock. Pours a crystal clear, pale gold colored body with a finger-width, frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is lighter with some grainy pale malts, some grassy citrus, and a few florals. Flavor is better with a nice grassy crispness up front as well as some citruses before a light grainy pale malt comes in with some florals and a few tropical fruits. Finishes crisp and clean with a moderate, grassy bitterness alongside a pleasant citrus and some tropical fruits. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium-light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a very clean, crisp, and easy drinking pale ale with a nice citrus and tropical fruit hop character. Pretty enjoyable.
