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.

Wonderful can, but thatís unfortunately the best part of this beer... nice aroma, but nothing else to mention.

phaleslu (7173) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 7, 2012
Pour from a 16-oz can at Microfest 2012. Awesome can. Pours a hazy pale golden color with some visible sediment and a white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, bready malts, floral notes, and faint grains- very clean. Same with the flavor, with sweet and bready malts, grassy and citrusy hops, citrus fruits. Clean, crisp, refreshing.

Very clean aroma,and makes up for it with an extra hoppy flavor. A little to hoppy for my expectations. The flavor flavor gets a little lost in the mix.

vyvvy (4499) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 28, 2012
Pours lightly hazy golden amber with a rocky off-white head. The aroma has a funky hoppiness, pineapple, mild cream, floralness and toasty malt. Medium body thatís lightly rough and husky with a nice amount of carbonation. The flavor begins much like the aroma. Like the aroma there are more descriptors for the hop profile, but this is far more balanced that it sounds. The finish adds a bit of citrus that is a bit like smooth lemon and orange. Nice pale ale.

beastiefan2k (2716) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - APR 23, 2012
Tallboy can poured into a Sint Christoffel thin tulip glass. Pours with a medium sized head and a hazy dull gold. Aroma is all hops, kind of vegetal, slightly fruity, and dry. Flavor is a slightly bitter with fruity hops. Nothing new, clean behind the hops, not overly dry, not overly sweet. Everything is kind of middle of the rode. Easy drinking, very much in the APA style. I could drink it again or easily forget about it.

Pours a rich golden color. Smell is floral, some malts. Taste is a good hop/malt balance, some citrus, very easy drinking. Overall a good quality beer.

Strykzone (5331) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 21, 2012
Pint at ITAP Soulard. Had this right after a Palate Wrecker. Almost clear copper gold. This was swampy and grassy with a nice malt backbone. A bit of fruit! Bread, and spice. Nice.

Nice golden color with a finger high head, has some subtle light citrus scents. Smooth bitter taste that finishes well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DalzAle (2001) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - APR 19, 2012
Hazy apricot colored pour, lasting think carbonation and light fresh oranges and hops. Flavor is light bitter oranges, a little biscuity and very light on the aftertaste. Solid and very flavorful pale ale. Iíll definitely pick this up again.
