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

Can. Light golden pour with white head. Somewhat weak aroma that is hoppy and grassy. Bready, grassy flavor with bitterness. It seemed like this beer was a lot better and more fresh when I had it on tap at Martin City Brewing Co.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2013 16 oz can purchased at Royal in Kansas City, Missouri. 12 207 stamped on bottom of can. The pour is golden tangerine orange, hazed, with a two inch off white head. The head is lasting, eventually falls with pretty lacing. The aroma is tropical fruit, light resin, and a bit of toasted cracked malt. Fresh nose. The taste is the tropical fruit, sort of mango-pineapple, up front, turning a bit grassy resinous, but very gently, and then finishing with the soft clean cracker malt of the nose. The finish shows some light pine, mineral and is quite dry. The palate is light to medium bodied, fine carbonation, unfiltered mouth feel and the dry crisp finish. Really easy drinking beer, this will be great for the summer.

Can pours a pale copper with a large off-white head. Aroma of grassy hops bready caramel malts, and grapefruit. Taste similar to aroma bitter grainy bready malts, citrus with a bitter hop sting. By no means amazing but really enjoyable and sessionable.

Poured from 16oz can into lager glass. Aroma: floral hops pretty strong, lemon, tiny bit of grapefruit, grass, hay Appearance: 4 finger head mountain that faded very slowly. fairly pale golden color and hazy Taste: light sweet, light sour, medium bitter. Palate: Bitter finish. Medium carbonation. light body, slick texture. Overall: Very session-able beer. Not a ton of flavor but whats there is good. MIght pick up again in the future. This would be best for drinking during hot weather.

16 oz. can. Pours hazy gold with white head. Aroma has a somewhat old grapefruit/earthy smell, small malt backbone in the end. Flavor is much the same with an earthy bitter finish, light astringent. light-medium body with medium-high carbonation. Is ok but im not a huge fan.

A smooth drinking pale ale with a medium bitterness. The hops don’t sing though.

Can from Heritage. After so much talk about this, I am disappointed. Light gold color. Mild aroma of hops, but really not enough of it. Dry, bread flavor with very little hops at all, I would compare this beer to Summit EPA. For $3/can, I would stick to Furious. This beer is not bad, but it does not have a lot to offer.

Awesomely video-gamed can - My first foray into Tallgrass...excited! Pours wiht a massive foamy white head atop a lightly hazy light amber pour. Hints of onion and garlic on the nose, with overripe tropical fruit and a musty maltiness. Not hugely pungent like I expected, but mellow and subdued. Taste is a bit of a letdown. Malt is dominant throughout--mellow, doughy malt mingling with the same overripe tropical fruit, yeast, and a finish of onion/garlic and lightly pine hops. Big and slick, with smooth carbonation. Not bad, but I expect something with "Hop Rocket" printed on the can to be a, you know, hop rocket.
