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

Tall boy thanks to swalden. Hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is malts, old hops, not that fresh. Smooth palate, flavor is lacking in hops (old can), not much going on here.

Color is a little light. Taste is very subtle and not very hop forward. It is refreshing though. Good bit of bitterness, somewhat floral. Typically not a fan of Tallgrass, in fact I haven’t liked a beer yet by them until this. Overall pretty nice reminds me of a dumbed down Daisy Cutter.

16oz tallboy can from Downer Wine & Spirits. Pours a light amber color with a big white head and lots of lacing. Aroma is hoppy, grassy, and I do get some of the melon aroma. Medium on the palate with light carbonation. Flavor is lightly bitter, hoppy, grassy, with a nice bready, malt backbone, and a bitter hop finish. Interesting.

Can. The body is deep gold with a little haze. The large head is slightly off-white. A nose of grapefruit and bread crust. There is also some almond. The taste is a little sweet with the citrus of grapefruit. There is also some hay and a nutty almond finish. A little bit astringent in the aftertaste. This is ok, but boring.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2013 Have had on tap and canned, I live a few states from KS so tap was considerably better. Really love the hop mixture in this beer, has a great floral and citrus aroma to it, pillowy white head with great lacing. Nice hop.taste, really wish I could have this on tap more often!

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Tap. Nice rich orange pour with a fluffy white head. Nose is grassy and citrus. Medium palate. Taste is slight caramel, grassy, herb, a touch of citrus, and a really nice amount of hop and carbonation bite. Really good stuff.

HomeBrewHawk (464) - De Soto, Kansas, USA - MAR 15, 2012
16oz. can served in a SA perfect pint glass. Poured a clear, pale gold with a couple of fingers of fine bubbled white head. Lots of tropical fruit in the aroma. Very fragrant. A little bready malt. Light bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Not as bitter as the aroma would suggest, but there is a fair amount of hop bitterness. Bit of drying mouth pucker in the finish. Very drinkable.

Can (obviously): Pour is dark gold/orange with a thick tight heaqd. aroma is nice tropical fruit and lighter resinous hop and caramel malt, though neither is overpowering. Flavour is floral and fruity hop. Very refreshing. Light to medium bready malt sweetness under that. Very enjoyable APA. Well done Tallgrass. I really enjoyed this one.
