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.

One of my favorite IPAs. Served from a can. Pours orange, some lacing, finger of foam. Strong hoppy aroma. Sharp grassy hoppy taste, light citrus lingers.

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.

Pours a deep orange with a medium fluffy off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is hoppy with hints of biscuit, earth, and citrus. Flavor is earthy hops, grass, orange and other citrus, and biscuit and caramel with a crisp hop finish. Medium bodied with heavy carbonation. Quite tasty.

Pours a hazy gold color with a foamy white head and lacing. The aroma is floral and citrusy with some pale malts too. The flavor is plenty of citrus hops up front with a fairly bitter middle and balanced aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a nice slightly cloudy orange with 3 fingers of white head that laces nicely. Nose and taste are of well balanced light malts and citric hops. Very approachable and easy drinking. The can scored it 1 extra point on appearance as it took me back.

Great can, average beer. A hazy, yellow-orange pour with a white head. It has an earthy hop aroma with some mild citrus. The light body has a watery texture with average carbonation. The taste is mildly bitter with a slightly sweeter finish.

16oz can courtesy of Brian. Hazy orange-gold, big frothy white head. Fresh mellow citrus hop aroma. Pretty well done APA, lots of hop character, and a respectable toasty golden malt backbone. Some chewy caramel and rye tones, earthy. Comes off a touch bigger than the ABV would suggest, pretty full bodied. Grapefruit, orange, rind, Good beer, nails the style.

One of the coolest looking cans I have come across. Poured a golden orange with a huge, bright white head and wonderful lacing. Smell is faint tropical fruits, some citrus, and caramel. Taste is well-balanced, tropical fruits, light citrus and a moderately bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel with high carbonation. Not a bad APA, but nothing special.

16 oz can poured at home. Looks great, especially in the backyard in June. Golden and hazy, it fits in with the recently cultivated farm land. Nice white bubbly head w/ good lacing. Aroma has an intense pine scent too it, also gingerbread and a pleasant sourness. On the tongue itís robust and coats the palate well upon finishing. Strong, lingering bitter finish, very enjoyable. I taste more citrus than pine, and itís a pretty well balanced beer w/ the gingerbread malts holding up their end of the bargain. Easy to drink, plus I love the packaging. Recommended.
