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%

12-oz can. Thanks, G! Wow, what cool label art these guys have. Dig how they integrate the name and the visuals and the beer so well together. Pours a cloudy medium amber with a loose whitish head. Nutty, toasty nose with some soft herbal hop complement. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Light caramel, a bit of nut, and some grassy, herbal hop on the mid palate. Tastes quite a bit like an early version of a recipe, though itís made so well that that seems unlikely. Just a very restrained flavor and aromatics profile.

Clear gold pour with a tall white head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt and floral hops. Well balanced decent brew.

16 oz. can. Pours lightly hazy orange-amber with a thin disc of loose foam. Aroma is citrus, caramel, biscuit and dusty toasted grain. Taste has light citrus zest and resin, caramel, green herb, soured orange and a dusty-toasted corn finish that shows hints of dry cocoa. Near-medium body incorporates a medium-high carbonation that borders on annoying, but has a nice balance.

MNAle (109) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 29, 2015
Amber color, 1.5 inch off-white head that recedes slowly, leaving some lacing. Moderate to active carbonation. Typical pale ale hoppy aroma. Nice but as expected. Initial taste is a bit malt-forward, with the hops coming through in the middle. A nicely bitter aftertaste. Tingles the tongue and has a moderate feel - not thin, but not thick, either. This is a very well made, nicely balanced, tasty pale ale. Recommended.

Iíve yet to have a mediocre Tallgrass brew. This is another fine Tallgrass product. A great smooth brew that is very easy to drink and refreshing. Light ale with pale hop flavor and smooth, light bitterness. A bit peppery as well.

16 oz can poured into a tulip-style pint glass. Thanks to my friend Ed for the trade. Clear yellow with 3-4 fingers of off-white head. Aromas of aged hops, biscuit, light citrus fruit and peel. Tastes of biscuit, citrus fruit and peel, aged hops. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Probably past prime but no best by date.
