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

jackl (5209) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Can from Macadoodles, Pineville MO. Gold pour with a prominent creamy white head. Certainly an attractive beer. Bright lemon sherbet. A bit of sea salt. Dirt-covered grass roots. Light malt body, a bit toasty. Tropical citrus flavors. Dry bitter finish. LIght body, zippy mouthfeel. Overall, simple and elegant.

Nsanders (616) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Pint can. Translucent yellow with a bubbly white head. Honeydew, dry white grape, grains, and viney aromas. Taste is dryly bitter. Medium body with a soapy feel.

Lemke10 (846) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 20, 2014
On tap pours a hazy, yellow color with a foamy white head. Aroma is mild with wheat, citrus, and a touch of hops. Taste is smooth, mellow and delicious. Another must try smooth beer.

hopbag (127) - - MAY 16, 2014
Aroma is citrus and American yeast. Very light pale straw color. Good carbonation aids a thin body. Tangy fruit and plenty of bitterness from the hops. Sweet bready Munich malt in the middle and finish. A fine entry for a light IPA.

EyeAmBaldman (339) - Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Pours a golden color with a white head. I really thought this would be hoppier. Tastes more like a farmhouse ale. Very disappointing.

JCS0629 (25) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 9, 2014
An absolutely beautiful poured glass of beer. Great color and just enough head. A crisp bitter flavor.

kevinator (1114) - The Colony, Texas, USA - APR 29, 2014
Great simple pale ale. Hoppy aroma with a slight grain sense. Not too strong. Light golden color with a thin head. Light weight and clean and crisp. This was like a light IPA. Hops up front that mellow enough to leave you wanting more. Easy to drink with food.

fiercepanda (603) - Missouri, USA - APR 18, 2014
A hazy light orange beer with a medium white head. The aroma is citrus and slightly resinous hops. The flavor is similar and verges on IPA territory.

gschrade (780) - Collinsville, USA - APR 18, 2014
I had this at Flying Saucer. Pours dark gold with a white head. Taste bitter, grass, Carmel. I thought this was ok. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
