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

I’m an old computer geek, so this one is a natural for me. 16 oz. can pours a clear orange with lots of bubbles rising to a big, lasting off-white head that creates lots of good lacing. Aroma has melon, lemon, and biscuits. Taste is bitter at start and finish, with some malty sweetness in the middle Body is medium with a slightly sticky mouthfeel and average carbonation. A very solid IPA I am sure to try again.

Yellow with a white head. The aroma is full of biscuit malt with some grass and citrus notes. The flavor is nutty and toffee-filled with some citrus and grass notes. Low bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

thedm (4887) - Fort Wayne, USA - AUG 10, 2013
This canned brew from a beer bar poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a uncarbonated hazy light orange brown colored body. The weak aroma was floral and malt hop. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a mellow hoppy aftertaste. The semi-sharp flavor contained notes of caramel and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

suprchunk (1952) - Crestview, Florida, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Hazy deep golden colored pour. Giant white head that falls slowly. Tons of lacing left behind. Small amount of hops in the nose with a sharp lemon. Some malt. Taste is nice and malty. Biscuit and orange. Slightly sweet in the back with a bit of bitterness. Not bad at all.

12 oz bottle. Pours golden, hazy. Robust initial white head dissipating to and adequate level with lots of lacing. Nose is grassy, lightly tropical. Medium body and bitterness, could use more bitter, finishes somewhat sweet, malty. Not bad at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can from johns pizza. Pours orange with a thin white head. Slight pineapple note on the nose. Bigger citrus on the tongue along with some malty sweetness. Finishes clean. Solid example of style.

Narnad (1416) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Pours a pretty hazy yellow with a HUGE dense, small bubbled, off white head. Aroma has a light grainy nose with grassy, lemon citrus and a funky tropical fruitiness. Flavor is great! The malt comes through adding a great straw flavor while the hops add a slight grassy note, lots of tropical and melon sweetness in the middle with a mild lemon/light orange citrus flavor to finish. Body is perfect for the flavors, light with some density imparted by the haze present and a low carbonation rate. Beer retains it’s head superburbly. Overall a fantastic beer with a good deal of hoppiness but keeps it reigned in to prevent "imperialising" the beer. For a low alcohol and fairly low calorie beer, lots of flavor. I am definitely stocking this beer again and again at home for future drinking. Good beer+kick ass can = enjoyability^2

Yellow pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma is citrus hops and light malt. Light sweet caramel malt with a light medium citrus bitter. Light bodied and a tad fizzy. ok beer

Aroma is kind scary - I call it "wet paper towels", like a mass-market Euro-lager. That is no clue to the taste - nice and fruity hops, easy on the malt sweetness. Pretty tasty. I’d like to try this on tap to compare since it’s in a can, and I swear cans introduces a very, very slight metallic taste.
