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.

Bif (1888) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 11, 2015
Can. Pours a golden color with a decent head and some lacing. Aroma on pine, fruit sweetness and bit of grass. Taste of grapefruit, malt fruity sweetness and grain. Nice bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body, crisp and refreshing with a subtle fruity character. Enjoyable Pale Ale that goes down easy.

Braudog (6172) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Draft. It has nice solid head protecting it, but damnit Iím drinking it. Nice agricultural aroma of pine and a hint of sweet fruit. Fairly mellow drinker, some mild acidity, but otherwise an easy downer. (#5900, 12/21/2014)

Obfuscate (433) - Minneapolis, - DEC 9, 2014
Really a great beer. Good hops on the nose, pineapple, tropical fruits, super clean. Very session able, clean, refreshing without being light or dull on the flavor. Light bitterness and dry aftertaste that makes you ready for more.

Thechasm442 (611) - Manhattan, Illinois, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Pint can to a tulip. Pours a hazy yellow apricot with a thick white head that leaves an assload of lacing. Aroma is floral hops. Grass, light citrus and pine, and bread are also there. Taste is juicy hops and pine up front. They are met by a caramel and bready backbone that mixes nicely. It is juicy up front and leaves a somewhat dry and decently quenching taste. Not a bad pale ale.

Julie say it is a really gross beer. It is very hoppy and taste like air freshener Julie gives it a 1.0

sawbuck (588) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Faint aroma of citurs and some notes of fresh hops. Dark yellow in color, clear, with a huge intense, off-white fluffy head. Sweet malt, infused with bitterness right out of the gate. Interseting, since itís a pale ale, bitterness slightly up front but mellow and enjoyable. Citrus flavor is lively and fresh. Finishes with a nice balnce of sweet and bitter. Bitterness lingers some. Mouthfeel is fuller than for a normal pale...which I like. Nice.

Bartzilla (597) - La Mesa, California, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Tall boy can with awesome art work. I liked this one a lot. Smelled fresh, tasted bright and hoppy. Seemed to be on the IPA side in flavor, but keeps everything in check. Clean finish. Digging this brewery. Good stuff.

KyotoLefty (8730) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 1, 2014
Can. Nose of oranges, earth, tropical fruits, biscuits. Cloudy, glowing orange color. Rather bitter flavor, earthy and a bit harsh, nice biscuity malts, ripe tropical fruits, strong bitterness.
