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

Suttree (4903) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 13, 2013
I have to admit, my primary reason for wanting to try this was the snazzy can. That being said, this was a pretty tasty brew - crisp, snappy hop profile with a subtle, toasty malt. Simple, but tasty. Thanks to theisti for the trade!

Pours slightly hazy golden with a large just off white head. Aroma of citrus and grass. Taste is same with slight bitterness and lingering alchohol. Just missing something. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Crash_the_dog (117) - Fairway, Kansas, USA - APR 24, 2013
Perfect pour out of 16 oz can - deep golden color with a thick, creamy head. Hops are at the forefront if the flavors, but aren't overpowering. There is a nice crispness the the mouth feel, which paired with the relatively low ABV makes this beer very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A-Bright Orange/Amber A-Big Citrus nose T-Malt is quickly subsided with citrus notes that move to bitterness. A nice snap at the end P-medium mouthfeel and carbonation that balances the hops O-Very drinkable Pale Ale with citrus and bitterness stealing the show at the end. I’ll try not to let the design of the can sway my judgement..very cool.

Aroma is a grapefruity citrus scent. Taste is a nice hoppy citrus, orange, grapefruit flavor. The malt is very prevalent also, nice caramel and grainy flavor. Overall a very balanced beer. One of my favorite pale ales.
