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

Beer pours cloudy golden color with an egg white head that is retained. Aroma is very hoppy with lots of citrus. Taste is bitter. This is a great APA. Bordering on an IPAD.

M82 (260) - Kansas, USA - JUL 10, 2014
A hazed amber body sits beneath a fading two inch fluffy smooth head leaving dimensional peninsulas of lace reaching beyond a thick ring with a frothy island

A somewhat pungent balance of tropical, citrus, and earthy grass characteristics with a subtle green melon influence and a kiss of malty sweetness on a brightly carbonated light plus body finishing with a drying, very lean residual shifting the focus a bit more towards the melon component

Refreshing and bright with the classic pale ale earthiness, light plus intensity, decent complexity for the style, well integrated flavor components

16oz can code drink by 11/06/14

Can out at lake Quivera; poured hazy orange, some off white head in the glass. Nose of herbal, melon hops, fair amount of caramel malts. Pacific NW hop profile with earthy, herbal hops and some caramel malt balance. Fairly light bodied and not as potent as one would expect after reading the ingredient profile. Day drinking beer ok ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DrSilverworm (5899) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2014
16oz can from Lukas Liquors in Missouri. Best by 10/11/14. Shared with friends during Catan. Hazy golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves good thicker bits of lace. Toasty light peppery malt nose. Some light tropical light citrus hop, but less than expected. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Light slick. More metallic flavor than expected and less hop, a little disappointing in that regard but still cool overall.
