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

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.

AndyReynolds (1011) - Dayton, Kentucky, USA - MAR 12, 2015
Can at Forza Brick Pizza. The aroma is a nice hop with grass and pine notes. Some floral and citrus come out, especially grapefruit once it hits the palate. The taste, however, is light. There is nothing wrong with that, but it just didn’t meet my expectation. With that said, good session beer. Refreshing.

Bif (1599) - 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 (5949) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Draft. It has nice solid head protecting it, but damnit I’m 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 (199) - 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 (373) - Wilmington, 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.
