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.

Great packing graphics. Too bad the beer doesn't taste as good as it looks. Had a strange lingering flavor that brought back memories of eating snow. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dr_Fellini (455) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Can to glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a light tan head. Aroma is citrusy, floral, galaxy hops. Flavor is a bit sharp, tangy, tropical citrus. Astringent finish, but still drinkable. Decent pale ale.

Barnoloid (218) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2014
A delicious and well balanced Pale Ale. Can serving. Bright, punchy hops meet a slightly caramel and sweet back end. This is a truly well rounded beer and stays nicely within a sessionable range at 5.2%. Very drinkable.

burg326 (3764) - Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Poured a light golden color with aromas of citrus, pine resin, and some malt. Flavors match the aromas, solid hop presence, that were flavorful and refreshing.

Ibrew2or3 (6990) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Can pours with a somewhat hazy gold body that supports a dirty white head of foam. The aroma offers up some citrus and malts and then there is sort of a resiny edge to it. The taste has some nice hoppiness that’s citrus grapefruit hoppiness rolling into modest resiny pine hops and there’s a nice degree of maltiness off in the background. This is a pretty nice Pale.

FestDecBeet (170) - - AUG 3, 2014
Look: pours a dark orange color. Thick white head. Thin lacing. Smell: tropical fruit. Very sweet. Mango. Pineapple. Taste: bitterness. Not as much tropical fruit as the smell. Slight maltiness in the middle. Feel: very dry. Leaves a heavy film on the mouth. Overall: ok beer. Wish they had done more on the taste addition of the hops to match the smell. First drank: home 8/3/14 Better out of the can than a glass.

can @ John’s Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Clear medium amber with a 3" fluffy white head that lasts the entire drink. bands of lace. Aroma of hops and fruity malt. Taste is solid malt that is enveloped by floral/citrus hops that match nicely. An average strength hoppy brew that will satisfy all but the hopheads. Recommended.
