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

AndyReynolds (1037) - 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.
