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

Poured from a tallboys can received from unclemike. Pours a lighter copper with a white troth of foam. The aroma is light and slightly fruity. Bitterness is buried behind a hefty sweetness. Its almost indicative of an English Pale Ale. Its an interesting beer.

16 oz can. BB 08/18/16. Thanks Jere!
Cloudy golden color with a small white head. Sweetish fruity hops, moderate bitterness and some malt in the aroma. Quite fresh even if its 6 months past BB date. The flavor is pungent hops, candies, harsh bitterness and dryish malt.

Lots of hop flavor. Average aroma. Hop mix is excellent. Their $1.99 per 12 ounce can is competitive in MI.

Pours hazy golden color with a small head. Aroma is hoppy and fruity with mandarin and orange, some piney notes and citrus. Flavor is quite bitter, citric fruity, grapefruits, malty notes and gooseberries. Doesnt feel as old as it is, decent.

From the can to a pint glass. Decent American pale ale. Nice aroma, decent full-bodied palate. Mildly hoppy, mildly bitter. Good stuff!

Can to glass. Pours a clear copper-gold with massive white head and plenty of patterns down. Melon aroma is assertive and solid. Flavor is more herbal.

ContemplateBeer (2050) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 27, 2016
Pint can from Keg Liquors; drink by date of 1/30/17. Aroma: Moderate citrus with melon and punch bowl-like fruit in near balance; a lesser caramel malt backing stays predictably subtle. Appearance: Somewhat hazy orange body with healthy carbonation holding up a sticky off-white head that settles into a skin. Flavor: Hops take a floral turn at the start, letting in more caramel than expected; melon/citrus like hop notes come up more towards the finish, which is lightly bitter. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Lots of good things about this APA; I just wish that the fruitiness of the nose couldve translated to the flavor more.

rougeau13 (2721) - Richmond, Texas, USA - NOV 19, 2016
Can. Very slightly hazy pale amber with a big frothy white head with a fair amount of webby lacing. Aroma of citrus peel, grain, and sweetbreads. Tastes grainy and slightly fruity and quite bitter. Medium bodied and very crisp.

A lot of thistle in aroma and flavor. Golden with a meringue head, in appearance that is. I want to love and hate this beer at the same time. The flavors are heavy in fruity esters. The esters are so thick you could love or hate it. Toys. Nostalgia.
