3.93/5 rDev +3.4%
look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Aroma: Citrus and Pineapple hop aroma, with a white bread and saltine malt aroma in the back. No DMS, I perceive just a tiny bit of diacetyl but that could very easily be the galaxy.
Appearance: Opaque orange to amber color with a large white head and lingering creamy looking carbonation.
Taste: Citrus bitterness is very upfront, orange peel. Some malt backbone (wheat-like) but it is certainly hop-forward. Piney hop flavor becomes more apparent as the beer warms.
Mouthfeel: Medium body and very creamy because of the lingering head. Medium carbonation, perfect for style.
Overall: A good pale ale that has the bitterness of an IPA. If I could change anything I would up the aroma and decrease the upfront bitterness in the flavor just a bit. I like this beer a lot, especially at the price point.

When I first saw the can, I was intrigued right away, how can you not love the 8-bit video game era? I still sware by it. The real question then becomes, is it good beer? That answer is a resounding YES.
The flavor is better than Surly Furious IMO, and a much more reasonably priced Surly Abrasive Ale, yeah it's pretty damn close to that one, which is amazing!
Anyhow, 8-bit's got that classic orangish cloudy look, which is classic IPA, it's hoppy, but not over the top, it's full flavored, and intense, and again without being over bearing... I really really love this beer.
