Lightly hazed rich gold color with about one finger of the most dense white head I have seen. The modest sized head lasts all the way to the bottom laeving swathes of micro bubble lacing.
Aroma is really big. Pine oil resin with some rich herbal notes. Malts are very much in the background. Taste is bitter pine oil grapefruit rind, some leather and just a touch of pale malt. Seems like the hop oils just coat the tongue which makes the bitter finish last forever. Mouthfeel is thin and well carbonated.
Overall if this was in the session IPA category it might rate 95 to 100. As an APA it needs more malts. Very much enjoyed this beer. Well done Bale Breaker!

12oz can picked up from Brewforia Meridian for $2.... Poured into my tall goblet and it produces 1" of white foam that produces decent white lacing.. the brew is fairly clear golden.

Good citrus hops with some background tropical fruity notes... lite pale maltiness that helps bloom the hops.

Flavor mirrors the nose... but seems weak on the palate overall... A light body makes for a IMO a bit of a watery profile... Still very drinkable... sessionable even.

My big bitch would be this seems like an old can.... I picked it up off of a shelf that was obviously room temperature... just seems a bit stale/old.

I bet this would be great very fresh... and it is something that many breweries don't do... Low ABV/sessionable pale ales are great... this one just didn't seem "fresh".

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a light to medium golden amber with a one finger white head with good retention and lacing. Pleasant aroma of citrus and mild piney hops, tropical fruit, mild bready malt. Flavor is light biscuit malt with a hint of toastiness, slightly floral citrus hops, lemon and grapefruit rind citrus juice. Finishes with a long lingering grapefruit rind and hop bitterness. Medium bodied with a surprising light creaminess; great body for a low ABV pale ale. Great NW hopped pale ale with a very long flavorful aftertaste and lingering hops. It is hoppy enough to cause regret that it is not higher ABV and more intense, but as a pale ale, it shines.
