The beer pours a golden amber orange color with good head retention and lacing. This beer smells terrific, as i get white pepper, dry citrus, a hint of sweet malt and even some light skunky weed. Given the aroma profile, I was just a bit disappointed by the way this beer tasted. While still good, with a light, dry, moderately bitter flavor profile, I just wished the beer could have delivered a bit more flavor. Nevertheless, this is a very easy beer to drink, and is light, crisp, dry, refreshing and lightly bitter on the finish. Mouthfeel is farily light, and the alcohol is completely undetectable.
While I didn't think this beer was anything extraordinary, it's still a very tasty, very easy to enjoy beer from this new to me brewery.

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!
