Above average "session IPA" style beer but has some malt flavor too not just hops with water like backbone. Maybe this is a new style "session pale ale"? Not bad at all.

From draft at DB's restaurant/taproom. Called "DB Pale Ale" which is their Galaxy hop pale ale. Nose is hallmark Galaxy: super tropical fruits, mango, pineapple, guava. Taste is much the same. Somewhat dry finish. Medium carb. Overall, excellent. Love me some Galaxy hopped PAs. This is as good as many others I have tried.

Wonderful offering from Dust Bowl. The hops show so well on this one. Nose of sliced grapefruit, honey, hibiscus, malt, and fresh cut grass. Very well balanced, the malt backbone really enhances the hop profile. Well done, Dustbowl! I could drink this stuff all night.

The pour is hazy golden color with a white head. Citrus and mild pineapple on the nose. A touch of bready malt, melon, and floral hops. A fairly simple nose. The flavor is enjoyable. Bread and biscuit malt, grapeftuit, pineapple, and floral hops. A little bit of tea, maybe some pine bitterness on the finish.

On tap at Beer Revolution. Pours a clear light golden amber with a small white head that has decent retention and leaves a good amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma is mango, buttered popcorn, caramel, and some apricot. The initial taste is mango, then some buttered popcorn, caramel, and some apple. The finish has a light bitterness and leaves a nasty buttered popcorn aftertaste. Medium body. Medium carbonation. This could have been a decent beer if it wasn't for the diacetyl.
