Thanks to Viggo for picking this one up in New York!
Pours a clear straw color with a thin, stark white head.
The scent is quite interesting. very perfumey, sweet and floral with some grassiness and a light bit of piney hops behind it.
The taste almost reminds me of pine nuts.There's a very light smokiness to it, too. Not much else. For something with the word "hop" in the name, it's not very hoppy. I was let down after the nice aroma.

3.58/5  rDev -5.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A- pours a clear pale straw color with a small foamy white head that retains nicely, leaving behind some nice lacing

S- crisp wheat with some toasted malt, fruity hops with berry notes, herbal notes with some lemon grass, slightly bready finish

T- citrusy hop flavor up front with an emphasis on lemon, clean toasty malt with slight sweet bready flavors, crisp wheat on the finish with an herbal hop linger

M- medium body with moderate spritzy carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a crop dry finish

O- simply profiled, yet well balanced and drinkable. A worthy option for those hp summer days
