may need to update this later, but so far this beer is living up to expectations, with lots of clean grassy hop aroma, a buttload of crispness, and the right amount of grassy/citrusy/herbal flavor and bitterness on the back end. the extremely pale yellow color might put some off, but that would be a shame. too bad they did not release this earlier in the summer (at least i didn't notice until september), for it would make an ideal warm afternoon quencher.

Not a fan of the style, but surprisingly enjoyable. Love the hop character.
