Finally reviewing this one. Bottle is 10 days old.

Pretty golden color with green highlights, and a nice frothy almost white head.

Fresh, hoppy, clean aroma. Citrus, flowers, grass, and pine notes. Quite pretty.

Quite tasty. Citrus- and pine-driven hop flavor, light and clean malt with just enough sweetness for balance, a touch of grassy astringency, and bold bitterness that lingers on the palate for quite a while.

Excellent texture - cushy carbonation, some nice slickness but just light enough to be extremely drinkable (especially with the long, dry, bitter finish).
