Who's been drinking this

So I'm not normally into light hoppy beers, but this one has a nice mouth feel and the hoops are nice and pine needley and grassy. Comes together well.
Guess I could have guessed this from the label - but the addition of hops brings, well, hops. It's not as crisp as a standard pils because and instead exists in a weird area between something with a great hop flavor and a great crispness, instead having neither.

What I said last time stands.
Grassy fragrance but not too funky. The flavor is a refreshing mix of European and West Coast hops and grain, clean and nicely balanced. The finish starts out a little bitter but gets better over time. Tongue-tingling.
