The aroma sends you right off to spring/summer. Hoppy vibes, less foresty, more flowers- but also some pine, really fresh. In mouth, it greets you with a very nice degree of underlying acidity right away- like a pale ale, camouflaged by the fruityness of the forest. Not so sweet, more sour. Taste lasts for a good while. Very bright, but in looks & tastewise, and pours a pretty big head.
