Default First time dry hopping with whole hops .. The beer looks green ?

I am currently dry hopping a pale with an ounce of whole leaf hops ... after 4 days now I decided to take a hydo sample (just to taste it mainly) ... the beer really is tasting great but it looks a greenish color from the hops ... a real different color than it was before the hops ... will the color change back at some point or will I have to save this batch for next st patty's day ???

I've dry hopped with whole hops a couple of times and I don't recall my beer ever turning green...

That said, even if you somehow leeched some chlorophyll out of the hops, I suspect it will eventually change to a brown color.
