COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop Pursuit is the ultimate celebration of Oregon agriculture and Pacific Northwest Hops. Our brewers shoot a wonderfully hoppy surplus of Cascade, Mosaic, Equinox, and Simcoe into the fermenter using our Hop Shooter, dry hopping the beer and enhancing the aroma of pineapple and late hop flavors. Piney and mango notes follow with a mid-palate hint of honey. Two-Row Northwest Pale, Caramel, and Munich malts provide the right amount of malt character. Balanced by a clean, caramel malt body, Hop Pursuitís multi-layered hop flavors lead to a crisp, assertive finish. Like the Pacific Northwest, this IPA has hops for days.

nearbeer (4608) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 30, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2010 Bomber. Hazy, burnt orange with a lasting film of foam. Aromas of evergreen resin, caramel and light orange. Flavor of toasted nut and caramel on the front are quickly overtaken by pine resin and peppery citrus zest. Near-medium body is to the dry side, slightly astringent and smoothly carbonated.

lukeherinckx (134) - mount pleasant, South Carolina, USA - APR 28, 2010
Very nice floral and citrus aroma. Clear, light amber color with a very thin head. The taste is a standard pale ale and is quickly by an intensely bitter, hoppy finish. Not too shabby.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 19, 2010
Bottle: Pours a transparent orange amber with a spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly sweet toasty pale malts with some fresh floral grapefruity hops. Starts with good fullness for the style with pleasant light malty sweetness well balanced with assertive citrusy bittering and flavor hops before a crisp bittersweet finish. Very drinkable and enjoyable.

Nalu (217) - Washington, USA - APR 17, 2010
22 oz. bomber. Pours a clear gold with a short white head that persists and leaves minimal lace. Malty nose and a cotton-candy and berry sweet, medium body that lasts through. Tart and citrus in the middle and finish with strong hop aromas all through, as if dry-hopped or hop-filtered. Low carbonation, very drinkable - a session beer? A decade ago, this was an American IPA!
