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 Pursuit’s multi-layered hop flavors lead to a crisp, assertive finish. Like the Pacific Northwest, this IPA has hops for days.

Foxbush (1724) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 6, 2010
This was given to me by Steve Wright. It is very nice pale ale that came in 22 oz bottle. The ale poured a hazy light amber with a frothy head. This full flavored ale has the balanced bittnerness in a pale ale. The hop bitterness is smooth. The medium body ale is above average pale ale.

IndianaRed (3556) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 1, 2010
Bottle Pours a clear light reddish orange with asmall light tan head. Faint sweet fruity malt aroma with classic modest citrus hop component. Lightly bitter flavor with mild maltiness as well. Slightly metallic, and then a moment later, big bready malt flavors, and then a rather sharp IBU bite at the end. A little sweet over all as well. Softly carbonated. Decent.

nearbeer (4716) - 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.
