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.

Draft: Caramel colored pour with a small sandy head. Light citrus and floral aroma, more citrus in the taste. Maltier in the tail and fairly mild bitters.

Excellent APA! The Hop Pursuit pours a murky and cloudy orange color with a modest tan head. The head leaves some beautiful lacing around the inside of the glass! The nose is nicely balanced with plenty of hops, earth, bread, toast and floral spices. The body is very smooth and very drinkable. The flavors are incredibly spicy, with plenty of hops and notes of pepper, earth, lightly toasted bread, caramel and heavy spices. The finish and aftertaste are very dry, spicy and hoppy. This is an incredibly delicious and enjoyable pale ale!

Pours a nice cloudy amber colour with a small white head. Aroma is hoppy with some pine and fruity notes. Taste is fruity with hints of caramel leading to a solid bitter finish. Pretty decent.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Bottle. Poured amber with an off-white head. Aroma of citrus and perfume. The flavor found citrus rind and a malt backing. Light to medium body and a medium bitterness.

Bomber. citrus, pale, orange, not much head at all. Decent beer but I might not purchase again. If I did it would be because I was feeling cheap. This beer is average but a good value if anything.

Tough to drink this one without thinking of Roscoe P Coltraine from the Dukes of Hazzard who would always be in Hot (Hop) Pursuit of the Duke boys. Golden amber with a medium beige head. Aroma is hoppy enough with floral and citrus hops and some caramel beneath it. Taste is inline with aroma and finishes up moderately bitter. Kew kew kew, flash.

The theme tonight is bottles with green labels apparently. Green meaning the color green, not environmentally conscious. Hop Pursuit is your typical PAC hoppy beer. It has a bit of "skunkiness" to it, and it goes down rough. I’ll take it though, I’d prefer a rugged dirty beer to a hipster IPA any day.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2011 Nice yeasty, bready, hoppy aroma. Pours fairly cloudy, reminding me a lot of a hefeweizen. Taste is good, medium amount of hop. Head is pretty uniform. Creamy texture with medium carbonation. Finishes fqirly quickly. Overall, a nice offering.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Bottle:   Translucent Amber, a little fiery, moderate to large frothy white head, nice lacing, little to no carbonation.   Soft floral hop nose, a little bit of pine or spruce.   Light hop flavor up front, lingers for a bit but then dimishes.   This too is a fairly light Pale Ale.   Clean, flavorful up front but fades quickly.   Body and mouthfeel are average.   Pretty good if you want a lighter example Pale Ale.   Great for summer sessions.   Otherwise, not a hefty/hoppy Pale Ale.
