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.

bomber bottle compliments of a friend. orangish color with white head not alot of lacing. the taste was basically bitter hops...ok i said to myself where’s the flavoring or accent..nothing but bitter. kind of a waste of time.

On the border of pale and IPA. Nice and crisp with a lingering floral hop bite. This orange colored brew hits the spot on a warm day. A little tiny bit of citrus us back there too.

Bomber pours clear copper with tan head. This playful aroma seems to be hiding behind the couch and refuses to come out. I get light notes of citrus orange peel and lime like hoppiness as well as some spicy hops and a sense of sweet fruity hard candy. The taste has a moderate level of bitter grapefruit and lime like citrus hops and then rolling into spicy and citrus hop flavor. Into the finish the largely citrus hop bitterness and flavor are joined by a thin river of sweet malts.

Terminus (3558) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 1, 2011
bomber-pours bright hazy orange with some chunks with a nice soapy white head. big bubbles. nose is very floral, like you put your head in a flower garden with a mix of differnt notes/aromas. lots of hops but not pungent, very fragrent and lite. flavors are litely piney, light sweetness with a touch of toasted grains. finish is sweet with some lite dryness from the hop bitterness. not a bad pale ale here. definately drinkable but wish i had it a bit fresher. nonetheless glad i got to try it. Full Sail is definately a very solid brewery. I have been drinking their beers now for 10 yrs! :)

ben4321 (5682) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 1, 2011
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 9/1/11

Aroma: The nose is fairly hoppy, grapefruit, pale malts, pine, orange, and citrus
Appearance: It pours a cloudy golden-orange color with a fizzy white head
Flavor: The flavor has a light citrusy sweetness, with a big, bitting, bitter finish to it
Palate: This one is medium bodied with fairly short duration, a fizzy carbonation, and a dry finish
Overall Impression: This is rating numero uno of September!. As for the beer itself, it is quite bitter for the style, dry and bitting, but pretty solid. Another nice offering from Full Sail. The quality level from these guys seems to be generally fairly high.

Bottle. Pours amber orange with an off white head and some chunks at the end of the bottle. Light floral hoppy aroma with very lightly sweet pale malts. The flavor is well balanced, with light floral hoppy notes and bready pale malts. Not bad.

Not really what I expected, moderately hoppy, a bit sour, almost has lager qualities, a bit darker than the usual PA, average to below average, my first selection from this brewer and I was not really impressed

Pours amber with a nice white head and some sediment. Aroma is hops and citrus and grains. Has a smooth pale ale flavour with some extra hops. Refreshing and light.
