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.

thicksuds (449) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 12, 2011
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

theyshookhands (243) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 8, 2011
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.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 3, 2011
pours dark amber with mid off white head. Malty aroma, bread. Some body, bready and toast. Mild drying finish. Average beer, but not too bad.

bleeng (1668) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - JUL 31, 2011
Bomber. Pours very hazy with a small white head. Nose is lightly fresh hops. Taste is just a bit old, with moderate smooth hop profile and a dash of malt backbone. Flavors fade, although not completely, on the finish. Smooth to drink with moderate carbonation. Not bad but not memorable.

20110730 Bomber from Liquor Stop. Medium amber with small, quick off white head. Aroma is mild citrus, pine, caramel, cake batter. Medium bodied, lingering though mild herbal bitterness. Fairly standard but decent enough PNW pale. Not sure what I paid for it, but hopefully less than six beans.

BillKismet (3863) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 21, 2011
Tan-orange with decent head. Moderate fruity hop and malt balance. Very smooth body. Reserved malt character on the palate with mild bitterness running across. Smooth, but uneventful.

LilBeerDoctor (3772) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2011
Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with a white head and lots of chunks. Aroma of bready malt, floral hops, bitter hops and hop oils. Flavor of crisp, caramel malt, bready malt, spicy hops, and sweet citrus and floral hops. Great hoppy pale ale, would drink this all the time if I could. 7/4/8/4/15 [3.8/5]
