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.

adnielsen (10374) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 18, 2011
Bottle @ home. Dark orange appearance with a vibrant, white head. Slightly spicy, bready, citrus hoppy nose. Pale, slightly caramel malty body with a dull citrus hoppy flavor. Hops are a little dull.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 15, 2011
Bomber from State Line. Deep golden pour with orange tints and thin, crisp carbonation. Hints of pine in the nose, along with sweet apricot. Slightly prickly mouthfeel at first, then settles into a full and fluffy feel. Taste is a bit biscuity with a sweet foundation, balanced just enough by a lightly dry finish. Decent.

glennmastrange (2584) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUN 13, 2011
Bottle. Moderate roasted for the malt, pine and herbs for the hops, light dough and soap for the yeast, with a hint of pepper. Head is small, wispy, slightly off-white with some slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky but clears up, amber/orange with medium sized light colored particles. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a lively carbonation. An easy drinking and pretty tasty American Pale Ale.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUN 7, 2011
Bottle.
Pours a deep, thick cheddar orange with a nose of slightly musty grapefruit and orange. Flavor is flat orange-grapefruit and light pine. Average mouthfeel. Disappointing.

thirdeye11 (5952) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 4, 2011
(22oz bomber thanks to ericandersnavy) clear amber with a film of white bubbles. Nose of grapefruit, rye, and rhubarb. Taste of bitter citrus, umami, soft carbonation with an oily, bitter finish that’s not super enjoyable. Smelled better than it tasted.

Arayaga2 (2057) - portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 2, 2011
Honey yellow with an aroma of honey and lemon, with a light grassy buzz.. Taste is mostly the same, but dialed down and drinkable, with citrus tartness into the finish. $4/22oz

joeneugs (5355) - Livermore, California, USA - MAY 31, 2011
22 oz. bottle. It pours orange with a really nice white head of foam. The aroma is slightly citrusy and grassy with a fruity, malty backbone. The flavor is oranges, herbal, and touches of grapefruit in the finish. The malts are nicely balanced. It lacks a bitter punch in the finish, which is good for some people and not good for others. Overall, this was a laid back version of an APA, but still pretty solid.

kidmartinek (4385) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 29, 2011
A murky orange color. The head is dense, off-white and about 2 inches. Malty sweet aroma. Bland flavor like an English pale ale. Very smooth texture. The finish just a little bitter but long.

Atom (2066) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 26, 2011
Bomber pours hazy orange/copper with a thin off-white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, citrus, floral, and slight pine. Taste is malty with some bready bitterness. Drinkable but nothing special, pretty typical of Full Sail.

keepersj12 (3045) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 22, 2011
Pours a light amber with a small lacing head. The aroma is muted, mostly yeast and bread, some malt. The flavor though is better with a nice malty start followed nicely by the bitter hops. A good deal of citrus in the finish which is very dry, crisp and clean. A very nice summer beer.
