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.

rougeau13 (2594) - Richmond, Texas, USA - JUL 5, 2011
Hazy amber with a small off-white head that fades, but leaves a decent ring of lace. Aroma of caramel, toffee, biscuits and oranges. It tastes like bitter water. Medium-thin, watery, finishing bitter and a little dry. The aroma is mild but ok, but the taste is extremely lacking.

Ernesto987 (5578) - Arizona, USA - JUL 3, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2011 Typical pale ale with a crappy malt profile. There some shitty plisner tasting malts in there and bitterness without hop flavor. Whoops.

Braudog (6341) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUL 1, 2011
Bottle; golden orange with a skyscraper of a tight white-foamed head. Aroma is yeasty and citric. It drinks with a musty horse blanket essence, and with a dusting of herbal spice. Despite all that, the beer comes across as a bit shallow, light in body. The head won’t quit though. (#4157, 7/1/2011)

Bottle from SL. The pour was light orangey amberish with a nice white head and a good bit of chunkies at the bottom third of the pour. The aroma was biscuits, toffee, citrus, and herbal hops. The flavor followed, oranges not that detectable by me, resinous and herbal hops the keynote. The mouthfeel was moderate for a pale ale, overall flavor moderate to a bit light, but it is an EPA, so I think they hit this dead on. Nice refreshing summer brew, actually.

Poured into a snifter. Thanks to twiggamortis420 for this. 3.5 A: Lightly hazed light orange color. Two and a half fingers of pillowy off-white head with pretty good retention and a good bit of lacing. 3.0 S: The nose is subtle, but it is pleasant enough. Herbal foremost with a good bit of orange and underneath some pithy grapefruit. Malts and yeast combine for a soft breadiness. 2.0 T: Amazingly boring. I’m shocked that a 6% beer named Hop Pursuit could be so bland. The strongest flavor is yeast (I feel like I’m drinking a yeast starter actually). Miles below that there is a very soft bitterness, unaggressive herbalness, and a "stale beer" taste. 3.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Could be creamier. 1.5 D: I’m pissed that this came in a bomber. The second glass is ever worse that the first. It’s like drinking a cuvee of wounded soldiers from the night before. I really wish I drainpoured beer because right now that’s all I can think about. Don’t buy this unless it’s for someone you don’t like. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 06-13-2011 20:59:55

Dorwart (2535) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 26, 2011
Good sized of-white head of fine bubbles. Lots of oranges and citrusy hops, some caramel and soft malts. Color is a hazy brownish orange. Loads of hops in the flavor but not as much citrus as the aroma. Very easy drinking. Decent malt backbone. Very zippy palate with some herbal bitterness. Finishes dry and bitter. An ok brew. Not very complex.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2011
Pours a cloudy golden orange color with a one finger frothy white head that slowly fades into a lasting ring. Spots of soapy lace are left behind. Spicy, floral hop aroma with lots of dry, earthy pine and resinous oil as well as some sweet citrus/tropical notes. Hints of grapefruit, mango, pineapple and orange peel. Grainy biscuit malt backbone. Medium bodied with a blast of dry earthy hops. Resinous with a good amount of bitterness that doesn’t overpower. Floral with hnts of pine countered by sweet fruit notes, especially grapefruit and orange peel. Decent malt backbone balances things out with hints of caramel, toffee, biscuit and slight grainy graham cracker. Dry finish. Full bodied, well balanced, flavorful and easy to drink.

Tap @ PSP. Hazy orange-gold pour with a short white head leaving minimal lace. Fresh hop nose mixed with toasty malt. Medium body with medium-light carbonation. Toast, pine, fruits. Nicely balanced APA, hard to go wrong with Full Sail.

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.
