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.

Bottle from the Co-Op in Davis, CA. Pours hazy amber with an ok off-white head. Aromas of fruit, floral and a touch of something citrus/spicey. Medium plus body with creamy carbonation. Very nice feel. Flavor is not harsh bitter, but more floral over a decent amount of caramel. Smooth enough to be English - almost. Some bitter does come forth, but the hop is more lush than bitter. Very nice beer.
