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.

jercraigs (9681) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2010
2010-07-01. Crisp golden orange body, small creamy off-white head. 3+ Modest hops throughout, pleasant bitterness comes in waves of varying intensity. Some citrus notes, muddled touches of orange and lemon, brief hint of apple that I probably imagined. 6+ Modest aroma, mild hops, mild citrus and muted green hop hints. 6+ Average palate. Enjoyable but just too mild overall. On tap at Tap House Grill, Seattle

"citrus and a touch of odd spice and breadiness. alittle thin and underwhelming, even compared to a couple other underwhelming brews

Bomber. Pours a cloudy gold copper with a small frothy off white head that leaves spotty lacing. The aroma is floral hops grapefruit and pine. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet hop and a bit watery with citrus in the finish. A decent Pale Ale from Full Sail.

JoeMcPhee (9268) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2010
Light golden pour. The nose is quite fresh. A bit of light pale malt and a kiss of light sweetness. Hops are pretty straightforward. A touch of light grassy/zesty aroma as well as a bit of orange peel as well. Malts are light and lean with a touch of honey… lingering sweetness on the finish.

Sampled at the SpringBeerFest in Portland. Hazy bright orange. Aromas of orange citrus and sweet caramel. Flavours of tangerine, caramel. Palate is lighter, with a creamy mouthfeel and moderate bitterness. Easy drinking, really nice.

3fourths (9064) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 11, 2010
bottle, filtered. clear medium copper color. first impression of the nose is gelatin, lime, cream, mint, saccharin and floral soap. WTH? pale/weak body, flabby up front, bitter but transparent and dull on the back. the hops are resinous and pine-like but are dull and peaked. the nose grows from strange to strongly offensive in only a few minutes.
