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 Pursuitís multi-layered hop flavors lead to a crisp, assertive finish. Like the Pacific Northwest, this IPA has hops for days.

Picked this up in the bottle at Siegel's in Addison, TX. Floral hoppy aroma. Nice malty flavor with a good amount of hops on the back of the tongue. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nalu (217) - Washington, USA - APR 17, 2010
22 oz. bomber. Pours a clear gold with a short white head that persists and leaves minimal lace. Malty nose and a cotton-candy and berry sweet, medium body that lasts through. Tart and citrus in the middle and finish with strong hop aromas all through, as if dry-hopped or hop-filtered. Low carbonation, very drinkable - a session beer? A decade ago, this was an American IPA!

regspeir (199) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2010
22 oz bottle (via trade) into a Duvel Tulip Poured a light hazy orange with a huge off-white head (with an aggressive pour) that settled quickly but never completely dissapted. Nice lacing which was present throughout. Nose is breadiness, floral hops with some citrus in the background. Taste is bready and earthy with a nice balance of hops and sweet malts. Feel is on the light side. You certainly notice the carbonation but it works with the lighter mouthfeel. Although the name would suggest something other than an APA, this beer is true to the style and very nicely at that. Itís quite refreshing and, at 6%, quite sessionable.

Rockcrawler (197) - Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA - JUL 3, 2010
22 oz. Pours a deep copper gold with medium head and lacing. Aroma is of grassy floral hops and slight bready malts. Taste is rather balanced with a decently strong bitterness chased by a uplifting sweetness. Finsih is crisp but oily sweetness that is appeasing to me.

picknbrew (196) - Mechanicsville, Virginia, USA - JUN 24, 2010
22 oz. bottle. Amber color with a white head. A little sweetness and citrus in the aroma. Some hops in the flavor. Slight sweetness which finshes dry and bitter. A bit of a tinny taste that lingers some. Not a bad beer.

Chickencoop (188) - California, USA - APR 14, 2010
Picked this up at the Whole Foods/ Los Altos, sweet beer selection. I am biased, I like Full Sail, they were one of the first microís back in the day and I respect them for the staying power. This is quite a drinkable beer, hoppy, but very smooth and malty mellow on the finish. At 6%, this is a poundable all day beer with some strong flavors, good stuff.

blazingspiral (170) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - SEP 18, 2010
22 oz. bottle. Transparent gold color in the glass, large bubbles, thin head. Aggressive hoppy aroma with notes of orange rind and green apple. The flavor is a full-on hops assault. It hits your tongue tingling and provides an explosion of bitterness, followed by a brief moment of malt sweetness, and then a long aftertaste of hops. Grapefruit and lemon are there, but overall the hops seem more grassy. It really tastes "green." Mouthfeel is a bit thin, with carbonation that could be softer. Overall a very crisp and refreshing brew for warm weather that will completely satisfy most hopheads, but not recommended for those who seek balance in their brews.

Not terribly impressive. Some bitter on the taste, not particularly complex malt profile. finish is a let down.

teamsale (137) - Washington, USA - MAY 20, 2016
Bottle, pours a nice clear copper with a minimal white head and light lacing. Smells really good, floral and pineapple, like itís gonna be a sweet one. Surprisingly, the flavor is barely there, as in any flavor. Also, a bit acidic. There is good bitterness in the finish and a so-so aftertaste, but it certainly doesnít make up for the extremely bland taste.

lukeherinckx (134) - mount pleasant, South Carolina, USA - APR 28, 2010
Very nice floral and citrus aroma. Clear, light amber color with a very thin head. The taste is a standard pale ale and is quickly by an intensely bitter, hoppy finish. Not too shabby.
