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.

Not really what I expected, moderately hoppy, a bit sour, almost has lager qualities, a bit darker than the usual PA, average to below average, my first selection from this brewer and I was not really impressed

Gooney (389) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 25, 2010
22 oz bottle from New Seasons - Not a lot in the way of aroma. Good looking beer. A bit more on the golden side than most pale ales with white foam. I liked it better as I finished the bottle. Not as much hoppiness as I’d expect from a beer called Hop Pursuit. Maybe they are still chasing the rest of them.

TheSponge (342) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - MAR 11, 2010
22 oz. bottle purchased at QFC in Mukilteo/Harbour Pointe. Pour a beautiful clear copper color with a white head that dissipates quickly. Flavor: Plenty of hops, but just the right balance. However, I wish it had a fuller body.

Pours amber with a nice white head and some sediment. Aroma is hops and citrus and grains. Has a smooth pale ale flavour with some extra hops. Refreshing and light.

Bomber. citrus, pale, orange, not much head at all. Decent beer but I might not purchase again. If I did it would be because I was feeling cheap. This beer is average but a good value if anything.

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. It’s quite refreshing and, at 6%, quite sessionable.

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.
