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.

22 oz bottle. Wow, a very good beer here. Pours a crystal clear golden color with a foamy white head. Aroma is hops, touches of malts. Flavor is a nice, clean citrus hop one, with slight notes of malts, but for the most part, a good, decent, extremely well hopped pale ale.

AmEricanbrew (6626) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JUN 14, 2010

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Bottle:   Translucent Amber, a little fiery, moderate to large frothy white head, nice lacing, little to no carbonation.   Soft floral hop nose, a little bit of pine or spruce.   Light hop flavor up front, lingers for a bit but then dimishes.   This too is a fairly light Pale Ale.   Clean, flavorful up front but fades quickly.   Body and mouthfeel are average.   Pretty good if you want a lighter example Pale Ale.   Great for summer sessions.   Otherwise, not a hefty/hoppy Pale Ale.

Strykzone (6256) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Sent from Hayduke and it was enjoyed via Facebook chat. A cloudy copper color with a very small soapy head that has a short life. The aroma seemed funky and a bit odd while cold. That definitely improved with warmer temperatures. Cascade hops are noted in both aroma and flavor. Citrus fruit, sourness that is unripe fruit. A hint of pepper spice. For the style this is down the middle. A rocky beginning but a solid finish. It is a nicely crafted beer.

Braudog (6218) - 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)

Cask at Pilsner Room in Portland. Mild hops that are not too powerful or impressive for taste. Medium body. Decent carbonation. Drinkable.

Thanks to Rosebud Butternuts for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is decent, but not as good as I expected. I get some grain and grassy hop notes but not too much else. The flavor is a little bit better. I get some orange and grass notes from the hops, as well as some wheat, biscuit and grain notes from the malt. Low bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not a bad beer, but nothing too special. Thanks for sharing Eric.
