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.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - MAY 25, 2010
22 oz bottle - Pours a slightly hazy yellow/orange color with small off white head. Aroma has herbal hops, reminds me of mt. hood or hersbrucker - sort of lager like in the hop profile, with a touch of lemon zest and wheat. Flavor has metallicy, herbal hops and a bit of toasted malts. Finish is mildly bitter. This is just kind of blah. I continue to be very underwhelmed by Full Sail in general.

Golden/orange pour. Slightly hazy. Carbonated to thin lasting white head. Aroma is strong citrus and perfume. Funky malts, medicinal bitterness and strange floral hops. Take off the gym socks of an average super model, liquify that shit, put it in a bottle and you have this.

malrubius (2551) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - NOV 23, 2010
22 ounce bottle from AJís in Phoenix. Extra pale (duh) with lasting head. Mildly astringent soapy perfumy aroma. Mildly fruity pineapple apricot with very dry medium bitter finish. Not much flavor and what there is too roundly fruity for my tastes. Underwhelmed.

Cavie (4302) - Arlington, Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2010
Bottle courtesy Erica, or ericandersnavy. Clear orange color with a white colored head. Aroma is fresh grain with some dry fruit and sharpness. Flavor is dry and bitter with some grain that has lots of hopped bitterness.

thirdeye11 (6043) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 4, 2011
(22oz bomber thanks to ericandersnavy) clear amber with a film of white bubbles. Nose of grapefruit, rye, and rhubarb. Taste of bitter citrus, umami, soft carbonation with an oily, bitter finish thatís not super enjoyable. Smelled better than it tasted.

dyetube (1374) - Hurst, Texas, USA - DEC 20, 2010
This beer pours a light amber with a thin white head. The aromas are bread, light citrus and pine. The mouthfeel is sticky and watery with a light carbonation. Cheers.

Ernesto987 (5557) - Arizona, USA - JUL 3, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2011 Typical pale ale with a crappy malt profile. There some shitty plisner tasting malts in there and bitterness without hop flavor. Whoops.

DYCSoccer17 (3620) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 4, 2010
22 ounce bottle purchased at the Davis Food Co-Op. Aroma has a sweet, fruity, and floral character. I am guessing this is the yeast strain, because I get this character a lot with the Full Sail beers. There is also a mild spiciness present in there, too. Mildly hazy golden-copper body present with a smallish off-yellow head. Starts spritzy, with spicy, peppery, and earthy hop flavors present. There is a fair graininess and cereal-like character in the middle. Finishes with a bit of a lingering metallic bitterness and a chalky texture. Not really digging this one.

Ernest (7283) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 28, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2016 Bottle (2016 batch). Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, grass), lightly yeasty (dough), with light notes of sulfur and egg. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Rather acidic and the nose has some off notes that bring down the one-dimensional hops. Not as terrible as that sounds, but not that good either.
