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.

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.

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.

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 (7217) - 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.

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

Besides for the bad appearance, aroma and body.....it’s not half bad. Pours with virtually no head, leading to its cloudy, deep dirty gold color. Aroma, or lack there of, is a slight fresh hop smell. The body, well there is none. Feels like it was bottled and no carbonation took place. The one good thing, is the taste. A sweet citrus or mango tastes quickly reveals itself and just as quickly leaves. The taste then changes to pine or hop. After you swallow, the slight bitterness makes itself known and the citrus makes another quick showing. My suggestion: Drink this instead of a Bud Light if you want something that you can down and you’re a beer lover.

Beaver (1614) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 7, 2010
22oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a smallish frothy white head that goes to a thin film that laces the glass a little.

The aroma is sweet corny grainy malts with some melon and some metallic hops.

The flavor is sweet vegetal malts with some metallic bitterness that lingers in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with slightly sharp carbonation.

Overall, a decent amount of bitterness for a pale ale. It’s just not very pleasant with lots of off-notes, and not well balanced.

Hazy amber with a small off-white head that fades, but leaves a decent ring of lace. Aroma of caramel, toffee, biscuits and oranges. It tastes like bitter water. Medium-thin, watery, finishing bitter and a little dry. The aroma is mild but ok, but the taste is extremely lacking.

What a mess this is. The description makes this sound amazing but dont be fooled, its bad. Aroma is alcohol, bubblegum, sweet malt, and metal. Taste is much of the same with a predominant flavor that can only be described as bitter spoiled dough. Both alcohol and bitterness shine through in this one.
