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

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - JUN 21, 2010
Herbal aroma, some basil. Caramel colored, clear, small white head. Lemongrass note that comes across soapy. Dusty, mild tobacco, apricot, leaves me indifferent.

Pours a slightly hazed orange caramel color with 2 finters of off white head. Aroma is hops, grass, malt. Flavor is grassy hops, a decent dose of malt with a bitter grassy crisp finish. Very enjoyable.

asedzie (819) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 3, 2010
Bottle. A very fine pale ale. Wildly good for its category. Cascade spiciness jumps into the nose, very subdued malt backbone showcases various hop flavors - earth, spice, pine, a bit of refreshing citrus fruit. Finishes with clean light lingering hop bitterness.

jgb9348 (6101) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 29, 2010
Nice slightly hazy copper coloured orangish bodied with a nice thinnish tan head. Aroma of fresh hops, malt, cardboard, some mild fruits and a light bit of alcohol. Light to Medium-bodied; Nice mild maltiness with some hops, rather subdued, with some light sweetness and a bit of hop dryness, hardly any bitterness though. Aftertaste shows a fairly minimal flavour - with hops the strongest and a bit of malt. Overall, a pretty mild beer - even in this style. Worth trying if you like lighter APAs, but aside from a normal drinking beer, this isnt too pleasing. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 25-May-2010, sampled on the Eastern Shore of Virginia on 29-May-2010.

LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - MAY 26, 2010
22 oz. bottle

Appearance: Pours a hazy translucent amber orange with a big white sudsy head.

Aroma: Perfumy orange and grapefruit zest and oil.

Taste: Super bitter resinous hops, sturdy dry pale malt, spicy metallic yeast. Finishes with a slight twang and big abrasive bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Thin, fizzy, and juicy.

Overall: Not much different from Full Sails other special IPAs. Its bitter, uses their usual yeast strain, and they stay away from the caramel malts, which I respect. Definitely hoppy.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 26, 2010
From stefanje via trade. Poured clear and copper with average lacing. There was citrus, pine and iced tea in the aroma. The flavor was a straightforward blast of citrus and pine hops that gave way to some staleness on the backside. Thin body and very drinkable.
