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.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - APR 11, 2010
Serving: 22 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. Pours a clear amber color with a frothy off-white head. The nose is slightly fruity with grassy hops and a bit of bread. The taste is hop forward with notes of grass and pine. Some bread and cracker notes come from the malt side. A medium mouthfeel leads to a medium to long, bitter finish. Overall very sessionable and rather tasty. Bordering on an IPA in my mind. Definitely worth taking a drink of.

obguthr (5918) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 9, 2010
UPDATED: APR 17, 2010 Orange peel, weak. Clear golden, medium head. Dry malt flavor, distinctly barley at midpalate, with a lemon zest finish. Well assembled, with nice transitions. Nothing exotic, and lacking oomphf, but it has its charms. Quaint.

bhensonb (14482) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 8, 2010
Bottle from the Co-Op in Davis, CA. Pours hazy amber with an ok off-white head. Aromas of fruit, floral and a touch of something citrus/spicey. Medium plus body with creamy carbonation. Very nice feel. Flavor is not harsh bitter, but more floral over a decent amount of caramel. Smooth enough to be English - almost. Some bitter does come forth, but the hop is more lush than bitter. Very nice beer.

DYCSoccer17 (3663) - 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.

BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - APR 2, 2010
22oz Bottle Gravity Beer Market Olympia, WA
Aroma Nice hops aroma lots of fruit and floral in the nose.
Appearance Dark Golden in color, Clear with a thin head.
Flavor Nice malt flavoring with a good addition of hops. This felt bigger than a regular pale.
Palate Dry finish with a Nice Mouthfeel.
Overall Very easy drinking ale. Not sure on the style more like a weak amber or a strong Pale.

Reid (2393) - Salem, Oregon, USA - APR 1, 2010
22 oz bomber bought at S.Salem Freddys. Pretty pedestrian in appearance lighter amber with a small dirty white head. Good lace. Aroma is pleasant and pretty balanced considering the name! Hops balanced out by buiscuity malt. The taste is also balanced well buiscuity malts and lemon zesty hopping then near the end the hops spring into action with a massive fruity spicy aspect that makes one want another gulp. very nice palate..so very very drinkable. This is overall a very nice summery pale ale. Gulpable rather than spippable!

riversideAK (6229) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 31, 2010
Nose is crackery and bready with a good deal of floral and citrus hop notes. Nice fresh and crisp hoppy aroma. Pours light golden with a soapy head that lasts. The flavor is more crackery and bready malts with floral and citrus hops, a bitey bitterness, very sharp and lingering fruity and floral bitterness. Solid lingering bite and some resin notes as well. High drinkability level.

raphael (1193) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 28, 2010
Such a bright, springy label. not a strong aroma but a good balance of resiny hops, caramel and water. nice clear amber but minimal head. definite citrus edge to this, with some grapefruit rind damping out what malt might want to express itself

EricE (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 27, 2010
Part of a blind IPA tasting with brainlair and ryan. By far the worst of the bunch. My notes: Ap. 3/5 Clear orange pour. Thin white head. Ar. 6/10 Weak bitter hop. Some pine Fl. 6/10 Definitely the weakest so far. Some bitterness. A bit of skunk and maybe even a bit of sourness (Not really strong, but noticeable). Maltiest so far. Eh. Pal. 3/5 Ov. 13/20
