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.

Picked this up in the bottle at Siegel's in Addison, TX. Floral hoppy aroma. Nice malty flavor with a good amount of hops on the back of the tongue. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz bottle that might be several months old....it was orange-yellow and smelled of lemons and a bit of grains. It tasted like a hopped up full sail pale ale, I was unimpressed. I almost think full sail beers are just showing up too late in Colorado.... Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 08-17-2010 04:44:02

Poured from a large bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a dark amber color with a good-sized creamy, off-white head with average retention, good cling and average lacing. The aroma featured hops notes of citrus and grain, with a bit of pine, and a modest toffee malt scent too. It tasted somewhat grainy and bitter with the hops, but also had a slight sour effect. It was a very dry beer with good fizz and carbonation, and had a light, thinner mouthfeel.

Draft: Caramel colored pour with a small sandy head. Light citrus and floral aroma, more citrus in the taste. Maltier in the tail and fairly mild bitters.

Excellent APA! The Hop Pursuit pours a murky and cloudy orange color with a modest tan head. The head leaves some beautiful lacing around the inside of the glass! The nose is nicely balanced with plenty of hops, earth, bread, toast and floral spices. The body is very smooth and very drinkable. The flavors are incredibly spicy, with plenty of hops and notes of pepper, earth, lightly toasted bread, caramel and heavy spices. The finish and aftertaste are very dry, spicy and hoppy. This is an incredibly delicious and enjoyable pale ale!

Pours a nice cloudy amber colour with a small white head. Aroma is hoppy with some pine and fruity notes. Taste is fruity with hints of caramel leading to a solid bitter finish. Pretty decent.

Bottle. Poured amber with an off-white head. Aroma of citrus and perfume. The flavor found citrus rind and a malt backing. Light to medium body and a medium bitterness.

Bomber. citrus, pale, orange, not much head at all. Decent beer but I might not purchase again. If I did it would be because I was feeling cheap. This beer is average but a good value if anything.
