Tough to drink this one without thinking of Roscoe P Coltraine from the Dukes of Hazzard who would always be in Hot (Hop) Pursuit of the Duke boys. Golden amber with a medium beige head. Aroma is hoppy enough with floral and citrus hops and some caramel beneath it. Taste is inline with aroma and finishes up moderately bitter. Kew kew kew, flash.

The theme tonight is bottles with green labels apparently. Green meaning the color green, not environmentally conscious. Hop Pursuit is your typical PAC hoppy beer. It has a bit of "skunkiness" to it, and it goes down rough. I’ll take it though, I’d prefer a rugged dirty beer to a hipster IPA any day. PacNWDad (107) - Washington, USA - NOV 30, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2011 Nice yeasty, bready, hoppy aroma. Pours fairly cloudy, reminding me a lot of a hefeweizen. Taste is good, medium amount of hop. Head is pretty uniform. Creamy texture with medium carbonation. Finishes fqirly quickly. Overall, a nice offering. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Bottle:   Translucent Amber, a little fiery, moderate to large frothy white head, nice lacing, little
to no carbonation.   Soft floral hop nose, a little bit of pine or spruce.   Light hop flavor up front,
lingers for a bit but then dimishes.   This too is a fairly light Pale Ale.   Clean, flavorful up front
but fades quickly.   Body and mouthfeel are average.   Pretty good if you want a lighter example Pale
Ale.   Great for summer sessions.   Otherwise, not a hefty/hoppy Pale Ale.

Golden color, sweet malty smell with a slight hop aroma too. Great bitter pale ale with a good malt and hop flavor. Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - NOV 2, 2011
THOUGHTS: At first I didn’t think this was my cup of tea, but it actually grew on me quite quickly. Tons and tons of flavor for a relatively low ABV beer. They weren’t my favorite beer flavors, but they definitely weren’t my least favorite. I guess the best way I can describe this beer is that the flavors run a little wild and are rough around the edges. A little more focus would help this one. A little bit British. It could use a little more balance.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a cloudy, medium to dark, brownish orange that kind of reminded me of rusty water with a large, off-white head that mostly, but slowly diminished and left excellent lacing. The aroma had moderate caramel and toasted malts; moderate to heavy herbal and lemon hops; orange creamsicle; tea; and slight lemon meringue pie. The initial flavor was lightly sweet, moderately acidic and lightly bitter; while the finish was moderately sweet, moderate to heavily acidic and moderate to heavily bitter with a long duration. There was caramel malt, lemon and pine hops, some grapefruit hops, tea, metallic hos, orange hops, toasted malt and herbal hops. The medium to full body was sort of creamy and then a little dry with fairly fizzy carbonation and a metallic and lightly dry finish. TURDFERGUSON (4058) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 26, 2011
Bottle, thanks emacgee. Super cloudy with a tiny sudsy off-white head. Weak hop stale hop aroma, very grainy, paper, some lemon air freshener. Flavor is similar, lots of grain and paper, a little bit of hops and bitterness. Pretty piss poor. MaBeer1972 (2063) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 25, 2011
A VERY cloudy light copper colored brew. Lots and lots of stuff floating around in the glass. Quite ugly. Aroma is nice and lightly hoppy. Flavor is actually quite nice. Slightly bitter. Not too sticky. Citrus notes. Well balanced. emacgee (4676) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - SEP 25, 2011
Pours a slightly hazy amber gold with one finger of offwhite head. Nose shows some diacetyl and peach with wet hay and a light citrusy sweetness. Soft palate. Bready with some hay and grass, light peanut hull and pine. Meh.
