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.

ben4321 (6064) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 1, 2011
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 9/1/11

Aroma: The nose is fairly hoppy, grapefruit, pale malts, pine, orange, and citrus
Appearance: It pours a cloudy golden-orange color with a fizzy white head
Flavor: The flavor has a light citrusy sweetness, with a big, bitting, bitter finish to it
Palate: This one is medium bodied with fairly short duration, a fizzy carbonation, and a dry finish
Overall Impression: This is rating numero uno of September!. As for the beer itself, it is quite bitter for the style, dry and bitting, but pretty solid. Another nice offering from Full Sail. The quality level from these guys seems to be generally fairly high.

Bottle. Pours amber orange with an off white head and some chunks at the end of the bottle. Light floral hoppy aroma with very lightly sweet pale malts. The flavor is well balanced, with light floral hoppy notes and bready pale malts. Not bad.

bleeng (1669) - Seattle still not near Beersel., Washington, USA - JUL 31, 2011
Bomber. Pours very hazy with a small white head. Nose is lightly fresh hops. Taste is just a bit old, with moderate smooth hop profile and a dash of malt backbone. Flavors fade, although not completely, on the finish. Smooth to drink with moderate carbonation. Not bad but not memorable.

20110730 Bomber from Liquor Stop. Medium amber with small, quick off white head. Aroma is mild citrus, pine, caramel, cake batter. Medium bodied, lingering though mild herbal bitterness. Fairly standard but decent enough PNW pale. Not sure what I paid for it, but hopefully less than six beans.

BillKismet (3949) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 21, 2011
Tan-orange with decent head. Moderate fruity hop and malt balance. Very smooth body. Reserved malt character on the palate with mild bitterness running across. Smooth, but uneventful.
