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.

bhensonb (14632) - 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.

Staff gave me a sample of this and warned me that it has a Bud Light hop profile. Not far from the truth. Golden color. Papery aroma. Light sweet taste.

jcnielsen (3342) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 28, 2016
Bottle. Pours a copper color with white head. Citrus, hop, orange aromas. Citrus, very slight piney, hoppy flavors. Its been awhile since Ive had Full Sail, so I was excited for this one. But not too great of an IPA.

RedSox2004 (1800) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - OCT 22, 2016
Crystal clear golden yellow with a one-finger white head and very nice lace. Aromas of melon, tangerine, ?onion? and a hint of bread. Offputting acidity in the taste, which otherwise includes mild bitterness and a solid bready malt base. Medium body and carbonation, smooth mouthfeel and that acidity lingers in the finish. Really not a notable ipa.

Cybercat (5401) - Georgia, USA - SEP 30, 2016
Pours clear orange-amber with a fairly thick and persistent buff head. Aroma delivers sharp citrus and resiny hop notes plus a mild malty underpinning. Flavor puts hops ahead of citrus and ups the malt a little. Citrus is mainly fresh, tangy orange with a little grapefruit. Firm, smooth mouthfeel presents fair fizz. Go in pursuit of this one.

MattH (829) - California, USA - SEP 8, 2016
Six pack from Daneys mini mart in Monterey, Ca for the great price of $7.22. Pours gold with a white head that recedes quickly. Aroma is onion and pineapple. Flavor is a mix of bitter and slightly spicy hops. I dont get much from this beer. In general I prefer Full Sails lagers over their ales, and this beer is no exception. Im not sure why my impression of this beer does not match other drinkers. Usually it does. I know that IPAs can age quick and sometimes age is a factor with IPA quality, but the best drink by date is 11/21/16 for this brew.

PorterPounder (7687) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2016
Sarasota, Fl - Total Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Slight sparkling essence to the medium orange pour, bubbly white head, light film of lacing. Aroma has a strong spruce presence, a hint of vanilla sweetness. Pleasant flavor, nice bittersweetness with some caramel sweetness, some grapefruit citrus notes, a touch of mango. Decently thick mouthfeel. Very enjoyable.

drjoeng (1057) - SINGAPORE - AUG 21, 2016
6.5%ABV. IPA. Poured out gold. 6SRM. Nose has sweet malt. There is some brief sweet corn aroma on the nose. Mouthfeel is soapy. Palate has toasted malt flavor with malted milkshakes, malted powder like Horlicks or candies like Maltesers, some toasted graham cracker and pie crust. Hops are pine, light resin, sap, hint of spice with light scallion, earthy, with a prolonged bitter finish which is herbaceous but with a pronounced bitterness that borders on resinous. Lingers on back of tongue. Finish is medium-long and with the character as above. The resinous flavor profile becomes more and more prominent the more you sip. A very satisfyingly full hop ride. Goes on Favorites List !

cmacklin (1016) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 5, 2016
355ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a large, frothy, long lasting, white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Sweet, floral aroma of pineapple, grapefruit, peach, caramel malt and pine. Sweet, fruity flavour of grapefruit, orange, mango, peach, pineapple, caramel malt, biscuit and pine with a dry, bitter, slight resin finish. Medium body with an oily texture and average carbonation. A solid IPA.

drjay44 (3563) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JUL 22, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Pours a well retained, tiny bubbled, ivory head, with extensive lacing, over a slightly hazy, amber (SRM 9) body.......nose is tropical fruits, with mango, peach notes, mild citrus, light pine, resin all from the hops, mild malts.....taste is light slightly sweet malts with hints of floral honey, heavy tropical notes, pine resin, light grass, allium, all from the hops, finishing with a moderate hop bitterness, balance to the hops.......mouth feel, light of medium body, no alcohol, high carbonation with light creaminess. The slight allium/grass tones are the only flaw, with the malts just barely balancing out the multiple hop notes. This is a quite typical member of the new style American craft IPAs as such, it is almost trite. BJCP 8/3/13/4/7
