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.

2010-07-01. Crisp golden orange body, small creamy off-white head. 3+ Modest hops throughout, pleasant bitterness comes in waves of varying intensity. Some citrus notes, muddled touches of orange and lemon, brief hint of apple that I probably imagined. 6+ Modest aroma, mild hops, mild citrus and muted green hop hints. 6+ Average palate. Enjoyable but just too mild overall. On tap at Tap House Grill, Seattle

Light golden pour. The nose is quite fresh. A bit of light pale malt and a kiss of light sweetness. Hops are pretty straightforward. A touch of light grassy/zesty aroma as well as a bit of orange peel as well. Malts are light and lean with a touch of honey lingering sweetness on the finish.
