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.

Bomber. Solid American Pale Ale. Well balanced citrus and caramel flavors. Crisp and hoppy. Light bitterness throughout.

EdInSaltLake (727) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Really nice fruity hop aroma and flavor -- which changes from start to aftertaste. Light malt in background; a little bit of bready flavor, and probably a little caramelized malt. Not super bitter. A really tasty easy-drinker.

Poured from bottle into wet snifter, smells like dirty laundry and looks like piss. However, things improve dramatically from there. Quite a bright, brisk IPA with a pleasant mouthfeel. I would be okay with a sixer of this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: APR 16, 2016 EDIT: I gave this kudos years ago as an APA. I don’t know if they’ve changed their marketing for this beer or if the beer has changed, but it’s not an IPA. It worked much better as an APA. PREVIOUS: wow, really excellent apa. I’m happy to have found this one, though I wish I could find it in a six pack or on draft.

Pours clear golden orange with a medium beige head, very good retention. Aromas of grapefruit, pine resin, succulent floral notes, biscuit, and caramel. Medium-light body, lightly dry, moderate carbonation. Lightly sweet, a hint of grape fruit tang, and a lasting medium bitter finish. Pretty satisfying IPA.

brigg (679) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 21, 2010
(bottle) A hazy orange-copper beer, bubbling with a small creamy head. A bitter hop aroma with floral notes, and sweet, over-ripe fruit. Full bodied. Flavor is very bitter; grassy hops - not bad but a little one dimensional.

Poured from Crowler (with a c) with bro Bryan. Enjoyable. Straight forward , nothing special with bitter flavor throughout. 5.5 bd. 7.5 bry

22 oz bottle tasted blind on 3/11/10. Pours orange with little head and only a little lace. Aroma of grass and funky sweat. Weird off-bitter flavor. Okay mouthfeel and carb. Strange noble hops bitter finish. One of the more disappointing offerings from Full Sail.

TheRealMGD (555) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Tap @ PSP. Hazy orange-gold pour with a short white head leaving minimal lace. Fresh hop nose mixed with toasty malt. Medium body with medium-light carbonation. Toast, pine, fruits. Nicely balanced APA, hard to go wrong with Full Sail.

3.1
TheHulk (486) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 5, 2010
Real balanced pale, smells light and airy like a field in summer. No head, just a bit of lacing, reddish without too much yellow. Very nice even malts and hops, it is perfectly matched with each other. Fades away clean, just a hint of the yeast flavour.
