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.

nice colour very light amber. Almost no head. Aroma is great, bold fresh and very hopy. Flavour is unusual bitter and hopy with a distinct sour note. Very dry mouth feel. Lots of citrus notes. Nice pale ale.

Aroma is funky, hoppy, slightly sour and citrus. Taste is oddly cheesy, piny, citrus hops, biscuits, and wateryness. Finish is slightly bitter, a touch sour, and piny. Overall, kind of thin, but very drinkable. Flavors are there, but watery, and slightly stale Eh.

Six pack from Daney’s 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 don’t get much from this beer. In general I prefer Full Sail’s lagers over their ales, and this beer is no exception. I’m 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.

Bottle. A very fine pale ale. Wildly good for its category. Cascade spiciness jumps into the nose, very subdued malt backbone showcases various hop flavors - earth, spice, pine, a bit of refreshing citrus fruit. Finishes with clean light lingering hop bitterness.

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

BrotherGrendel (787) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 27, 2010
Bottle. Cloudy light orange hue with a HUGE craggy foamy white head. Nose is citrus hops and pale malt. Flavor is crisp breadcrumbs up front with light citrus and grassy hop flavors that persist into the dry, bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation, slick texture. A west coast pale by all standards, very much in the genre of Sierra Nevada, easy drinking at 6% but full of flavor.

22 oz bottle - Pours a slightly hazy yellow/orange color with small off white head. Aroma has herbal hops, reminds me of mt. hood or hersbrucker - sort of lager like in the hop profile, with a touch of lemon zest and wheat. Flavor has metallicy, herbal hops and a bit of toasted malts. Finish is mildly bitter. This is just kind of blah. I continue to be very underwhelmed by Full Sail in general.

EdInSaltLake (748) - 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.

2.7

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