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.

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.

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.

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.

Not really what I expected, moderately hoppy, a bit sour, almost has lager qualities, a bit darker than the usual PA, average to below average, my first selection from this brewer and I was not really impressed

Gooney (389) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 25, 2010
22 oz bottle from New Seasons - Not a lot in the way of aroma. Good looking beer. A bit more on the golden side than most pale ales with white foam. I liked it better as I finished the bottle. Not as much hoppiness as Id expect from a beer called Hop Pursuit. Maybe they are still chasing the rest of them.

TheSponge (342) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - MAR 11, 2010
22 oz. bottle purchased at QFC in Mukilteo/Harbour Pointe. Pour a beautiful clear copper color with a white head that dissipates quickly. Flavor: Plenty of hops, but just the right balance. However, I wish it had a fuller body.

theyshookhands (243) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 8, 2011
Pours amber with a nice white head and some sediment. Aroma is hops and citrus and grains. Has a smooth pale ale flavour with some extra hops. Refreshing and light.

Bomber. citrus, pale, orange, not much head at all. Decent beer but I might not purchase again. If I did it would be because I was feeling cheap. This beer is average but a good value if anything.

Picked this up in the bottle at Siegel's in Addison, TX. Floral hoppy aroma. Nice malty flavor with a good amount of hops on the back of the tongue. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
