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.

djd07 (13689) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Bomber. Pours a cloudy gold copper with a small frothy off white head that leaves spotty lacing. The aroma is floral hops grapefruit and pine. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet hop and a bit watery with citrus in the finish. A decent Pale Ale from Full Sail.

jcnielsen (3399) - 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.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - MAY 25, 2010
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.

waolsen (1376) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - AUG 28, 2010
Golden/orange pour. Slightly hazy. Carbonated to thin lasting white head. Aroma is strong citrus and perfume. Funky malts, medicinal bitterness and strange floral hops. Take off the gym socks of an average super model, liquify that shit, put it in a bottle and you have this.

malrubius (2796) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - NOV 23, 2010
22 ounce bottle from AJs in Phoenix. Extra pale (duh) with lasting head. Mildly astringent soapy perfumy aroma. Mildly fruity pineapple apricot with very dry medium bitter finish. Not much flavor and what there is too roundly fruity for my tastes. Underwhelmed.

Cavie (4586) - Arlington, Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2010
Bottle courtesy Erica, or ericandersnavy. Clear orange color with a white colored head. Aroma is fresh grain with some dry fruit and sharpness. Flavor is dry and bitter with some grain that has lots of hopped bitterness.

dmac (6037) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 14, 2011
22 oz bomber from EZ. Poured a slightly muddy orange/amber body under an average to smaller off white foamy head. Aroma of lemons, wet bread, earth, lemon zest, crusts. Palate was meh..thinner mouthfeel with stingy carbonation and an acidic finish. Flavor of lemons and mud. Overall a lemony earthy beer that is under average at best.

thirdeye11 (6152) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 4, 2011
(22oz bomber thanks to ericandersnavy) clear amber with a film of white bubbles. Nose of grapefruit, rye, and rhubarb. Taste of bitter citrus, umami, soft carbonation with an oily, bitter finish thats not super enjoyable. Smelled better than it tasted.

thicksuds (449) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 12, 2011
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

teamsale (268) - Washington, USA - MAY 20, 2016
Bottle, pours a nice clear copper with a minimal white head and light lacing. Smells really good, floral and pineapple, like its gonna be a sweet one. Surprisingly, the flavor is barely there, as in any flavor. Also, a bit acidic. There is good bitterness in the finish and a so-so aftertaste, but it certainly doesnt make up for the extremely bland taste.
