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 Pursuitís multi-layered hop flavors lead to a crisp, assertive finish. Like the Pacific Northwest, this IPA has hops for days.

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - MAY 10, 2010
22oz bottle. Pours orange with a small head. Nose is biscuit and earthy hops. Taste is pine and earthy hoppiness. Pretty hoppy for not being an IPA. Body is thin/medium. Pretty easy drinking.


3.2
tricksta_p (4520) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2017
Bottle from a supermarket in Oregon. Aroma is grassy hops and soft tropical fruits with grainy malt and a floral/perfumed aspect. Flavour is moderate sweet with a decent bitterness. Body is medium. Decent and drinkable as a beer, flavour is alright, but not a good IPA at all.

Hopzilla43 (1) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - JUN 13, 2017 does not count
The worst IPA Iíve had in years. I live in Seattle where IPAs are plentiful and I have grown accustomed to trying new ones and almost never being disappointed. This is a sad excuse for a beer. Indeed the bud light of IPAs. On a hot day an ice cold bud light would be better.

Andrew196 (1851) - Katy, Texas, USA - MAY 15, 2017
Pours a slightly tinted gold, spritzy body with a non-uniform ivory colored head. Aroma is good enough, some toasty malts, pine, mild citrus. Crisp on the tongue, good feel. Pretty balanced throughout but nothing really distinguishing it.

3.5
luttonm (6150) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 6, 2017
Bottle in Seattle. Thin stingy foam, darker amber gold. I had low expectations but this drinks well. Some minerality to the malt base with a modicum of citrus hop. Fair acidity and rather clean. Bright carbonation. Easy, nice beer.

stevoj (4950) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 15, 2017
Bottle from Albertsons. Nothing stands out here, pretty average all around. Clear, bright golden, small ring of head. Light aroma focuses on hops, light citrus notes. Taste is mildly sweet, some tropical essence as well. Light lingering bitterness.

3.4
scoth (682) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 19, 2017
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.

Travlr (24259) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 6, 2017
Staff gave me a sample of this and warned me that it has a Bud Light hop profile. Not far from the truth. Golden color. Papery aroma. Light sweet taste.

2.7
Syzzer (647) - Oregon, USA - OCT 29, 2016
Poured from Crowler (with a c) with bro Bryan. Enjoyable. Straight forward , nothing special with bitter flavor throughout. 5.5 bd. 7.5 bry

2.9
jcnielsen (3403) - 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. Itís been awhile since Iíve had Full Sail, so I was excited for this one. But not too great of an IPA.

2.7
RedSox2004 (1866) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - OCT 22, 2016
Crystal clear golden yellow with a one-finger white head and very nice lace. Aromas of melon, tangerine, ?onion? and a hint of bread. Offputting acidity in the taste, which otherwise includes mild bitterness and a solid bready malt base. Medium body and carbonation, smooth mouthfeel and that acidity lingers in the finish. Really not a notable ipa.
