4.22/5  rDev +17.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Bomber poured into my large Duvel tulip, Hop Pursuit is pale orange with a big off-white head that leaves nice, scattered lace.

Smell is hoppy, some classic cascade citrus, limes, with a strong earthiness as well. Kicking it old school!

Taste is very hoppy, and quite similar to the nose regarding the cascades supporting a robust backbone of earthy nobles. There's a strong breadiness to the malt, and it's also rather phenolic as well.

Mouthfeel is slick, medium light bodied.

Drinkability is good, a pale ale with big hop flavor without extreme bitterness, and balanced by a nice malty flavor. Clean up the phenols and you'd have one of the best pale ales I've had (although on the east coast this could easily be an IPA). I give Full Sail bonus points not only for their usual value price ($4.20 a bomber in this case, from New Seasons), but also their use of locally derived, old school hops.

3.62/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

pours a clear pale yellow-orange with a small white head, and some lacing.

smell is of grain, citrus, a little bit caramel, and a touch of floral.

taste is refreshing, hops, lemon, a little pine, some toffee, and malt, ends somewhat dry and nicely bitter.
