Full Sail Releases Brewmaster Reserve Hop Pursuit
Hood River, Or – As the sun rises earlier and stays out longer, the Full Sail crew celebrates the coming of spring and the sprouting of this year’s hop crop with a new beer in their Brewmaster Reserve line-up. Hop Pursuit is a crisp, orange blonde extra pale ale with a medium malt body that’s chased by a ton of hop flavor and zing of bitterness.
It was brewed with the less aggressive, old school craft brewing hops- Cascade, Willamette, and Mt. Hood- to celebrate more of the hop flavor and less of the hop bitterness. These give the beer a nice and fresh citrus herbal character without a lot of intensity; instead it has a softly flavorful character with touches of orange and lemon.
The beer was dry hopped for two weeks to amplify these delicate hop flavors. It will be available in specialty beer stores and pubs throughout the Pacific Northwest from March to June in 22oz bottles and draft. ABV 6% IBUs: 55
The next beer in Full Sail’s Brewmaster Reserve line up will be Spotless IPA to be released in June. For a full list of Full Sail’s Brewmaster Reserve Beers please visit http://www.fullsailbrewing.com/FullSailBrewmasterCalendar.pdf
