Half Full Pursuit IPA

Posted: March 14, 2015 in American IPA, Half Full Brewery, Reviews

I finally completed my blog project of updating every post with the corresponding Untappd rating. Now that it’s finally done, I can tackle some blog posts from before the move. Here we go…

ABV: 7%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “IN PURSUIT OF PASSION. OF A BRIGHT IDEA THAT MATTERS SO MUCH IT MOVES YOU TO ACT. OUR PURSUIT IS A NONSTOP ADVENTURE: DITCHED STABLE JOBS TO DRAFT A PLAN, GATHERED A CREW TO CONVERT AN OLD FACTORY, BUILT AND BECAME HALF FULL. AND WE’VE ONLY JUST BEGUN. HALF FULL PURSUIT IPA, THE PERFECT INSPIRATIONAL PAIRING FOR WHENEVER YOU FIND YOURSELF…IN PURSUIT OF PASSION.”

Random: Their descriptions being in all caps irritate the crap out of me.

This beer poured with a two finger, slightly off white head that was slow to dissipate. It left a moderate amount of lacing on the glass. The body was a cloudy, warm brown color with moderate carbonation. The nose had a lot of pine and a weird medicinal scent that I couldn’t exactly place. It was almost like green NyQuil. The taste was also piney, but incredibly medicinal. It also had a minty note, which just didn’t work for me. It also was only mildly bitter, which made it very odd for the style. The body was on the thicker side with moderate carbonation. It had a long, medicinal finish. For $1.99 a can, this breaks down to $.17 per ounce, which is relatively cheap, but since IPAs are a dime a dozen out there, this wasn’t worth it. I wouldn’t have this again, even if it were handed to me. The medicinal taste was too much to handle.

Untappd Rating: 2.5/5.0
