COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bristol Brewing Company proudly announce the graduation of Edge City IPA to six packs and confer upon it the name of Bristol’s Compass IPA! This is an ale with zip. Our IPA brings together copious amounts of Columbus, Chinook and Cascade hops in a tasty combination that lingers through the finish and beyond. Big hop flavor with malt in a nice supporting role.

12 oz bottle from Tipsy’s into a pint glass. Citrus hops, pine, and husky grains. Moderate hop bitterness, solid IPA overall.

rdixon77 (1372) - Georgia, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Standard but clean ipa. Burnt orange. Floral and piney light nose. Pretty solid biscuit body with bite at the end.

kathouse (1188) - Nevada, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Now this beer is one of the better Bristol beers. 3 "C" hop flavor and aroma are well balanced by the malts. Biscuity with a moderate bitterness. Finish is slight citrus. Could have another of these.

DocJitsu (1153) - Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Pours a clear deep golden color with a perpetual white cap. It has a perfumy, floral, yet clean nose. Apricot and citrus aromas. Full, soft mouthfeel. Citrus come through more in the flavor. Good malt backbone for structure and support. The sweetness balances the citrus and bitterness very well. Best of the Bristol regulars in my opinion.

stoutchap (416) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 12, 2014
A very drinkable IPA. Light nose, decent carbonation. Piney hops throughout but not overpowering.

Tide (2046) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle from Hazel’s beverage world. Amber color, white head. Bitter taste with grapefruit, hops, resin, pine and a bit of tropical fruits. Bitter finish with grapefruit, hops and pine. Good IPA, although a bit one-dimensional.

adamjmryan (2) - - JUN 25, 2014 does not count
Pours amber in color and is slightly cloudy, almost looks like sediment in the beer. Has a good amount of hop aroma, with a little bit of pine flavor, but it’s not overpowering. It’s quite bitter on the palate that lingers after drinking.

TheGB (534) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Pours amber with a thin head. Light aroma of grass and pine. Taste of pine and nuts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
