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.

Bottle. Pours orange with a slightly off white head. Flowery and earthy hops, a little bit of harsh astringency, and sweet toffee malts. A little rough around the edges.

Aroma is hoppy with some maltiness. Pours a cloudy golden color with decent off white head. Taste is hoppy but not over powering. Finishes dry and crisp with a hint of bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Good IPA all around with piney aromas, nice pour, standout bittering backbone with hints of honey; more full-bodied than expected on the mouth

Pint at the brewery. I beg to differ on the big hop flavor with malt in a supporting role claim. I can tell this is an IPA because the hops do impart a grassy bitterness, but never really come to life. The flavor has notes of creamed corn and chalk, subtracting from a satisfying hop experience. Finish is tame.

Bottle pour. Set off by particlulate in the beer! About an 8 month bottle doing a little extra fermentation in the bottle. Looked at the rest of the six pack I got, all had sediment in the bottom. Once I got past the sediment, the aroma was honey and hops, flavor was pleasant with pine and hops, finish was clean. Just watch out for sediment and pour the last half inch out if you find it.

Sampled on 10/7/2012. This India Pale Ale pours a medium orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, citrusy and grapefruity. A medium bodied India Pale Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are citrusy and grapefruity and a touch piney. Decent carbonation. A fairly bitter IPA with a a whole lot of lingering hop bitterness. Nice IPA. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is mostly bitter.

UncleKorm (815) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 11, 2012
A pleasant citrus - grapefruit aroma with a frothy mostly diminishing head, clear, sparkling amber hue. I enjoy the taste of this IPA, it does have a bite and the finish is long in duration.

Nitro pour at Freshcraft. Orange pour with a thick creamy white head. Light citrus hop nose - not as hoppy as most IPAs. Med, creamy (nitro) body with well balanced citrus hops and caramel malts. Citrus bitter finish that sticks around a bit.

csaso (1370) - Missouri, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Tap - average size foamy head, medium copper color, nice big grapefruit hop aroma and flavor with a pretty good malt back bone - good IPA

So many good IPAs put there maybe I'm being a little stingy rating. No complaints but I may spend my beer dollar in pursuit of better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
