COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bristol Brewing Company proudly announce the graduation of Edge City IPA to six packs and confer upon it the name of Bristolís 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.

On tap in CO Springs. Big notro-like head. Hazy yellow pour. Not a lot of aroma to it. A generally dry beer--british style, minerally, dry. Good dose of hop at the end.

Finished second to Yellow Kite as my favorite beer of this sampler pack. Very nice IPA but not at the top of my favorites. Something I really enjoyed was the blending of the bitter/grapefruit/malt/hop concoction. Again, this is a beer I would recommend others give a try.

Bottle @ home. Iím a little surprised that I havenít rated this yet- I guess Iíll have to make a stop by Bristol next time Iím in the Springs. Cloudy, golden orange appearance with a fluffy, cream/tan head. Somewhat grapefruit/orange citrusy, piney hoppy, slightly toasty aroma. Sweet, toasty pale malty, piney, grapefruit hoppy, a touch earthy flavor. Pretty solid IPA.

BucannonXC5 (855) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 15, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2011 Poured from a draft into a pilsner glass at Buffalo Wild Wings in Colorado Springs, Colo. Inch of head. Color was hazy, murky caramel. Lots of lacing. Lots of film on the sides throughout. Smelled of buttery malts. Slightly bitter. Similar to the nose. Tasted of a buttery balance with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Medium body. Average carbonation. Consistent, smooth taste. Just an okay beer overall. I was hoping for better but I guess thatís what I get for hoping.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Draft @ taproom. Bright amber. The nitro has a typical head. Lots of c-hops in the aroma. Quite typical of the style overall. Nitro gives it a soft palate. The malts are not the most exciting around, sort of a crystal malt overload but overall well-made. Of course, better without the nitro pour because the non-nitro, more regularly carbonated palate allows the flavors to develop better.

Oakes (12626) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 4, 2011
Amber. Earthy, woody, slightly mushroomy hop aroma. Moderate bitterness, honeyish sweetness. Woody, floral character. OK, well made but not very exciting.

wchesser (1168) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 28, 2011
On nitro tap at Winter Park Beer Fest í11. Nitro was a really nice touch filling out the palate with great texture. Balanced hops and malt. Not a hop bomb, but a coppery balanced IPA.

p1meatloaf (208) - California, USA - AUG 23, 2011
From brewery in taster. Looks like the pale ale they have. Smells like the pale with a bit of piney hops. Tastes like the pale with an alright hop character. Not too happy with this beer. Overall 4 of 10

arminjewell (6176) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 23, 2011
On nitro pour, very hazy reddish orange with slightly off white head, aroma has notes of pine, orange peel, some grass, and some resinous qualities with a touch of caramel and biscuit. Taste is nice vibrant pine, some slight citrus, biscuity sweet in the middle with a dry bitter finish. The nitrogen actually brought out some of the flavors pretty well.
