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.

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

kathouse (1107) - 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 (1049) - 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 (1882) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle from Hazelís 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 itís not overpowering. Itís quite bitter on the palate that lingers after drinking.

TheGB (515) - 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

AFMcKone (35) - Colorado, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Tap pour at O'Malleys in Palmer Lake, CO. From a nitrous tap. Creamy and smooth obviously from the nitrous, interesting combo with the IPA. Not much aroma through the creamy head, but taste is buttery, nutty malts on a solid bitter hop base. Good IPA.

Concealer (838) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Bottle pours a clear copper with a caramel white head. Aroma of citrus, spice, malt, and pine. Flavor is a light sweetness, caramel, citrus, some spice, and a medium bitter finish.

July 2012. Bottle. Caramel aromas with some pine and hope. Orange color with a white head. Fruit, spice and floral flavors. A bit of hops on the finish. Not bad at all.
