COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We rely on age-old tools in the brewery despite being surrounded by high technology. As a sort of compass, we use the six pointed brewer’s star to help navigate uncharted brews. The cardinal points of water, malt, grain, yeast, hops and a brewer make the baseline. From there anything goes. Sometimes the journey is as important as the destination.

You’ll notice a slight bitterness in Compass derived from our use of rose hips accentuated by high effervescence. Drink it cold from a fluted or tulip glass. And by all means, avoid sea serpents.

Draught at Lexington Beerworks. Lemon and yeast. Floral body and nose. Grassy. This exceeded my expectations.

Elwood (3009) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Serving: 22oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pour a slightly hazy yellow with a bright white head. The nose is very floral with notes of grapefruit and lemon. Surprisingly sweet on the tongue. This one could use a little more balance. The citrus comes through but the florals border on overwhelming. High effervescence and a light to medium mouthfeel. I can’t say this one did much for me.

translucent straw with bubbly white head and yeasty particulates. medium body with medium-high carbonation.

rosehips and grapefruity hops, metallic wild yeast, cracker-like malt.

taste: stale hop bitterness, fruitiness, dry metallic yeast notes, and light cracker-like malt.

if fermented with a rounder, cleaner yeast, this would be really good.

Smell is delightfully hoppy, moldy, and bitter. The taste is very bitter with strong hop presence, good citrus flavor, and wheaty. Really good, really strong. I like
