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.

omega (684) - NEW ZEALAND - SEP 14, 2013
Light citrus with an effervescence. Not an overly heavy beer and easy drinking, but on the whole a little disappointing given the pedigree this beer comes from.

Bomber. I really dig this beer. Pours a cloudy yellow with a large head. Aromas of floral hops and lemon. Not sure what rose hips smell or taste like, so I can’t comment on that. Taste is pretty bitter with a lingering stickiness. High carbonation. Good.
