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.

Cloudy yellowish gold with a thick white head. Crisp, somewhat dry. Hints of citrus zest and spice, peppery and grassy. Very nice, and lighter than the alcohol content would make you think.

Scipio (772) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - AUG 5, 2013
Pours a clear looking yellow with a big, yet rapidly fading white head. The aroma is quite floral. Additionally, there are citrus elements that, while not dominant, are very noticeable. These consist of lemon, grapefruit, and mango. The nose is altogether lighter, but it is enticing and well balanced. The taste is kind of sweet and has plenty of floral hops. It advertises rose hips, and I must say that I can taste this. I find lemon and yeast, mild spices pear, and orange. Aftertaste is mild yet long, and is a floral flavor with orange. It is very difficult to believe that this one contains the strength that is does. Light in body, with a thin and slick texture. Not a whole lot of carbonation. Overall, this one is good. It is different with what it offers. I think I usually look for more in a beer like this. Although its strong, its surprising to me that everything I find in here is pretty mild.
