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.

Helsdon (207) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2014
Yummmmm new beer to the Ontario market. They need to work on the copy on their bottle, which is a bit on the hokey side, but really if it’s as deserving as it’s overall, they can print anything they want. Pours golden with a little haze, just a sheet of white head. Nice floral-citrus hops nose with a seemly non-hops citrus in their too. Lovely creamy mouth-feel and flavour on the first sip, nice floral, citric bitterness in the hops, well balanced sweetness, bready malts. Lingering finish. Nice beer. Go find this beer.

(bottle - 22 oz) Clear gold with a fizzy white head. Bitter and bracing hop aroma with some grassy floral notes under it. Flavor is bitter and hoppy at the start with a very dry and almost sweet grassy middle. Finishes with a lingering bitterness.

degbert (1200) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy warm gold with a high, coarse-grained cream-colored lacy head. Nose is floral -- gardenia, geranium -- as well as orange, bergamot, and yeast/bread. Sweet up front, with a definite boozy note; it’s not a bourbon booziness, though. It almost reminds me of gin; there’s that same floral, herbal, and spiciness, and the bitterness comes off like a really good tonic water. It’s beer’s answer to a Hendricks and Fever Tree, in a good way, and it’s really refreshing. The finish is long, bitter, and cleansing. Very enjoyable.

cheap (4207) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Had this draft beer during the 7/4 beer tour 2014 at the Bocktown. Clear pale yellah. Comes on initially like a strong IPA without the terrible hops. Then I think this must be a beldgy strong ale. Little co2 and its 9% alky surely lets you know its presence. Yes, somewhat volatile and high in alky. Smell is rather mild on the nose. Finish is somewhat medicinal.
