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.

glennmastrange (2215) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Bottle. Light to moderate grain and straw for the malt, moderate flowers, herbs and lemon for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with a hint of pepper. Head is average to large, frothy, white with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is slightly hazy, but murky on the last pour, light yellow/amber. Flavor starts moderately acidic, then finishes faintly sweet, lightly acidic and lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a carbonation between lively and fizzy and has a tart finish. Light and refreshing, and full of Belgian Strong Ale tastes.

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.

Slightly tart, bright tangerine/grapefruity juicy fruity, spicy yeasty, a bit bready, lightly bitter, fruity hoppy flavor. Overall not too bad but I probably wouldn’t buy another one.
