3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can thanks to Sixthglass. Pours a cloudy orange color with a thick white head. A sweet biscuit nose with abundant pine and citrus hops. The flavor is a super smooth Pale with lemon zest, oranges, light bitterness, smooth biscuit balances it out. Some lingering bitterness. Nice. Akin to Daisy Cutter. I expect some high ratings of this brew.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thanks to lurchingbeast for sending this to me recently.
Pours a slightly hazy bright golden orange color with a frothy, pillowy two finger white head that slowly settles into a thick lasting cap. Chunks of soapy lacing left behind.
Slightly earthy, floral hop aroma with hints of pine, earthy grass and a ton of citrus fruit. Hints of grapefruit, orange peel and pineapple. Nice pale malt presence with some biscuit notes.
Full bodied especially for the style with a blast of dry, earthy hops up front that give off a nice lingering bitterness. Lots of pine needle/earthy flavor along with a decent amount of light and citrus fruit. Not as sweet or citrusy as aroma suggests with mostly grapefruit and pineapple. There’s a nice pale malt backbone underneath that makes itself know without taking away from the hops at all. Biscuity with a subtle grainy Graham character. Well balanced and complex. Very flavorful and easy to drink.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I can’t agree with the other reviewers. My take: caramel malt-5%, wheat-10%, citrus carbonation-10%, hops-75%. Not much depth, heavy on the "piney" hops, but cleans the palate and awakens the appetite very well.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 oz. can at RapeBeer’s place. Thanks, Nico! Pours a mostly clear golden-amber-orange color with a small eggshell white head. Big floral hops, grapefruit and orange citrus, caramel malts, and some resinous piney and earthy notes. Flavor worked for me better than the aroma. Light-bodied, with a citrusy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not quite on the level of Alpha King or Daisy Cutter, but damn close.

Surprised by the so so reviews. Thought this was awesome. Super clean happy dry apa. Reminded me of daisy cutter. Refreshing. Sessionable. Great juicy citrus and floral hop character with a pleasant touch of sweet toasted caramel malt backing. Great.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2012 In the category of Daisy Cutter with a touch less edge and easier drinking. Pours a nice golden orange with a thin white head that fades fast and leave a trace of lace. Nice citrus and pine hop profile without being over bearing. A good brew to share with no craft fans as a gateway. A bit over priced for what it is.

Pours golden-orange out of a 16 oz can. Nice aroma of citrus and floral hops. Flavor is nicely balanced with nice grapefruit notes, followed by a slightly bitter finish. Nice pale.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pouring it into a standard tumbler, it radiates a bright golden amber with glimmers of straw yellow highlights. It appears crystal clear with constant trails of carbonation that calmly float from the bottom of the glass, building a fluffy white 3-finger head of large bubbles that melt into a creamy froth, leaving minimal fragile lacing along the sides of the glass. * * *
The aroma holds quite a bit of grainy honey wheat bread and soft caramel in the backbone. Elsewhere, there are plenty of fresh floral hops and tropical citrus hops, including grapefruit pith and lemon peel, with a small possibility of some papaya, that overwhelms my nose initially. Faint piney hops hide in the background, while something spicy and resembling graham cracker brings up the rear. Overall, it is very reminiscent of an IPA. * * *
Starting off with a slow sip, I’m met with caramel, wheat bread drizzled with honey and sprinkled with brown sugar, and grainy, toasted malts. All of the early flavors prepared my tongue for the dry, lightly spicy hops, comprised of zesty grapefruit and lemon pulp as well as some pine notes. The generous amount of hops in this American Pale Ale awakened my tastebuds before smoothing it all out with a final blanket of sweet pale malts. * * *
The Osiris Pale Ale falls into the medium-bodied range once it warms up a bit, though fresh from the refrigerator, it starts more with a lighter mouthfeel. Regardless of body, though, it remained crisp and smooth the whole way through, especially with the lively carbonation, and finished dry and slightly bitter – which is the least I would expect coming from such an aggressively hopped beer.
