3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(16oz can courtesy of iii9ix3). Pours clear copper with giant 2 finger of-white head and lots of carbonation. Aroma of cardboard, citrus, and pine/wood. Taste is malt sweetness with hop bitterness. Its a bit thin, but it makes for a sessionable beer that has some nice flavors. A pretty solid beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured into a pint glass.
4.0 A: Clear yellow light orange color. Two and a half fingers of frothy, but somewhat dense white head. Good retention and tons of lacing.
3.5 S: Overall pretty clean with neutral malt aroma. Hops are mainly floral in nature with some herbalness in the background. They aren’t that strong, but very nice smelling.
4.0 T: Soft bitterness. Again, really clean with neutral malt. Slightly piney and grapefruit hops.
4.0 M: Heavier light to lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Very smooth and slight creaminess.
3.5 D: Not a bad brew and no problems. However, it’s a bit too straightforward and perhaps a touch boring. Don’t get me wrong, I really appreciate the craftsmanship here, but it just isn’t that exciting.
Serving type: can

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a golden color. Only the slightest thin white head. No hop aroma, no malt aroma. I am getting something a little musty. Taste is thin, watery and light to medium bitterness. No hop flavor. This tastes like an aggressive ESB to me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
can thanks to awiseman01, pours light copper/deep gold with a medium white head. Aroma is full of nice citrus and grassy hop notes, really nice nose. Flavor is fairly sweet with pale malts and again some grassy notes that are turned bitter with huge notes of pine, peach and citrus hops. Flavorful stuff.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can… Clear golden ale with a mid-sized, frothy, off-white head. Lengthy retention. The nose is of biscuit and moderately toasted grains flanked by musky and citrusy hops – lemon peel stands out. Medium to full-bodied with dancing carbonation. The flavor is of medium bitter, spicy, peppery hops. Lengthy, moderately bitter, dry finish. Thanks to MI2CA for providing this brew!

3.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Okay. I’m not a fan of pale ales and I’m not on drinking terms with IPAs. I appreciate how important hops is to the beer making process but I do NOT appreciate the unbridled flavor of hops found in pale ales and IPAs. There, I said it. That being said, I actually enjoyed Sun King’s Osiris Pale Ale. Now, I must admit to being at least a LITTLE biased in favor of Sun King, which is the only functional local brewery in Indianapolis. Osiris is a really smooth beer that lacks the unpleasant bite of most pale ales. The warm golden color is immediately inviting and the smooth flavor is instantly rewarding. At $5 a growler, Osiris is an easy win if you ever swing by the Sun King Brewery in Downtown Indianapolis.

Pours an extremely clean straw gold with one finger of sticky white head. Absolutely perfect. Nose is mildly citrusy with some pine. Mildly oxidized. Flavor is spicy with citrus zest and bready malt. Palate shows a low bitterness and a medium body.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
I poured a 16 oz can into a shaker at a now-forgotten bar in downtown Indy. A lovely deep tan color, this smelled tantalizingly of fresh hops and honey sweetness. As these aromas suggested, this was a bigger, more robust apa than what you might normally expect from a local start-up microbrew. The carbonation was a bit too much, but overall this left a pleasant sensation across the middle and tip of the tongue. A nice offering.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma is a bit light, some citrus and crisp zest. The beer pours golden amber with an awesome creamy white head. The flavoris crisp grapefruit citrus with a bit too much of a dry finish.
