3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from one pint can into glass.
Aroma: not very apparent spicy hop aroma that is probably due to being too chilled. As it comes toward room temperature, malt begins to come out.
Taste: crisp, hoppy flavor that ends with bitterness at the back of the throat.
Appearance: rich, clear amber with thin head and good lacing. Hops dominate with a hint of malt in the background.
Overall: this is a good representation of a well-hopped IPA that’s worth trying.

16oz can from Crown Liquors in downtown Indy. Golden color, aroma is lost on me thanks to my sinuses. Taste is of citrus hops with a nice malt background. This is a very well balanced beer and I wish I had more than I brought home with me. If you’re a fan of citrus-hops pale ales, you’ll enjoy this one quite a bit.

Pounder? I barely know her! Can. Pours clear amber with a medium sized white head and decent retention. The aroma is a bit muted but has plenty of floral notes. The taste has a nice hop punch, a nice grpefruit citrus backbone.. and some sweet caramel maltiness on the finish. Very well balanced and solid offering.

16 oz can. Pours clear golden orange with a creamy white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.
The aroma is sweet biscuity malts with some earthy, fruity hops.
The flavor is biscuity malts with some spicy grassy hops and a little fruit. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, OK biscuity pale ale with decent hops.

Amber in color with a lovely head, Osiris Pale Ale exhibits an aroma of fruits and spices that could have come from a Middle Kingdom marketplace, minus the flies and camel dung. Bitter and hoppy with a dry finish, it is a solid pale ale.
---Cheers until next time!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can @ home, picked up at Highland Wine. Pours a fairly clear, dark orange appearance with a nice off white, creamy head. Moderately potent spicy, piney, orange citrusy aroma with a bit of a floral note going on. Starts out a bit sweet with some cracker and finishes a little more dry and hoppy. Some grapefruit notes. Aroma was nice but the flavor ended a little blandly. Ok.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (grapefruit), with a light note of diacetyl.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Very little aroma, which includes some butter. Pretty thin, watery, and stark in the mouth...almost seems diluted. I wouldn’t go as far as to call it flavorless, as there is ample bitterness, but yeah...it’s surprisingly weak.
