COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Osiris Pale Ale is an assertive American Pale and is not meant for the timid. Crafted by our Brewers for our Brewers, Osiris blends three choice varieties of American hops to create a spicy, citrus hop punch that is sure to satisfy any hop head. Every batch of Osiris is dry-hopped towards the end of fermentation for maximum hop flavor, aroma and character.

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, Iím 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 Ė which is the least I would expect coming from such an aggressively hopped beer.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2016 Pint can from Keg Liquors; dated 5/12/16 (Packaged-on date) Aroma: Moderate citrusy/lightly floral Cascade-like hops and lighter caramel biscuit at about a 60/40 balance. Very SNPA inspired. Appearance: Caramel gold with soft carbonation holding up a foamy white cap that settles into a patchy skin. Flavor: Starts out more malty and gradually builds up momentum hop-wise; the finish is at once semi dry but citrusy and lightly bitter. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Good SNPA clone that is solid all around, but is nothing to seek out as an exemplar in the style.

Bright hop nose, shimmering pale gold, low tight head. Crisp body with a light malt taste that dissolves quickly into a tight hop bitterness. Thin, and very happy for a PA, itís more like an IPA.

Can shared by Miles. Osiris is a clear brassy gold with a caramel fruity aroma. Kind of middle of the road, it has a med-full body with a fruity sweet flavor and a juicy hop character but doesnít leave such a strong impression.

16 ounce can from Delocks. Pours a golden orange copper with little head and a lot of carbonation. Aroma has citrus and sweet fruits and sweet malts with some apple. Taste is of sweet malts, citrus, sweet fruits. Biscuity malts. Light and sweet. The carbonation is constant, the alcohol present is very light. Light to medium bodied, and the blend is solid. Finishes more sweet than bitter and fairly short. This is a decent pale, to the light side, without a lot to distinguish it from the pack. 13.8

Awktoberfest (379) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - APR 26, 2016
Pretty like able beer. It definitely tows the line between a true apa and classic pale. Aroma could offer more. Some hop taste but not super clear or true. Just a little bitterness which is a ok. I think if they increase the nose on this that would carry through the other aspects of this beer and make it a better experience. As it was I'll have another and try their spring IPA. My mother in law picked these up for me. What a great mother in law. She had glowing things to say about the staff at sun king. So thank you for taking care of mom in law sun king. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This stuff is solid. Itís clear and orange south a foamy head. Itís got a nice citric hop nose. Itís pretty mild but nice and full bodied with just a touch of hop bitterness. This isnít really exceptional but drinkable and tasty regardless.

On tap. Golden pale color. Nose was vacant. Palate is decent, even balance of hops and malt. Not at all complex. Balanced, drinkable, but not remarkable.
