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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Iíve always known this to be a decent brew however; this time it is served in a tulip glass from a tap that is almost out and left with little carbonation. Impressively there is still massive lacing and stickiness all the way up the glass, which had just been sprayed with water before serving. So needless to say this beer has a great gummy, sticky, creamy mouthfeel that doesnít let go. The aroma is moderately citrusy. The taste begins with sweet fruity citrus that develops into a mildly bitter citrus body. The finish is a classic bitter hop that begs the mouth for another sip. Long after swallowing, the super stickiness clings the mild bitter citrus hop finish to the entire mouth including the tongue. I taste this beer very strongly in my mouth until I have something else. Overall a decent brew.

Can. The aroma is hops and that of a standard pale ale. The taste is solid and smooth. Nothing special, but solid.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sweat papaya and mango aroma with a very crakery malt smell to match. Taste is very sweet papaya and mango initially, mild hop bit in the finish. Crackery biscuit malt carries throughout. I remember this beer being more dank hop heavy.....maybe itís because I drank it out of a growler that had been in my hot car for a few hours before I put it in the fridge.

Can from the brewery - Pours golden with a filmy off-white head. Nose is grapefruit, apricot, mango, and a touch of pine hops with a sweet, lightly bready malt base. The malt isnít overly sweet and dries out after an initial fruity blast.Taste is the same, with the hops balancing between grassy and herbal and citrusy. Dry malt base with just a touch of sweetness peeking through on the finish. Thin and well-carbonated--a bit bubbly. Solid stuff--reminds me a bit of New Glarus Moon Man, though with a slightly different hop profile and a bit sweeter.

Can. Honey-colored with soft haze and a thin head of sandy tan foam. Dried orange peel, burnt sugar, pine needles and wet grass in the nose -- a very green, chlorophyll-filled aroma. Sugar cookies add balance in the background. The flavor replicates the fragrance, though the teeter-totter tilts a little more toward the side of grassy bitterness, with subtle honey rolls mixed in. Thick medium body; mild CO2. Meh.
