Can from rayl101 - pours deep gold with a thin but sustained head. Nose is more like a lager. The taste is citrus at first but leans more towards a dry pine. Dry finish.

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.

Had this at the brewery and also in a tall boy can. Pours a nice copper orange color. Aroma of citrus, hops, and pine. Really nice pale ale, smooth and refreshing.

Growler from the brewery. Light amber with a white head that laces the glass. Pleasent hop aroma. Well balanced hop and malt flavor with a citrus finish. I really like the hop character of the beer. Well done.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2012 Wow. I remember liking the Osiris when I first had it, but it didnít jump out at me. Got some almost 2 years later and itís a REALLY GOOD pale ale. My initial rating is below, and I gave it a 3.2.
Pale ale color - nice, pretty much in the same range, but a good color for this style. THE NOSE IS AMAZING. I think theyíve surpassed Alpha King in terms of the "Indiana" pale ale. Lots of Citrus, and I think there are some Simcoe hops in here...Iím getting that cat piss aroma (I LOVE THAT). Taste is smooth and the flavor hops are there with just the right amount of bite. It is not harsh. Good job, guys!
------ Old Review from 6/16/2010 -------- the most part, this is your standard pale ale, but it does have itís own unique hop flavor - it doesnít taste like a Sierra Nevada clone. Iíd say that the hops give off a tinge of tobacco, but mostly itís citrus. I was hoping for more of an Alpha King type zing, but no such luck. Comes in 16-oz cans, which is neat. Sorta expensive at $11.99/4-pack though.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2011 Sampled at Brewery. Appearance is light amber color with light, quickly dissipating head. Aroma is most citrus with notes of lemon and grapefruit. Taste is dominated by the hops with citrus being the main notes. Malt sweetness is light which doesnít provide much balance to the hop character. Palate is medium-bodied, good carbonation, and bitter finish. An okay Pale Ale.

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 youíre a fan of citrus-hops pale ales, youíll enjoy this one quite a bit.

P: Medium-light body with medium-high carbonation - finish is dry.

Can: Pours a clear copper with orange tones and a medium frothy off-white head that is mostly lasting. Hoppy aroma is a sweet citrus with hints of spices. Spicy flavor is sweet and hoppy with hints of grapfruit. Has a creamy sticky mouthfeel with a flavorful bitter finish. Very refreshing and delicious.
