Tall boy from StFun - thanks, Josh! Enter the risen Osiris! Nice light orange pour, mildly cloudy and with a big fluffy head. Good lacing. Soft floral and fruity nose backed by malts and grass. Medium bodied and prickly. Tastes pretty good, with the virtues of a classic APA but more of a citrus character. Good session beer from SK.

16 oz can purchased at Keg Liquors in New Albany, Indiana. The pour is orange copper, lightly hazed, with a somewhat off white head. The aroma is lemon bitter hops, a bit grassy, along with a toasted bread maltiness. The taste has a nice balance between the resin orange citrus hops and the bready malt. The palate is medium bodied, soft natural carbonation, and a dry bitter mineral finish. Solid Pale Ale.

Sampled at DLD 2014. It poured a clear golden-orange color with an off-white head. The aroma was of hops and spices, some citrus, light pine, hay, grass, with some biscuit and bread notes. The taste was bitter and lightly sweet with a medium body, a little tingly and prickly with some bitterness. Good stuff.

Received in trade from phisigben, thanks for the opportunity.
Pours just shy of clear with a golden amber color and a creamy white head that never gets too large or distant. Nice grapefruit and apricot aroma mixed with a hint of pine and hints of bready malt somewhere in the mix. Taste is a nice mix of bready biscuity malt with plenty of earthy pine and citrus hop flavor to keep me interested. Medium to light body with a fairly dry finish, moderate level of carbonation and a resinous creamy watery mouthfeel. Nice pale ale with huge amounts of hop aroma. I wouldn’t mind a touch more body here, but I could also see myself cutting the lawn with one of these too.

I wasn’t sure what to expect but since the price was only $3.50 for a pint the risk was minimal. The reward was a solid and flavorful pale ale. Not quite heavy enough to wear down the palate it still had enough depth to keep from being a boring one trick pony. Oh, and it also comes in relatively inexpensive cans if that is your thing.
Aroma / Appearance - The rosy red body glowed with warmth like a dim fire. A pillowy white head remained after a few minutes. Beneath was the smell of cedar, polished bronze, caramel, and dashes of honey. The warm bitterness glues everything together like strands of tree sap.
Flavor / Palate - Light and easy going, the first impression is of oranges and lemons. The transition towards a woody finish brings the hops into focus clearly. Over time it becomes a little predictable. However it is still good enough to keep a four pack around for hot summer afternoons. If you are in central Indiana check it out and support a local brewery.

Tap at the airport as I prayed I wouldn’t get snowed in. Pours hazy orange withbwhite head. Nose of big bright hops and tropical fruits. Tastes of grapefruit, pine, vanilla, rock candy, tangerines, bananas, and light ginger. Slight sticky but refreshing and nice
