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, I’m 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 – which is the least I would expect coming from such an aggressively hopped beer.
Taste: fresh crisp herbal, some grassy hop notes mix with caramel malts and cracker dry finish. Same with the nose. Amber, semi clear, tall white head with ring lattice of lace. Medium body. very drinkable and balanced Pale Ale. tmoreau (4750) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2017
16 oz. can poured to a Czech-pils glass at Lunar Brewing Co. showing a slightly hazed, orangey/gold color, a presentable layer of soft white foam that reduced to a persistent ring & film, with spots & strands of lacing. The nose was a sachet-like mix of spice & floral hints, with citrus and orange peel. Medium bodied, with average carbonation, the taste was similar, adding just a bit of mellowing malt, good citrus & rind-like astringency, and some dryness to the finish. Not overly assertive as the description touts, and somewhat light on the distinctive malt character for the style, but a decent, nicely drinkable brew, nonetheless.

Nice aroma of citrus, pineapple. Nice light orange color with a full light tan head. Sweet malt up front. Fresh pineapple and other citrus tones come next. Bitterness is light, earthy piney. Lighter mouth feel...a bit thin. O.k. Crushable. bpar73 (1199) - Bellaire, Michigan, USA - SEP 11, 2017

Poured from a can. Aroma of hops and some pine. Clear amber coloring with a thin white lacing. Taste is pretty smooth, hop blend and a little bitterness. Good drinking beer.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2017 Has a good hoppy flavor. Bit weak on aroma. Looked good in the glass. Drinkable gkdent (15) - - AUG 24, 2017
Smooth pale ale with piney and mildly citrusy hops. Caramel color and a nice moderately roasted malt taste. Slight metallic flavor was the only negative. Tasted in Indianapolis.

Pours an amber color with a beige head. Nose is hoppy, mild citrus but not overwhelming ! Taste is hoppy with mild resin and pine ....awfully dull !
Finishes on the same tasting notes. Average at best !
Quaff Score 6 / 10......5-3-6-3-12 MrBeerFanatic (1076) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUL 6, 2017
Can on 4th of july downtown indy marketplace with the family. Drank from the can and bottle I poured it into so I cant say much on the appearance. Aromas were medium hoppy and somewhat on the pine/earthy side. Flavors were medium to light sweetness with a touch of dry. Light to medium hop flavor with a touch of caramel backing. Decent but not going to remember.
