lucklys (62) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JUL 26, 2011
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, Im 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.

Homer321 (4665) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2017
Can from a trade. Aroma is biscuit malt initially followed by a light cascade and grapefruit hop aroma. hazy orange pour with a decent sized off white head. Taste is initially all bitter then a light dusty malt flavor. After that everything just kind of fall flat and lifeless. Meh at best.

ChadPolenz (1784) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - AUG 10, 2016
2015 BJCP Category: 18B American Pale Ale

AROMA: Light piney hops; some amber malt notes but no specific character. 7/12

APPEARANCE: Dark amber/orange proper. Fairlt hazy but plenty of CO2 visible. Moderate white foam mostly dissipates. 2/3

FLAVOR: Piney hops throughout, but low on the bitterness. Low to moderate clean grainy-malt character provides balance but is not especially sweet. No off flavors, but palette is a little boring as its rather mild. 12/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body with medium-high carbonation. Crisp, but not refreshing per se. Slightly dry aftertaste. 4/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Nothing wrong with this beer other than being mild and kind of boring. Drinkability is nice at least. 6/10

TOTAL SCORE: 31/50

kathouse (1816) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - JUL 28, 2016
Golden in color with a sticky foam. Im mixed about the aroma. Some bread maybe, citrus, not really sure. Not bad just nothing outstanding. Body was under carbonated. Nothing terrific.

ContemplateBeer (2079) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 11, 2016
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.

pivo (2684) - GERMANY - JUN 24, 2016
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, its more like an IPA.
