Pours a light amber with a small head in my DFH sniffer. Smell is like a fresh bowl of fruit. Taste is very crisp and light. Somewhat like an orange sherbert ice cream cone dipped in pineapple juice. Lacing is sticky. This is the best, lightest APA I have ever had. I could drink this like it is going out of style. Three Floyds does the best APA's, but this one is better if you are looking for a beer with an easy, light drinkablity, at a lower ABV.

From can to nonic pint...

A: Pours a slightly cloudy, light orange hue. About two fingers of frothy eggshell white head. Head lingers for a good while, then gently recedes to a quarter finger. Lots and lots of lacing on this one, sticky and inviting. This was served at a pretty cold temperature in the fridge, but even I didn't expect there to be so many particles in the brew. Looks like the asteroid belt from Empire Strikes Back in there. I enjoy my beer debris-free, thank you very much. But whatever. It's probably my fault for chilling it down too much in the fridge.

S: Lots of bready malt and some nice citrus hops. Bitter pine resin on the finish. Light, crisp, inviting.

T: Lots of grain and malt, along with a little bit of orange creamsickle and grapefruit zest on the mid and back palate. Just a dash of bittering, piny hops on the finish with a kiss of orange and some lightly toasted grains. A significant malt presence and a refined hop profile make this one quite memorable.

M: Balanced. A true APA with an incredibly light finish and a toasted biscuit flavor to boot. This one was made with love.

O: Sun King Osiris is a fantastic APA, one of the best I've had. It is very light and refreshing, yet offers up just enough complexity and hop presence to please the hardcore nerd. For once we get an APA that's not just an IPA hiding in sheep's clothing. Osiris drinks fantastic and would absolutely be a staple in my fridge were it available in my neck of the woods. Great work here.

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.

Poured from a can a bright clear gold color with a single finger of wet, bubbly head. Light lacing on sides of glass.

Aroma of fresh grass, orange and grapefruit. Light touch of maltiness.

Taste of grapefruit, orange, a bit of spicy herbs and grainy malts. Finishes clean with a mild bitterness.

Medium bodied and crisp with a sharper carbonation.

A real nice little Pale Ale from Sun King. I'll be sure to grab more on my next trip thru Indiana.
