Horus Osprey’s Fresh Catch

I love the can art on the beer. Let’s see how the liquid is inside.

ABV: 7%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Horus Aged Ales is a 100% barrel aged brewery located in Oceanside, California. We believe in pushing the boundaries on how much beer can evolve through resting in oak by using a variety of different wine and spirit barrels, adding exotic fruits, and fermenting spontaneously. The complexity of the beer portrays our passion for experimentation and patience required to produce such a unique beverage. Horus has been a decade long dream that is finally coming true and we look forward to introducing our exclusive beer to the fine people of San Diego County.”

Random: I used to love learning about Egyptian history when I was a kid.

The beer poured with a two finger, white head. It was very fluffy and dissipated slowly and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was very hazy and bright orange. I could only see a little bit of carbonation in it. The nose started with some citrus pith and earthy hops with grass. The taste started with some sweet malt and quickly transitioned into apricot and stone fruit. The alcohol was apparent on the beer and was a bit off-putting. It also had a lot of sweet malt, which made the beer a bit confusing. The beer had medium thickness with high carbonation. It had a lengthy and sweet finish. This can set me back $8, which broke down to $.50 per ounce. I was not a fan of how apparent the alcohol was on the beer or how sweet it was. I won’t be having this again.
