Isis Imperial IPA
brewed by Sun King Brewing - Indianapolis, Indiana
has a sister and her name is Isis. Continuing the Sun King tradition
of celebrating palindromic batches with specialty beers (ex. Batch
111: Golden Slumber, Colt 444, etc.), head brewer Dave Colt devoted
Batch 555 to crafting an Imperial IPA based on the malt bill and hop
profile of Osiris Pale Ale and dubbed it Isis.
From Wikipedia: Isis "was worshipped as the ideal mother and wife as
well as the matron of nature and magic. She was the friend of
slaves, sinners, artisans, and the downtrodden, and she listened to
the prayers of the wealthy, maidens, aristocrats, and rulers. Isis
is often depicted as the mother of Horus, the hawk-headed god of war
and protection...Isis is also known as protectress of the dead and
goddess of children.
The name Isis means 'Throne.' Her headdress is a throne. As the
personification of the throne, she was an important representation
of the pharaoh's power. The pharaoh was depicted as her child, who
sat on the throne she provided."
