Many thanks to Gavin for providing the bottle.
Pours a dark red, brownish color, with a huge orange-brown head. Awesome looking beer with an unusual color combination.
The nose offers an interesting interplay between lemon infused blood orange and biscuity, toffee topped malts. Results in a great aroma variety, ranging from a fresh, fruity bitterness to an earthy, sweetness. Its malt foundation grows more profound as the beer warms up, revealing a coppery hint in it.
Has a medium carbonation among a very soft mouthfeel with a surprisingly full and still refreshing appearance.
Hops are on the palate from first glance, revealing grassy qualities, coated up by earthy, slightly wooden malts. The hops grow more bitter, as lime gets present, as do the malts, exhibiting a gentle sweetness, due to toffee and a whiff of caramel. The sweetness gets perfectly adapted by the hops, producing a luscious fruitiness. The finish then reveals bakers chocolate among soft, earthy malts and dry, pleasantly bitter hops.
A pleasantly hoppy red Ipa, with a very well aligned malt and hop bill, featuring an unusual, dough malt profile. Hops gain the upper hand during the dry finish, while the malts are evolving the whole time, interacting perfectly with the them.

[Reading Beer Festival, 2015] - Siren Craft Brewery Liquid Mistress, 5.8%, dunkelbraun mit rötlichem Einschlag, mittlere Krone. Kastanienbraun mit rötlichen Reflexen. Hopfige und schokoladige Noten, rote Früchte. Leicht süßlich. Kräftiger Körper, leicht ölig. Im Antrunk gar nicht süßlich, sondern trocken und bitter. Wiederum hopfige und leichte schokoladige Noten, getragen von einer deutlichen Beerenfruchtigkeit. Zur Mitte dann etwas Grapefruit spürbar, weiter schokoladige Noten. Im Abgang hopfig bitter, anhaltend und kräftig. Sehr interessantes, vielschichtiges Bier.

Cask at CBC Clerkenwell - London. Pours clear, dark red with a fine, foamy head. Loads of dank pine in the nose, some doughy bread, ripe orange. Light to medium sweet flavor with plenty of oily pine, ripe orange, some grainy and toasty bread. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lots of resinous, sticky pine in the finish, loads more ripe citrus fruits. Really tasty.

Really good beer. Nose is fruit cake, roasted malts and a hint of hop citrus aromas, taste is similar with nice rich mouthfeel and burnt sugar sweetness and a nice long bitter finish.

This is tasty. Pours red with minimal head. Smells of bitter caramel and hops. Tastes of raisins and citrus with some yeast and bread, but only mildly. Very light mouthfeel, even though there is a bit of stickiness and lingering hops at the end.
