COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask conditioned and keg unpasteurised; Regular A 5.6% west coast IPA: golden, immensely hoppy and alive with grapefruit, peach and mango flavours. Soundwave carries her drinker to the west coast, to the golden shores of California where craft ale is nectar. She is the driest of Siren’s ales – full with flavour but subtle with bitterness. Her resinous finish will pull you off balance.

BlazerT (183) - POLAND - MAY 15, 2015
Bottle. Hazy golden with thin to medium, white head. Medium lacing, poor head retention. Nice, quite intensive floral and tropical fuits aroma with hints of citral hops. Resinous, floral hoppy taste, medium to high bitterness. Medium body, creamy texture, medium carbonation, long dry and bitter finish. In general very nice IPA, quite hoppy.

ElDesmadre (2129) - Mikołów, POLAND - MAY 9, 2015
Bottle. Citrus dominated aroma, with grapefruit leading the way. Some melon, some less resin, mango and floral notes, but like I wrote - it’s mostly about the citrus. Moderately bodied but the malts do not deliver any significant flavour. It’s really bitter but unbalanced. Really dry finish with notes of white fruit. Not really bad but unbalanced and monotonous beer. It gets better with time but only to a certain extent.

sebletitje (7411) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 7, 2015
Draft @ Tilquin English beer festival, 2015. Dorée-orangée trouble, col blanc. Arôme est houblonné, tropical, vert, fruité et léger pin. Malt prend plus la place de passager. Palais présente un profil énorme au niveau tropical/grains, mangue, ananas, notes vertes houblonnées. Un malté discret reste présent et apporte une belle balance tout en laissant la place aux houblons.

lmastr (44) - Norma, ITALY - MAY 6, 2015
Nice hoppy IPA. Aroma of hops, some sugar, nice clear hazy orange summerish appearance. Great taste of fruit into a resinous hoppy note for the palate. Love it. Great IPA. Brought me really to West Coast.

77ships (4940) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 4, 2015
Sampled draft @ Tilquin English Beer Festival 2015. Hazy orange, creamy white head. Fruity, yeasty, peach nose, light sugar. Taste is grapefruit, quite creamy, yeasty, light sugar, peach, caramel,… Malts & hops even out each other a touch but a nice IPA all the same. Nice work.
