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.

angel77 (1206) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 20, 2015
caña en cimmeria el 20-03-2015. color rubio dorado con espuma blanca persistente. Aromas y sabores frescos herbáceos y con cierto dulzor al principio que va disminuyendo poco a poco al contrario que el ligero amargo, seco, algo resinoso y afrutado que va en aumento. Cuerpo medio con 5.6 vol fácil de beber, con espuma y algo cremosa. Bastante buena.

laiti (6345) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 15, 2015
33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 30.11.2015
Aroma has fruity hops, grapefruit and some mango. Flavour has pineapple juice, grapefruit, some citrus and caramel. Mild currant-like tartness in the finish – also herbal bitterness at the end of the glass. Juicy and refreshing, quite close to Punk IPA.

Så absolut en lækker IPA'er fra England. Uhm - dejlig mega kraftig bitter humlesmag, efterfulgt af flere friske frugt-nuancer. Har en stærk karakter og er for 'hårdføre' øl-IPA-entusiaster. Nice...

turtlebirra (27) - SPAIN - MAR 12, 2015
My fav to go IPA ever!! Get a fresh case of 24x33cl, it will last less than a week. Aroma is floral, citrus, resin, tropical fruits. Appearance is pale, clear (maybe hazy sometimes), white lasting head and good lacing too. Taste is awesome, lightly bitter, light sweetness palate is medium body, oily feel, average carbonation, bitter and dry finish.

BlackHaddock (4435) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2015
330cl bottle in Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury on 11th March 2015. Impressive flavoured IPA with Mango and other tropical fruit like esters giving the beer an exotic feel. Poured a hazy orange colour with a lasting white cap, aroma and taste as above: very drinkable.

stravale (2370) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - MAR 11, 2015
Cask @ Salopian Bar, Shrewsbury [280115]
Golden, clear, thin white head
Aroma - Lots of tropical fruit, grapefruit, mango, sweet juicy fruity malts
Taste - Tropical fruits, dry zest, fruity sweet malts, apricot, lots of hops but more bitterness than fruits, alcohol a tad noticeable
Palate - Medium body, bit oily, soft sweet, bitter. Finish has more bitter zest, slightly grassy, lingering bitter zest.
Overall - I usually prefer cask over keg, but I think this might be even better on keg.
