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.

jercraigs (8794) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2015
2015-09-22. Hazy pastel yellow body with a small white head. 3+ Aroma is mild, sweet lemony hops. Flavour is pleasant, nice pithy citrus, lemon and tangerines, hints at grapefruit. Sweetish pale malt in the case. Smooth average bodied palate, soft carbonation. On the mild side overall, it has a quality to it that makes it feel a bit like a diluted version of a bigger IPA but it’s still quite nice. On tap at Craft Beer Co. Clapham, London, UK.

labeerinthum (100) - Milano, ITALY - SEP 29, 2015
Bottiglia @ Milano Beer Week. L’intensità olfattiva è elevata e la persistenza olfattiva è lunga. Il cappello di schiuma a bollicine medie e a media carbonazione rimane sul vetro con un splendido pizzo. La consistenza del liquido è nebbiosa e il colore è giallo torbido. L’amaro è deciso. Il corpo è strutturato ma non pesante. La struttura è di spessore- L’intensità gustativa è elevata, molto elevata. La persistenza gustativa è lunga. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono luppolate. Il finale è lungo. Il retrogusto è intenso. Ottima birra è l’indicazione più adeguata.

eManu (498) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 26, 2015
Pours a hazy straw color with a small white head. Aroma of almost nothing, hints of wet bread. Flavors of citrus hops, herbs, grass, hints of bananas and white pepper. Light and refreshing, light bitterness and some pleasant flavors. Nice but nothing special.

weordie (412) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2015
Pours cloudy yellow with a huge foamy head. Aroma is loaded with pineapple and other citrus fruits. Delicious citrus flavours are followed up by a lovely, crisp, bitter finish.

Brew_Cat (55) - Athens, GREECE - SEP 6, 2015
A high class, state of the art IPA from Siren. Pours dark yellow with large fizzy lasting white head. Sparkling medium body, good lacing. Average malts, mostly grain and cereal. Heavy hops, floral, citrus, orange, grapefruit, lemon with hints of exotic fruits, dry-bitter aftertaste with average duration. Very refreshing, very drinkable, very West Coast as the ad description says.

Pours nice hazy yellow with nice head.Aroma: a bit herbish, pine tree, some citrus. Taste: very well balanced, with a clear hoppy profile, but at the some time very drinkable. Fresh and crispy. Fantastic stuff.

corkyrory66 (964) - BELGIUM - AUG 30, 2015
Ipa anglaise, mais du style west coast US, « hoppy and full » dit le brasseur, de 5,6 % abv. Exemplaire valable encore 4 mois et demi, selon la norme. Soulignons la beauté de l’étiquette un rien psyché. Couleur blond doré un peu abricoté, avec un tout léger voile. Bulles fines en colonnes droites, pas très nombreuses, et lentes en montée. Joli. Mousse blanche épaisse, qui nappe à 2 mm. Arômes de malt grillé, agrumes, paille de vannier, pointe d’eau de rose. 1ère bouche soyeuse à veloutée, à la très belle entame sur les agrumes et épices, avec un fond malté. Arrière-bouche où tout s’intègre pour laisser fraîcheur et amertume. 2ème à la magnifique suite tout à fait à l’équilibre. Arrière-bouche dense, fruitée et complexe. 3ème aux superbes saveurs, fruits, épices, malt. Arrière-bouche fraîche et complète à la fois. Longueur aux nuances superbes, harmonie, équilibre. Jambes lisses et marquées. Levure douce, épicée, très belle ligne. Alcool correct malgré son faible niveau, il permet la pleine expression de cette bière. Finale douce, avec un côté un peu liquoreux. CONCLUSION : très grande ipa, aux facettes multiples. Tous les ingrédients se réunissent pour un concerto en ipa majeur … = un grand « soundwave » en langage moderne ...

StueyD (1501) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2015
A hazy golden orange coloured beer with a thick white head. A strong hop aroma, loads of pine, citrus fruit and fresh cut grass. Dry and prickly mouthfeel. The taste is a huge bitter hop affair. All the elements from the aroma, and a touch floral and a background honeyed flavour that just adds a underlying smoothness that, in the finish does temper the huge hop bitterness. Bottle from Beers of Europe.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3433) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 29, 2015
Part of a 10 euro, 6 beer blind tasting set at Trois 8’s biergarten event in Paris. It poured a light cloudy gold with a big fruity citrus + tropical fruits (lychee) aroma. Light bodied with a very dry finish. The taste is bitter pine & light fruits. I thought it might be Brewdog... alright but after the high praise I heard surrounding Siren I expected more from them.
