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.

The first word that came out of my mouth was "wow". This is a clear demonstration of Sirens high quality when it comes to craft beer.

Butters_Hard (8) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2014 does not count
This is pale gold in colour, full bodied head with aromas of grapefruit and white flowers. Flavours of grapefruit and mango, citrus and pine abound. The malt background isn’t overshadowed so there is a malty sub note. The finish is fully bitter, with a lasting citrus peel note. A very delicious and well balanced IPA.

mattyhennessy (272) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - JUL 16, 2014
Paddle at two row. Pours a pale yellow with a small white head. Very strong grapefruit and lychee aroma and flavour, with citrus peel bitterness. Almost camenbert cheesy taste on the back palate. Something seems a little off about this. Drinkable, but doesn’t reflect the high reviews

migajos (152) - Warsaw, POLAND - JUL 8, 2014
On tap at Czeska Baszta Warsaw, Poland. Sweet fruity, dry, quite intensive, nothing special though. A bit too much on a sweet side.

nimbleprop (4637) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 4, 2014
12oz pour at Kaelderkold Barcelona pours a hazy gold with some frothy white head. Nose is solid, fruit, starfruit, perfume, some bright citrus peel, a little pine. Sort of a mix between what is typically East coast and what is typically West coast. Flavor has a bit of honey sweetness followed by some chivey character, some grapefruit, some orange, pine, soap, just a bit of the tropical fruit from the nose. May sound a bit scattered but everything is blending well. Lightly sweet, lightly bitter finish. Well balanced and drinkable.
