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.

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 (1467) - 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 (3345) - 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.

Enfin un concurent de poids à Brewdog. Nez frais et aérien, passiflore et ananas. En bouche fruits blancs, pêches, fruit de la passion, ananas. Finale point trop sèche. Corps léger. Bien.

Keg at Cane & Grain, Manchester. Lovely looking IPA - hazy orange pour with big beautiful foamy white head. Plenty of grapefruit, orange and peach aroma from the beer. Taste is sweet peach and orange, however complemented well by a more bitter grapefruit finish, which is long lasting and only enhances the citrus nature of the beer. Oily on the palate with good levels of carbonation. A modern day craft beer classic in my opinion. Highly recommend.

SarkyNorthener (3081) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2015
Can’t believe I hadn’t tried this. Bottle from Stirchley wines, birmingham. Pale hazy golden beer with light floaters, medium head and patchy lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, sweet mango and tropical fruit. Taste is sweetish, mango, grapefruit, citrus and juicy hops. Lovely prickly carbonation on the palate. My ideal IPA, I could drink this forever. World class.
