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.

Kita (1027) - Koper, SLOVENIA - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l. Hazy deep golden color with large frothy off-white head. fair lacing and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruits, melon and resin hops. Taste starts refreshing fruity supported by rich and sweet malty backbone with spicy mouthfeel and heavy resinous hoppy finish with long aftertaste. Full body, oily texture and soft carbonation in palate. Perfect for my wave length...

Bottled 330ml. -from Hoppiness Koper. Darker golden coloured, small white head, citrusy hoppy nose. Sweetish malty, light caramel and pleasant citrusy hoppy taste with quite bitter finish and aftertaste. Not bad but expected better one.

33cl bottle @ Bishop’s Arms, Norrköping. Hazy amber, thick white head. Herbal notes, mango, nettles in aroma. Flavor has nettles, citrus, malt, hops. Very bitter finish. Herbs rule here. Quite pleasant, but not a fan of beers with so much herbs. Mixed feelings.

PapaVillum (424) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2014
330 ml, flaske, 5,6 % ABV, købt i Barley Wine i CPH City, 8. august 2014. Mørk honningfarvet ufiltreret engelsk West Coast IPA med kraftig hvid fint- og tætskummende skumtop på 5-6 cm. Et signifikant bundfald i form af mørke gærrester i glasset. Skummet "daler" til 1-2 cm og danner undervejs de fineste månelandskaber. Dejlig frisk aroma af citrus, grannåle, kaktus, blomster, grapefrugt, urter/krydderier. Dejlig smag af typisk IPA og så alligevel ikke. Masser af humlebitterhed, men her er noget tredie tilstede. En mild og underfundig sødme, som giver brygget en form for tredie dimension. Den er kraftig krydret, og kraftig, næsten besk, eftersmag, som efterlader en tør gane, men med et langt efterindtryk af humlesmag. Opsummering af smagsindtryk: Kraftig solid bitterhed, moderat sødme, zero surhed. I munden opleves øllet glat og blødt med en solid bitter afslutning. Kuldioxid indholdet er under medium. Medium krop. Utrolig meget smag i de 5,6 %, og ikke-fans-af IPA bør ikke starte her, men jeg er ganske begejstret. Ikke en øl, man drikker 3-4 af i træk, men fantastisk selvstændig og original IMO.

Crisp aroma that doesn’t give away the fact that there’s a fruity hoppy punch awaiting you. Despite this, your palate won’t be as skewed after.

dsmith4 (23) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2014
This is a stunning ipa, one that I’d highly recommend trying. The grapefruit, peach and mango flavours hit you straight away but not in an overpowering way.

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.
