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.

kaserov (1111) - Oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 17, 2017
Color amarillo, translúcido, con capa de espuma blanca de dos dedos de grosor y buena retención. Carbonatación media. Textura acuosa y ligeramente chispeante. Aroma a fruta dulce, cítricos, fruta tropical, con toques herbales. En boca hay fruta tropical y cítricos. Pomelo, naranja, mango, piña... Sin ser realmente un zumo. Toques herbales y de grano. Final resinoso de escaso amargor. Postgusto frutal.

poech73 (492) - Braine, BELGIUM - DEC 15, 2017
From Huens Bières spéciales >> Très bonne IPA. Nez caractéristique du style fort aromatique parfumé aux senteurs d'agrumes: le citron confit, la mandarine et un pointe herbacée. Dès l'attaque je reçois des saveurs maltées aux arômes d'amande douce et d' amaretti et accompagnées d'une petite rondeur discrète. Bière qui a du corps grâce à l’effet charnu du froment présent surtout en milieu de bouche. Amertume tendu mais pas trop agressive. Finale un peu rêche sur des notes farineuse. Super désaltérante

ForlornHope (546) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2017
Bottle at home. Pours slightly hazy yellow. There is an initial white head but this quickly disappears. Good, powerful aroma of nettle and citrus, funky hop. Slight sweetness makes way for a huge bitterness. Light syrup malt and more fruit and a long, dry, hoppy finish. Tasty.

Fizzy tropical fruit ipa, some mango, bit citrusy. Light sweetness with modetate bitterness, bit too carbonated for my like, but overall decent thirst quencher.

Fruity and zesty with jackfruit, mango and peach to balance out the bitterness. Great with heavier meals. Enjoyable and drinkable. Isn’t that all we want?

Hazy straw colour, average carbonation, medium frothy head with some lacing. Aroma is mango, lemon, ale malts. Tastes sweet at first with a bitter finish, good balance, ale malts, biscuit, spices, lemon, mango, grapefruit, light yeasty funk. Light bodied, crisp and refreshing, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Nice.

GoufCustom (2258) - HONG KONG - OCT 13, 2017


330 ml bottle bought at YATA in MOKO, Mong Kok.

Looks: Translucent golden honey colour with a cloud of misty yeast particles; One finger head with crumpety white foam which lasts for 90 seconds; Excellent sticky lacing with near zero carbonation.

Aroma: Fragrant Ale malt, with mangoes, grapefruits, peaches, floral nectar, sugar, light spices, light biscuits, lemon and light grass.

Taste: Mid to light sweet fair Ale malt, with grains, wheaty tartness, grapefruits, yellow fruits, floral, fair molasses, woody spices, biscuits, strong lemon, mid to strong bitter hops and grass.

Body: Medium body. Dry, slick and creamy palate.

Mouth Feel: Good Ale maltyness in a thick and very smooth background. Grainy, with strong grapefruit hops with yellow fruits, floral and strong spices. Fair sweetness, dry biscuity with strong lemon to round. Simple and quite nice!

Hoppiness: Mangoes, grapefruits, peaches, floral nectar, light spices and lemon in nose. Grapefruits, yellow fruits, floral, woody spices, strong lemon and grass in taste; Bitterness is quite strong for a lasting, high astringent bitter-sweet grassy malty finish.

After Taste: Dry. Creamy hoppy and bitter to mouth.

Comments: Very straight forward West Coast IPA, where its aroma and taste is rather restrained compare to other wildly-hopped brews. Very competent with attractive looks and creamy palates, but a little more tropical nose with go a long way. Drinkable!
