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.

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.

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 ...

Bottled, 330ml from House of Trembling Madness Bottle Shop, York. Hazy orange amber with white head. The aroma was extremely promising, fresh, hoppy and fruity, this lead to what I can only call bliss. I have to argue with the description from Siren, it wasn’t excessively dry, there was a bitter sweetness that was most pleasing, really well balanced with tropical fruits & grapefruit zestyness, Lasting and lingering on the palate, every sip was a delight through the beer. The highest rating I have given thus far and believe me it was worth it, it brought a tear to my eye in shear delight. As Pharrell Williams is currently singing on the radio -
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I’m happy,
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth,
Because I’m happy,
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you,
Because I’m happy,
Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do,

This is a beautiful beer. Perfect blend of hops and at 5.6% not too heavy. I definitely rate it as one of my all time favourites. So far I haven't managed to buy it in a bottle but only in a growler on tap. Looking hard in Australia. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
