    Dark Revolutions Everything Now..jpg described as an Oat DDH IPA at 5.9 % it lacks the body of my previous beer, it is juicy and citrusy, thanks to the hop quaternity of Citra, Mosaic, Simcoe and Galaxy. 7/10

    Siren -- Cacao & Cherry Broken Dream Twisted Breakfast Stout

    IMG_0045.JPG

    Wow! A souped up version of the Broken Dream Breakfast Stout with sour cherries,cacao nibs and bourbon barrel aged coffee.All those flavour are evident in the rich brew with the 7.4% most certainly there.Lactose is used to give a milk stout feel,this is a wonderful complex beer. 10/10

    Siren -- Moonlight Beams

    IMG_0047.JPG

    Described as an Imperial Lager with Oak,I can only assume the Imperial comes from the 7.4% while the lagering takes place in oak casks.It's a classic lager style ,clear clean and smooth with little in the way of heavy hop action but some pleasing malt flavours.Clever in that it doesn't drink 7.4% but maybe just too subtle for me. 7/10

    Siren -- Pompelmocello

    IMG_0048.JPG

    The tin says Juicy Grapefruit Sour IPA and it certainly is sour but not enough to make you wince.The grapefruit is delivered by ekuanot,bravo and mosaic hops along with zest and juice but there is balance from malts you may expect in an IPA although the tin talks about lactose delivering sweetness.I thought that sour is the dominant theme with this beer.Woke me up but an easy drink at 6%.

    Siren -- Scattered Light

    IMG_0049.JPG

    Described as a Three Wood Barley Wine I had some trepidation.In the days of my youth I found Barley Wines to be sickly ,overly sweet with an overpowering alcohol hit. This effort from Siren shows how modern brewers have improved these brews,the malts deliver a variety of sweet notes but despite being 10% there is a long dry finish.Apparently this beer is spun through Cypress,Oak and Maple spirals (what ever that means !) which I failed to notice but if that helped deliver the balance well done. 8/10

    I think that's 'spun', as in marketing!

    Thanks for that.You learn something new every day.Sadly my palate is not good enough to pick up the full range of flavours often described on the tin,but I enjoyed the beer nevertheless.

    Yes. Oak wood chips have been used in inexpensive red wine for years, hence the 'oaky' flavour. I imagine that spirals were chosen as they have a large surface area, reducing steeping time. Or they're just cashing in on the current trend for spiralizing.

    More spinning.

    Siren -- Middle Finger Discount.

    Described as IPA with Mosaic Hops and Cedar Wood.Mosaic I'm familiar with but what does cedar wood taste or smell like ? The nose is more than just mosaic and the 7.2% is well disguised while the suble sweetness of an IPA is more muted.An interesting brew but did I get wood ? Answers on a postcard 8/10
