Circling back round to where it all began, Twists is our anniversary West Coast IPA. This beer embodies everything we love about the style. Pale malts allow punchy, fresh, resinous hop character to flourish, citrus aromas jump from the glass and it sings with clean, unapologetic bitterness
We wanted to go back to our roots with Twists to make a West Coast IPA. Back in the day, our Flagship IPA Soundwave had serious west coast vibes, we probably pushed the style to the max with a team favourite collaboration with Boneyard – Dippy & The Equinox.
This beer takes influence from one of our favourite examples of the style in the world. We dry hopped in short, frequent bursts with Simcoe and Centennial, joined by Amarillo and Chinook at various points. It was given 3 weeks of maturation time during this process, while we naturally carbonated the beer to lock in all those incredible aromas. The 21.6 g/l dry hop is much higher than average for the style, giving us an aroma that really jumps from the glass. As a result, there is a subtle hp haze present – sorry, purists.
Twists is crisp and clean to drink. It’s got a beautiful resinous and piney character and entirely unapologetic bitterness that leaves you ready for the next sip. Malts are kept pale, employed largely to allow the hops to shine the best they can. We used a 6:1 ratio of So4 to Cl2 in the water profile, balancing the sweetness of the alcohol and allowing that fresh, crisp bitterness to work its magic. We cannot wait for you to try this beer
Anniversary West Coast IPA
Siren Craft Brew
Siren Craft Brew was born in 2013 with a simple idea in mind: to introduce exciting, full-ﬂavoured and forward-thinking beers to as many people as possible.
There are now six Sirens of Siren Craft Brew. These Sirens characterise our flagship beers. They’re adventurous but drinkable, designed to be accessible to those lured into craft beer, yet flavourful enough for those seasoned beer fans to return to time and time again.
In addition, we have a prolific brewing schedule, with over 100 releases planned in 2019 alone. We are lucky enough to have been named the ‘Best Brewer in England’ by Ratebeer users in 2015, and added to that with a Supreme Champion Beer of Britain award by CAMRA this year in 2018.
Whether you fancy a fruity, hoppy pale ale on a hot sunny day or an unctuous, satisfying stout at the end of an evening – we’ve got you covered.
