Details

We love Session IPAs around Beer Hawk HQ and the Siren Half Mast is a fantastic one. The tasting notes read like a laundry list of flavours: spicy, earthy, biscuity notes which are complemented by apricot, citrus fruits, florals, resin and mango (and the kitchen sink!) It's all perfectly balanced by a good bitterness that lingers long into the dry finish. Yet, somehow all of that ends up being a light, refreshing beer. There's nothing "half" about this one unless you're talking about the ABV. Gorgeous!

Brewery Info

Siren Craft Brew don’t do boring. Even among the core range, usually reserved for the more ‘commercial’ beers, includes a 6% breakfast stout, a red IPA and Calypso, a Berliner-style sour beer. (What a wonderful beery world we live in). But this is a brewery that doesn’t know how to stop – there’s a huge range of seasonal, experimental and collaborative beers, the best of which we’re lucky enough to stock.

Yet, underpinning the whole operation is the ethos that beer should be exciting and enjoyed in the same way as fine wines, yet balanced and drinkable. It has been a remarkable journey since founder Darron Anley started the brewery in 2012, and we can’t wait to see where it will go next.

Not the best Siren craft beer, but okay

I put in a large mixed order for me and friends for the Ryder cup weekend and this was one of the beers I chose. I found this to be "watery", the strong hoppy flavour combined with the lower alcohol seemed to affect the overall "mouth-feel" which was a shame; maybe I'm too used to a "normal" IPA. I do like Siren craft and I was interested to try this super-charged beauty, but unfortunately was a little disappointed.
Game changer

I've never been convinced by these 'half strength' beers before - they tend to not be much better than alcohol free beers like Nanny State.
And then I tried this one. I think Siren have finally made a half-IPA that makes sense. Really well balanced, full of flavour and not lacking in body. Cheers!
The perfect session ale

I was a little sceptical when i looked at this Christmas present beer due to it's low alcohol volume, however, it far exceeded my expectations! Light and refreshing yet very hoppy. Balanced to perfection. I will buying more of this beer for all day celebrations!
Amazing beer

Excellent - tastes like a fully-hopped American IPA. Great as usual from Siren.
