3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2015 On tap at the Craft Beer Picnic. A lovely copper gold with a filmy white head & a luscious juicy citrus & pine c-hop bouquet. The sharp tongue scraping carbonation I except from hoppy beers but the body is a bit light. The taste is ok but not as nice as the nose: earthy pine and light citrus. A solid though uninspiring pale ale. ----On tap at Brick Lane Mar. 2015---- Ise kadoya pale ale deep gold huge nose of pine with light fruit great soft body. The taste is prickly hop bitterness with good sweetness to it. Well balanced.

16.9oz bottle, on closeout at The Party Source. Hazy dark amber orange color. Lots of sediment visible in the glass. Thin off-white head, good lace. Looks good. pear and white grape aroma. Soft, stronger carbonation. Very dry texture, medium body. Zesty sweet taste, light bitter. Lightly soapy. Actually, nice interesting fruity pale ale, with interesting malt profile. Not bad. But weird.
