COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ever since we started brewing, we have always aimed to brew a “pure” and “clean” American Pale Ale. At Ise Kadoya, we capitalize on the characteristics of the Cascade hops by balancing the sweetness, body and bitterness of the aroma. We were very fortunate to be recognized by beer professionals with an award at the Australian International Beer Awards in 2003. Because we only use Cascade hops in our Pale Ale, the aroma differs slightly from batch to batch based on the particular characteristics of each years’ harvest. We invite you to enjoy the wonderful aromas and flavor that only Cascade hops can deliver.

Sample poured from bottle at Encinitas Ale House in Encinitas, CA. Very hazy,translucent pale orange copper with modest, fine head and excellent lacing. Aroma is citrus and grain. Taste smooth well balanced mix of citric hops and grainy malts. Medium body and smooth, foamy carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

shoulderbroken (1909) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 14, 2011
Tap at Popeye. Amber orange colour with a small white thin bubbly head. Aroma not very strong, hint of fruit, grapefruit, orange and lime. Taste is bitter and fruity and at the same time a bit sweet and boozy. Nice and spritzy in the mouth. Finish is slightly bitter but soon fades.

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2011
Deep golden pour with a thick white head. The aroma is fairly sweet with a bit of old, slightly oxidized hoppiness up front. A bit of orange, but not much else. Moderate bitterness, but isn’t nearly as fresh as it almost certainly should be. Yeasty and quite dull. Meh

Cascade hops aroma mixed with a somewhat odd sweet flavor. Overall, a decent APA, if a little thin.

Bif (1392) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 23, 2011
Bottle- Pours a very hazy copper color with a big off-white head that fades to lacing. Aroma is primarily of citrus ad grain. Has somewhat of a roasted malt flavor with some citrus and a lasting bitterness. A fairly medium body which is quite smooth. Not bad for a Japanese brewed Pale Ale. I imagine it would be much better fresh on tap.

JK (4376) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - DEC 21, 2010
An opaque, copper colored beer. Gushed from the bottle but low carbonation. Mild hop aroma. Flavor is more complex with grain and more hops, as well as flowers and light spice. Mildly sweet aftertaste, followed by hops. Nice palate.

douglas88 (5837) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 18, 2010
500 ml bottle thanks to Eric who picked this up in SoCal. Pours a very cloudy orange color with a huge creamy white head. A smooth biscuit and light hop aroma. A smooth nice flavor; sweet fruity hops, honey, dominant biscuit pale malts, some light bitterness in the finish. Some metal as well. Decent.

Tmoney99 (10462) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2010
Bottle. Poured a clear amber color with a large frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate earthy hop and malt aroma. Medium body with a dry slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium chalk dry bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would not recommend this to a freind.

Leighton (10534) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2010
Bottle. Pours a hazy, orange-gold with a soft, white head. Pleasant, hoppy aroma with malty notes. Flavor has wonderful balance. Begins sweet with light bread and caramel, then goes into bitter territory. The hop presence is quite strong, a touch that I quite liked. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes lightly sweet with lingering, though not excessive, hops. Very good. I’m surprised by some of these low rates.

Bart (2941) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 7, 2010
Bottled, light amber coloured beer with medium carbonation and an average white head. Light fruity touched malty hinted aroma. Medium to full palate. Finish is bitter hoppty, light fruity and dry sweet bitter near the end. Surprising but rather medium pale ale.
