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.

Bart (2938) - 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.

joeyplush (648) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2009
Excellent appearance - pale copper/orange with a thick creamy offwhite head and excellent lacing. Aroma of grassy and resin hops, some bakery scents and caramel. Flavor is mild, with caramel malt and some citrus hops in the finish. Unique beer that I would try again.

50cl Bottle@ mondial de la biere Strasbourg. Disappointing nose. Pale gold in color. American pale stile. Light not so clean spicy nose. Bitter sharp tase, a bit harsh resinous and lingering. Dry hay. Thin mouthfeel

argo0 (11823) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 21, 2009
50cl bottle. Large off-white head atop hazy light amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, orange/floral, light grapefruit, honey, bread. Taste is medium sweet, orange/grapefruit, some straw, light bread, honey. Light-medium body, light acidity. Tasty APA -- were it at SNPA prices, i’d surely buy it again.

hopscotch (9858) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 23, 2009
Bottle… Hazy golden ale with a large, frothy, off-white head. Fantastic retention. The aroma is floral and sweet – caramelized grains and honey. Medium to full-bodied with gentle carbonation. Sweet, floral essence of orange blossom honey is nearly balanced by metallic hop bitterness – nickel and/or iron. Mid-length, bittersweet finish with a metallic tinge on the outside and back of my tongue. A big SHOUT goes out to dmschefke for providing this unique beer!

eaglefan538 (2914) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 19, 2009
Bottle shared by Robert at SL, what a guy! The pour was pale with a hay-straw type color. The aroma was corney, some piney type hops. The flavor was metallic, watery, oxidized, corn-lager like. Odd for a pale ale, travelled not well? Dunno. The mouthfeel was light and not very clean.

omhper (20346) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 19, 2009
Draught at Eni-bru, Osaka. Clear golden, small head. Fresh citric nose. Mid-dry and light-medium bodied. Crystallic and caramelly backdrop to citric yuzy hops. Drinkable and freshening aromatic US style pale ale with medium bitterness.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 10, 2009
Lightly hazed amber liquid with a small stable lid of off-white soft cream colored bubbles. Citric scents dominate. Orange zest and light caramel. Light grapefruit juice start. Toasted malt come in the middle and wanders about into the finish and linger. Drier finish, with a generic bitterness. Fairly thick in feel. Only a very fine carbonation noted, which does little to lighten the feel. A simple, no pretenses, pale ale.
