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.

omhper (21759) - 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 (5124) - 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.

abemorsten (3289) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2009
Starting off at Popeye’s Nippon craft beer hand pumps. Nice fruity flavor, flowery caramel, hardly any head, low carbonic acid. A descent beer

TheJollyOne (230) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 13, 2009
Hand pump at Popeyes. Amber body with small head. Fruity hop nose, flowers. Taste was malty and vinously floral, some faint spices. Slightly sharp palate, a bit agressive perhaps. A good beer to break it up with, nothing defining.

jonno (2345) - JAPAN - MAR 29, 2009
A good sloid APA. Real ale version at Popeyes. Poured with no head. Orange, amber hue. Malty on the tongue, accented by a hoppy finish, although defintely not over powering. Easy to knock back, though nothing to really write home about. Good starter.

Juancho (239) - Georgia, USA - MAR 23, 2009
On Draught at Popeye. Nice citrus and dark fruit aroma, looks deep golden with an amber backbone. An easy thirst quencher with a great hoppy finish. It’s understated but has everything in balance.

KyotoLefty (7972) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 31, 2008
Draught at Qbrick. Great fruit and hop nose, with grapes or cherries and citrus. Light and crisp, good light malts to balance. Very enjoyable.

jerohen (2077) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2008
On draft at Popeye, Tokio, Japan. Clear orange-golden appearance, no head. Faint nose, some hops. Initially fruity flavour (orange), which later on develops to be more bitter. Lasting bitter finish.

mmather (145) - Colorado, USA - APR 24, 2008
from a 500ml bottle. nice straw to amber color, good head. Nice orangey, citrusy aroma. Hops and malt blend well together to make a nicely drinkable beer that would stand up to most American versions. Hops are a bit one dimensional though.
