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.

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.

argo0 (11535) - 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.

Leighton (10985) - 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.

Tmoney99 (10660) - 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.

hopscotch (9162) - 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!

JoeMcPhee (8410) - 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

50 cl bottle at a tasting on October 30, 2013 (backlog). Thanks to Ingo!
Marked Nikenjayamochi Kadoya Honten Pale Ale at 5%.
Clear golden color, small white head. Sweet, acidic, sour, Brettanomyces scent. Thin, Brettanomyces, weird bitter taste. Astringent, bitter, husky, high attenuated aftertaste. Thin mouthfeel, high strange bitterness.
Unpleasant.
