Ise Kadoya Oni No Inumani IPA is a 7% American IPA from Ise Kadoya, based in Mie, Japan. It’s part of Ise Kadoya’s 20th anniversary limited edition range and can be found in both bottles and on tap across Japan. Like many of their other beers released in 2017, Ise Kadoya Oni No Inumani IPA is a collaborative effort, this time with Oni Densetsu Brewery, from Hokkaido, and Shirayama Brewery, from Kagoshima. Why these? Apparently all three breweries use the same brewing machinery from Canada. Ise Kadoya Oni No Inumani IPA brewed with Galaxy, Mosaic, Simcoe, and Vic Secret hops.
Ise Kadoya Oni No Inumani IPA Aroma and Taste
Ise Kadoya have really been doing well in their 20th year as a brewery, with lots of collaborative brewing sessions with both Japanese and Foreign breweries. I was excited to see this one come out as Oni Densetsu make some solid IPAs on tap and I’m yet to try anything from Shiroyama Brewery.
Ise Kadoya Oni No Inumani IPA poured out a hazy amber with a layer of fine bubbles on top, which popped quite quickly to leave a much thinner layer. The aroma was a dank piney resinous aroma with hints of caramel bursting through, along with some oranges and citrus following through. While the dank piney aroma was the most potent, it wasn’t so much so that the others were too masked by it.
However, drinking Ise Kadoya Oni No Inumani IPA is where it all got so much better. The bitterness is balanced nicely with the dank piney flavours that come rushing through with the caramel. If you’ve tried Modern Times Blazing World (one of my favourite beers of all-time) then you’d like Ise Kadoya Oni No Inumani IPA – it’s almost as if the brewers have gone for a Japanese version of it with the hops also being very similar. Ise Kadoya Oni No Inumani IPA is incredibly drinkable. It finished off with a bitter dank caramel flourish and left me wanting more – – I ended up having three of them in one drinking session which is rare for me.
Ise Kadoya Oni No Inumani IPA The Bottom Line
Just go out and buy Ise Kadoya Oni No Inumani IPA – it’s great. It’s more of a cross between an amber ale and IPA.
