Ise Kadoya Wild Boy’s IPA Aroma and Taste
Ise Kadoya Wild Boy’s IPA came up a copper orange colour with a slightly off-white head that faded fast – just like how I like my pints. It had a dank resinous aroma with hints of grapefruit and some melon too. The malts produced a slight caramel aroma too.
The bitterness in Ise Kadoya Wild Boy’s IPA lasts from start to finish – it’s not abrasive by any means but it does linger throughout all the flavours of pine, mango, grapefruit, and some caramel too. However, all the flavours are balanced well, with not anyone of them standing out over the others. Ise Kadoya Wild Boy’s IPA finished off with a quick tropical fruits flourish, with some lingering bitterness. Then the second came along…
