Ise Kadoya Heavy Jack IPA Aroma and Taste

Yet again my beer pours out with a minute head. Is it that Growlerwerks glass??  Ise Kadoya Heavy Jack IPA’s nose is mainly hoppy, with resiny, fruity and tropical notes.

The taste is mainly more of the same- not that that’s a bad thing. There are multiple hop flavours going on in this beer. Resiny, piney hops,  juicy guava hops, and even a bitter woody flavour.

There’s also a slightly sweet caramel flavour which nicely offsets the hop onslaught and gives it a smooth edge. It’s not exactly gentle, but the hop bitterness is not too overpowering as a result and there’s no harshness.

Ise Kadoya Heavy Jack IPA: The Bottom Line

Despite its name, Ise Kadoya Heavy Jack IPA isn’t as full on is you would think. It’s generously hopped but I wouldn’t call it a monster IPA. Nicely balanced.
