Ise Kadoya should be renamed IPA Kadoya with the amount of IPAs they’ve been making recently. Ise Kadoya Yuzunoka NEIPA is the latest addition to their NE IPA range, with Ise Kadoya Neko Nihiki by Ise Kadoya proving to be such a hit that more followed. Ise Kadoya Yuzunoka NEIPA poured out a hazy orange colour with a plump white head on top that clung to the side of the glass. NE IPAs often use the word “juicy” to describe themselves, and Ise Kadoya Yuzunoka NEIPA is no exception. But this time, it’s valid. Ise Kadoya Yuzunoka NEIPA reeked of peaches, pineapples, mango, passion fruit, and of course yuzu. So much going on but so balanced. There was a slight sweetness from the malts but Ise Kadoya Yuzunoka NEIPA smelt delicious because of the hops.

If you’ve been reading BeerTengoku for a while – be it here, on Twitter, on Facebook, etc – you probably know that NE IPA are one of my least liked styles of beer. Ise Kadoya Yuzunoka NEIPA proved me wrong. This bottle was fresh from the brewery and it showed. Ise Kadoya Yuzunoka NEIPA was delicious. Those fruity flavours in the nose are present in the body, with lashings of peaches, pineapples, mango, passion fruit coming through the slight tart yuzu flavours. At 8%, I expected some alcohol heat, but got none. All I got was a lingering fruity juiciness that has convinced me that NE IPA beers are good. Well, some of them are.

Ise Kadoya Yuzunoka NEIPA The Bottom Line

Look, if Ise Kadoya Yuzunoka NEIPA can convince me that there is even one single delicious NE IPA out there, then you should definitely try it too.
