Ise Kadoya Inazuma IPA Aroma and Taste

Ise Kadoya Inazuma IPA pours out a slightly hazy straw colour with a centimetre of bubbles. So far, so IPA. But whatever you do, don’t stand downwind of this one. I gave it a whiff in the name of journalistic integrity and it smelled foul. It reeks like a pint of diabetic Garfield piss. And nothing else. What the hell. What the actual hell. Who makes hops that smell like this, and for what infernal purpose? Or should I say infurnal purrpose. Oh yes. I went there.

So, much as I am loath to drink a pint of chilled moggy whizz, I’ve paid my money. So here goes. Fortunately Ise Kadoya Inazuma IPA doesn’t taste even a fraction as bad as it smells. Instead, it’s fruity and juicy, with an estery edge to it. It’s quite mild as well, and moderately bitter.

Ise Kadoya Inazuma IPA: The Bottom Line

Not quite the lightning strike the name would suggest. An inoffensive IPA with an obscenely offensive smell. Don’t bother.
