Hitachino Dai Dai Ale
Posted: 24 March 2015  Beer Republic 8.5 
Hitachino Dai Dai Ale from Japan Hitachino opted to go in a more distinguished direction with their Dai Dai Ale. This IPA is brewed with orange peel and not just any orange either. Hitachino uses a rare kind of Japanese orange called a fukure mikan. How's that for originality?    
Avg price/liter: USD 17.85   ABV %: 6.2  Type: IPA   
       


IPA's have become quite popular these days.  Every American craft brewer makes one and now non-American craft brewers have gotten into the act.  Any brewer who wants to his brewery a craft brewery has to offer an IPA.  It's not optional anymore.       

Ten years ago IPA's were relatively rare.  Now IPA's grow on trees.   Yes, there really is an IPA tree.  Feed it hops and barley and it urinates out an IPA.   Get in touch with me and I'll help set you up with the exclusive franchise for your country!     

HItachino could have gone the usual route. Back when Hitachino got into the brewing act in 1996, Japanese, mainstream breweries in Japan would have thought an India Pale Ale was a pale ale with curry powder added to it.  Hitachino opted to go in a more distinguished direction.  This IPA is brewed with orange peel and not just any orange either.  HItachino uses a rare kind of Japanese orange called a fukure mikan.  How's that for originality?        

If you want the usual extra hoppy American style IPA, Hitachino's Dai Dai Ale ain't the direction you should be heading in.  But if you're ready for a Far Eastern taste sensation like you haven't experienced in the past far from the deltas of India, Dai Dai is waiting for you.
