Pours black with a small fading tan head. Smells strongly of the mentioned Indian spices: curry, cayenne, and cumin. Taste is spicy, coconut, line, and cayenne. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Ballast Point Indra Kunindra finishes with a lingering cayenne heat.

Bottled at SBWF. Near black, no head. Smells like walking into an Indian spice market, or like a fresh bowl of Hyderabadi Biryani. Sweet with medium-full body and clean mouthfeel. The curry flavour dominate completely, and the curry heat is much more prominent than in proper Indian food. Interesting idea, but out of balance. The clean, hard malt structure is also a drawback.

Bottle:   Yellow curry, spices, you know the way, it twists and turns, spinning yarns, you know they way it leaves you dry, it cuts you up, and takes you high.   You know the way, its painted gold, is it honey, is it cold?   You know the way, it throws about, it takes you in and spits you out.   This is a spicy meal, very unique and tasty.   Spicy on the tongue, lots of curry, coconut, caynne pepper, and lime leaf.   This is very much an Indian dish.   I am not sure if I am drinking a beer, or sipping the left overs of some Indian dish.   This one is very unique, spicy, rich, with a bit of heat.   Big spiciness, rich flavor profile, Indian all the way.   Probably one of the most unique beers I have had in a long ass time.   Spicy, some heat, curry, and just like a damn rich and clean Indian dish.   Friggen tasty!   Whats funny is that unlike most beers that make me thirsty, this one makes me very hungry.   Bring on the Thai food!!!

Snifter on tap at Lucky’s. Black color. Good thin brown head. Holy cow! This is one of the most interesting beers I’ve ever sipped. Such a big curry spice flavor, sort of peppery, actually works very well. Much more curry spice flavors than stout, but some chocolate and roast malts in the finish. Very spicy flavor overall. Kind of a spicy, black peppery heat in the finish. Moderate bitter, not much sweet. Bigger body. Smooth, sort of crisp lighter carbonation, more dry finish. Good chewiness to the texture. Mostly loose lace, not much really sticks. Huge curry in the nose, so interesting and unusual, very unique. Dark chocolate and coffee comes out more as it warms up. Eventually, head fades entirely. Very glad for the chance to try this, so interesting, and pretty tasty.

On tap at Tap in Petaluma. Pours a dark black color without much head. Sharp chili taste that burns on afterwards and noticeable curry. Very tasty.

Draft to taster. Looks good; cola with foamy beige head. Smells of curry, coconut, and spice. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. An interesting beer, but once is enough, and definitely not something I’d drink much of.
