3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fruity brown IPA with amazing appearance and body, but a somewhat tempered nose. There could definitely be more going on here in a bottle of certain freshness, I cannot say for sure how old this bottle is but it’s probably close to a year old. The flavors are still quite solid though, I definitely get a melon/cantaloupe quality amidst the sort of general "brownness" of the malts. A little too bitter in the finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
In short: A somewhat fruity-hoppy dark roasted beer of some kind. Decent.
How: Bottle 500ml, consumed a few weeks after purchase after its long boat ride to North-America.
The look: Muddy brown body topped by a persistent small tan head.
In long: Nose is rich dark malts and moderately hoppy blending tropical fruits and nutty brownies. In mouth the beer feels rich, a creamy texture, a generous carbonation. Taste is creamy fudge, chocolaty and nutty, a certain roasted wood sensation, somewhat hoppy adding refreshing fruity flavors. More roasted than the average Brown Ale. Dry finish. A fun no-style bastard beer. Seems like Beer Here has two (or more) hoppy brown ales in their lineup, this Kama Citra was good but I much preferred their other hoppy brown ale Autumnic Fallout. Before craftbeer I used to exercise to make me feel good, but now I drink craftbeer and it makes me feel good AND funny AND intelligent AND sexy.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to Blake for bringing the bottle. Poured medium-deep brown with a toasted marshmallow head. The aroma picked up sweet toasted coffee, nutty notes, and molasses with light citrus/piney hoppage around. The flavor found mostly nutty notes and molasses with bitter grapefruit and grassy bitterness around.. finished dry and toasty, with quite a bit of residual bitterness. Medium-bodied with low-moderate carbonation.. wouldn’t liked a little more bitterness, but it was aiight.

Pours to a deep brown mahogany body with a creamy tan head. The beer is a hoppy grapefruit and deep toasty caramelized malts. Very much a brown ale with lots of citra hops. Medium full body. Robust.
