Served On-Tap

A — Pours a slightly hazy and rather vivid light orange color into the Willibecher pint glass. There is a light white layer of foam that sits on top and leaves behind some respectable and consistent lacing.

S — Smell is incredibly fresh, bright, juicy, bitter, forest floor, pine, lemon, sap, sweet, but not overly so, really nice.

T — Much like the nose with notes of semi-sweet lemon curd on top of a piney and bitter base, really fresh, piney, citrusy, and bright.

M — Medium bodied, greatly refreshing.

O — Great beer here, unexpectedly so, would happily order this one again if I ever see it.

Sampled Kama Citra at the original Elysian Brewing location in Seattle on tap out of a standard glass pint.

This brew displays a pumpkin and amber cloudy colored pour with a light tan tiny head. The bubbles were fine and they didn't last very long.

Strong pine forest and grapefruit bouquet. The aroma turned to slightly sweaty armpit or ladies locker room as the beer came up to room temperature. Not foul mens locker room mind you, but a slightly funky ladies locker room scent. Odd but not really offensive.

Big bitter flavor up front with a great acidity but a smooth finish. Excellent hops and a nice blend of toasty malt mixed in that goes down smooth.

A surprisingly good beer that drinks easy despite hitting you with a truly unusual bouquet.

On draft at the Hood River Hops Fest.

appearance - gold and citrusy in appearance, good retention and lacing

smell - beautiful hops, citrus and grapefruit, real organic

taste - mirrored from the smell...very organic citrus and grapefruit hop profile shines through...refreshing and dank

mouthfeel - medium body, well carbonated

overall - this one really shined at the hops fest. i didn't expect to like it but multiple people recommended it so i had to swing through. absolutely worth the taste!
