Notes/Commercial Description:
One day. One brewery. Seven thousand co-creators. Two hundred brewers. The result? Electric India. This beer is the bastard love child of the craft beer revolution.

An unholy union between a Belgian Saison and an India Pale Ale; democratically brewed by our very own Equity for Punks shareholders.

Electric India is a hoppy saison brewed with fresh orange peel, lashings of heather honey, crushed black pepper corns and enthusiastically hopped with mountains of Amarillo and Nelson Sauvin.

A beer for the people, by the people direct from the craft beer republic of BrewDog.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pours with almost no head, just a tiny sticky lacing. Golden orange.
Fruity hops are big in the smell, also vanilla, honey, sweet citrus.
Taste is really fruity, with lots of sweet citrus (tangerine, lime, lots of orange peel, grapefruit), some exotic pineapple, a bit of sour cherries, apricots and banana. Pale malts, but nice sweet honey, with floral notes too. Spicy with some clove, vanilla, prickly peppercorn. Big herbal finish, as expected from the hops, spicy and bitter. There are hints of green grass and hay, but the barnyard funkiness of a saison is lacking.
Almost flat body, with a low fizz helping the pepper pinch. Somewhat buttery, smooth, a bit too oily maybe.
The yeasty feel gets the "Belgian" part right, the hops are typical BrewDog, but not a "saison". Tasty.

Pours a pale straw color, clear, and wit ha very small and quickly disappearing white head.
There are citrusy hops in the aroma, slightly sweet as well.
The taste is initially slightly sweet, but immediately a hard bitter taste kicks in. A very strong tasting beer, but still drinkable.

This beer had such an interesting flavor that, to me, was so much like something from my childhood, that I had to tell the world what flavor I got... Liquified Flintstones Vitamins. There was a touch of fruity hops, too. But I could barely stomach it. The visual of drinking a lot of vitamins was too much for me.
