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.

3.5/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

330ml bottle, Good Spirits Co (Glasgow, £2.80):
Golden straw colour with a fomay looking, half cm head that holds pretty well over the opening minutes.

Tarty and sour to begin with, there is some citrus and lemon plus a helping of yeast and a few nondescript, summery fruits. A good smell but not the most complex saison out there.

Orange and apricot notes to begin along with some strongish citrus flavours and a hint of sourness along with the tarty bits from the nose. There is some lighter yeast as well and an assortment of fresh fruits too.

Spicy with some bitterness and a medium body that boasts solid, strong carbonation. There is a few touches of sweetness throughout from the fruits.

A mixed back really and didn't really strike me as a great beer although it was quite enjoyable and relatively easy to drink. The taste was nice but the beer didn't do much to actually grab my attention and seemed pretty average throughout.

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.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

The colour is straw yellow (5 EBC), the liquid is clear. The finger thick white head quickly sinks down to a thin lid.

The smell is yeasty with hints of soap, spices, lime, pineapples, white currant, orange peel and fresh bread.

The taste is loaded with phenolic spices and clean passing bitterness. Lots of mixed fruits: Gooseberries, orange peels, grapefruit, kiwi fruits and some pineapples. Clean hints of soap. Medium to full body. The aftertaste got notes of citric fruits, green bananas and gooseberries. Hints of apricots and smooth bitterness. The finish is clean with mild spices and green fruits.

The carbonation is quite mild, the large bubbles are short-lived. The liquid is smooth and a little thick.

A pleasant and relaxed Belgian IPA/hoppy saison.

Bright brass with a streamer of bubbles up the middle and snow white froth that fades to foam pretty quick.
Flowers, gentle funk, bananas and tangerine peel.
Country white loaf dough and candy sugar sweetness, and mild clove and white pepper hit, then spicy white grape and candied orange fighting it out on the hop front.
Rubbery yeast comeback and lime linger.
Crisp, fizzy, light.

Amarillo and Nelson present and accounted for, I could see the honey, maybe the orange peel, but not the black peppercorns. Not sure why'd you'd spice a saison like a wit, anyway. Overall pretty mild for a mashup - not overly yeasty or hoppy. But round and interesting and easy, so no complaints.

Nice drinker, but not a standout Belgian IPA.
