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: 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.

Hmmm. The verbiage promises much, but whilst I can indeed get the orange peel and the saison element that's about it.
It comes across as a sweet n sour saison, with oranges, but not too many hops. No earthiness or barnyard.
And the feel is just sooo watery it's unfunny. At 6.5% it's also a waste.

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.

look: 3 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

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.
