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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

BB 7/15
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.
