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 a slightly cloudy pale golden, straw coloration with a medium, foamy head. Smells of light biscuity malt and strong citrus aromas of lime peel, tangerine and grapefruit, some white grape and just a hint of grass and hay. Taste is quite hop-forward, being dominated by citrus notes of lime peel, tangerine, grapefruit and white grape, with some lighter biscuity malt and hints of spicy and slightly fruity yeast esters, with black pepper standing out the most and just a touch of tart green apple/pear. Finishes mildly tart, with a light bitterness and some citrus and white grape notes lingering in the aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel with a medium body and carbonation.

This actually works quite well for what it is, which is a hoppy Belgian IPA with a mild Saison character. The hops are definitely in the foreground here, but at least the beer is not pretentious about it and there are just enough malty, and slightly tart and estery notes to keep things interesting.

Bottle. Cloudy straw. Quite a thick frothy head. Looks the part.
Lemony aroma. Some yeast. Smells a bit sour.
Rather light on flavour. Reflects the bouquet with some honey and spice. Some dryness apparent.
Highly carbonated and rather stinging on my tongue.

Bottled in a bigger 660ml but only 5.2%
Pours a lemon jelly coloured body with big foaming white head that pretty much stays
Sorry but aroma is cheap lager and white pepper
Fruity hops at the front then taffy flavour
Interesting but not convinced

From a 330ml bottle. 5.2% ABV.
L: Cloudy, dark yellow colour with a massive, open, foaming head. Reasonable retention and some lacing. Streams of bubbles chase up the side of the glass.
S: Lots of yeasty, spicy, citrus notes. Smells sharp and clean.
T: Lemon, honey, spicy Belgian yeast.
F: light body with generous carbonation. Light, dry finish. Hint of sweetness.
O: Very, very smooth. Will be a great summer beer. Much more a Belgian pale ale than a "hoppy saison". The hops are definitely there but they're not as prominent as the marketing blurb implies.
