Style: Belgian IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Rotating

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.

Reviewing the 2015 5.2% version of the beer, which is, apparently, different from the older versions.

The pour is hazy yellow with a very tall head (tripel-style) with decent retention. The smell is dominated by flower and citrus notes, along with kneaded dough and the characteristic smell of Belgian yeast. The taste is exactly what was advertised, a hoppy saison. Notes of citrus and tropical fruits do well to complement the honey, spicy and bitter notes of the saison. Light body with medium carbonation. Bitter-sweet aftertaste.

[This entry is for the 2015 5.2% release of Electric India. -- "Re-brewed as a spring seasonal, this beer – which appeared originally as an Equity Punk shareholder creation – retains its trademark spicy, fruity edge. A perfect blend of Belgian saison and US IPA, crushed peppercorns and heather honey are also added to give a genuinely unique beer."

From a bottle in Edinburgh.

Fairly strong floral and fruity aroma.
Hard style to get right but BrewDog nails this. Very drinkable. Minimal funk is mostly evident only in the aroma.
Seems to have some teaberry flavor! (probably due in part to having peppercorns in the ingredients, and in part to the yeast).

Poured into pint glass, looks very clear with moderate carbonation and quickly dissipating head. Smells very pleasant, orange peels are immediate, followed by all sorts of fruits: mango, pineapple passion fruit with a sweet malty background. Hops are only in the background. The fruitiness is also very present on the palate with a dry finish. Moderate carbonation and a medium body. Nice.

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
