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.

Fisler (160) - GERMANY - MAY 21, 2015
Rotgold im Glas, in der Nase reife Früchte, Apfel, Trauben. Im Trunk vollmundig, leichte Süße, wieder Apfel, dann malzig bitter. Etwas unrunde Übergänge, dafür schön fruchtig-komplex. Der Alkohol passiert nur im Hintergrung. Nett.

JorisPPattyn (8344) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 17, 2015
Good, lightly yellowish head, over lightly carbonated clear metallic golden beer. Spicy, herbal nose, some yeast aromas, grass - and honey? Bitter -hoppy , and again herbal in the mouth. Garden herbs/weeds; dry. Bit of heat in the finish. Light to medium carbonation by MF; light body, slighlty slick. Quite decent.

Orange beer, white head, clear. Aroma of hops (citrus, hint of resin), fermented honey, a little bit of pepper. Taste: light sweetnes, med to high bitternes. Flavors of citrus and fermented honey mostly. Light-med body, med saturation. Overall: expected more.

I’m not a fan of IPA/saison hybrids - but this is reasonably pleasant - doesn’t rock my world though - sour and herbal doesn’t float my boat although this is better than most. One enough for me.

Draught at Brewdog Roppongi. Citrus/pine hops, caramel, apricot, earthy pepper, funky finish. Interesting blend but not a great balance though.

Shared bottle. Clear golden with small white head. Aroma of malts, honey, elderberry, fruity, citrusy, herbal and grassy, spicy, but natural and fresh. Medium sweet, light bitter with some acidic notes, fruity, grassy, buttery. Medium body, thick texture, soft carbonation. Fresh, well ballanced.

Zlotta (253) - Bonn, GERMANY - APR 26, 2015
0,33 l bottle from EDEKA Mohr, 6.5% abv, batch #241, best before 17/7/2015. Clear, pale golden yellow with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, white head. Pleasant, fruity-spicy aroma of orange peel, lemon zest, gooseberry, tangerine, peach, apricot and honey. Sweetish, fruity-spicy taste of orange peel, lemon zest, honey, gooseberry and apricot, followed by a medium long, slightly bitter and minimally tart finish. Medium body, slightly creamy and tart mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very nice beer, maybe a bit too old to reveal its intended hop character. It still has lots of aroma and flavour, making it highly refreshing. Good!
