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.

330ml bottle from Vinmonopolet. Small white head. Dark golden/yellow hazy body. Aroma of dark fruits, alcohol and caramel malt. Some spicy hop bitterness. Slightly bitter in the mouth at first, then finishes off with a round aftertaste dominated by prunes.

Backlog. Very spice and cinnamon clove forward nose. Malt and bready like flavors come out as it warms. More spice on the finish. Feels too heavy for my kind of saison.

A nice looking beer, a bit hazy and and golden. Aromas of bread, citrus, some yeast. Taste is also citrus, a bit of spice. Somewhat bitter finish.

M_Sack (623) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2016
Bottle. Gold, frothy white head and spotty lacing. Pepper and citrus peel dominate the aroma along with citrus hop. Initial hop bitterness, pepper, Belgian yeast, sweet honey backbone abc gentle bitterness to finish. I'm no hop freak, but it needed more bittering hops to clean up the sweetness from the honey. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Barwa złocista, lekko zmętniona. Piana raczej mizerna, średnio pęcherzykowa, dość szybko dziurawiąca się. Aromat odrobinę chmielowy, dużo belgijskich drożdży, trochę przypraw. W smaku owocowe, średnio słodkie, przyprawowe. Wysycenie w stronę wysokiego, bardziej wytrawne niż półpełne, goryczka średnie dość długa z grejpfrutowo przyprawowym finiszem.

Scrumpy369 (504) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 24, 2015
Bottle at csak a jo sor. Hazy yellow colour with a small white head that almost instanly diaapperas. Nose of dough and yeast. After a few minutes some tangerine appears. Taste is mild sweetness with some hop. Expected more hoppiness...

pityu (681) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 26, 2015
Bottle - Hazy golden colour, medium white head, fair retention. Sweet malty aromas of bread, biscuits, and a yeasty, sourish scent with some fruity hops. Taste of biscuits, some honey, yeasty notes, some sour sidetaste, medium spicy hop bitterness. Light to medium body, lively carbonation, dry and sour finish. Refreshing, enjoyable, but not my style.

corkyrory66 (1422) - BELGIUM - OCT 25, 2015
Hoppy saison, pour le brasseur, à savoir une fusion entre une saison belge et une ipa. En ingrédients complémentaires : des écorces d’orange, du miel de bruyère, du poivre noir écrasé. En houblons : Amarillo et Nelson Sauvin à profusion. Niveau abv de 6,5 % Mon exemplaire avait dépassé sa date de 3 mois. Couleur doré moyen brillant, à la clarté nette. Bulles fines en colonnes droites, encore assez nombreuses pour l’âge. Mousse blanche épaisse, nappage fin à 2 m. Arômes de malt clair, fruits blancs, leurs de houblon, pointe d’amandes. 1ère bouche soyeuse et structurée, sur du malt grillé, agrumes, fruit de la passion. Arrière-bouche dense mais précise, complexe, longue. 2ème avec malt clair, zeste d’orange, pamplemousse rose. Arrière-bouche très équilibrée, superbe. 3ème qui est une pure merveille malt/houblon. Arrière-bouche incisive, complexe. Longueur savante, équilibrée, précise, ample, savoureuse. Jambes fines, bien marquées. Levure belle, fine, élégante, grande ligne. Alcool tout à fait apte à soutenir toutes les saveurs de ce breuvage. Finale magique. CONCLUSION : une réalisation de maestria. Une gageure en soi, qui s’est transformée en un essai concluant. Grande maîtrise.

Quite hoppy saison with a good alcohol level. Not bad at all in line with brew dogs tradition!

Pale yellow color slightly hazed white head. Aroma of orange and spices, fruit, white grapes with A trail of american hops. Sweet taste. Dryish spicy finish. Strange mixture.
