COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This entry is for the original release of Electric India, at 7.2%, and the wider re-release at 6.5%.
For the 2015 new-label version, enter as Electric India 5.2%

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.

Cerveja saison, mais lupulada e muito saborosa. Sabor caramelado e com malte suave. O amargor mais marcante da uma bela diferença das demais do estilo ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dzhigga (227) - Kirov, RUSSIA - JUL 1, 2015
Bottle. Clear golden color with medium head. Aroma is heavy citric: lemon peel, light saison notes, something tropical. Taste is sweet, light-bodied but complex: you can feel that there were a lot of components. Finish is medium, lightly bitter. Interesting experiment: saison + IPA.

Achel (140) - GREECE - JUN 22, 2015
pours a cloudy orange beer under a little white foam; nice lace; very citric aroma, grapefruit and mandarins; fizzy and medium- to full-bodied, lively palate, decently sourish and quite dry; long grapefruity and tangerines-like hoppy finish

Moebbels (458) - FINLAND - JUN 18, 2015
Tried on 13.6. at Bier-Bier saison tasting in Helsinki. A mildly hazy yellow body with a large white head. Nose has an unpleasant funky aroma. Taste is dry and fruitily bitter with a dry finish. Strong carbonation and medium palate. The taste is ok, a bit simple but the aromas were actually not so good.

TimE (4066) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 8, 2015
Golden color, frothy white head. Hoppy dry funky nose. Nice dry hoppy mouth, a bit too hoppy finish. Definitely a big hoppy Saison, which I love.

Fisler (188) - 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 (8391) - 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.

Hop_Hedonist (313) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 14, 2015
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.
