Animal Instinct is a brett (wild fermentation) Trois India Pale Ale brewed by Tanker Brewery (Estonia) in collaboration with Van Moll (NL). Take a walk on the wild side with Animal Instinct. It is a juicy IPA fermented with 100% wild Bruxellensis Trois yeast, the first IPA of its kind made in Estonia. Aroma is massively juicy, loads of fruits, ripe and tropical – tangerines, pineapple, mango. Tastes as good – moderately bitter, super-juicy, slight wheatiness, lots of fruity brett, and tropical fruity hops. Great drinkability.
India Pale Ale style’s origin is connected to England’s colonisation. At the time, beer produced in England was shipped to various colonies (including India) aboard sailing ships. Travel time and conditions (heavy sun, humidity) were a huge problem for beer quality. Using more hops as a conservative was the solution for shipping beer to colonies. This new style became quickly very popular in India and then in Europe.
