Instinct Of Survival IPA

The Beer

Instinct Of Survival is the 4th beer I have brewed since I got up and running on the new kit, and the first I brewed while the world descended into chaos due to the Covid-19 virus.

The Inspiration

As I sat alone, wondering WTH was going on with the world, what should I do with the brewery during this time and, like most, a million other questions, I decided to brew. It's always been my solace, my happy place. I knew for one thing I needed to do something to ensure the business I'd just started, and intended to become my livelihood, survived these troubled times.

The beer was brewed with a big oat content in the malt bill, lots of Ekuanot and Citra hops and used Vermont yeast to add further tropical, citrus esters to the finished beer. We've ended up with a very juicy, full bodied, tropical hit of a beer.

As far as the name goes, Napalm Death's Instinct Of Survival seemed a very fitting title and tune under the circumstances.
