Today, on the brand new first episode of Bois & Bar Talk Season 4, we are drinking Imperial Sunshine by Blue Point Brewing Co. It feels absolutely fantastic getting back to podcasting right in the beginning of summer.
Imperial Sunshine is a blonde ale brewed with orange and natural flavors out of Patchogue, NY. It pours a light amber color with a slight haze to it. The aroma is similar to an orange peel, and it’s going to have a strong scent!
Overall, we chose Imperial Sunshine because we wanted a summer-style beer. It has a 9.6% ABV which seems kind of high for a blonde ale. Although we can’t believe how the high alcohol content is masked so well. You could easily slug a few of these down on a hot summer down and it could sneak up on you fast! Not to mention, you could most likely find this beer for a bargain – we bought it for $8.99 on sale.
How We Rated Imperial Sunshine
- Rob’s Rating: 7.5/10
- Kev’s Rating: 7.4/10
We kick off the show reminding everyone to check out the website Boisandbartalk.com to check out all of our episode posts. We do show notes and ratings for every beer and every episode.
During Imperial Sunshine, we kicked off the episode doing our typical rating and review of this blonde ale. We followed by doing a quick recap of the last six weeks we took off during the off-season.
Imperial Sunshine mentions that it resembles an orange tic tac. Rob thinks of orange tic tacs as a candy while Kev thought he was kinda crazy. If you got tic tacs as a candy for Halloween as a kid how would it make you feel? Afterwards, Kev talked about his superior swimming ability while Rob admitted to not being buoyant at all.
Lastly, Kev ran through the entire Harry Potter series for the first time during the off season. He gave his reaction and we talked about real-life spells that would be cool to have. Yeah, one of the spells was the ability to crack every egg in the world at once. What would that do to the economy?
