On the 7th episode of Season 4 on Bois & Bar Talk, we are drinking Sizzling Hippie. Our Drink of the Week comes from Thomas Hooker Brewing Co. out of Bloomfield, CT. Thomas Hooker is a favorite of ours and they deliver lots of consistent beers. Sizzling Hippie doesn’t disappoint either.
Sizzling Hippie is a Nelson Citra IPA with an ABV of 6.4%. The psychedelic can art caught our attention when we were shopping for new beers. It’s available year-round and has white grape and citrus flavors. The color resembles a passion fruit! Overall it’s a juicy delight that comes in a four-pack.
How We Rated Sizzling Hippie
- Rob’s Rating: 7.8/10
- Kev’s Rating: 7.6/10
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.
Here’s how the episode goes down with Sizzling Hippie.
The Ending of Summer
We broke down our pros and cons of the summer vs the fall. Kev enjoys the fall while Rob would rather just live in the summer all the time. Rob argues that daylight cuts down, the sight of dead trees, too many hoody days are dreadful. Kev mentions fall festivities, mixing and matching outfits, and crisp air make for a good fall season.
Talking about our age (27) was a huge talking point on this episode. It was more introspective and we looked deeper into what’s going on in our lives. In the mid-late twenties, people you know are all over the place. Some people move, have families, go back to school, or maybe they are still finding themselves.
With an exposure on social media, we don’t even need a high school reunion to get a glimpse of what everybody else is doing. While it’s a good thing, we discussed the flip side. It’s constant pressure comparing yourself to other people even though we all live our own lives.
The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k
This is a popular book that Rob mentioned that he is reading. While you could easily go on for a whole episode about the book, we covered a page or two. Mark Manson (the author) talks about overthinking simple questions that we ask ourselves. It could be as simple as “How do I apply for this job”?
While we know how to apply to a job, it’s the thought of overthinking it to death! A question like “How do I ask this person out?” might make you freeze on the spot. It’s a simple action, yet the process of thinking about it too hard makes us doubt the whole thing in the first place.
