On the 10th episode of the Bois & Bar Talk podcast in Season 4, the Drink of the Week is Baby Kittens by Fat Orange Cats Brew Co. It’s a regular IPA with a pale yellow color. It has a tiny amount of bitterness at the first sip followed by hints of passionfruit and citrus. Baby Kittens is a really solid IPA with a mild undertone of spicy hops. This IPA also sports a lime green can loaded with drawings of kittens of all different shades of orange.
It’s a fantastic choice for an IPA that deserves at least an 8 out of 10. We pointed out that in Connecticut, you have lots of great IPAs that fall into this range. It’s more on the simple side, but at the same time it’s a pleasant beer to have. We would definitely buy it again.
How We Rated Baby Kittens
- Rob’s Rating: 8.2/10
- Kev’s Rating: 8.0/10
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 Baby Kittens.
American Culture Destinations
You’ll always hear us talk about what it means to live in Connecticut. A main advantage that we have is having the opportunity to travel to New York which is famous worldwide. We talked about what Miami is like (especially for breweries). The breweries down in Miami infuse Latino culture within their beer and events which is something uncommon for Connecticut.
We also mentioned going down South because you get elements of culture that you can’t get up here. In particular, BBQ food down in Texas or the famous partying in New Orleans.
Think about how we know what staples of culture are in the U.S. without even visiting there. Wisconsin is known for cheese but we don’t know anything else about it.
Just a quick thought, did you ever notice how squirrels freeze and observe at times? Squirrels actually communicate and sense danger with their tails. They also wag their tail to alert other squirrels of any danger nearby.
What Had the Bigger Fall Off? Milk or Blockbuster Video?
How did we get to this question? We don’t know either. We talked about milk in households over time. Milk was in food pyramids for kids and recommended in regular diets. Now milk has taken a downturn because of HGH and overall just not being good for you.
Blockbuster on the other hand, also got crushed by Netflix back in the day. Blockbuster was in nearly every town! People rented movies and games in-store and that’s how it was. Netflix started with their mail in service complimented with a digital streaming service.
On a side note, Netflix also made cable TV take a hit. A big problem with cable is obviously the price. But also we don’t need hundreds of channels with random shows playing for us. Not to mention, cable shows us irrelevant ads that don’t keep our attention.
