On the 11th episode of the Bois & Bar Talk podcast in Season 4, our Drink of the Week is Double Hop Hop by Aeronaut Brewing Co. If you couldn’t guess from the title, this beer is a double IPA with an ABV of 8.4%. Double Hop Hop features hazy citrus and mosaic hops out of Somerville, MA. It’s also described as having flavors of cold-extracted hops steeped in Aeronaut’s whirlpool following vigorous fermentation.
Double Hop Hop is a wonderfully balanced beer with tropical flavor. As expected with any double IPA, we tasted to see just how well the high ABV is masked behind the fruitiness. This is our first go with Aeronaut Brewing, and it certainly did not disappoint. Definitely an addicting taste to it that we both agreed that we can stock up on. An absolute killer beer to have! Here’s how we rated it.
How We Rated Double Hop Hop
- Rob’s Rating: 8.8/10
- Kev’s Rating: 8.6/10
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 Double Hop Hop.
What to Expect This Fall
How could we describe what the first week of Fall means? Seeing people jog while you drive on a crisp morning. Seeing mist or even frost on your car with the heat on. Followed by putting the AC on by the middle of the day. Layering up your wardrobe, yet layering down as the day goes on. We both enjoy the amount of ways you can dress in Fall weather. Fairs, ciders, pumpkin stuff, and all the goods! Oh, back to the people jogging on the side of the road part. How can you not just silently root for those people hustling out there while you drive!
Adjusting your Routine
Mainly on Kev’s side as he lands a new career. How do you set your routine throughout the day? When you have a career, how do you keep that work-life balance? Especially when it comes to staying active exercising and keeping up with your passions and hobbies (aka podcasting!).
Have you ever tried a solo date before? Whether it would be taking yourself out to eat or a shopping trip. It could be anything, but it’s a fun way just to unwind for a bit. It’s also a bit of a challenge if you haven’t done it before. One thing about solo dates though, is that you might be more observant of what’s going on around you.
