We discuss the autumn 2017 anime season as other things pop into our brains. Apologies as my mic is amazingly quiet for almost the entire podcast despite me being so close to it, I could have eaten it at any point.
As usual, the podcast contains NSFW content and as such, should not listened to be listened to by most people. There is a audio skip around the 43 minute mark, it’s not a dodgy edit, it’s in the original recording.

Here we are, the last day before Christmas and the final beer. The last beet is Beerfoot from Amundsen Bryggeri. A grapefruit saison at 4%, which is designed to invoke summer.
Living up to its style, you can smell and taste the grapefruit. There is a pleasant tang to it as well. Quite the quaffable one, this is.
With that, another year is finished. At least there wasn’t a tragic beer this run. A big thank you to everyone that visited the site and have a merry Christmas. If you don’t celebrate Christmas, have a nice couple of days!
This evening’s beer is Hobo Chic by the Dry & Bitter Brewing Company. A double India Pale Ale at a hefty 8%. Though in the description on the bottle, they call it an imperial IPA. This also uses two of the same hops that yesterday’s Thirsty Frontier (citra and simcoe) but to a very different effect.
When I first poured this beer, the smell was an extremely sweet pineapple smell. Now it’s been open for a little while, this has almost completely died away. That initial sweet smell made me think this would be light and fruity. The taste is actually very tart and sour hoppiness and hangs around for a while. It also has a chalky quality I’m not fond of. If you hold it up to the light, there is also a lot of sediment floating around (this can also be seen in the picture above). It’s not a bad beer, though I’m not sure if I would choose it again. I think some of it comes down to being fooled by the initial sweet smell (insert your favourite trap meme below).
A non bland session beer? That sound’s good to me. Here we have Endless Summer by the Black Iris Brewery. A session IPA at 4.5%.
The first taste really reminded me of a lighter version of Punk IPA, but that has quickly changed. There is light floral hints to the smell. The taste is difficult for me to pick out, but its both sharp and sour without being a distraction. As I get further into this, there is a hint of fruity/citrus. This is one I would be interested in trying in a session to see if the flavour alters any more.
I was hopeful for this one as the clerk in the shop explained when they got the delivery he instantly bought six cans.
TROPICAL STOUT! Add in some nice artwork on the can and you got me. Tonight’s beer is Cloudwater’s Tropical Stout at an impressive 8%.
After all the beers I had earlier that had a citrus smell to them, I was expecting the same from this one. Nope, it smells malty. It tastes like a stout and still no hint of the tropical namesake. Though for a stout, it is quite a clean drink with a pleasant aftertaste (assuming you like stouts).
