Beer Review by Lafferty Daniel: Hogwild

Watch out for the party hog, he’ll get ya.

Have you ever looked at a pig and thought about beer?  Mostly I think about sweet beautiful bacon just resting on a skillet.  Listening to bacon sizzling on a skillet while being hungover is probably the greatest feeling in the world.  Sorry, I’m losing my train of thought here.  Back to beer, and pigs.  Why pigs?  Well today’s beer is the Hogwild brewed by Aviator Brewing Company on the east coast in North Carolina.  The Hogwild is an Indian Pale Ale and just from looking at the can you can tell this pig definitely likes to party and will probably eat your babies.  But who wouldn’t want to party with a pig who drinks beer?
  • First up for the Hogwild is the color.  The color of the Hogwild is a golden brown color.  This is the run-of-the-muck color of IPAs.  There is no fancy color for this IPA and no distinguishing factor for it yet.  Even though the color is similar to traditional or everyday IPAs, it is still a perty beer to look at.  I’m a sucker for any type of beer that has that golden tint to it.  I’m pretty much their slave.
  • Second up for the Hogwild is the taste, my favorite part.  The taste of the Hogwild is definitely bitter because Aviator uses 100 different types of hops when they brew this beer.  That bitter taste is accompanied by a hoppy flavor as well.  They go hand-in-hand as with any IPA out there.  The Hogwild finishes with a dry, but yet refreshing medium-bodied taste.  That’s the distinguishing factor right there!  Aviator manages to take this bitter beer and allows it to refresh the drinker, as well as not feeling full, at the same time.  This is where the Hog comes out and says “Hey!  Our IPA refreshes ya even on the hottest days of the year.  Drink it pansy!”
  • Third up for the Hogwild is the aroma.  The aroma of the Hogwild is hoppy and floral.  You basically can smell the bitter taste in your nose.  Tasting with your nose!  Their massive amount of hops used in the brew process gives off that floral smell as well.  They combine to create a great smelling beer, just in case you’re into that sort of thing; you know, smelling your beer.
This Hog came to party, but how does it stack up?  Well the color is pretty much the same color as traditional IPAs on the market.  The taste is bitter, slightly more bitter than most IPAs, but it allows the drinker to feel refreshed and not full.  The aroma gives you the sense of how bitter the beer is from the massive amount of hops.  For me, based on these facts, I would rate the Hogwild an 8.  This beer is great. The factor for me that stands out for Aviator is the fact that they can create a refreshing IPA.  Usually beers that are refreshing have a lighter body to them, but with this medium-bodied IPA I still felt refreshed even to the last drop.  The Hogwild has a 6.7 percent alcohol by volume allowing for moderate consumption, but that’s just enough to garner enough courage to walk up to that girl across the bar.  But you might find out the girl is a tree, and in that case you have had the perfect amount of beer.  The taste is great, so go ahead and get this beer and party with this Hog.
Cheers!

Rangers Force Game 7. Washington, We Comin For That Ass.

nyr win

This team just does not give up. Brassy continues his great play with the game winning goal and Hank posts his 7th career playoff shutout. What an exciting game. Think I lost about 7 years off my life with how suspenseful the whole game was but totally worth it. Can’t wait for tomorrow. This fight is not over. Hey, Washington, I didn’t hear no bell. LGR

Flow God of the Week…Playoff Edition: Tyler Bozak

Tyler Bozak

Center for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Don’t know if you’ve been watching the leafs/bruins series, but Bozak’s flow is stealing the god damn show. Leafs may be down 1-3 in the series but with flow as relentless as Bozak’s I just can’t see an early exit. Physically impossible for the Leafs to lose next game. Unless he gets a hair cut. In which case 4-1 Bruins.

Maxim Puts Manti Te’o’s Fake Girlfriend In Hottest 100 List.

Really Maxim? Trying to be topical much? This is the dumbest thing I’ve seen since Mind of Mencia. What editor saw this and gave it the green light? Gotta be a blind monkey with downs right? Only explanation to wasting a spot on Maxim’s top 100 with a floating bikini. And they made her #69 too. Get it! Like, the sex move?! That’s genius! Jesus christ, Maxim. Put your bat down and stop abusing that horse that’s been decaying for quite some time now. We get it. Te’o didn’t have a girfriend. It was funny the first 138,749,756,174,357,287,465 times we heard a fake GF joke. But honestly, if you make a derpy Te’o joke right now best believe I’m gonna roll my eyes so hard I’ll be able to see my cranium. Not to mention putting a fake woman at #69 means you’re implying there are 31 women who are uglier than an invisible woman. A stat like that will obliterate any woman’s self esteem.

So great joke Maxim, glad to know you think #70 Nina Agdal…

was ranked uglier than this…

Maxim Top 100 List

p.s. Miley Cyrus at #1? Is this list a joke and it’s just going over my head? Was the list made by The Onion? Is it April 1st? I seriously don’t understand this at all. My head hurts. I’m going to bed.

This Dog Dancing To Eminem Is The Greatest Youtube Video Of All Time. Period.

I’ve watched this video somewhere around 500 times and I keep coming back for more. This dog is having the absolute time of it’s life. Only thing that could have made this video any better is if it were 10 hours longer. I’m trying to think of a better video in general and I just can’t do it. Dogs FTW

Bro “Accidentally” Shoots His Wife In The Mouth With A Harpoon, Comes Less Than An Inch From Killing Her.

So this dude claims he was cleaning his gun and it happened to fire directly in his wife’s grill. Sure thing, buddy. I feel like too often I see stories of people cleaning their harpoons and accidentally shoot someone in the face. You know what the reasonable number for amount of news stories you should see about accidental harpoon incidents a year? 1. No more, no less. And since there was already a story about the dude who harpooned himself in his head this year this leads me to believe this was no accident. No. What we have here is a classic case of man tries to kill wife with harpoon, misses by a centimeter, says it was an accident. No shot this dude “happened” to shoot his wife perfectly in her head. I may not be the smartest guy, or smart at all for that matter, but I know a failed harpoon cleaning murder attempt when I see one. Your attempt at murder failed, get over it. You may be able to fool some of the mooks on wall street but not this guy! Not Silky Mitts!

Abercrombie and Fitch Not Lookin So Good Telling People They’d Rather Burn Clothing Than Give It To The Homeless.

So an A&F spokesman came out the other day admitting that they would rather burn their faulty clothing than donate to charity. They say poor people wearing their clothes is bad for their image. I want to go on record saying that’s horrible, disgraceful and inhumane. With that said, I completely understand why they’re doing this. This is a business, it’s not a charity organization. If anyone could wear their product, no one would. Personally I don’t wear any of their clothing. Kinda gay. But bottom line is if I see someone wearing A&F clothing I assume they can support themselves financially. If I was walking in NYC and saw a homeless guy sporting a flamboyant, torn A&F shirt I would assume that everyone who’s anyone can score their merch. Which would result in me judging everyone I see wearing their shit. No one wins.

Imagine you’re taking a girl out on a first date. You just had a great dinner and you’re walking out the joint and a guy living on the street who smells like dog shit asks you for spare change and is wearing the exact same shirt as you. Buzz kill city. If you’re stupid enough to think you can get laid after an incident like that I have a bridge to sell you.

p.s. The people that make “snuggie” should donate their robes to the homeless. Hobo’s don’t want to wear stupid Abercrombie shirts with a random date stitched on them. They want to be comfortable while living on the street. Snuggie, get on that.

Mother of the Year Candidate From Long Island Left Her 4 Kids In A Car While She Got Shitfaced At A Bar.

What a fox! Seriously though, not a good look for this mother of the year candidate. Left 4 kids in a car and to make matters worse one of the kids is autistic. Yikes. She didn’t just leave them in the car for a second to run in a 7-11 to grab a soda either. Fatso here was on a mission to get stupid drunk and if that means ditching her offspring for a couple hours, so be it.

Gotta be honest though, love this woman’s hustle. Having 4 kids will not stop this woman from ripping shots in the middle of the day. Oh I have to watch our 4 kids all day? Tough shit, I’m getting shitfaced. They’re not old enough to drink so they had to chill in the car. Kind of makes an extreme amount of sense if you think about it. They could have been unsupervised at home all day where there’s knives and faulty outlets everywhere. This woman just lookin out for her kids. She may even deserve a medal of some sort.

p.s. If I was a cop you could not pay me enough money to arrest this woman at the bar. She looks like the type of broad that would knock you the fuck out if you took her drink away from her. Mother with 4 kids, day drinking, hasn’t showered in days. I know better than to fuck with that person.

Can The New York Rangers Still Win This Series?

I…I just don’t know anymore. If they can figure out how to fucking score, maybe they’ll win. Maybe. With the exception of Lundqvist, the Rangers have been playing like shit. Scored 1 goal in 6 periods (off a caps skate) and didn’t register a shot in the last 17 minutes  of game 2. Not one shot! They scored 51 goals in their last 14 regular season games…what the fuck happened? I seriously don’t know if this team can win. Their only hope is the garden faithful helps them out for the home games. They got a couple chances last game but when you have Nash, Richards, Stepan and Callahan and score 1 goal in 6 periods it’s unacceptable. I don’t know what it is about Caps/Rangers games but I feel like both teams have trouble scoring when they play each other in the playoffs. Nash needs to start scoring, Asham needs to start fighting and Lundqvist needs to keep dominating. I really hope they come out strong and make a statement for the rest of the series but with the way they’re playing it’s tough to see a second round that involves the New York Rangers. Being down 2-1 is not bad at all. Being down 3-0 would suck balls.

With that said I got Rangers in 7. LGR
