Today on the second episode of Season 3 of the Bois & Bar Talk podcast, the Drink of the Week is Crucial Mass by Counterweight Brewing. According to Counterweight's website description of Crucial Mass, "Ripened mangos, passionfruit, and a touch of grapefruit dominate the nose, with a subtly sweet malt backbone to support the big explosive hop flavors". It's a popular American IPA, and also one of their most popular drinks to get.
Overall, Rob rated this beer an 8.7 out of 10 which was higher than Kev's rating of 7.1. For an 8% ABV, it is definitely a smooth beer to taste. On this episode we opened up talking about Uber driver stories and a summer get away trip. We quickly transitioned to the new release of only NFL simulation game on the market, Madden 21. EA Sports has been facing a lot of criticism for not making enough changes to the annually released game.
We went to the Microsoft store and started reading all of the Madden reviews from upset gamers. The official user rating was something around 1.7 stars out of 5. The reviews were absurd, bashing the game and the developers without a good review in sight. It was reading these off without trying to laugh. We are both big gamers and football fans if you didn't already know. Of course we like some more quality changes in future Madden games.
