Prancing Pony Double Zeppelin x The Offspring - Change The World

 

DOUBLE NEIPA ON THE HOMBRE
 
The next pick is from a punk rock favourite, with a tasty Double NEIPA from a brilliant Adelaide brewery.
 
The album pick is the fourth studio album by American rock band the Offspring. The title combines Pig Latin ("Ixnay" is the version of the word "nix", familiar in 1940s Hollywood movies) and Spanish ("hombre", "man") to convey the message "f*ck The Man", as in "f*ck authority".
 
The success of their previous album “Smash” allowed them more studio time to make the album. Guitarist Noodles mentioned that “"We did Smash on no budget at all and were constantly calling our studio to find out when it was empty just so we could sneak in at a discount price." "Change the World" is a further development of the unnamed hidden track that appeared at the end of the previous album Smash (in which the guitar riff follows the same melody as the lead guitar in "Genocide"). "Change the World" itself contains a hidden track, a brief spoken piece by Larry "Bud" Melman of the David Letterman Show.
 
There is definitely a better sound on this album,and whilst it didn’t do well as “Smash”, the album is still a good one, with the track “Gone Away” really standing out as one of their best songs.  The Offspring toured relentlessly for almost a year to promote Ixnay on the Hombre. Prior to its release, they headlined the Big Day Out tour in Australia in January–February 1997, along with Soundgarden and The Prodigy.
 
Now the beer hits your taste buds in a brilliant way; just like the album hits your ear drums in the right way. The “Double Zeppelin” from Prancing Pony, can be best described as a strange beer, but strange in an absolutely brillian way. The beer is soft, juicy with a slight bitterness, a slight sourness and fruity. That’s a lot for a brew, and yet is all works so well. The beer is easy drinking surprisingly; with the citrus flavours from the hops on full show; just like the riff at the start of Amazed, which as far as riffs go is really good.
