When it comes to favourite Run The Jewels tracks, I’d have to say mine is Lie, Cheat, Steal. Sure, Close Your Eyes (And Count To Fuck) is the undeniable banger that still gets dropped late at night for the poor souls still at a party where I've managed to secure an AUX cord, but Lie, Cheat, Steal has the flow, lyrics and bombastic build-up that perfectly captures the essence of what makes El-P and Killer Mike such a wonderful force.
You may well wonder why you’re reading about this on a beer site; the reason for my half-baked analysis above is a simple one: with the media in the state it’s in, I might never get a chance to write about music, so the opportunity afforded by Moon Dog brewing a collab with my favourite hip hop group is too good to pass up.
If you want to know more about the backstory of No Save Point, you can read it here. If, however, you just want to know what it tastes like, I suppose it’s time for that. Pour the hazy, American-Aussie-hopped IPA into a glass and it looks as golden as the metallic gold on the label while, flavour wise, it’s a definite juicebox, one that hits with a combination of peach, guava, passionfruit and gooseberry.
No need to lie, cheat, or steal to get hold of it, either.
