Ballast Point mixed 70% Big Eye with 30% Black Marlin and came up with this. Interesting, but not my favorite for sure.

A - A dark Newcastle type brown, near white head, leaves to ring fast. Some cling lace.

S - Hops and cocoa. Almost a fresh wheat berry smell in the background.

T - Confused. It tries to be a porter, it tries to be an IPA. It does neither.

M - Medium body, balance is just confusing. I just don't know.

D - I will drink the growler but I won't have this one again. Fun to try.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

A - Pours a darkish amber colour, frothy slightly off white head that disappears fairly quickly leaving a thin film.

S - Some citrus hopppy aromas with some light sweet candy/toffee apple like malts.

T - Get more like strawberry, earthy taste with some burnt orange peel and mild bitterness at the finish

M - Medium bodied aith light to medium carbonation

O - Not bad, a little bland but very drinkable on a cold evening.
