3.63/5 rDev -0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
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.
Serving type: growler
