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.
