look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Clear deep amber body with nice dense off-white head. Retention last till the bottom of the glass and tons of nice lacing all the way down.

S - Spicy and sweet cherries

T - Big pine and floral hops followed by dark smokey spicy malts.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Very sticky and resinous.

O - Great brew. Definitely a nice transition beer into the back half of summer.
