Draft - Hoppy with some malts and spice on the nose. Cloudy amber with thin head. Piney hops with some malts to balance. The cherry is very subtle. A very average IPA with a special ingredient that had very little impact.

On tap. Red pour with a white top. Scent is cherries and hops. Taste is hoppy cherries with a tart finish.

Draft at Tamarack. Pours a very cloudy deep chestnut/tawny, with a thin off-white head, and great lacing. Nose is spicy hops, very light berry notes, though Id be hard put to pick it out as cherry, tart-smelling, with light caramel notes here as well. Flavours of maraschino cherries, spice, pine. This tastes like a dumbed-down Hat Trick Hop IPA with a maraschino liqueur finish. Ill stick to Rye Sally, thanks.

An IPA put in a Jim Beam Barrel for 45 days over a bunch of cherries. Figured its still an IPA but if it needs to be changed to fruit beer so be it. Strange beer. First aroma is big hop presence, floral, resiny, a little bitter grapefruit, second sense is bourbon, wood, light vanilla which then moves into cherry which mixed with the bourbon comes off as medicinal at times. Weird shit. Pours darker amber, with a definite reddish hue, thin offwhite head. Flavors of hop bitterness up front, cherry and bourbon mid palate, a little medicinal, light wood, vanilla, and more hop bitterness in the finish. Light alcohol notes are here and there. Definitely very odd choice to barrel age on cherries but I like weird beer. Not necessarily bad but that porter in a barrel over cherries might be fucking delicious.
