I was in San Diego for Beer Week and SD Taproom had a Russian River tasting. I was in pursuit of Pliny the Elder but got there too late. The only beer left was the Consecration. I am not generally a big fan of the sour beers but this was fantastic. The high alcohol was well-hidden under the many layers of flavor. One of the best beers I have ever had. I can't wait to get the chance to try other beers from this brewer
