From notes on 1/23/12
Finally! I have waited to try this beer for awhile now, and considering the only RR we get in Pittsburgh is Consecration and Temptation (both in my top 10 list no doubt), I was excited to finally have it.
A -- Amber/dark Amber; 1/4"-1/2" white head; nice lacing
S -- Strong pine hops, some grapefruit hops, spicy hops, earthy. Hop aroma is strong and complex.
T -- Hops up front (more grapefruit flavors), followed quickly by toasty malt and a super strong hop finish (more pine flavors)
M -- Medium carbonation, thicker than expected
O -- Amazing! Smooth hops, balanced yet exploding with hop flavor. Highlights hops and how to use them...way more complex than I anticipated. Love it!
