Per bellsbeer.com/blog , "This One Goes to 11 Ale opens with bright, juicy aromas such as tropical fruits & ripe cherries, largely derived from massive kettle & dry-hop additions of Southern Hemisphere hop varieties such as Galaxy, Motueka, and Summer. The citrus & resinous pine notes of the Pacific Northwest hop family are also well represented, making their presence known through Simcoe, Citra, and the newly released Mosaic varietal, just to name a few. A wide range of specialty malts anchor the hops to this IMPERIAL RED ALE, contrasting the assertive bitterness & juicy aromatics with a robust, toasty depth of flavor. Fermented with Bellís signature house ale yeast, This One Goes to 11 Ale finishes with a lingering warmth."

Pours a clear darkish orange color with a nice amount of creamy head that lingers a long time. Nice complex aroma. Getting tropical fruit, cherries, pine, caramel malt, toasted malt, and grapefruit. Taste is pretty intense up front. Huge hop taste, mostly tropical and citrus. Moderate bitterness comes through in the middle along with a big caramel malt flavor. Finish is smooth and a bit creamy, big alcohol warming from the 11% abv but itís not too harsh. Pretty thick mouthfeel and a bit oily too. Very interesting Imperial Red. I really liked this.

Pours a beautiful deep red, amber color with a frothy off white head that disappears pretty quickly. Sweet malts, orange, some alcohol. Bitter taste, sweet orange, sweet malts, some alcohol in there, caramel, toasty, some pine at the back sweet juicy hops. Not too impressive but overall a great brew!

TheEpeeist (3586) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2012
12 oz bottle. Almost clear brown with a pocked beige head. Nose is pine, caramel, orange peel and gin. Resiny, medium to full body, some warming; iím surprised itís not sticky at all. Taste is mostly bitter and hoppy but subdued with barely noticeable toffee and honey. Grapefruit pith, tangerine and quinine; more depth as it warms. A big beer with balance.

Finally just decided to jump in and have a bottle for myself, at 11% you taste virtually every single ABV in the brew. Aroma is raw hop character, definately some pine comes out on this one, with some citrus character to it. Alcohol burn in the back of the throat makes this one less pleasant than it could have been had they not tried to get this to 11.

12oz bottle from Downer Wine and Spirits. Pours a reddish brown color with a tan head. Aroma is hoppy, tropical fruit, mango, pineapple, some pine. Medium on the palate with smooth carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, bready, caramel, some pine hops, with a light, bitter hop finish.

mteehead (9) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 1, 2012 does not count
Bottle pours a dark copper color. Even a novice like me can pick out the pine and citrus aroma. The alcohol is present but masked slightly by the hop aroma and calmed by the malt.... but itís definitely there. After a few big sips of this one, Iím glad I have 11 more bottles of it!

mcmd (315) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 1, 2012
pours amber red with small off white head. Aroma is sweet bready malt with lots of hops. Taste similar with a nice balance of sweet malt and hops, a bit syrupy on the mouthfeel. Really good beer

Draft at mad mex Monroeville. Pours orange with a thin white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Slight citrus note on the nose. Definitely hides its 11% well. A bit of hop flavor on the tongue. Finishes clean. I was kind of bored with this one.
