COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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."

A: Dark Amber Hue, Passes Some Light, White Head, Decent Lacing S: Molasses, Sweet Bready Malts, Citrus T: Cherries, Pineapple, Sweet Bready Malts, Piney M: Decent Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Mildly Sweet, Mildly Drying Overall, pretty solid for the style and you dont get the booziness at all with a beer of 11% ABV, that pretty impressive on its own.

tectactoe (1658) - Michigan, USA - OCT 10, 2013
UPDATED: APR 8, 2014 Bottle: Deep amber with some red-ish tones mixed in; creamy, off-white head retains itself nicely and leaves a little bit of lacing along the glass. Aroma is largely fruity; orange, pineapple, and sweet grapefruit flesh, coupled with a large dose of hops. Pines, weeds, and a bit of a resinous finish. Taste is unabashed hoppage up front; pine tree, tangerine, grapefruit, melons, hop oils, and a touch of pineapple. Very good balance of bitterness. Malt is understated, given the size of the beer and the style, but thereís still a big, underlying sweetness, lightly toasty and bordering on caramel but never really getting there. Good balance of bitterness throughout. Pretty awesome beer, all around.

Jesterdeal (1842) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Aroma of sweet citrus hop with some malty caramel. Pours red with small white film. Taste is quite bland. Good but tame citrus hop profile. Lots of sugary malt behind it. Too sweet and not hoppy enough. Very disappointing.

marcus (6421) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours reddish amber with a thin beige head and a brown sugar aroma. There is a fruit and molasses flavor with considerable hop bitterness and lots of alcohol heat. Pretty well balanced and quite complex.

bhensonb (10908) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Bottle from mixmasterob - thanks a bunch guy. Pours hazy copper with a slight yellowish beige head. Aroma is fruity brown sugar. Med body. Flavor is fruity (light pitted) with brown sugar. Thereís enough hop to play off the malt. Finishes balanced. Not dry, but definitely bitter.

Braudog (5627) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Bottle. Brown with a bit of a rusty tinge, with a bit of a thin head of foam. Thereís an initially intense, fruity aroma, but it mutes a bit with warmth. The beer drinks with a fun combination of flavors to rival a fruit salad. Itís all backed up with a sturdy, woody, biting maltiness. Good, good stuff. (#5036, 5/26/2013)

FROTHINGSLOSH (4895) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark orange-caramel color with a small foamy orange-tan head that faded and left no lacing. The aroma was orange, grapefruit, peach and yeast. The flavor was bitter pine, orange, a fairly boozy presence and faint notes of caramel and bread. Medium length bitter pine and orange finish. Medium body. Booziness increases the more you drink. Ok.

Glouglouburp (5992) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 20, 2013
In short: A sweet (caramelized-fruity) and bitter (resinous-citrusy) and boozy copper ale. Decent beer. Just another face in the crowd.
How: Bottle 12oz, consumed 5 months after the beer release. Bottle sent to me by tyler_mn, thanks a lot Tyler.
The look: Clear redish-copper body topped by a medium off-white head leaving good lacings on the glass.
In long: This American Strong Ale smells like a Imperial Red Ale with a nose that is bursting with hops resin, baked red berries pie, a bit of booze. Taste is thick creamy caramelized malts, a bit in a sweet pastry, baked red berries, sweet fruits, surprising yeast presence, bitter citrus fruits, green plants/vegetables, sticky hops resin, alcohol heat. Very full body that doesnít. A pleasant generous but very soft carbonation. Obviously quite sweet although not cloying. Some alcohol heat but less than expected for an 11%. Assertive bitterness that stands up to the malt sweetness, surprisingly well balanced monster beer. I canít find anything wrong with it, itís not very aggressive, it is relatively easy to drink, but the whole thing didnít win me over. Lacked a je-ne-sais-quoi to be more than just another sweet-hoppy-boozy monster beer. Quite a few good ratings for this beer, and you would be amazed at the amount of time I have spent on ratebeer trying to find a way to delete other peopleís ratings.
