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."

Westmeister (2095) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Bottle. Pours darker mostly clear amber with nice tan head. Aroma is big resinous hops with an equally big toffee maltiness. You can almost smell the heaviness to the beer. Taste is bold piney resin hops and thick caramel, big maltiness but not cloying sweet. Some fruitness, even tropical as well. The booze is certainly there in the finish but too not much. Certainly a hard to catergerize brew, but maybe American strong ale? Ageable? Quite nice.

Bottle. Pours a darker copper color with a light tan head. Nice lacing and head retention. Danky, fruit citrus notes in the nose. Medium mouthfeel. Sweet fruit like start with a medium level of bitterness. Citrus rind. Mild alcohol note in the back end but given the 11% abv, thatís somewhat expected. Pretty smooth and balanced. Like. As the beer warms, notes of pineapple and apricot come out. Still Like.

mikesaum (656) - Newark, Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Pours much darker than I expected since this is listed as a DIPA, kind of looks like a barleywine with a deep amber color and a thin of white head. Aroma is cherries and honey with some resiny hops. Taste is actually waaay smoother than I expected, I was expecting a IBU assault on my palate, but this is pretty balanced, sweet caramel malt and honey, a hint of cherry and even some more tropical fruit ends slightly dry with a bit of a warming boozy finish.

brewskis (123) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - OCT 13, 2012
On tap at the source. Pours a red, amberish color with a very small head. Smells great. Get pineapple, grapefruit, mango, lots of Carmel, pine. Taste starts with the bitter, resinous hoppy flavor. Then turns into a cornucopia of citrus, sweet fruits, and then ends with a sweet, bitter, fruity finish. Very hoppy but very well balanced. Get some rye, spicy flavors. Nice creamy, but oily mouthfeel. A quality beer that is awesome. Would definitely have it again

574deadzone (1223) - North Central, Indiana, USA - OCT 12, 2012
On tap at 7 Monks. Deep amber/ruby pour with a thick toffee cap that left behind some intricate sticky lacing. Nose initially quite sweet with caramel and candy notes followed by a big dose of piney and fruity hops. Taste is very, very sweet and also hugely bitter. Heavier side of medium bodied, oily, sticky, with an active carbonation and a lengthy finish. A nice, huge beer fitting of the occasion and the name.

Tmoney99 (12050) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle shared by b3shine. Poured a clear copper color with large frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate heavy complex hop aroma with a citra tone. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bitter flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a solid beer and very good double IPA.

jtw (1144) - farmington, Michigan, USA - OCT 10, 2012
intense copper liquid with a good amount of carbonation and beige head. spicy and peppery hops aroma with some alcohol heat, and a bit of lingering sweetness behind the hops smells. full-bodied with lots of hops complexity: spice (black and chili pepper, coriander, cardamom) and citrus, resiny and piney as well. very nice beer, and while i canít rate it to 11, it easily gets to 9. Iíll have to keep a few bottles around for a few years...

Draft at Muddy Pig. Pours a clear deep orange with a medium head. Flavor is initially heavy on cherries and ripe fruits, back end is a hop wallop that smacks you in the face. Medium bodied and boozy. Definitely "goes to 11".
