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."

Leighton (18735) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2016
Bottle shared at Kennyís 20k tasting - London. Cheers, Ken! Pours clear amber with a creamy, white head. The nose holds pine, berries and orange peel. Medium sweet flavour with some earthy bitterness, orange rind, grains. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Hard piney and earthy bitterness to finish, with more old and rindy citrus fruits. Eh, just so so.

harrisoni (17352) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2016
Bottle at Madmitch 20k tasting. Hazy amber. Lasting white head. Hoppy aroma. Like a hoppy barley wine aroma. Rather a good sweet beer. Good hop. Good enough.

jtclockwork (14999) - , New Jersey, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Bottle. Pours reddish amber with an off white head. Some lacing. Nose and taste is almost entirely resin, liquified pine and tree sap. Some caramel malt. Too perfumy and piny for me. A big beer thatís a little too big. Maybe this one should only go to 8. Medium body.

mcberko (14675) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 21, 2012
12 oz. bottle, sent from khoffman43 (thanks a lot, Kyle), pours a dark amber with a small beige head. Nose is both very hoppy and malty, with loads of fruity sweet resinous hops and big sweet caramel malts - maltier than a IIPA typically is, probably due to the 11%. Flavour starts with citrusy and grapefruity hops, transitions to tropical fruits and candied sweet caramel malts, shifting back to the bitter hops, which leave a very pleasant astringency along with some fruitiness on the finish. A bit too sweet and malt-heavy for a IIPA for my tastes - something doesnít mesh right here. Decent stuff, but quite flawed.

bhensonb (14172) - 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.

Tmoney99 (13612) - 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.
