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 Bell’s signature house ale yeast, This One Goes to 11 Ale finishes with a lingering warmth."

On tap at Global Brew. Pours a golden amber with a thin white head. Aroma is wet bread and mild hop spice. Taste is sweet caramel malt, rye and a pronounced hop bitterness along with a little licorice. Very well balanced, but with a mouthcoating character. The 11% ABV is certainly noticable, but not at all at the level you would expect. Dynamite good!

Deep amber pour with a small white head. Aroma is sweet caramel maltiness, toasted bread, and citrusy hops. Chewy caramel and toast on the front fading into resin citrus juiciness. Medium thick body, warming alcohol and a long bitter finish.

Bottle. Pours a murky deep copper with think tan head that quickly dissipates and some solid lacing. Notes of sweet caramel, burnt toffee, vanilla, citrus, pine, nail polish remover, grain alcohol. Too boozy and slightly astringent for my taste.

No idea how this is rated so low. I think it is basically Hopslam with a tad more bite. Savoring my last few bottles.

I can see why people love this, I can see why people hate this. Similar to a 1.5 month old hopslam in the hop profile. Malty, mildly sweet, good carbonation. Juicy hops. Lots of caramel. A bit faded hop character. Basically a good American barley wine, a terrible IPA, and a fantastic double red ale. Hmmmm.

Bottle tasted at Oxford Tasting Nov 2012. Pours a deep red, with a nice sticky head. Big hop grapefruit aroma. Caramel and citrus hop flavors play nice together, bitterness up front, finishes long with a thick mouthfeel,. Should age nicely.

Bottled shared at Sybarite Pig. Thanks Steve and Danny. Pours a very hazy, creamy looking light red. Very little head with mild lace. Pine, cherries, alphalpha, and malt. Taste of pine, pine resin, hay, cherries, berries, with a quick bitter finish. The aftertaste of pine really stays with you. Very good.

This beer is on tap at Mad mex and what a treat, golden reddish with modest head. Plenty of hops and some good level of malts. the alcohol plays just a little too much but not surprising at this level.

12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy deep orange copper color with a small off white froth. Aroma is mostly piney, some definitely malt base, sweet and bready with a slight cake note, some citric fruits coming out as well, marmalade and sweet orange. Flavor has a bit of oxidation, but with the malt backbone it gives sort of a barleywine character to it, whoa just noticed its 11 percent, really easy drinking for that abv. picking up some of the tropical character, and piney resinous hops, still with that sweet malt. Medium to medium full body and a crisp carbonation. Interesting beer.

Poured at JK O donnells from a bottle. Dark amber pour with large white head. Strong citrus and pineapple aromas. Tropical fruit and citrus taste. Very strong aftertaste.
